If you are looking for a truly unique and magical wedding experience than your heart will completely soar once you visit the Rockwood Carriage House - Greenery Caterers. First of all, Patti, Craig, Margaret, and ESPECIALLY Michelle, were absolutely phenomenal. Their attention to... Read More detail, quick responses, kindness, enthusiasm, organization, and genuine love for creating the best wedding experience ever is clear from your first point of contact with the venue and staff and continues on throughout the entire planning process. After researching venues in the Delaware Valley Region that were affordable, rustic, historic, and unique, BUT also had all the elegance and conveniences of an upscale/innovative event space, I chose the Rockwood Carriage House and I couldn’t be more thrilled! The scenery and unique grounds offer ample opportunities for your photographer and videographer to capture every moment of your day with a truly breathtaking backdrop. The historic building itself is the definition of rustic elegance and offers a magical ambiance; the beautiful carriage doors in the reception room, wide plank wood floors, wall of floor to ceiling windows, stone/brick walls, the industrial touches of metal and wood beams, the extra large elevator that can fit your entire wedding party and then some! Now onto the FOOD! So delicious and endless… your guests will rave about how every time they turned around there was another tray of appetizers and that the food was amazing! One of my favorite parts of working with Greenery Caterers was how flexible they were with helping us make our wedding vision come to life. My wife and I decided to have a traditional Celtic hand-fasting ceremony in the upstairs gallery suite and Michelle was able to create a seating circle that gave us the experience we wanted, with so many candles and string lights! Now on to Michelle!!! I can't say enough - so lovely, funny, creative, and flexible with every last detail. She helps make everything run smoothly like your very own spectacular wedding planner! It truly was exactly what we had imagined our winter magical wedding to be, and all our guests can't stop raving about it. BEST DAY EVER.

Everything was terrific, from our first meeting with the staff, right through to the end of the reception. We had the ceremony upstairs, and the reception downstairs, and although the room isn't for a large wedding, it was perfect for us. It never felt cramped, and we were...

The outsides settings are beautiful for pictures, including the herb garden and mansion. It was truly a wonderful place to be married, no complaints!

Rockwood is a Beautiful venue. Rustic and classy at the same time. It was a great choice for us. The grounds and the carriage house are immaculate and the staff is wonderful. We used the Greenery caterers also, and they were exceptional! I will review them separately.

The venue itself is beautiful and perfect for the "rustic" but classy look we were going for. We invited 190 guests but had 170 attend and at first I was a little bit nervous about the spacing but 170 fit very comfortably and I can see how they can fit around 200. It was much... Read More more spacious than I thought. The staff is excellent and you can certainly tell that they are particular with who they hire. Everyone was so professional and friendly and it showed that they enjoyed their jobs which is hard to find in the hospitality industry. The food was delicious and we had many guests tell us it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. The buffet worked out great and everyone got through the line super quickly. Overall, we had no complaints whatsoever and thought that they did an amazing job in making our reception go seamlessly. We were so happy with everything and we would 100% recommend it to others. Thank you Greenery Caterers!

Read More Caterers staff was great to work with. Calls and emails were returned promptly, they were accommodating to our budget, and made helpful suggestions when we were unsure of what we wanted. The food was DELICIOUS and beautifully presented. Five months later, and I'm still hearing rave reviews from our guests. We've attended several weddings since, and no one else's food was as good as what we had at the Carriage House (and I know for a fact that some of these friends paid a lot more than what we did). In short, we were thrilled with every aspect of our wedding at the Carriage House and would highly recommend it.
