WEDDINGS AT THE MANSION

Only 17 miles north of downtown Philadelphia, on top of a hill sits The Highlands. This elegant, two-centuries-old Georgian-style mansion is surrounded by 44 acres of rolling hills and beautifully landscaped gardens. The Highlands offers a unique setting for your special day. Completed in 1796, the mansion features fifteen foot ceilings and bright spacious rooms in addition to a 2 acre formal garden and the ambiance of the surrounding estate.

 

Weddings and celebrations take place in four rooms on the first floor connected by the grand hall. The total area is 2,441 square feet. There are three powder rooms on the first floor. A beautiful staircase at the end of the hall is perfect for the bride to descend for her wedding ceremony, or for the newly married couple to greet their guests. On the second floor, two rooms and a powder room are available for the bridal party only.

 

Two covered terraces facing the woods and the gardens may be used to entertain your guests. Weather permitting, your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception may be held in the garden. The mansion can also accommodate a wedding reception for up to 120 guests for a sit down dinner. There is a tented option for larger capacity guests. 

 

Wedding rentals of The Highlands is for five hours and we only have one event per day. There is parking for 70 cars but valet parking is recommended for over one hundred people. This beautiful mansion could be the venue of your dreams.
