Barn weddings are beloved for their beautiful countryside views, rustic ambiance, and abundant space for all your merriment. Below are a few – though not all – of Morby Photography’s favorite barn venues in southeastern Pennsylvania.
https://www.meredithmanorvenue.com/ · 2270 Pottstown Pike, Pottstown, PA 19465
We like Meredith Manor so much, we also featured them in our article about our favorite Chester County wedding venues!
Meredith Manor features exquisite landscaping for an outdoor ceremony and two indoor reception venues to choose from – the historic Fieldstone Barn and the newly built Country Barn. Delicious inhouse catering is included, simplifying your planning process, and they offer a shortlist of recommended vendors (including Morby Photography!). Great wedding photography features like the koi pond, the unique iron gazebo, lavish landscaping, and a dedicated outdoor ceremony space offer many options to beautifully capture your day. You can’t go wrong with exceptional service, simplified planning, and a stunning location!
Barn on Bridge
https://robertryancatering.com/barn-on-bridge/ · 385 Bridge St, Collegeville, PA 19426
This 1700’s dairy farm is bursting with charm and all the modern amenities you need for a perfect wedding! The 18th century barn has been refurbished with air conditioning, restrooms, and handicap accessibility. The lower gardens, which overlook a creek and a lovely wooded field, are a perfect spot for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or a quiet getaway area for your guests. The upper gardens feature a built-in rain plan, as the permanent tent there can shelter your guests during any inclement weather. And the carriage house has been turned into a hospitality suite with two stories of luxurious space for your wedding party to get ready. Barn on Bridge offers everything you need while retaining a very rural vibe.
Brandywine Manor House
https://longwoodgardens.org/ · 120 Germany Hollow Rd, West Brandywine Township, PA 19344
Also featured in our Chester County favorites, the Brandywine Manor House dates back to the 1740’s, lending a historic, rustic charm to this gorgeous venue. Couples have their choice of four outdoor ceremony locations – Lakeview, Glen, Oak Grove, and Garden Terrace, each possessing their own natural beauty as well as man-made additions like footbridges, gazebos, and terraces. There are also two indoor ceremony locations inside the Manor Barn, which is climate controlled for ultimate comfort. Your reception can be held in the Manor Barn or the Brandywine Tent. Also included are a Bridal Suite and a Groom’s Room for all your pre-wedding preparations. No matter your vision for your wedding, Brandywine Manor House offers elegance, comfort, and endless possibilities.
The Barn at Silverstone
https://longwoodgardens.org/ · 62 Bowman Rd, Lancaster, PA 17602
The 19th century stone barn for which this venue is named has been meticulously restored, retaining all its character and charm while adding upscale bathrooms and air conditioning. The Barn at Silverstone offers three unique indoor locations and several outdoor locations scattered across its picturesque grounds. Parking is paved and handicap accessible. Their all-inclusive catering package includes a three-course dinner and a day-of coordinator to keep everything running smoothly. And the wedding party has a full run of several historic buildings and 37 acres of farmland to capture the perfect photographs. Couples also have access to floor plan software that makes reception seating a breeze!
https://tylerarboretum.org/ · 515 Painter Rd, Media, PA 19063
Tyler Arboretum is far more than just a wedding venue – it’s a sanctuary dedicated to preservation, horticulture, and history. But it also does weddings so well with its beautifully refurbished stone barn in the midst of 650 acres of gardens, trails, and unique habitats. The natural beauty of Tyler Arboretum is unmatched, with countless locations for gorgeous photographs and magical ceremonies. Historic charm meets a breathtaking landscape that changes with the seasons. Full-service catering is provided through an exclusive caterer to simplify the planning process.
The Barn at Stoneybrooke
https://www.thebarnatstoneybrooke.com/ · 4740 Lower Valley Rd, Atglen, PA 19310
The Barn at Stoneybrooke looks like the setting of a fairytale, with its English Quaker Barn and its ceremony location overlooking the valley. There’s even a new indoor ceremony option in front of a gorgeous stone fireplace. The wedding party can get their photos taken beside sparkling brooks and sunlit woods. But what couples really rave about is the service, both from Stoneybrooke’s owner and the provided day-of coordinator. All staff work together flawlessly to execute your dream wedding!
Terrain at Styers
https://www.terrainevents.com/locations/glen-mills · 914 Baltimore Pike, Glen Mills, PA 19342
Terrain at Styer’s offers a more intimate but undeniably charming eclectic country setting just 40 minutes outside Philadelphia. This historic nursery has been a Philly landmark for over 100 years. Ceremonies take place in a secluded oasis beneath ancient sycamore trees and a wooden Wedding Temple brought all the way from India, with a backup indoor location available. Instead of a traditional barn, your reception will take place in the “Garden Shed” – which is certainly far more striking than any shed you have back home. The historic Mushroom House has been transformed into the perfect bride and groom suites. For those of you looking for a bit of a twist on a rustic wedding, Terrain at Styers can provide a truly unique experience.
The Gables at Chadds Ford
https://www.thegablesatchaddsford.com/ · 423 Baltimore Pike, Chadds Ford, PA 19317
The Gables at Chadds Ford offers understated elegance for your country wedding. Its most stunning feature is a terrace of landscaped gardens, a three tiered fountain, and a waterfall. This breathtaking space is perfect for magical photos, outdoor ceremonies, and even your reception, and can be tented in case of rain. Your reception may also be held in The Gable’s 1897 bank barn. Food is provided by the onsite restaurant, which prides themselves in using fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients. Guests will be wowed by the entire experience!
Harvest View Barn at Hershey Farms
https://harvestviewbarn.com/ · 338 Sunnyburn Rd, Elizabethtown, PA 17022
The panoramic farmland views of Hershey Farms cannot be beat. The restored Harvest View Barn overlooks a fairytale pond complete with a footbridge to a gazebo, and maybe even a swan or two. Every inch of the 450-acre property is picture perfect. So is the two-story restored barn, which includes a grand fireplace, sweeping staircase, and a balcony overlooking the pond. Harvest View Barn also has climate control, modern restrooms, handicapped accessibility, and even your own parking attendant to make your wedding day comfortable for all your guests. The restored farmhouse is also yours for the day and ready to accommodate your entire wedding party in all pre-event festivities. There’s even a kitchen that can be used for light refreshments!
