  • My son had his wedding at the Merion. He knew he wanted to have it there as soon as we looked at it. We had looked at several other places and none compared to what the Merion offered for the same price.The new outdoor garden was beautiful for the ceremony . The skylight room was perfect. The staff was terrific. We worked with Stephanie. She was easy to work with and very helpful. Everything was perfect from start to finish. If your looking for a venue this is the one to choose. The food was outstanding and so much of it at cocktail hour, dinner, and the desserts . People still are talking about how much they enjoyed the wedding there and how good the food was. Thanks to Stephanie and the staff at the Merion they had a fairy tale wedding.

  • Our experience with The Merion could not have been better! They really know how to wow you on your first visit, but I can attest that the service and end result were just as thoughtful and fabulous. Sue is the greatest! My husband and I live in Oregon, so you can imagine it might have been tough to plan a wedding cross-country. Not with Sue! Sue was gracious in responding quickly and thoughtfully to my many questions. She cared about how our day went and was genuinely happy for us. Towards the end of our planning, I slowed down on asking questions - I felt confident Sue and the Merion staff would have everything under control, and they certainly did! In addition to Sue, we had WONDERFUL experiences working with Rich (banquet manager), Samuel (maitre'd), Debbie (head server), Diane and Kim (pastry chefs), and Cliff (manager). As for the wedding night, the space and evening turned out to be absolutely stunning, and we could not have been happier with the end result. Guests were wow... Read more

  • Working with Stephanie at the Merion was so easy and the Merion staff made our day absolutely perfect. Once we saw the Merion, we knew that no other venue would compare. The amount and quality of food was talked about all night by each of our guests and the Merion was so flexible with helping us to create a Russian/American Wedding and mixing our culture in the way that food and alcohol is served (bottles on the table and extra tiered food on the tables). Each staff person was so lovely and you get the sense they are really a family there. Everything was perfect and the venue is beautiful. Seriously, go visit the venue and you will be blown away as we were.

  • OMG! You won't know what you're missing until you have experienced the Merion. My mom and I attended their Bridal show and it was AMAZING! The food, the hospitality, the venue is GORGEOUS! We immediately scheduled a personal tour and booked soon after for my June wedding! PHENOMENAL!!!!! The waitstaff and Samuel were beyond what any bride and groom could expect. So attentive, courteous and just amazing! I highly recommend the Merion for any event!!! My husband and I are trying to find another reason to celebrate there.

  • I hardly have the words to express how wonderful The Merion is. My husband and I got married last weekend in the Palazzo ballroom, and worked with Sue as our coordinator. She is OUTSTANDING!!!! My family and I are actually disappointed that we won't be seeing and talking to her anymore now that the wedding is over. While we worked most closely with Sue, everyone at The Merion was absolutely incredible! The day of the wedding, everything was flawless. All the little details that we discussed with Sue were taken care of. Alex, Val and Marion also worked with us on the day of the wedding, and they were also spectacular. They took care of us and made sure that we had the wedding of our dreams --- which we definitely did! Our guests are still raving about the food and the beauty of The Merion. Cocktail hour and dessert are above and beyond!!!!!! I would highly recommend The Merion!!! They are truly amazing in every single way!!

  • Our wedding coordinator Stephanie has been SO helpful and kept us on track for everything, walking us through the due dates, picking our options, setting up tastings, etc. Thanks to Stephanie our wedding day went perfectly and she helped us resolve last minute missing attendees/wedding crashers at our wedding and ensured everything went smoothly. We loved the venue not only because it is beautiful but because of all the great food, open bar, and excellent service. All of our guests raved about how the food was amazing and that they were so full at the end of the night, they could barely dance lol. The Merion is hands down the best!

  • My husband and I had our Wedding Reception at the Merion in the Palace Ballroom. Stephanie was our coordinator and she's just fabulous! She helped us make decisions throughout the whole process and explained every detail all while being easy to work with and always getting the job done. We couldn't be happier with the service that Steph and the Merion provided. Our guests raved about the food and how elegant and classy the ambiance was. The food at the Merion is high quality and delicious, from cocktail hour, to the formal dinner into cake and desserts and all the way through to the pork sandwiches given to our guests as they left our wedding. The shrimp cocktail at the seafood station was HUGE and cooked perfectly and the crab cakes were full of flavor! Exactly what you expect when seafood is served at an event (so worth it!). They gave my husband and me our entrée dishes which included each of the 3 entrees. What a classy touch, we were thrilled, the filet mignon was tender and went... Read more

  • I'm so excited that I booked The Merion for my wedding in August!! Stephanie was awesome - prompt, sweet, and genuine. All key characteristics I truly needed during this process. I will be back to review again post-wedding, but thought I'd share that so far so good! Excited!

  • I had my wedding here this past weekend and could not have been happier!!! Stephanie was a pleasure to work with through the whole planning process, as she was very responsive and helpful. I had a huge Indian wedding so used 3 different rooms for different events. We did our ceremony in the skylight room - which was perfect. Lunch in the empire room and reception in the palazzo. They are currently constructing an outside area which looks beautiful - should be done in the next 2 weeks. We used outside caterers so can't say anything about the food but we were given merions desert and it was amazing- they literally filled an entire room (our cocktail area) with desert- so much of it!! The only reason they are getting 4/5 stars is for the following: - the bridal suites are SO small and for us who had do an outfit change before the reception had to share one tiny suite for both the bride and groom. This was very annoying, and the merion should really upgrade the size/quantity of these... Read more

  • WOW! The Merion was the most perfect location for me and my husband to have our wedding! Everything was wonderful! Stephanie, our wedding coordinator was a joy to work with. She answered all of my emails within in hours of me sending one, she eased all of my worries, and on the day of the wedding she was there for me when it really counted. I loved working with Stephanie, she was just perfect! The Palace ballroom was stunning, the food, wedding cake, and desserts were delicious, and my husband and I received many compliments from our guests. The only glitch I would say was that there were 2 other events going when the photographers were trying to take pictures. I feel like the Merion should have had better crowd control because people kept getting in the way. Other than that The Merion is wonderful!!

  • From the moment you walk into The Merion you are treated like family. Once we toured the incredible venue, they provided us with a cheese, fruit, and cracker plate along with beverages. We hadn't even booked our wedding yet and were treated with such hospitality and generosity . From the incredible menu that's provided for the evening to the elegance of the venue, we did not have to look any further for a venue. We can not wait to get married here next April!
