  • Winterthur was a wonderful venue and it was our DREAM wedding. The venue was beautiful, everyone was quick to respond to our needs and requests and SO wonderful to work with. The food was delicious and the gardens were spectacular. I can not speak more highly of everything about the place - from the people, the grounds, the decor, the food, the professionalism, etc. I could go on and on! Book this venue for whatever you need -- it will be worth every penny and they will help make this experience as smooth and perfect as possible!

  • I really can't say enough about the professionalism and skill provided by Ken and his staff. They ensured every detail was taken care of, and we didn't have a single thing to worry about the day of the wedding. They provided transportation for all our guests around the grounds, and set up all the decor we provided. The food was beyond delicious! All of our guests told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to, and we have Winterthur's staff to thank for that.

  • I lived in Chester County for 20 years and never knew this place existed and I am SO happy I found it! I was referred here by Longwood Gardens, it was my perfect wedding location. I was trying to find a happy medium between a botanical garden, rustic, outdoors, upscale, fancy but not stuffy, and Winterthur hit the mark as far as aesthetics go. Everything from the pictures to the guest experience was breathtaking due to the natural elements and history located at Winterthur. The staff went above and beyond every expectation I could have ever had. We worked with Ken, the General Manager of Restaurant Associates (Winterthur's onsite catering company) and couldn't have been more pleased. He worked after hours, before hours, and during hours to make sure we felt comfortable with every detail. I did not have a wedding planner and with Ken, I didn't need one. Our day was smooth (despite the downpour for the 3 days leading up to our wedding) and the food was amazing! I had compliments... Read more

  • What a Wedding!!!!! I can't begin to express enough my feelings as to the magnitude of the outstanding service provided by this venue. First of all, the estate and it's buildings and grounds were just magnificent. My daughter was married outdoors at the Reflecting Pool site and had the cocktail hour in the Gallery. Both sites were beautiful and certainly presented the "wow" factor. The reception was held in the Visitor Center building which was transformed into a mystical place for all to enjoy. Catering by Restaurant Associates provided the food and beverages. The quality of the food was beyond my expectations! Service by the wait staff was impeccable. I must mention Jen Lamb, Catering Sales Manager. She was instrumental in making my daughter's wedding a grand success. Jen personalized everything and made us feel assured it would turn out exactly as planned. Of course, every wedding has it's little moments - but Jen made them all go away almost before they happened. It seems she can... Read more

  • When I first laid eyes on Winterthur, I couldn't imagine a more beautiful, romantic setting for our wedding. The gardens, the house, the entire estate--everything is amazing, especially when the gardens are in bloom. We had our ceremony by the Reflecting Pool and the reception at the Visitor Center--- Jen, Winterthur's event coordinator was SO on top of every single detail-- because of her, the evening went off without a hitch and everything came together beautifully. We received an overwhelming number of compliments-- everyone thought the food was amazing (catered by Winterthur's Restaurant Associates)! There are also tons of different options for a wedding, depending upon the number of people and the feel you're going for. I would definitely recommend Winterthur!!

  • Nicole and her staff at Restaurant Associates did a fantastic job! Planning my wedding was so easy- they thought of everything! On the day of my wedding, everything went perfectly- it was beautiful, the food was amazing and all of my guests are still raving about it! Choosing Winterthur for our ceremony and reception was the best decision we could have made!

  • Within the first hour of our initial visit to Winterthur, we knew it was exactly where we wanted to have our wedding. From the beautiful gardens to the spectacular architecture of the buildings, it had everything we were looking for. The reflecting pool offered a stunning setting for our ceremony and cocktail hour as well as many of our photos. Everyone, and I mean literally everyone, was extremely committed to making our big day absolutely unforgettable. The venue's catering company, Restaurant Associates, Inc. was incredible as well. When our original event planner left Winterthur just a few months prior to our event, Ken Warner, the Food & Beverage Director, stepped in and didn't miss a beat. He was very organized, easy to work with and responsive and had such a calm demeanor that it put everyone else at ease. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him and cannot thank him enough. The cocktail hour and reception set up, the staff and the food were all perfection. If you select this as... Read more

  • Winterthur provided a memorable experience for my daughter and our guests when they hosted her garden wedding and reception. The site was so beautiful and provided so many options for pictures and wonderful experiences for our guests – including free access to the museum, exhibits and gardens for the weekend. The staff, particulrly Ken Warner of Restaurant Associates, was very helpful, flexible and engaged throughout the planning process. The fees include everything, but allow for optional upgrades – we did not encounter any hidden costs, making Winterthur a great value. The event itself was beautifully organized and the staff took care of the details graciously and seamlessly. My daughter and her new husband, who has a professional culinary background, were adamant that the food be as memorable as the site – and it was. Ken and his staff tweaked the menu until it met their high expectations.

  • Winterthur is a beautiful venue to hold a wedding. We were very impressed by the elegance of the grounds and the professionalism of the staff. They were also very open to our customizing and our many, many questions.

  • We absolutely loved this venue! The service was excellent and they attended to every detail with precision and sensitivity. The food was absolutely the best wedding food we've ever had! We were intending to be married in the garden, but rain forced us inside to the entryway of the museum...and it was GORGEOUS! My only real critique of the venue was the outdated decor of the reception room. While it can be, "dolled-up," it's still in dire need of a make-over. Overall, highly recommended!

  • I fell in love with this place from my very first visit. Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that all of their promotions about how they "handle everything for you" are flat-out lies. For months I called and I e-mailed. My coordinator was Jen Lamb and it was like pulling teeth the whole time. I was interested in purchasing several upgrades, but eventually I had to give up on all of that because it clear that it was never going to happen. I thought I might be able to finally get more information as my wedding date approached, but still nothing. Right up to the night of my rehearsal, I had so much mental anguish caused by their negligence. Then things got really rough. The night of the rehearsal Jen makes a VERY embarrassing announcement that our ceremony location will be changed without ever saying a word to me or my fiancé. Obviously, I went to pieces. Eventually my dad was able to work the problem out, but I was up the whole night before my wedding having nightmares about w... Read more

  • We worked with Rachel, one of the wedding planners there. There were some minor mistakes made (we asked for a square cake but got circle cake, during our tasting received some wrong selections), but overall very very good. The food at the wedding is excellent. They take great care of you. It's a little pricey I think, but if you go with Winterthur you don't have to worry about catering and you can do the ceremony and the reception in one place, so it's convenient. We had all kinds of centerpiece materials, decorations, name cards, etc. and they took care of setting up all of it - perfectly. You can trust them.

  • Bobbi is wonderful at arranging a wedding - we had a lot of handmade decor items and she was on top of everything - everything was in the right place for our guests - the only thing that didn't go well was a) the tables were not arranged correctly, which made for some akward family strife ("no, you're table was supposed to be up front, not way in the back...") and the strawberries came out at the wrong time. (no biggie) The food was the BEST ANYONE had ever had at a wedding, and the setting is absolutely gorgeous!
