What Our Clients Say
When we first saw the Merion on the Knot, we knew we HAD to get married here. We cannot say enough about the Merion, from the minute we met Stephanie at the Philadelphia Bridal Show we felt like we were working with family. Stephanie and the Merion team were very accommodating, kind, and easy to work with the entire time. We had our reception in the Skylight Ballroom, it was the most incredible experience in our entire lives. The Merion is so unique, and I can guarantee you’ve never seen anything like it before. The food is INCREDIBLE, from cocktail hour, to dinner, and dessert. The cocktail hour is unlike any other, the amount of options is unreal. The staff made sure that my husband and I actually ate, and also boxed up our left over dinner, and dessert. That was a really nice touch, it was so nice to enjoy it the next day. I wish we could re-live this day. Thank you to Stephanie and the staff for giving us the best day ever. We know that everyone else who picks the Merion will have the same experience as we did.
I can’t say enough about how much we loved working with The Merion. As a gay couple we wanted a venue who wouldn’t treat us any differently. From our first visit, we felt at home and welcomed. Nicole and Stephanie worked with us throughout this process and were both perfect. They paid attention to every detail, established great communication and tailored our wedding to suit our every need (no matter how out of the box our requests were). Our guests RAVED about the food and loved how beautiful the venue itself was. It was the perfect location for our wedding, the Palazzo ballroom will always hold a special place in our hearts.
When we first sat down with our Wedding Coordinator, we were not ready for everything the Merion had to offer. They spoke to us about the menu while serving Champagne, fruit, giant shrimp, and even some desserts. The menu was easily 10 pages and almost everything was included! They were super accommodating about everything when it came to our wedding. The big day ran smoothly and all my guest continue to rave about how amazing the venue and the food was. This is a must pick venue for sure. You will not be disappointed.
My husband and I got married in the Skylight Ballroom. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue. It was simply amazing. The room as beautiful and the staff was so attentive and kind to everyone. The food was amazing, and the Merion even had some surprises for my husband and I. This was a nice touch which really meant a lot to us. All our guests are still raving about how wonderful our wedding was. I was a little nervous that you might be able to hear other events happening in the other ballrooms, but that was not the case at all. It felt like our wedding was the only one going on that night. I am so glad we chose this venue.
The Merion from day 1 was nothing but warm, welcoming, and attentive to what my husband and I wanted. The staff is very responsive to every and any questions we had and really worked with the vision we wanted. The venue itself is well-kept and beyond gorgeous of what a wedding venue should be like. The Skylight Room is what makes the difference and the space is perfect for intimate and larger events. We had a two day event planned, and the planning process was nothing but smooth and organized. Cliff and the team are beyond helpful and there are not enough words to describe how accommodating everyone at the Merion is. Definitely recommend for any future brides and grooms!
My husband and I used the Merion for our two weddings on October 4th and October 5th (Indian and American). The Indian wedding was at Skylight ballroom and the American ceremony and reception was was at North Garden and Palazzo ballroom, respectively. The place is absolutely stunning!!! The picture will come out beautiful at this venue.
The entire staff is responsive, professional, and do everything above-and-beyond to make your wedding day perfect! Maitre D, captain, bridal attendant were great!
