About Us

Glen Foerd on the Delaware is a historic riverfront wedding venue located 20 minutes from downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With a sweeping waterfront view and 18 acres of park-like landscapes and woods, this property is truly beautiful. It's so close to Philadelphia but feels a world away!

Facilities and Capacity
Glen Foerd on the Delaware can accommodate up to 300 guests. The historic mansion is yours for the day! Clients have wonderful choices, including both outdoor and indoor spaces along the riverfront, boathouse and manicured lawns. There are endless opportunities for unqiue photo settings! The views of the sparkling Delaware River are spectacular and make for lovely backdrops, as do the mansion's porches and gorgeous indoor rooms. Up the grand staircase, there's an art museum on the second floor, just down the hall from the sunlit Bridal Suite (with its own bathroom). The groom and his groomsmen can get ready in the basement Rathskellar, fashioned after a German beer hall. Guests can enjoy cocktails on the stone terrace just outside the mansion, wander the riverfront paths and visit the boathouse. The customizable Riverside Pavilion includes a dance floor and built-in bar area, a beautifully draped ceiling and the ability to decorate to suit your vision. A huge covered porch area faces the river and allows for fire pits with s'mores - a popular choice!

  • As soon as we went to view Glen Foerd, we knew it was perfect. The nature surrounding the mansion is picturesque for any wedding, and the Delaware River makes for a beautiful back drop. The inside of the mansion is GORGEOUS. We received SO many compliments on the venue and how absolutely beautiful it was. Our guests loved taking pictures as the sun set by the river, our outdoor ceremony by the fall trees, and the historic mansion itself. The reception tent is another stunner. The roof with the lights are beautiful, and the decor was perfect. There is a noise restriction for the venue due to it being in a neighborhood, and our reception was over by 10pm. These were things initially I was worried about, but the music was loud enough and everyone was still dancing and having a great time the whole night. We definitely didnt need to end at 11 to have a good time because our guests were all WORN out, haha. I would definitely recommend this venue to future brides and grooms! Photos b... Read more
