What an amazing event. My wedding was 12/31/2014. Terri wright the maître de helped me incorporate NYE into our wedding. The food was delicious everyone keeps saying it was the best wedding they have ever attended. Soup to nuts, top shelf bar that was open all evening, and cheesesteaks at midnight. I have been to many weddings and NO one beats lazaretto for their prices. The service was impeccable, there was not a moment my husband and I went without a drink or someone asking what they could do for us. Thank you to the lazaretto ballroom for making our event the unforgettable ❤️

I recently got married the end of November and we had our reception at the lazaretto, hands down best decision we could of had. Terri made everything SO easy for us and helped guide us in every which way we needed help with. She pointed us to flowers, photographer, dj, tuxes and the bakery and all of which were fabulous. Everyone was so easy to work with and very hands on and efficient. Every time we had a question or concern and contacted Terri she answered right away and helped guide us. Terri was very easy to talk to and gave us such good advice on every topic. Everyone complimented on how fabulous of a time they had and how hard working the staff was. We want to thank everyone for making our day so very special!

I don't even know where to begin. The Lazaretto was the perfect place to have our wedding and ceremony. Not only was it convenient for all of our guests, the employees were all amazing. Terri is hands down the best wedding coordinator we have ever met. She was so quick with getting back to us when we had questions and she made us feel so comfortable with our whole experience. Every single guest raved about the food and kept saying that they couldn't get over how beautiful and elegant our wedding was. It was affordable, not overpriced and well worth every penny we spent. We were married on the outside patio area that was decorated so beautifully. I will never forget how amazing and beautiful our wedding was and I couldn't have made it so perfect without Terri and the wonderful staff.

Lazaretto Ballroom was fantastic from start to finish. Being able to have details such as linens, centerpieces, cake and beverages included in the wedding package made the process stress free. The wedding coordinator, Terri, is terrific and so helpful and responsive through the entire process. We got great advice but also felt we had the freedom to add our special touches that made our day uniquely our own. Everyone raved about the food and the beautiful set up. The chef, Michael, and the staff even set up a "dueling hours d'oeuvre station" that had MD crab cakes and philly cheese steaks to reflect our "hometown cuisine". The suggested vendors from the hall were all fantastic, and because they had worked so closely with Lazaretto, the whole process was worry free. On the day of our wedding, we had not a single worry about the reception as every detail was handled with professionalism and care. Thank you so much!

Background before you read my perspective below. My wife and I are college-educated, middle class (multi-cultural) Americans that enjoy weddings and formal celebrations, but we don't think you should put yourself into debt to host such events. We're not classless penny-pinchers, we just try to be realistic.

Lazaretto Ballroom is definitely one of the best kept secrets in the area. It is a spacious venue that can be decorated for any modern or classic look, as desired. Terri and the the rest of the service staff are extremely friendly, flexible and attentive to any of your needs and wants leading up to and during the event. The food from their caterer was some of the most flavorful wedding food I've ever had.

After having a small ceremony and reception (where we met) in Boston, my wife and I wanted to have a larger (130 guests) but simpler celebration in Philly/Delco area where most of my HUGE extended family resides. We wanted a place that was classy, clean, and visually appealing at its core so that we didn't have to spend much on extras. Lazaretto fit our desires perfectly.

EVERY OTHER LOCAL (Delaware County) VENUE that we looked at required us to work within their pre-made wedding packages, requiring us to spend on unnecessary and (often tacky) decorations that we didn't want. They were not open to the idea of holding a simple event, where they didn't use extensive decorations, for fear of hurting their reputation. (I found it to be complete BS that these venues were only willing to hold events that brought in huge cash. Though there might be less profit in opening their doors to more modest events, they could still put money into the pockets of their staff, which is something that Lazaretto understands).
