Enchanted forest. Magical enclave. Nature-lover’s delight. Grounds and formal gardens landscaped by Olmsted Associates, the firm that designed Central Park.

PARQUE is set in 2600-acre Ridley Creek State Park in Newtown Square, twenty five minutes from Philadelphia Airport and the Main Line. A majestic English-Tudor stone mansion is surrounded by ponds, fountains, stonework and open fields.

The mansion includes a spacious bridal suite, grand staircase and ballroom with oak paneling, floor-to ceiling windows, stone fireplace, and ceiling in plaster relief. The fully climate-controlled space accommodates 150 with dancing.

PARQUE is located in the Brandywine River Valley, historic site of George Washington’s battles with the British, and home to Longwood Gardens, inspiration to the Wyeth painters, mushroom capital of the world, and location of seven wineries.

Exclusive catering by boutique firm Peachtree & Ward, with thirty years planning and serving up the most fabulous and delicious parties ever. Read less

From the moment we walked up to Ridley Creek State Park I could just picture having our wedding there - surrounded by big trees, we would be the only event on site with a lovey historic ballroom and two choices for the ceremony area. We met with Kevin for our tour and he answered all of our questions (very honestly) which was great! Having the entire mansion to ourselves for the whole day, not to mention the bridal suite (and private balcony), was perfect. And, since the grounds were so expansive, my husband and his groomsmen were able to get pictures at the same time as the bridal party without us seeing each other (we did not do a first look). We received so many compliments on the grounds and got such wonderful pictures with all of the areas directly around the mansion - the pond, treeline, landscaped area and the stone foundations (Juliana Laury Photography). The only thing we changed was to use Robert Ryan Catering even though we had to pay extra as they are not a preferred vendor.

I always knew I didn't want to be part of the traditional or country club wedding group. I struggled finding a venue because nothing felt unique enough for my taste. The only way I can describe this place is like a diamond in the rough. I also referred to it as a secret garden look alike. My six-year-old and my three-year-old nephew referred to it as Batman's castle. Kevin Murphy was so extremely sincere and helpful. Our wedding is scheduled for eight 1515. I am looking forward to sharing our review then and posting pictures. So far everything has been more than I could have ever hoped for dreamed of.

If you're looking for a venue in a natural setting with a gorgeous Tudor Mansion in the Philadelphia region, you must take a look at the Mansion at Ridley Creek State Park, in Media PA. My daughter just got married there last weekend and everything was perfect. We had the ceremony outside, cocktails on the patio, dinner/dancing in the ballroom and a Photo Booth on the large staircase. We also really enjoyed the very large bridal dressing room for getting ready.

Kevin Murphy, their Event Coordinator, was delightful to work with, answering all of our questions in a responsive manner, allowing us to tour the facility/grounds when we were in town. Way to go Kevin-thank you for all of your assistance!

Also, we used Williamson Caterers, on their vendor list (they also get a 5.0 rating from me) and Theresa Floral Design.

My husband and I choose Ridley after looking at numerous venues in the area. We wanted a fall wedding that reminded us of Big Sur, California - which is where we fell in love and our most favorite place to vacation. The minute we pulled up to the mansion we said "THIS IS THE PLACE". Ridley was perfect. The outdoor veranda is gorgeous and the grounds are nothing short of a fairytale like setting. Most people get married near the steps but we choose to get married near the water fountain area that is lined with trees on both sides. Ridley is a truly magical place. It is absolutely breathtaking. I would highly recommend Ridley to anyone who wants an outdoor ceremony and loves the outdoors. The dining area is not huge but very intimate which is what we liked. Very historical with a gorgeous stone terrace & French doors surrounding it. We had over 150 people at our wedding and we were comfortable and had a nice size dance floor. The bridal suite is GIGANTIC and beautiful. Management is also very easy to work with and goes above and beyond to help you plan your day.

Our wedding at the mansion was beautiful. The mansion was the first venue we saw and we knew right away we wanted to get married here. We worked with Kevin, the park manager, who was very helpful and responsive through phone calls. He met with my family, husband, my in-laws and I on several occasions to do walk throughs and he gave us great advice throughout the planning process. The day of the wedding was beautiful. Luckily it was a beautiful sunny day because there is not a "real" rain back up location at the mansion. If it did rain we would have had to moved inside to the dining area and got married with everyone at their dining tables. Wasn't my ideal choice, but luckily it was an amazing day. Our pictures came out amazing and our guests are still talking about how beautiful and perfect the venue was. Kevin informed us that they are sprucing up the garden section for upcoming fall weddings which will be beautiful. There is a smaller pond in that area which was drained for our wedding, but really will look great once it's up and running and the flowers in that area are pruned. I wish I could re-live my wedding day over; it was great and this venue was amazing.

My husband and I got married at Ridley Creek State Park at the beginning of June. We originally toured the venue in February 2012, and even in the winter we could tell how beautiful the venue was! Ever since booking the venue, we have been very impressed with the quality of service. You will work with Kevin, the park ranger, and you can tell he is very passionate about the mansion and the grounds. Every time we went by for a walk through or even just to hang out in the park, we noticed new upgrades to the area! Right before our ceremony they replanted the grass in the ceremony area. They also added new lighting in the ballroom and built a wall along the cocktail hour terrace. We loved all of the upgrades and thought the area looked amazing for our wedding day. Kevin was always very responsive and always answered our questions. The venue is very hands off and lets you bring in all of your own vendors, so you are able to personalize your wedding to be exactly how you want it to be. Renting the mansion is expensive considering that it only pays for use of the mansion for 12 hours, but it was definitely worth it! My guests were blown away by how beautiful the mansion and grounds were, and my bridesmaids and hair/makeup vendors were dying over the massive bridal suite that we were able to use to get ready! Every picture of our wedding day was perfect because of how beautiful the venue was. My photographer said it's one of her favorite places to shoot weddings! I highly recommend this space to anyone looking for a beautiful, romantic place in the woods to get married!
