This place is just amazing. Such a beautiful landscape for an outdoor ceremony (with multiple locations to choose from!) and a beautiful reception room with huge windows, that leads out on to the patio. Kevin was great and always available to answer questions. The bridal suite was a great place to get ready in, so beautiful and it has it's own private courtyard where you can do some pictures before hand with your bridesmaids. All of my guests raved about the location and couldn't believe a place this beautiful was so close without them knowing about it. I highly recommend this place.

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!

Beautiful Venue! Kevin Murphy the event coordinater was a great help and even ended up taking down all the chairs from my reception site by himself!

It really becomes a DIY wedding there since they only provide indoor tables and chairs but it was a wonderful place and we had a beautiful wedding!

thanks Kevin!

My husband and I wanted a destination wedding but quickly realized it was going to be a challenge to have all of our family and friends there with us. When we discovered Ridley Creek Mansion we knew this would be our local destination. Ridley Creek is beautiful, very scenic and picturesque. The Mansion has a lot of history and having our own bridal sweet for day was an extra perk. It was very spacious and beautiful, a great place to get ready and capture some extraordinary pictures. The grounds are very well kept and clean, all of our guests enjoyed the views and took several pictures of their own. Our entire event was magical and everything we imagined it would be. We highly recommend Ridley Creek for a special occasion; it is a destination all in its own!

We have visited RCSP frequently over the years, and it's always been a special place for us, so we chose it as the location for our wedding and reception this past September. The Hunting Hill Mansion isn't large – it's best for 150 or fewer guests – but it's magnificently rustic, and needs no decorations or enhancements. The grounds surrounding the mansion are modest, but are spacious and have lovely aspects, including a gorgeous pond and stone archways. There's plenty of space for guests to congregate and children to play. And brides…there is a magnificent bridal salon for you and your attendants to get ready, or to retreat when you need a break from it all! For an indoor/outdoor wedding and/or reception, RCSP is comparatively inexpensive and provides a beautiful setting. The only thing to note is that you must be out of the space by 10PM. For us, that wasn’t a problem. For our out-of-town guests (as well as those who wanted to continue the party into the night), we chose the Concordville Inn and provided a shuttle (see our separate review).

We looked at several places before almost settling. When the first place I chose wasn't my husband's favorite, I agreed to look at 1 more. We both knew it was the one the second we walked in. The most common comment we got about the wedding was "WHERE did you find this place?" The venue is absolutely stunning! We wanted a place that would let us bring in our own everything. Our own decor, caterer, centerpieces, etc. This was the place. It was a blank slate, but a beautiful canvas. So much potential for those with or even without imagination. From the fireplace, to the fountain yard, to the outdoor patio, everything is just stunning. My favorite comment was "the most romantic wedding ever" - simply from the venue. The fact that it is in a public park also made things pretty easy. I stopped by a few times during the planning just to glance around and dream about the day. It is so secluded, very far from the street, and is a BEAUTIFUL backdrop for photos. We plan to have picnics in the park often to reminisce about our perfect wedding.

The mansion at Ridley Creek State Park is such a beautiful place for a wedding, our friends and family were blown away by how gorgeous it is! The park is very hands-off, which means you have to coordinate everything yourself, but that's what my husband and I wanted and it worked out perfectly. They will provide a list of vendors that have worked there before, but you're not limited to the ones on the list. The office staff and rangers were wonderful and completely unobtrusive. The thing I like most is that my husband and I can go hang out at the park pretty much whenever we want, and relive memories of our wonderful day!

Ridley Mansion is an amazing combination of old school elegance and wonderful catering. It was easier to plan our ceremony and wedding than we expected. We were glad that we choose this location and Christinas Catering to handle all our needs. Kevin at Ridley was very efficient and friendly. Everything was PERFECT. Thank You! CJ
