Everyone was very helpful and made sure we had a great day! They were incredibly flexible with us picking up the items afterwards, our rehearsal, and even came to my rescue when I tripped and fell and held up the rehearsal! Very accommodating and they worked well with all of our other vendors!

Jessica, Brendan, and Tim were hands down the most helpful and user friendly people involved in our whole wedding. I have had the fortune of knowing Jessica and Brendan for many years as both my wife and I were cadets at Valley Forge. Having worked many weddings for Jessica and Brendan in the past I knew without a doubt the quality of their professionalism. It was so meaningful to my wife and I to be married where we met as students year before and Jessica, Brendan, Tim, and their staff made it more than perfect. Everything we asked for was accomplished without argument, without hesitation, without question. They made it clear that it was our day and they valued our business and placed our priorities and needs first. I cannot say enough fantastic things about what a pleasure it was to work with them from this side of a wedding. They orchestrated the entire day confidence and an astute attention to detail. It is clear the amount of knowledge and practice they have in every detail of the day. Things that my wife and I had not even thought about were handled easily behind the scenes. All of our guests commented on what a fantastic place it was! If you are planning to get married on the main line you cannot do any better for the quality of the staff, food, and service as well as the incredibly beautiful chapel and reception venue. The views and photo ops around campus are unmatched. Book them and book them now!

Having our wedding ceremony and reception at Valley Forge Military Academy was the best decision we made after getting engaged. The event coordinator and ceremony coordinator were very professional and helpful. The catering is done by Sudexo catering and was great. The chapel is absolutely beautiful. Eisenhower Hall was the perfect size for our guests (less than 200). Even without an elevator, they ensured that our two guests that required assistance made it upstairs without a hitch. I could go on and on for hours on how fantastic this place is. If you're looking for a wedding venue near Philadelphia and don't want to pay the high city prices, this is the place.

Recently had my wedding at VFMC and it was absolutely brilliant. It was a blessed day, perfect weather, and it was a great location to have the photo shoot after. The cadets rolling out the runner was a wonderful and unique touch. Jessica and Brendan made the day seamless and were overly available to accommodate all of our requests prior and the day of. The church was beautiful, spacious, and classic. Parking was a two minute walk, but more than sufficient for a 500 guest wedding. Would strongly recommend the team and venue for special occasions.

MWSS 472 would like to thank Valley Forge Military Academy for making the Squadron's 51st Annual Mess Night an event to remember. The staff was exceptional and the venue could not have been more perfect for this time honored military tradition. A special thanks to Brendan Davidson for the time he devoted to our event. His attentive responsiveness to our needs, and flexibility to small last minute changes personified the professionalism that he and his staff are credited for. I would personally recommend this venue to any organization that was looking for a night to truly remember! CWO2 John W. Peskuski

Brendon cannot be more helpful and I don't think there is enough space to write all the ways he was helpful. Brendon and Jess will ensure your wedding goes off without a hitch. They plan, are helpful, and just made the entire process incredibly easy. Brendon is a stickler about the details and he made sure, like we were personal friends and it was his obligation, that our wedding and reception was 100% perfect.

BEST DAY EVER!!! We really could not have had such a great if it wasn't so easy to work with two great people, Brendan and Jess. They both made it a point to ensure our day was perfect, and it was, PERFECT. I can't say enough about theses two or the beauty of the campus itself. The food was delicious, the space was the perfect size, the pomp and circumstance was much appreciated and overall it was just a great experience. My new husband and I would recommend this venue to everyone looking for great spot to enjoy their special day.

Our wedding far exceeded any expectations we had, simply amazing!
Nothing but the best things to say about vfma. If I needed it, it happened. If it went wrong, it was fixed. The type of customer service that just doesn't seem to exist anymore, kind courteous and professional. We couldn't have asked for anything more.
