First the people. Tegan was the go-to person leading up to the day. She answered my many emails quickly - never losing patience with ever growing list of questions. She knows her stuff and had wonderful suggestions of the dos and don'ts for the wedding. Kate was in charge of The Day. Kate, wow, you are so helpful and kind. She made sure we never wanted for anything - drinks, food, comforting words. She was prepared for some spur of the moment changes for the day and smoothed everything out. The two of them took all my decorations and set them up PERFECTLY. Never could I have imagined such a perfect set up. These two women are a great team!
The Inn was gorgeous to have the wedding. It gets a little hot inside but we were dancing up a storm so it would've been hot regardless. The bartender didn't miss a beat when it came to 80 thirsty guests. The waitstaff were so pleasant to us and our guests. They were cracking jokes with me and my husband throughout the day. The weather was beautiful. We could not have asked for a more perfect venue. The only thing I recommend to future brides at this venue is to have a shuttle service set up - many of our guests (us too) were planning on using Uber and we realized there was no cell phone reception! It worked out in the end with people sharing rides, but it would've made life a lot easier if I'd gotten a shuttle set up. I think Tegan even recommended this to us :).

Thanks everyone at the Valley Green Inn - you guys are fabulous!

AMAZING! We literally couldn't have been happier with a venue! The Inn was perfect for our needs. It is a bit rustic, and centered in a public park, so it is not for those who want something super fancy. However, it allows you and your guests to be close to nature while having a beautiful indoor area to celebrate. Tegan and Sara were amazing, and they met all of our needs, even exceeding our expectations. We had a pretty low key ordeal, but they helped guide us through some of the moments that we weren't sure how to navigate (cake cutting, ceremony timeline, etc). I would highly recommend renting out the entire inn because it allows your guests to wander and keeps the public from being in your space.

Tegan and Emily both were so easy to work with and everything couldn't have gone more smoothly. It was so nice to not have to worry about anything the day of. All of our guests had so much fun and have been talking about how it was one of the best weddings they have been to in years. The food was amazing and we really can't say enough about the setting. It was everything we were wanted and more! Great value for your money and Tegan and Emily made it easy to plan a wedding in 3 months. Simple, lovely, elegant, beautiful for those who want an outdoor setting. I really can't say enough about Valley Green!!

Beautiful from start to finish. It definitely exceeded all my expectations. The banquet manager and staff were professional, helpful and courteous. The ceremony held outside the Inn was memorable because of the beautiful and peaceful scenery that is part of Valley Green's charm. The reception was perfect from the food, to the decorations, to the service. I would highly recommend the Inn at Valley Green to anyone.

Since our wedding, now two months ago, both my husband and I have been recommending Valley Green to everybody who is getting engaged, and even to those who aren't yet. The place is phenomenal, and the service amazing. We were/are both grad students paying for our own wedding so our budget was limited. We had been looking everywhere and we had a list of places that would consider us as clients because we were having a small wedding. We only saw one place before Valley Green but once we went there we didn't have to think about it twice, gorgeous place, amazing food and good for our budget! I was so impatient I wanted to tell them I wanted to confirm I wanted their service on the spot. I waited until the evening.
Tegan helped us with the budget and with everything I asked. They worked with our budget so we could have a nice wedding for less money (for instance, ours was a Friday day wedding, which our friends appreciated very much!). The food was amazing. We went for the trial a few months before and I am very glad we did because I didn't get to eat very much on my wedding day (since I was talking to people all the time). My guests told me they loved it and one of them is a professional cook! Moreover, the rest of staff at Valley Green was always very nice, from the first to the last day. I can certainly say I enjoyed my wedding from all the planning to the very last day. I am still smiling as I am remembering it to write this review.

My husband and I could not have asked for a venue more beautiful than Valley Green Inn! The staff especially our coordinators, Emily and Tegan were wonderful and wanted nothing more than to help make our wedding day the very best. The food and service (including the open bar of course) were fabulous. We were so excited that our cake (from Chestnut Hill "Bredenbecks" famous bakery) and center pieces were both included in our venue price. Overall wedding planning was a non-stressful endeavor thanks to the staff at Valley Green Inn, we cannot thank them enough and would highly recommend this venue!!

The Valley Green Inn is a great place for a small, intimate wedding. My husband and I spend a lot of time in Fairmount Park, near the VG Inn. In fact, we got engaged very close to the Inn and the Inn was a stop on my 'trail of roses'. I can't recommend the Inn enough. It is very affordable and sweet. I personally don't think it would fit a lot of people (150 seems like it would be a stretch). We had about 80 people and I feel like that size fits very well in the space available. I found them to be very flexible and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. We chose a brunch wedding and I think it was just perfect. I would say the Inn is older and the space provides a more rustic/outdoor feel. If you are looking for an extremely fancy, black tie affair, I'm not sure this is the place. If you want something laid back, intimate, and special I would say choose the Valley Green Inn. Also, we loved that our ceremony was outside. You have to be prepared for people to stop and watch, however, we loved it. It was so nice to see people smile and wish us well and seem generally happy to be around. The vibe was great. You obviously could have the ceremony inside if you wanted to be 'alone' but I think that takes away from the 'feel' of the VG Inn. Just keep in mind it is a public park and this affects parking and obviously people who are not invited to your wedding being close by. Again, we loved this aspect but you have to be okay with this.

Thank you thank you thank you to Tegan and Emily and the entire staff at Valley Green Inn. From the moment we made the incredible decision to have our wedding with you, we had nothing but fantastic experiences.

Tegan is a wonderful communicator, and is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. Emily stepped in beautifully that weekend, and worked incredibly hard to make our Sunday brunch wedding a phenomenal success. She was so professional and had a great attitude.

Food was fantastic, venue was gorgeous, and all the details were perfect. The entire wedding was so reasonably priced, which took so much stress out of the planning.

Not one thing about the wedding we would change! Many thanks to Tegan and Emily for giving us a wedding we would choose over and over again. We will recommend Valley Green Inn to everyone we know :)

My husband and I wanted a rustic, woodsy setting for our spring wedding, and Valley Green Inn delivered everything we wanted and more. Tegan was invaluable to planning, was very responsive to all of the questions I had, and all around wonderful to work with. Emily, who coordinates the day of portion, was absolutely fantastic - it was like having my very own personal wedding planner on site - I didn't have to worry about a thing and everything was beautiful! Oh, and she also created the centerpieces, which were perfect! The food was also excellent as was the service. We couldn't have asked for a better day and everyone at Valley Green went above and beyond to make sure they fulfilled our vision. It was a tremendous bargain for everything that was included in the price and we received so many comments about how unique and beautiful everything was. It was absolutely a perfect day!

Value Green and Tegan in particular were phenomenal. Tegan quickly responded to all my questions -- which were a lot -- and helped me plan a wedding in Philadelphia all the way from Australia. She was always friendly, always helpful and always communicative and certainly reduced my planning anxiety leaps and bounds. I should add that she took over my coordination from someone who left the establishment and while I was a little apprehensive at first about not having the original planner with whom I started discussing things, Tegan was a dream come true. I would recommend her and Valley Green to anyone. I am still getting told, three months later, that it was the perfect wedding, the best wedding some people had ever been to, low-key and very much matched to my and my husband's personalities.

I cannot say enough when it comes to the beauty of Valley Green Inn and the professionalism from its' staff. My husband and I met in the Wissahickon Park, and we were thrilled to be married there as well. We decided to book the entire Inn for the evening so our guests would have room to spread out and relax during the cocktail hour and reception.

What can I say? The food (appetizers, salad, main courses) was unbelievably delicious. The staff was kind, considerate and very attentive the entire night. The bar was stocked, and every single guest left happy, raving about how wonderful everything was. I loved working with Tegan and Emily: They were very easy to get in touch with, they responded to our phone calls and emails almost immediately, and they're simply WONDERFUL individuals. They are THEE BEST if you ask me!

I know that friends in the past have remarked how hard it is to plan a wedding:Quite honestly, nothing was hard about planning ours at The Valley Green Inn. Everything was simple, and everything was perfect. Our wedding was one of the best days of my life, and it's all thanks to Tegan, Emily, and the entire staff of the Valley Green Inn. THANK YOU!

We had a simple lunch at the Inn after a wedding ceremony elsewhere. The food was very good indeed, served quickly while it was hot. the servers were lovely people and very efficient. The only drawback was that the large addition to the Inn itself was inadequately heated and some of us wore our coats.
There is a parking problem potentially at the Inn but the staff took care of it very well and it bothered none of us. The venue is spectacular in a valley by the Wissahickon River. We saw wedding parties come by limo to get photographed by the water.

I had my wedding at the Valley Green Inn this past fall and it was wonderful. The event staff were so helpful and pleasant throughout the entire process. They helped to keep me organized and focused on the details. They followed all of my instructions and set everything up beautifully. The Inn is one of the most beautiful places I could have imagined for my wedding day and they are very reasonably priced. I highly recommend it for any bride looking for a quaint, outdoor event.

Tegan and Emily are amazing! They were so responsive throughout the planning period and were always willing to accommodate any special needs/requests. The venue itself is gorgeous as well, and we couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding. Absolutely perfect!

We recently were married here and could not have asked for a better venue. Everything was perfect. We love the Valley Green Inn and knew it would be our wedding spot from the first time we visited. I was a little hesitant about the size of the patio area for the number of guests (130), but Kate assured us that everything would work out. Kate was a pleasure to work with and met with my mom and me several times before the wedding to go over all the details. Kate actually stepped down from her position during our wedding planning and had 2 new coordinators step in- Tegan and Emily. We were a little nervous about the transition since we had previously met with Kate, but everything ran so smoothly and perfectly. I highly recommend Valley Green Inn for an intimate and unique wedding experience. We are still receiving compliments from our guests. Thank you!

I just had my wedding reception in the side room of the Valley Green Inn and cannot recommend it highly enough. The lady in charge of coordinating events for the restaurant, Kate, is lovely, punctual with responses, knowledgeable, and good at her job. The reception itself looked beautiful, gorgeous floral centerpieces, attentive servers who were quick with hors d'oeuvres, and the wedding cake (they outsource the baking to Bredenbeck's Bakery in Germantown) was awesome. The buffet style brunch was tasty (so many guests agreed) which was such a bonus. Come on people, let's start throwing more receptions at restaurants instead of hotels, if only for the food. The food was great. People pretended they were embarrassed to go back for seconds, but go back they did.

If you want a pretty affordable reception venue where most all of the work is handled for you (food, linens, plates, flowers, bar) you should really go see this place. The location is lush and wonderful, and I'm happy to say I would rent this place again.

LOVE.

Perfect...even though we had less than perfect circumstances!
Our wedding was a week and half after Hurricane Irene. Yes, you can imagine the nerves. The nerves got worse when Kate (the wedding coordinator at the valley green inn) called me the DAY BEFORE our wedding to tell me there was currently another flood at the valley green inn property. Let me tell you...I caught some footage of the area online and we could have river rafted down the rive to say our vows - the river was actually touching the Valley Green Inn and I think water actually came in as well. Changing the venue was out of the question because we planned this "out of town" wedding from 3000 miles away. Kate worked her butt off to make sure I was calm with her "I'm taking care of everything" and "I will make sure we make this wedding happen for you" responses.
Everything I meticulously planned for our wedding day pretty much got left in Kate's hands. The morning of the wedding came with more surprises as the plumbing was not working.
Did I turn into a Bridezilla? Nope. Kate and the Valley green worked all night getting the dump trucks to ship out as much of the rocks and mud from the ceremony site so we could have a flat safe surface to have our ceremony. The staff worked overtime to clean up the venue to make it presentable and laid down astro turf out by the river because the grass got all washed away. They brought in brand new outhouses for the guests. We could not have the reception in the patio as planned, but the staff transformed the whole Valley green Inn restaurant into our reception venue with the DJ on the patio. Most of all, we had a wedding.

Kate and the Valley Green staff proved to be a venue of excellence. They made the worse circumstances turn into a day we will always remember. Who else can say they had a flood and port-o-potties at their wedding and still managed to have everyone say they had the best time!!!

I loved my wedding at the Valley Green Inn. Kate Herron was unbelievably quick to respond to many questions and emails. Easy to set up, easy and fun tasting dinner, and so smooth on the wedding day in May 2011. The 5:30pm ceremony outside on the lawn was threatened to move inside due to afternoon rain but they were quite flexible and set it up both ways.. with an outdoor ceremony at the end. I'd recommend this venue for smaller weddings - mine was about 90 people.

We had our wedding at Valley Green this past October 2010. It was just perfect! The setting makes the whole venue so special and quaint. We had a ceremony outside by the water and our reception on the outside covered patio. We had 118 guests which was tight for the size of the reception area, but the staff managed to seat everyone comfortably for dinner and move some tables after to make the dance floor larger. It was just right! Kate Harron, the planning facilitator, at the Inn was wonderful! She was easy to get in touch with at any time and helped everything run smoothly from start to finish. The staff was so great! The day before the wedding we dropped off all of our decorations with little notes for placement. I was taken back at how beautifully they arranged everything the day of the wedding. It was beautiful! And at the end of the night the staff even packed everything right back up for us to take home.

The food was delicious and the wedding cake provided was awesome!

So happy we chose the Valley Green Inn. If you want an intimate setting with a beautiful natural backdrop and wonderful help... this is the place for you!

We got married at the Valley Green Inn on May 30, 2010 and it was perfect. Kate Herron was absolutely amazing to work with. I bombarded her for months with inane and countless questions. She was always very quick to respond and so patient and kind in her answers. Our guests, most of whom are not from the area, had nothing but wonderful things to say about the location, the food and the service. The tasting was great, as was the food. Kate and the staff were so accomodating and really executed all the details I had planned flawlessly. The staff were so friendly and a pleasure to have around. When we booked, we knew it would become a favorite place of ours and it has! Every single time we stopped in for a drink or a meal, everyone was so pleasant and friendly. It truly is a great place for a wedding.

My wedding at the Valley Green Inn on November 7, 2009, was nothing short of a dream! The Inn's event coordinator, Kate Harron, is amazing! She was so thorough and detail oriented that nothing was left to chance. Kate and her staff at the Inn provided courteous and attentive service along with the highest level of professionalism. All of the guests raved about the food and had such a memorable time. I would recommend the Valley Green Inn to any Bride that wants an enchanting evening in one of Philadelphia's most historic locations. It is truly a unique location with an extraordinary staff.

The Valley Green Inn is a beautiful place, and one of my favorite spots in Philadelphia. Working with Kate Harron to coordinate my wedding was simple, straightfoward, and a pleasure. She is very responsive and understands the pressures of wedding planning. They provided everything as they said that they would, nothing was left to chance. The only two minuses, which I was made fully aware of from the start - so it was not a surprise - was that there is no room to get ready in (I threw my dress on in the ladies' room), and parking is public. I was blessed with the first perfect day of the year, so everyone and anyone was at the park. Some of my guests had to park in a further lot, but no one complained. Again, these were things I knew about going into it.

This venue is so top notch that there is no room to write all of the amazing things that I have to say about it. First and formost Kate Harron is AMAZING!!!!, my daughters wedding had to get planned in 3 months since she was marrying an army officer being sent to Germany and the couple were in Oklahoma the entire time with the groom doing training. I am the Mother of the Bride and have lived near the Inn for many years. When I started to try to plan the wedding I thought of the VGI first but decided I should still check out other venues including the Ritz, Moshalu and a host of other venues (I have OCD), well I should have never wasted the gas, VGI was perfection and when the Bride made a trip home to deal with some details, she too fell in love. On wedding day we walked into a reception that was so flawlessly executed that NO ONE had anything but rave reviews. I am a SUPER picky person but Kate made every single element of the decor items I provided look so much better than I could have imagined. it was flawless, the food was fabulous, the wait staff helpful and respectful, they were flexible and so over the top I just wish everyone would be able to have their reception there, and by the way they were also very reasonable and the house flowers were so much better than any florist and the cake is from Bredenbecks!, Kate you have a gift that suits you to a "T" and I for one hope that everyone you come in contact with realizes how amazing you truly are!!!

The Valley Green in was the perfect venue for us to have a medium-sized casual fall wedding.

The team at the venue are great to work with and are ready and able to help in any way they can. VGI is perfect for the bride that wants the planning process to be seamless and smooth - they really take care of everything! For me, I wanted to be a bit MORE involved in the process, and they were amenable, but had I not wanted to be involved at all, I would've walked into the perfect wedding.

Tegan and Emily are the dream team - completely aligned and on the same page for everything. They will also respond to your emails in, like, .5 seconds - perfect for the frazzled bride!

Not to mentioned how amazing the actual venue is - it doesn't get much more idyllic than the heart of Fairmount Park. It feels like a fairy tale.

I highly recommend VGI.

Tegan was extremely helpful with anything that we needed. She was very responsive to any and all questions that we had. They made the Inn look so beautiful the day of our wedding. The tent was a really nice addition and the decorations they provided looked very rustic. They were very helpful during the transitioning from our ceremony to the cocktail hour, and then to the reception. They even let the reception go on a little bit later than we had paid for. The food was amazing! The cake made from local bakers over at Bredenbeck's was very good, and was included in the price for the venue. The only hiccup we had was with the parking situation. Usually you can get a parking attendant to turn people away who aren't coming to the wedding. There was some confusion with Valley Green getting us a parking attendant the day of the wedding when we had paid for one. No one had trouble finding parking though. We had such an amazing wedding and having the Valley Green Inn as a vendor made planning our wedding so much easier! We wish we could get married here again!!

Loved Valley Green Inn. It's a beautiful and unique location. Their food is incredible! We had our rehearsal dinner and wedding there, and I heard nothing but compliments on the food. They were very accommodating to our specific needs. They happily created a private room and provided tea for our Chinese tea ceremony.

There was a switch in personnel in between the planning and the actual wedding. It led to understandable bumps and a little confusion, but Tegan smoothed everything out and made our wedding day easy and worry-free.

We had the most perfect, picturesque ceremony and wedding at the Valley Green Inn. The day of was perfect...beyond perfect. Tegan from the venue coordinated all the moving pieces, the food was outstanding (really, really outstanding), and the whole team was friendly and did everything they could to make our day special. Planning was very easy--Tegan responds to emails the same day, they include the cake and table flowers in the prices, and they have a well-organized structure for the weddings. The structure takes away some of the flexibility you might find elsewhere, but it also makes life easier for you. However, they were flexible in a few important areas for us, and the day of they were very accommodating. I am SO HAPPY I found the Valley Green Inn and would recommend it to everyone. Our wedding looked like a fairy tale. It was so warm and intimate, and we had a fairly large group of 120. We can't wait to come back for future celebrations.

Planning was very easy--Tegan responds to emails the same day, they include the cake and table flowers in the prices, and they have a well-organized structure for the weddings. The structure takes away some of the flexibility you might find elsewhere, but it also makes life easier for you. However, they were flexible in a few important areas for us, and the day of they were very accommodating. I am SO HAPPY I found the Valley Green Inn and would recommend it to everyone. Our wedding looked like a fairy tale. It was so warm and intimate, and we had a fairly large group of 120. We can't wait to come back for future celebrations. Read less

Tegan and Emily were amazing to work with. Tegan was really responsive with emails and put up with my millions of last minute questions. For the price, this place is a great bargain, it was everything that we wanted our wedding to be - unique, full of character, scenic, great food, great venue. We couldn't have picked a better place!

A great, helpful, knowledgeable venue where we had a beautiful, intimate, and perfect wedding. The food was excellent, everyone I worked with was very nice and professional. They are a bit limited on what they can serve and some small details that I thought would be standard were not (they are limited in how much glassware they have, for example, and don't have a cappuccino maker). But they took care of the whole luncheon and wedding as a "package" and all the details were handled very well. In particular Tegan was great to work with.

We went back and forth between VGI and Downtown Club. We really wanted an outdoor ceremony and loved VGI's setting and history, so we went with that. Although the venue is beautiful, we were quite disappointed with the tasting. We're a bit of food snobs and only cook with high-quality ingredients. I was disappointed to learn that none of the ingredients they use are organic, so I was hesitant to order several things. All of the hors d'voeurs we selected tasted stale or like they'd been sitting around for a while. The vegetarian risotto cakes tasted like stale, packaged rice cakes, so we decided against that dish right away. We tried the duck (which was a surprising highlight as it was cooked perfectly) and the prime rib. What we got was a ribeye steak that was brown and overcooked and tasted as unappetizing as it looked. At first we were told that they use a ribeye for their prime rib since it's "the same thing." When I finally spoke with a manager about it, he assured me that they do, in fact, roast a whole prime rib for the wedding. We took our chances and went with it and it was, in fact, very good, as was our duck. For the actual wedding, all of the food was great and things went smoothly. Tegan, the coordinator, was immensely patient with me and very helpful and accommodating in answering questions and working with me from across the country. The setting and weather were perfect and all of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was. I'm so glad we went with VGI, even with non-organic food. :-)

The location and setting are amazing for their relatively inexpensive package deal (there are several options). We had the wedding right in front, near the stream, and it was wonderful. We were able to have a mostly vegetarian meal, with a vegan option, without it being a huge deal. The food was pretty good, but not in my top ten or anything. The group tasting event was a little crazy, but we're glad it didn't let it change our minds or anything like that. The bathrooms need a little cosmetic work, but are fine, not too bad. We had a really fun, casual-yet-elegant wedding, and everything went well. Plus, the contact person Kate Harron is so great, a joy to work with.

- The children's menus were really overpriced, we felt. It was only a small number in the grander scheme of things, but it was disappointing.
- We ran out of desserts, which really surprised me until I heard that the kids had eaten most of them. I'm wondering if you would consider having dessert platters at each table? That would have avoided the vacuuming of the desserts by the kids.
- The flowers were beautiful on each table, and I appreciated them.
- I know we could have brought our own sound system, but you might want to upgrade yours a bit. It was quite tinny in sound.
- Otherwise we had a great time! I was so grateful that you had saved parking spots for us. Thank you!

I had an amazing time at my wedding and this is a lovely venue to host it! The centerpieces were exactly what we wanted, our guests raved about the food, and the beer selection was top notch. Tegan was always responsive and professional via email.

I had a few disappointments but it didn't stop me from enjoying the day as a whole. The biggest problem was the fact that the original wedding planner, Kate, left VGI about 3 months before my wedding. So I had spoken and signed a contract with her, and then had to work with 2 separate people when it came to execution of our agreement. In my contract, there was a statement that a tent would be provided if we wanted to use the extra part of the patio. A charge for a tent never appeared on any of our multiple invoices, nor was it ever discussed or mentioned beyond that it would be provided (much like the tables and chairs). But 3 months before the wedding, suddenly we got hit with a $2000 surprise charge for tent rental. What?! This was totally unprofessional in my view, and completely unacceptable when it wasn't mentioned in the contract or on any of the invoices up until that point, but we were stuck; we had no other options so we just ate the cost.

The other disappointments were small and didn't upset me too much, but are worth mentioning. Three of our tables lacked centerpieces. We asked to be served first so that we could start greeting tables, but we weren't served until 3 tables had gotten their meals and we had to chase down a waiter to be fed. I asked for a different dessert for myself, both Tegan and Kate confirmed it via email, and it was noted on the invoice as a special notation, but I never received it! The waitstaff noisily pulled the curtains shut in the middle of the toasts, knocking over a glass vase of water right behind our table in the process. Votives I'd hand-painted and asked be placed on the guest tables were scattered around the Inn. Even so, I had a great time and highly recommend VGI.
