Villanova, Pennsylvania

Appleford, a historic country estate tucked away at the end of a tree-lined drive, is best known as the premier Main Line venue for weddings and wedding receptions.

From the woods and meadows, acclaimed Philadelphia landscape architect Thomas Sears created a series of lush formal gardens, brick walkways, and rhododendron tracts set off by a stream, pond, and waterfall.  Gardens can be enjoyed from every window of the house; each vista holds an air of enchantment and distinguished charm.

While weddings are the major part of our business, Appleford has also hosted numerous corporate dinners, receptions and holiday parties, wine tastings and silent auctions, retirement parties, anniversary celebrations, bridal showers and memorial services.

I recently had my wedding at Appleford. Absolutely stunning rain or shine! The staff is very responsive and professional and the estate is spectacular. All of our guests were smitten!

We live in NYC, and when we were looking for a location to host our engagement party, we wanted a change of scenery and location. Appleford was just what we were looking for. The beautiful 300-year old stone house was charming and unique, and the permanent tent provided a great space to host our event while overlooking the beautiful gardens and the pond. Laurie, the Director at Appleford, was such a pleasure to work with and made the planning process for the event so much more pleasant and fun. Our guests still talk about how unique and beautiful Appleford was. We feel lucky to have been able to host our event at such a historic venue and would highly recommend Appleford for your special event!


Appleford was the picture perfect setting for our wedding, and the team at Appleford was delightful to work with. Everything was very straightforward, the team a Appleford was very professional and accommodating, and the venue was just spectacular! We were blessed with a beautiful day for our wedding, but regardless Appleford was the perfect place for our wedding. It was truly a dream come true to get married in such a beautiful venue!
