Indian Orchards

Tucked away on a long country road in Delaware County past the fig trees and variety of apples, Indian Orchards Farm is just that, an orchard. A wedding venue situated on a 40-acre wooded farm producing local honey, homemade pasteurized apple cider, vegetables, and fruit. Take a right at the grand 200-year-old restored vintage barn and through the wrought iron gate to the spacious stone terrace. It overlooks acres of trees and nature; the ideal spot for a wedding ceremony. Adjacent to the patio, the space is perfectly set up for an outdoor reception.

For those looking for a long wedding weekend, the restored historic 1794 guesthouse just steps away is equipped with a balcony and modern amenities–perfect for relaxing following your milestone event.

For party favors, imagine pots of local honey to send home with your guests. For catering, Indian Orchards allows couples to choose from their preferred list.

Loch Aerie Mansion

Situated on a plateau in Chester Valley, Loch Aerie Mansion is a restored Italianate Gothic Revival Mansion dating to 1865. Through its restoration, its historic fortitude and architectural elegance remain carefully intact. The premier Chester County wedding venue features a stone façade and gardens, parlor room, billiard and dining rooms, bridal suite and ballroom. In fact, Loch Aerie Mansion’s 5,000 square foot ballroom was preserved to reflect the original house but with modern amenities and enough room to accommodate celebrations of every size.

Imagine descending the freestanding three-story walnut grand staircase to guests waiting below, mingling within its many rooms or twirling through its magnificent ballroom. Or perhaps daydream about your outdoor event tented on its landscaped grounds.

John Serock Catering is the exclusive caterer of Loch Aerie Mansion.
