With just under 7 days to go until the big day, my fiancé and I are extremely excited for our 10/16/2022 wedding at the John James Audubon Center. We absolutely fell in love with the grounds during our initial tour of the venue (just down the road from our favorite stores and restaurants in the King of Prussia area)! My fiancé and I wanted a blend of nature and rustic grounds, and this checked the boxes for every aspect of our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We found the Pavilion alongside the main trail was perfect for our reception, with a beautiful fireplace behind the sweetheart table, lit outdoor space with a firepit, plenty of space for dancing and sleek vertically-opening doors that allow an entire wall of the space to open to the outside. We?ve worked with Desiree for the initial tour, Shannon and Bonnie for the initial booking/logistics & wonderful group tasting, and Kimberly for our specific event details. The staff at JJAC are all very kind, welcomed our questions along the way (even the dumb ones!), and displayed excellent response times.
We are so excited to have our wedding at JJAC. Our tasting was out of the world and it was so fun to basically experience what a wedding is actually like there. Unlike other venues, they threw a mini wedding for all the upcoming brides and grooms. It was a great way to meet other couples and see how the JAM staff works.
My husband and I could not have been more thrilled to have chosen the John James Audubon Center for our venue. The team is fantastic to work with, the scenery is beautiful, and JAM catering has the tastiest, freshest food! We were looking for a place where our entire event could be outdoors, and the Audubon Center did NOT disappoint. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic, rustic venue to hold the perfect wedding!
We are 6 months out and can't wait to enjoy our special day! The process of booking the venue was so simple and seamless! We're definitely foodies so when we toured and were told everything was made on site by JAM catering, we knew it was the place for us!
We used partyspace while looking for the perfect venue. That's how we found the John James Audubon Center and our caterer Jeffery Miller Catering! Using partyspace was easy and it was so helpful to have an idea of what dates our venue had available.
We're getting married at Audubon in November. The planning process with Audubon has been smooth and efficient! Audubon's grounds are stunning regardless of the season. The climate controlled barn and pavilion make the venue very comfortable. Counting down the dates until it's our turn!
My fiance and I are getting married in July at the John James Audubon Center, and we are using Jeffrey Miller Catering for our wedding. JAM has been incredibly professional and helpful in the planning process. We booked them about a year and a half in advance (as I like to plan ahead), and they answered all of my questions immediately and helped with everything as if our wedding was going to be that month. It was so refreshing to find a vendor that viewed my wedding as a priority, no matter how far away it was. A few months ago, we had our food tasting, and it was awesome! As a vegetarian, it's pretty rare that there's a lot of options for me at weddings, but JAM's vegetarian options did not disappoint! I highly recommend working with JAM, and I cannot wait for my big day in July :)

We are anxiously preparing for our wedding this July at the Audubon Center. Last weekend was our menu tasting with Jeffrey Miller Catering and let me tell you - it was absolutely fabulous! We were able to take some of our family members to share in the experience. Everything was impeccable from the creative and delicious hors d'oeuvres to the signature cocktails to the amazing and fresh entrees and topped off with indulgent desserts and cake! We were so full and so impressed and we can't wait for our guests to enjoy what JAM catering can offer on our wedding day. For any foodies out there looking for great options to have at their wedding, look no further. You will not be disappointed.
We are in the process of planning our wedding at the Audubon Center and it has been a wonderful experience! Shannon and the JAM team are so helpful and respond very quickly. The care and knowledge they have of the space, the food, the events and their customers was one of the major reasons we chose The John James Audubon Center as our venue. Highly recommended!!
My fiancé and I have been absolutely blown away by our wonderful experience so far at the John James Audubon Center. From the moment we came in for our site tour, we have felt the authentic joy from everyone that we have encountered. We fell in love quickly with the beautiful natural feel of the grounds, but stayed in love when we were handed a bottle of champagne upon singing our contract! We are really looking forward to the next stage in the process- selecting our menu! Jeffery A Miller definitely makes this a difficult choice, with such a wide range of menu items to select from. We could not be more thrilled with our decision to choose JAM
I am planning a wedding at John James Audubon Center in Summer 2017, and the experience so far has been nothing short of amazing! The venue is very rustic and unique, and we love that there are multiple areas on the property that we can use for our big day. Shannon and the staff are absolutely a joy to work with and are extremely thorough. JAM Catering has fresh farm-to-table food, our tasting was outstanding! We couldn't have picked a better venue for our wedding.
One of the factors that attracted my husband and me to Audubon was the confidence that we would not be sacrificing anything in terms of views or arrangements depending on the weather. Rain or shine, the property abounds with idyllic settings. We ultimately elected to have our ceremony in the barn because we loved the rustic setting, and our reception in the pavilion because it offered plenty of room for everyone to dance! We worked directly with Shannon and Kate, who made sure that everything was executed expertly on our wedding day. Looking back on the planning process, I recognize now that I underestimated the value that comes from working with people who know a venue so intimately, and who have gained such a wealth of knowledge from organizing at least one ? if not two ? weddings at the site each weekend during the height of the season. I spent countless hours thinking through variations for different aspects of the day. In hindsight, I wish that I had asked Shannon for her recommendation first, and saved myself some time! Shannon knew exactly how our varied requests could or would not work within the space, and was able to offer fitting suggestions for alternate arrangements, as needed. While Shannon and Kate were helpful and responsive during the planning process, their knowledge and professionalism really shone through on our wedding day. In particular, Shannon?s familiarity with the space meant that any day-of variations and last-minute requests from us, our guests, and/or our vendors did not ruffle her at all. She was composed throughout the wedding weekend, and calmly guided my husband and me through the day?s schedule. Despite the numerous hours spent planning and thinking through of the details that I thought that I would need to remember, I never needed to remember these things on the day of the wedding because Shannon was right there, keeping everyone organized and right on schedule. Shannon and Kate made it so that, on our wedding day, my husband and I only thought about relaxing and celebrating with each other and our guests.
Dear Shannon and other members of the Jeffrey Miller Catering team, There are no words to express our gratitude for the level of expertise and service you provided us and our guests with at our wedding on August 2nd. We had the most perfect day, filled with love, because you gave us everything we dreamed of. If we can do anything, share pictures or wedding decor, please let us know. We are so grateful for all your hard work. Thanks again, Molly and Bill Easton
Hi Shannon! We are sorry it took us so long to send you this email we are finally settling into married life, which suprisingly exactly the same! We wanted to thank you so much for everything that you did for us on our wedding day, everything was flawless! Looking back a month later, literally everything was perfect, from the way everything was set up to where everyone had to be and when. We really couldn't have asked for more. the best part was how easy it was, only a few meetings and all of our questions were answered, it was almost scary how easy it was, it made us think that it was too easy, that we were missing something, but we werent, you were just on top of it all! We have gotten so many compliments on our special day and we really could not have done it without you and your team! We will recommend you, John Audubon Center, and JAM over and over again until we are both blue in the face! THANK YOU SO MUCH SHANNON YOU ARE THE BEST :) Love, Kristina and Joe
Hi Shannon! We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for EVERYTHING you have done for us! the moment we met you and saw the property at the John James Audubon Center on that stormy, cold February day, we knew that we wanted to work with you and that we wanted to start the next chapter of our life at the Audubon Center. your gracious hospitality from the very beginning to your organization the day of; you were nothing short of absolutely fabulous! We are actually at a loss for words, because we are not sure how else to express our sincere gratitude. the process of planning a wedding can truly be one of the most stressful times in a woman's (man's) life, but you made it as seamless as possible for us; and were just so helpful throughout all the months leading up to the big day. Our wedding day was everything we imagined it to be and more and we could not have done it without you, your help, and your team. Thank you again! We are already been referring you and the Audubon Center (as have our guests!); everyone had such a wonderful time. All of our best and well wishes, Keri and Matthew
Hi Shannon, Thank you so so much. We loved working with you. It was just so easy! You were laid back but got things done and always helped us and made us feel so comfortable. We feel very lucky to have worked with you! Our wedding was absolutely amazing and we keep saying it was the best day of our lives:) and everyone who was there said it was so much fun. The honeymoon was awesome too. Mexico is such a gorgeous place and the people were so friendly. We just did a lot of lounging, eating,and drinking :) Thanks again so much! Beth and Nick
Shannon, We would all like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts how truly special our day was. We had non stop compliments on the venue, food, music, just pretty much EVERYTHING! A lot of people said it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to, and that is what I wanted !! You were wonderful to work with from the beginning to end and you made me feel so comfortable. I really appreciate you answering all of the questions I had for you, which were SO many I'm sure. I felt like I was getting on my own nerves sometimes, haha! The day was truly amazing and everything came together perfectly. Thank you to JMC for their wonderful food and service. I wish I got to eat more of the food that day, just my anxiety keeps me away from it but we enjoyed the leftovers :) You all made our day one huge memory and I cant say enough how thankful we are. Keep in touch and thank you again for everything you have done. It was all perfect! Caren

Thanks to you and all of your help (not to mention your kindness, patience, and advice) we were able to have the wedding of our dreams@ Thank you so very much for everything you've done! Love, Elizabeth and Max
Shannon and Jam Catering, We cant even begin to tell you how perfect our wedding day was for the two of us and all of our guests. We heave heard countless times how amazing the venue and wedding was. The staff was so professional and helpful, and to be honest we almost didn't even notice they were there because of how efficiently and quickly they worked. Shannon, we can't thank you enough for all of your help. You were such a huge reason we had the wedding of our dreams. We will definitely recommend JAM catering to any and all future brides and grooms that we meet. Love, The Sadiwnyks
Dear Shannon, No thank you note will ever convey how truly grateful we are for everything you've done to help us plan our wedding. You are such a gift to everyone that gets married at Audubon. Thank you with all our hearts! Lots of love, Lori and Jonathan
Shannon, I've been meaning to write to you. We just got back from our honeymoon. We had an amazing time! The venue was beautiful and the food was fantastic. Thank you for seamlessly changing the ceremony location indoors. Everything was really perfect. We will be sure to recommend Jeffrey Miller and Audubon to anyone and everyone in the future. Amanda and Sam
Shannon, Thank you so much for everything you have done from the beginning all the way until now. We definitely wouldn't have made it through without you. I hope you know hos much we appreciate every little thing, and text :) Love, Lyndsay and Daniel
thank you for all your help and expertise to make our daughter Meredith's day so special. Diane and Chuck Kamp
Dear Shannon, Thank you so much for all you did for , and at, the Oniell/Easton Wedding on August 2nd. You were always prompt in responding whenever we had a question preparing for the reception. At the reception you were amazing! Not only did you personally attend to the bride and groom, my husband and I, but many guests commented on how helpful you were at request and many nice gestures were done without asking. The food was superb! I have eaten many wedding and banquet meals and this was the best. Not an easy feat for almost 200, moist steak and crabcake. All the guests raved about the food! The staff was excellent, they were helpful, friendly and took care of all requests. A special shout-out to the bartenders. Everyone was impressed there was never a line at the bar! A first for most everyone at a wedding open bar. Thank you again for all of your efforts on Saturday night. You went over and above and it showed. You were hopping all night ad we appreciate it. Thanks, Rebecca
Shannon, Than you for all your hard working making this day a reality. Best of luck! Jackie and Garrick
This is a review of my recent wedding at the beautiful John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove. There are a few times in life where you expect and hope for perfection , and your wedding day is one of them. We were lucky enough to experience the perfection that is Jeffrey Miller Catering at the John James Audubon Center and its staff-from our incredibly talented, and always available and stress-relieving planner Shannon Mullane, to the attentive and professional waitstaff and bartenders, and the creative and accommodating chefs and kitchen staff, our day was PERFECT! Prior to our big day, about three weeks before the event, they had re-sodded the grounds and made some unplanned improvements to the grounds that we were very pleased with. The Audubon Center staff was tidying the grounds the day before at the rehearsal and everything was absolutely gorgeous. Our ceremony was held outside at the honey locust tree. The chairs were arranged in the shade for the comfort of our guests, and all had a good view of the alter. The cocktail hour was held in the barn, which was air conditioned and quite a nice relief after sitting outside for 30 minutes. The barn is beautiful by itself with original stonework and exposed wood beams with some simple string lights hung to accentuate the natural beauty of the surroundings. The dinner and dancing was held in the pavilion which also had beautiful exposed wooden rafters with string lights, ceiling fans to ensure a cool breeze throughout the pavilion. The stone fireplace is elegant but understated and a perfect location for our sweetheart table. Our family, friends and wedding guests could not stop raving about the natural beauty of the venues, delectable hors d'oeuvres and entrees and overall quality of service we all experienced at Audubon! Overall, we would highly recommend this location to anyone looking to be married outside surrounded by natural beauty of green grass, beautiful trees, and gardens. We are forever grateful to everyone to making our day (and planning process) AMAZING!
Shannon, First, thank you for the amazing wedding day- it was everything I dreamed and more! Second,thank you for the flawless wedding planning experience. You were so flexible and accommodating!

Thanks so much!! We (and all of our guests) had an absolutely amazing time at the wedding!! it was PERFECT- I can't tell you how many people came up to me and said that it was exactly the kind of wedding they would imagine for me! And it absolutely wouldn't/couldn't have happened without you! I can't tell you how helpful your calm, in control demeanor was for my psyche. i absolutely felt like you had everything under control AND YOU DID! Seriously, it was perfect and we couldn't be happier! Thanks so much again, Maggie and Brian
We're headed to Mexico now for our honeymoon, but we couldn't leave without saying THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING! Saturday was truly magical for us. It was the wedding that we had always dreamed of, and we have been getting rave reviews from all of our guests about how gorgeous Audubon is and how great the food was! We really couldn't have done it without you. It's been such a pleasure to work with you!! You were so accommodating and helpful on every level. We hope the rest of your wedding season goes well, and we will absolutely be sending newly engaged couples your way! XO, Holly and Chase
Shannon, Thank you so much for helping make our wedding day incredible. All the meetings beforehand were so helpful! We had so much fun and everything was so well done. You were amazing at making sure everything ran smoothly and on time. Thanks so much for all of your hard work. Love, Lindsay and Chris Raynes

Shannon, Thank you so much for a wonderful evening. We completely enjoyed ourselves and would happily recommend all aspects of the event, venue, caterer, floral designer, photographer, and hands down the band! Thanks again for overseeing a great afternoon!!
Thank you for your hard work. Everyone I spoke to loved the food and had a great time!
Shannon, Thank you so much for coordinating our wedding. From our perspective, things went perfectly. Christine and Andrew
Hi Jeffrey, I just wanted to tell you how amazing our wedding was. Shannon and her team really went above and beyond to make everything great. Literally, EVERY person told us how amazing the venue and food were, and many of them said that this was one of the best weddings they'd ever attended. Thank you thank you thank you!! Thanks again, Alexis
Shannon, This email is long overdue. Our wedding was, in a word, fabulous. This is surely cliché, but guests don't lie- we are still getting rave reviews months later to the tune of "This was the best wedding I have ever been to, hands down" and "second best wedding ever after my own!" Everyone certainly always believes their wedding was the best, but in this case we worked together to create something beautiful and unique, with timely logistics to match. I could not have asked for much more. The grounds and facilities looked beautiful, the staff was attentive, and everything fell into place as it should. You were wonderful at helping guide me in my vision for the wedding without pushing too hard. Brides are relaxed when their planners are relaxed, and for that I commend you! Thank you for being so accommodating during our slight hiccup with the unannounced children in attendance. The last thing we would've wanted was unhappy or visibly disturbed guests, and no one seemed to be the wiser when the additional table was rolled out. The food deserves a separate paragraph. While we are by no means professional gourmands, and were decisive in choosing our caterer based on elevated menus and taste levels. We were very confident it would be delicious after our initial tasting, and Jeffrey Miller did not disappoint on October 12th (as the bride and groom we made a concerted effort to EAT at our own wedding). Hors d'oeuvres were demolished; recipes of which were asked for on the sly. There was not an overdone filet in sight. The vegans in attendance were so appreciative of their separate quinoa option- they even had meat eaters at the table sampling from their plates! Of the three chef-guests at our wedding, all of them commented on the freshness, flavor, and preparation of the food. Bravo. Thank you to you, Shannon, and all of the staff at JJAC and Jeffrey Miller for their professionalism and service. We will forever remember our elegantly rustic Audubon wedding. With appreciation, Lauren
Shannon,nnI hope things are going well for you. Emily and I want to personally thank you for a perfect wedding day! Everything seemed to go off without a hitch. We appreciate all the hard work you put in to make things appear seamless, so thank you so much!n
Hi Shannon, We just wanted to thank you for everything! Our wedding day was our best day yet and none of it could have happened without your help. We were so pleased with the look of everything (my decorations were arranged PERFECTLY, and the timing of everything was executed flawlessly! We really appreciate how hard you and your team worked to give us a perfect day and we couldn't have asked for anything more! And the compliments from our guests are still rolling in :) Again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! It really was a pleasure working with you!
Shannon, Thank you so much for all of your help in creating this special day for us! It has truly been a wonderful experience, and we know we have you to thank! Since day one, we felt that you understood our vision. We greatly appreciate your flexibility with our changes and prompt replies to our questions. Thank you so much. Amaya and Evan
This was truly a real life fairy tale wedding. Everything was exquisite and magical. Audubon is picture perfect everywhere you look. It is charming and will transport you to a world of romance and charm. It was a perfect day in every way!
