**Set among 650 acres of rolling meadows and pristine woodlands in Media, Pennsylvania, Tyler Arboretum offers a setting unparalleled for its natural beauty, historic charm, and true romance. Here, Mother Nature's talents set the stage for breathtaking weddings held amid butterfly-filled gardens, towering trees, fields of wildflowers, and centuries-old structures.

WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT TYLER HAS COMPLETED A $1.2 MILLION RENOVATION PROJECT INCLUDING RENOVATION OF OUR CIRCA1792 BARN AND NEW TENTS EQUIPPED WITH BISTRO LIGHTING AND FANS.

Tyler's collections provide exquisite backdrops every season of the year. In spring, the perfume of hundreds of lilacs, magnolias, and rhododendrons fill the air, while the herb-filled Fragrant Garden comes to life in the summer sunshine. By autumn, the turning leaves of centuries-old trees steal the show. The beauty continues into winter with the snow-laden branches of state-champion conifers and hollies.

Within the stone bank barn, circa 1834 and tenting over an adjacent patio, we can accommodate up to 200 guests which overlooks a rolling valley of majestic trees and a babbling stream. Our newly renovated Barn can also accommodate up to 140 guests for dining.  The porch and lawn of another historic structure, Lachford Hall, circa 1738, are ideal for ceremonies and cocktails. The Arboretum's many gardens and charming structures offer unlimited backdrops for photography.

Dating back to a 1681 land grant from William Penn, Tyler has remained an oasis of tranquility for centuries. Twenty miles of marked trails encourage visitors to explore one of the oldest and largest arboreta in the United States. This exceptional rustic Delaware County wedding venue is located only 30 minutes west of Philadelphia in an area offering several charming bed and breakfasts.

My wedding at Tyler is set to take place in less then 2 months from today (Yay!!) and we can't say enough good things about the process thus far! Our initial meeting with Angela was all we needed to immediately book the venue without even looking elsewhere! Tyler itself is not only beautiful in every season, but the event spaces are exactly what we were looking for, we couldn't have created a more perfect spot to get married! From the rustic outdoor scenes and beautiful flowers, to the hanging lights and rustic decor, Tyler hit every check point we were looking for!! Our assigned wedding planner ( Lauren ) has always kept us up to date on what has been going on and made sure we were comfortable and able to have everything we wanted but that we stuck to our budget. A few weeks ago we attended the Jeffrey Miller tasting extravaganza and got the opportunity to sample many different types of appetizers, dinners and desserts. Everything we tasted was delicious which made narrowing it down a hard choice, but we got to customize our menu to our liking, even switch up some things to get everything just the way we would want!! We just finished up our meeting on site with Lauren and with less then 2 months to go, we are so excited for the big day to come and can't wait to get there and for Tyler and Jeffrey Miller to help make it the best day ever!!!

This venue has many great locations for pictures, and several lovely locations to hold your ceremony. When my fiancee and I walked around Tyler Arboretum we know it was the place for us. The new barn renovation is an amazing spot for the reception. We are very happy we chose this venue for our big day.

When we toured this venue for our upcoming wedding, we knew it was special. This was before they did the amazing $1.2 million renovation to the barn that really has made this venue out of this world. They have multiple locations to hold your ceremony and every one of them is beautiful. This new barn is really going to make this one of the most coveted venues in the area. It is seriously that pretty. Plus, Jeffery Miller Catering is the exclusive cater for the venue, and they have been great to work with and have crazy awesome food.

Angela and the staff at Tyler Arboretum helped create our dream wedding. We truly could not have envisioned a more romantic, beautiful day. The decor, food, and professionalism exceeded our expectations. We had the best day and were able to enjoy every minute due to the hard work of the staff. Our friends and family cannot stop talking about how wonderful the day was for everyone. We would recommend Angela, her team, and Tyler Arboretum to any couple looking to tie the knot in a romantic outdoor setting!

Angela, We had an incredible day, and heard only amazing things from everyone. We are so lucky that the venue was available and that you, personally, were able to be there for us! Your help was appreciated more than I can express. Everything was more perfect than I could have hoped for. We can't wait to come back to Tyler. Thank you so incredibly much, Mary (and Miguel)

Monica, I want to thank you and your staff for an amazing wedding. You were great!!! Our guest are still talking about how great the food was and how beautiful everything looked. I will absolutely be recommending JAM and Tyler to people. In fact a father stopped me on Sunday at Tyler to ask me what I thought...I had nothing but positive things to say. It really was a great wedding so thank you so much!

My son's wedding was last Sunday, May 27, at Tyler arboretum. Everything was terrific - one of those weddings everyone will remember for a long time as one of the very best. The hors d'oeuvres, meals and service were totally outstanding - drew rave reviews from our discerning guests. We were extremely pleased with the handling and management of the affair by Angela DiLella (Jeffrey Miller's wedding planner for Tyler Arboretum) she was terrific - can't imagine anyone more at ease and in total control, with a real eye for excellence. We will highly recommend Jeffrey Miller and Angela DiLella to our friends - those at the wedding already know they are outstanding.

We were extremely pleased. Ryane was fabulous to work with. Our captain was excellent too. Sue Cunnane was terrific at the start and in the initial planning phase. She sold us on the Tyler and Jeffrey A. Miller. Erin and Matt, 9/12/09

Monica, Thank you so much for your help with Kristin and Adam's wedding. You were responsive to the many extra things we asked for and did not question or criticize what we wanted. We were very impressed and pleased with the whole catering organization and your help throughout the whole event. We appreciate you all so very much! I have never seen so many people have so much fun at a reception! Even the young people said it was one of the best parties they had ever been to. Adam and Kristin thought it was 'awesome' and since we did it for them, it was a great success. Again, many many thanks. Sandi

Thank you, Monica, for everything!!!! The day would not have been nearly as wonderful without you coordinating everything. It saved us so much stress :) Thanks again for everything. The day was perfect, and I would certainly recommend Jeffrey Miler Catering to anyone. The food and fun were fantastic! Sincerely, Kristin Pupa
