Each year more and more couples choose Tyler Arboretum as the setting for their wedding. Arboretum facilities can be rented for wedding ceremonies, receptions, or a combination of ceremony and reception. Jeffrey A. Miller Catering Company, the Arboretum’s exclusive caterer, provides full-service catering. Couples are encouraged to reserve well in advance, as dates fill quickly.
Choosing Tyler Arboretum as the location for your wedding or for a special gathering ensures a unique and unforgettable event. 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.
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 snow-laden branches of state-champion conifers and hollies.
Within the stone bank Barn, circa 1792, a reception room can accommodate gatherings of up to 80 guests. The capacity is increased to 150 when combined with tenting over an adjacent terrace that overlooks a rolling valley of majestic trees and a babbling stream. For larger parties, a freestanding tent can be erected on the Painter Library lawn set among flower-filled beds, or alongside the Fragrant Garden. The porch and patio of another historic structure, Lachford Hall, circa 1738, are ideal for ceremonies & cocktail hours. The Arboretum’s many gardens and charming structures offer unlimited backdrops for photography.
