Our Elegant Events Wedding Planning and Design team recently had the pleasure of working at the magnificent Cairnwood Estate in Bryn Athyn.

This spectacular Beaux-Arts-style mansion, built in 1895, combines classical Greek and Roman architecture elements with French Renaissance details. Built for the Pitcairn family, they have hosted fantastic weddings on their property for more than a century.

Elegant Indoor Spaces

The Dressing Rooms are tastefully decorated, and how clever is the hook for displaying wedding gowns for photos?

Dining on the South Terrace

The Terrace is the ideal location for dinner. It offers sweeping views of the property and works well with any color story. The white, gold, and red color palette of this recent wedding were simple yet elegant.
