Featured Wedding Venue: Merion Tribute House

If there is one thing about being a wedding photographer, it is getting to see beautiful locations as a backdrop to a couple's most important day. One place that is truly unique, elegant, and full of history is the Merion Tribute House. The Merion Tribute House was established in 1924 by Elridge Johnson as a recognized tribute to the 81 men and women of the armed forces who were from Merion County. Along with the Merion residents looking for a community center with facilities for cultural and social events as well as a playground for children - the Merion Tribute House was born.

Architecture and Design

If you are looking for a wedding venue with a look that is refined and elegant, this is the place for you. The attention to detail within the construction is unparalleled. For instance, the lamps and ornamental iron work are all hand-designed by Samuel Yellin craftsmen. The window mullions are all hand cut to match the stone that was shaped on-site. Division patches and military emblems painstakingly placed into the stained glass completes a design that is truly perfection.

Photo Opportunities

Weddings have been a part of Merion Tribute House since 1924 and for good reason - the venue is reminiscent of a castle with grounds that provide a panoramic view of opulent terrain. Whether it's the stone archway or the outdoor greenery on the property    that you like - everything at the Merion Tribute House is in vivid, rich colors that simply exudes romanticism. A bridal bouquet thrown from the balcony or a stunning portrait in front of the heavy, oak doors - the choices are endless when it comes    to your wedding photos. 

Receptions and Ceremonies 

One thing that we especially love about this venue is the open floor plan that allows your guests room to socialize while still feeling like they're in a welcoming home atmosphere. There are three  rooms that are ideal for cocktails before the reception - the Legion Room, Lounge, and Memorial Hall. These three rooms connect to a flagstone terrace that leads to a ballroom large enough for 75 to 175 of your guests. This room will remind you of decadent receptions you've seen in the movies - with plenty of room to dance the night away. The main ceremony can be held anywhere on the 8-acre estate or indoors in either the Legion Room for smaller parties under 100 or for those with a larger    party - the ballroom is the ideal setting.
