Winterthur Museum

Max Capacity: 1000 people
Nestled in the heart of Delaware’s picturesque Brandywine Valley, Winterthur Museum & Country Estate stands a world set apart - a place where history lives on in spectacular gardens, romantic landscapes, and a breathtaking mansion filled with magnificent American antiques. Once the grand country estate of Henry Francis du Pont, the 175-room house remains a rare national treasure, where beauty, art, and history combine. The garden Mr. du Pont created is a masterful example of naturalistic design, delighting and inspiring visitors in every season. Set amid nearly 1,000 acres of rolling pasture, the garden is the ideal locale for an equally memorable wedding celebration or special event. Catering by Restaurant Associates is Winterthur’s exclusive caterer and one of the nation’s premier catering companies. Restaurant Associates provides premium dining services at world class museums, performing arts centers, and aquariums such as Longwood Gardens, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to name a few.

MAGICAL BARN WEDDINGS The barn, built in 1844, is framed with massive hand hewn beams, secured with wooden pegs. The barn will be well decorated with an eclectic assortment of antiques, original oil paintings, stained glass and seasonal floral decorations; our goal is that our 'decorating budget' will eliminate the need to include any 'decorating expense' in your budget. The description of Spring Hill Manor used most frequently by Brides and guests is, "Magical". The gardens at Spring Hill are designed to resemble 'old world' estate gardens. The garden walks and walls are constructed with granite cobblestone, recovered from the streets of Baltimore (circa 1700's). The garden plantings have been selected to provide color, texture and interest in every season, and fairies, fountains, and antiques hide in the garden foliage to delight your guests. For our Fall events, we bring in truck loads of pumpkins to add a 'harvest' feel to the grounds. The format for most of our weddings is for the Wedding Ceremony to be an outside 'Garden Ceremony'. Typically, the ceremony is performed atop a small stone wall, which provides a perfect stage for easy 'line of sight' for all of the guests and your photographer. The Bridal couple will have their first 'married kiss' inside the frame of our 'Moon Gate', draped in the foliage of wisteria vines. The 'mythology' attached to 'Moon Gates' is, that a marriage performed under a moon gate will last forever. If weather should preclude an outdoor wedding, the Ceremony will be moved indoors, where guests will enjoy the nuptials in an equally elaborate Barn setting, 'dinner theater' style. The following 'list' may help you to quickly fill your own 'check off list' and aid you in choosing (or eliminating) our venue from your "short list"; *The entire wedding day is devoted to ONLY your wedding. *The 'window' for your celebration is 12:00 Noon to 12:00 Midnight. *A planned outdoor ceremony can easily ‘transition’ to an indoor wedding. *The venue is NOT ‘Tied’ to other venders i.e. YOU choose your caterer. *The Barn is an authentic historic barn – not a commercial reproduction. *The opportunities for spectacular wedding photos at Spring Hill are unmatched. *Most areas of the venue are handicap accessible. *You are NOT responsible for 'clean up'. *The wedding experience at Spring Hill is ‘outside of the box’. *The venue is completely decorated (save your decorating budget).
