Parque is a gorgeous wedding and event space located in the heart of Pennsylvania’s 2600 acre Ridley Creek State Park. Complete with a stone mansion, formal gardens, fountains, patios, and an intimate ballroom all sheltered within a romantic forest. 

With three unique ceremony locations, you're sure to find one perfectly tailored for your day. Say "I do" at the base of a grand stone staircase or with the backdrop of the old stone ruins.  Each location is more romantic than the next.

As you explore the grounds, we will capture organic images that will grace your home for decades to come.  These are the images that your grandchildren will cherish- the start of your forever. After a delicious dinner, you’ll dance the night away inside the intimate ballroom complete with grand fireplaces and lit by soft candlelight.

As you leave the manor as a married couple,  after celebrating with your family and closest friends, you’ll be so thankful to be starting your life together.  And even more thankful that you chose Parque at Hunting Hill Mansion to be the start!



It's the day of your wedding and sunlight is streaming through the tall trees that surround the stone ruins that form the perfect ceremony backdrop.  A breeze gently whispers through the Pennsylvania woods and kisses your cheeks as you stare into the eyes of your beloved and pledge yourselves to each other...

LONGWOOD GARDENS ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS - THE PERFECT VENUE

The original stone Tudor known as Hunting Hill Mansion,  brings old world charm and romance to the entire wedding day.  Inside the hardwood floors, lead paned windows, and beautifully ornate plaster ceiling bring a richness that is unparalleled.  The mansion is surrounded by a beautiful flagstone patio for cocktail hour and has many secret areas that make for beautiful portrait backdrops.

THE STONE MANSION

The beautiful stonework that can be found all throughout the grounds at Parque are a truly stunning focal point for this venue.  There is nothing more romantic than exchanging vows under the shade of the tall trees, with a beautiful stonework backdrop.  What a perfect way for your guests to watch you say "I do". 

THE CEREMONY SITES

There is something so serene about this space being held in the heart of Ridley Creek State Park.  With 2600 wooded acres surrounding this space it feels like you can truly escape into your wedding day.

THE PENNSYLVANIA WOODS

My favorite aspect of Parque is that it feels like a private oasis.  You want the entire space to feel secluded from the hustle of bustle of everyday life for your wedding weekend and that is what Parque within the confines of Ridley Creek State Park can provide.  The entire staff at Peachtree Catering is such a joy to work with as well!

What is your favorite aspect of this venue?

Should we do a send off?

One of the great things about Parque is that it is set in the picturesque Ridley Creek State Park.  You are surrounded by the Pennsylvania woods which provide a beautiful backdrop on their own but Parque nestles their ceremonies in the old stone ruins.  It is a secret garden type feel that is truly incredible!

Do you recommend getting married on site?

Family formals are typically best done near your ceremony space.  Family will all be present after the ceremony and your ceremony space typically has beautiful florals.  This decorated space makes for a perfect backdrop for family formals and creates photos you want to hang on your walls!

Where can we take family formals?

The short answer is yes.  Parque at Hunting Hill Mansion has so much space and it honestly feels like it's own private haven.  The venue has unobstructed views of the Pennsylvania woods.  It feels special and it photographs so beautifully!  From the fountains out front to the back patio and the wide open fields the entire space is overflowing with gorgeous photo opportunities.

Are there sufficient grounds for portraits?

Yes!  This is a huge perks of Parque!  They have an absolutely gorgeous bridal suite that has an ample amount of space for you and all of your attendants.
