When we first walked into the Baldwin School, we felt like we were transported back in time. The gorgeous architecture, complete with a grand staircase and stone fireplace, makes you feel as though you are a member of Philadelphia high society in the early 1900s. The entire space is elegant and sophisticated, which is sure to leave a lasting impression on all our guests. We will be getting married at Baldwin in November 2013. The ceremony will be held on the grand staircase and the reception will be in the large hall - a beautiful room with hardwood floors, leaded windows and a door leading out to a covered wrap-around porch where guests can get some air and mingle, even if there is inclement weather.Aside from the space and all it's great history, the events coordinator Donna has been a pleasure to work with. From our first meeting with her she was very kind and accommodating, especially in helping us stay within our budget. She has bent over backwards to make sure we have all the information we need and has already significantly reduced our stress level throughout the planning process. We have no doubt that the day of our wedding will run smoothly thanks to her professionalism and experience. We would recommend Baldwin to anyone looking for a unique, historic venue.
Absolutely beautiful location, and the staff was great!
The Baldwin School, formerly the Historic Bryn Mawr Hotel is the perfect location for your special event. The five-story, chateau-style structure oversees 22 private landscaped acres in a distinguished Main Line location, just nine miles west of Philadelphia. Our beautiful grounds and indoor spaces are the perfect backdrop for your wedding ceremony or reception, bar, bat or bnai mitzvah, corporate function, family reunion or other special event.
Your guests will be welcomed to a warm period style of deeply set windows, several wood burning fireplaces and a sweeping covered veranda. With the beautiful landscaping and the inside charm of Baldwin, couples have many photo opportunities before their guests even arrive. Baldwin, with its cascading grand staircase, provides a spectacular grand entrance. Since we host only one event at a time, we offer two air conditioned dining rooms to choose from. We can host a smaller gathering of up to 120 guests or something more elaborate where as many as 300 guests may enjoy seated dining and dancing in one room. Overall capacity is up to 700 for a cocktail reception.
