Tucked away at the end of a long tree-lined drive, historic Appleford is the quintessential Main Line country estate. Visitors are welcome to stroll the grounds daily until sunset free of charge, and guided tours are available by special arrangement. The house is available for rental year-round and is perfect for special events.
The day, so long awaited, flew by when it eventually came. And yes, the rain did arrive for cocktail hour, but it did not matter in the least! I am glad we took the extra precaution of adding another tent for the second bar and string quartet as I think that helped to relieve any crowding in the house. The rain did give the guests chance to explore the house a little and notice all the personal touches Catherine had added, such as family photographs. We received many compliments on the choice of Appleford. Everyone loved the uniqueness of the venue. I took the opportunity at one point to watch from the bridal suite window and the setting did look quite magical - just as Catherine had hoped it would. The day was everything we could have hoped for and more! Thank you for guiding us through the process and addressing all our concerns in such a calm and professional manner.
Thank you for everything you did to help make our rehearsal dinner such a wonderful event! The whole wedding weekend was beautiful and memorable and I am so glad we chose to start it out at Appleford. It was a fantastic evening, and everyone loved the setting! I'd like to think that we will be back for another event at some point in the future so will see you then!
Thank you for allowing us (Wayne Art Center) to visit Appleford during the 2011 Wayne Art Center Private Garden Series. The program was a great success this season with over 40 students taking advantage of the chance to paint outdoors from nature. We strive to support the development of our students who choose the landscape as their subject. The practice of painting en plein air is vital to the development of one's craft but can be daunting in the absence of an opportunity to visit preapproved spots in the company and safety of others. Without the generous spirit of cooperation from private property owners and foundations, this program would not exist. Thank you for your willingness to share the beauty of Appleford with all its richness of architecture and garden views.
We are back from our honeymoon and I wanted to send you a note to let you know how wonderful our wedding turned out to be... and how our guests could not stop talking about how fantastic Appleford was! It was literally the talk of the evening! They loved the atmosphere Appleford provided and the beauty of the landscape was just incredible. Thank you for all you did to accommodate us organizing the jars/flowers/centerpieces the day before at the site. It made for a stress-free wedding day and it made it possible for us to do all of those decorations on our own. We thank you!!!
The day seemed like it would never come, and like everyone says it came and went so fast. I wish we could re-live it every week. We had the most beautiful day. I've never seen my daughter so happy. We knew Appleford was a beautiful place, but with you and the other Appleford partners it came to life. What can I say to you for assisting in a memory so precious that it will stay with me a life time. Thank you for your patience, assistance, and kindness.
