We’ve Got The Perfect Outdoor Reception Venue For You!

One of the biggest debates that couples have when planning a spring wedding reception is whether to host it indoors or outside.

Fortunately, at Drexelbrook Catering & Special Event Center, you can have the best of both worlds! Our incredible ballrooms are equally as impressive as our stunning patio, you can combine the spaces together to make the wedding venue of your dreams.

The Perfect Outdoor Reception Venue

Rain or shine, Crystal and Daniel knew that Drexelbrook was the perfect location to host their June wedding reception. Lucky for them, their wedding date promised plenty of sunshine and warm weather, which meant they could take full advantage of our massive patio.

Not only does our patio boast fire pits, plenty of lounge chairs and high-tops, and a fully stocked bar, but its impeccable landscape provides a relaxing place to step a way for the moment, take in the fresh air, and snap several photos with your guests.

At Crystal and Daniel’s wedding, it proved to be the perfect spot for guests to sip on their welcome glass of champagne while enjoying the hors d’oeuvres, and to set up the hookah provided by Eventricity!

Mouthwatering Hors d’Oeuvres

There were plenty of hors d’oeuvres being passed around by our staff, both inside and outdoors. Some of the guests’ favorites were our Three Mushroom Tart with Goat Cheese & Leeks, Ancho Chili-Seared Chicken on Grilled Flatbread with Chipotle Mayo, Pan-Seared Scallops “In-Shell” with Bacon Jam over Wasabi Mashed Potatoes, and Pulled Pork Tacos with Jack Cheese & Roasted Yellow Pepper Cream.

Hors d’oeuvre stations were also set up both on the patio and in our Nostalgia Hall. Guests could fill their plates with pastas made to order at our Primo Pasta Station, or enjoy our Black Angus Burger Sliders with Pepper Jack Cheese and House-Made Chips.

The Main Event

After enjoying the setting sun over our patio, guests moved into the Grand Ballroom, which was spectacularly decorated and perfectly illuminated with purple uplighting. After their first dance, Crystal and Daniel made their way to their sweetheart table and enjoyed a salad appetizer before listening to several speeches accompanied by a champagne toast.

Once the speeches were done, the Drexelbrook Catering & Special Event Center staff brought out the main courses. Guests had a choice between Boneless Breast of Chicken stuffed with Mozzarella & Fresh Herbs topped with Lemon Champagne Sauce, Atlantic Salmon Stuffed with Crab Imperial infused with Lemon & Garlic, Chipotle Tenderloin wrapped in Applewood Smoked Bacon with Roasted Tomato Demi-Glace, or Eggplant Involtini filled with Sautéed Spinach, Ricotta Cheese, & Diced Seasonal Vegetables.

The guests then hit the dance floor, where an incredible DJ from Rock It Entertainment kept them moving and grooving all night long. They even set up a photo booth where Crystal and David had the chance to dress up for some candid, goofy photographs with their family and friends!

A Sweet Ending To A Perfect Night

When it came time to cut the cake, made by our friends at The Master’s Baker, Drexelbrook had the perfect accompaniments to make dessert an event of its own. Not only were slices of cake topped with our homemade Berry Compote and Whipped Cream, but we opened up the North Ballroom to reveal an entire Sweet Endings room filled with plenty of dessert stations to satisfy every craving!

Our Deluxe Viennese Presentation was a real hit, where guests could choose from Hand-Filled Ricotta Chocolate Chip Cannolis with Dipping Chocolate, Warm Bavarian Chocolate Fondue with several tasty accompaniments, and a Berry Shortcake filled with Vanilla Bean Mousse & topped with Berry Compote.

The real treat came when guests saw our Waffles & Ice Cream Station set up next to our Make-Your-Own S’Mores Station. In addition to making this popular summer favorite over an open flame, guests could top Hot & Steamy Belgian Waffles with scoops of Hand-Spun Chocolate Ice Cream, Hot Fudge, & Whipped Cream. Naturally, guests loaded up on these delicious desserts and immediately took them out to the patio to enjoy in the warm summer-like air.

Congratulations to Crystal and David, and thank you for allowing Drexelbrook the opportunity to make your wedding reception the perfect spring party you’ve always dreamed of!
