We spoke to Domenick Savino, CPCE of Drexelbrook for some insight on Drexelbrook and the wedding industry.

When asked about the features that make Drexelbrook unique, he told us that “the natural beauty of Drexel Hill, calming stream, gazebo, majestic porte cochère and a brand new Holiday Inn & Suites offers couples an experience that will last a lifetime.”  As for the history, Domenick informed us that since 1950,Drexelbrook has been an icon in the wedding industry. “Generations of families chose to marry at Drexelbrook for our delicious food, impeccable service and an atmosphere that reflects their personal styles.” 


With so much experience in the industry, Domenick shared some tips for booking your perfect venue. Most importantly, you and your guests should feel comfortable at your venue. “Select a venue that reflects your personal style and tastes, similar to selecting a home. If rustic is your vibe, select a barn or winery. Is modern your style? A chic hotel ballroom might work. For a DIY couple, your house or historic location will work.  Of course when it comes to needing a venue and hotel, Drexelbrook is a great option!” 


Drexelbrook partners with the new Holiday Inn and Suites to provide lodging for your guests. With a hotel on site, guests do not need to worry about travel arrangements and the bride and  groom can get ready there as well. The modern-style hotel features a restaurant, bar, and beer garden for your guests. xnick shared that “Wedding Weekends” have become popular lately. With the Holiday Inn and Drexelbrook’s Special Event Center, everyone can stay in with no driving needs. From cocktail parties on Friday, activities on Saturday afternoon, the reception Saturday night, and a reviving brunch on Sunday, you can have a jam-packed weekend of wedding fun.
