Katelyn & Nick’s wedding day at the Buck Estate was SO much fun. The moment we walked into the bridal suite, we knew it was going to be one of our favorite weddings. The bridal party immediately made us feel like family (it’s hard to describe how amazing that feels!). This also makes the wedding photos so much better, as interactions are more natural. We were also blessed with beautiful weather, which always makes the wedding planning process much easier! This is the perfect venue if you’re tired of that stuffy barn feeling and interested in a cultural center dripping in history.
A wedding venue with history and elegance
The Pearl S. Buck Estate is a stunning wedding venue located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It is about 30 minutes west of New Hope, and has endless options for your dream wedding (it’s certainly a wedding photographer’s dream as well!). The estate is surrounded by 67 acres of beautiful gardens and rolling hills, and offers a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces for wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions. The beautiful grounds of the Pearl Buck house has a very rustic feel with the historic stone archways. The unforgettable setting is perfect for an outdoor wedding with seasonal flowers.
The estate was originally built in the early 1900s by Pearl S. Buck, a Nobel Prize-winning author and humanitarian. The home is even a National Historic Landmark, and it is filled with beautiful woodwork, stained glass, and other period details. The estate includes a barn, a greenhouse, and a variety of gardens that are perfect for wedding ceremonies. There is more than one ideal location for outdoor ceremonies on the perfectly groomed grounds. The Pearl Buck Estate is a popular wedding venue for couples who are looking for a unique and elegant setting for an amazing wedding. The fully customizable estate pavilion aside the rustic greenhouse is the ideal setting for cocktail hour (and even lawn games)!
Beautifully lit reception tent
An October wedding always holds a special place in our heart, and Buck’s Estate delivered! In the evening, guests moved between the dance floor and the fire pit that was set up on the stone patio, across from the water features. The exclusive caterer is Jamie Hollander catering, who always does a top notch job with outstanding food (I seriously wish I had some as I write this post). The true test of a fantastic caterer is if the day is stress free, which it certainly was! The wedding party always had plenty of food and drinks. If you need any good suggestions for other vendors that are high class, please let us know!
