Description

Greystone Hall is a stately mansion at the center of an English style country estate. Like the Vanderbilt’s Biltmore mansion in North Carolina, the DuPont mansions in and around Wilmington, Delaware, and the mansions at Newport, Rhode Island, Greystone Hall stands today as a living monument of the era of great American mansion building from the Gilded Age to the 1920’s. On a warm day, the ceremony takes place on the fountain terrace in front of the wrought iron arbor with the fifty-six-column pergola as a lovely back drop, which marks the perimeter of South Lawn. Stately architecture and formal grounds have made Greystone Hall a popular setting for truly regal wedding ceremonies. It has even inspired period and themed weddings! Most receptions at Greystone Hall start with cocktails and hors d’oeurves served in the mansion or in the North Garden with its marble fountain surrounded by semicircular benches. Inside, guests who are interested in architecture, woodwork, antiques, and oriental carpets may explore the mansion’s formal rooms. The rest of the evening can unfold in the Tent-Pavilion, overlooking the terraced landscape gardens and the south lawn. At dark, spotlights dramatically light up the garden fountains, statues, and the white columned pergola, fostering a romantic atmosphere you won’t find elsewhere!
