Terrain Gardens

September 19, 2017

RBN Food and Beverage announces the Fall 2018 opening of Terrain Gardens, an innovative new venue that is now accepting booking requests for events taking place September 1, 2018 and onward. From the designers behind terrain at Styer’s, Terrain Gardens will offer a lush, horticultural setting with ever-changing greenery that creates a lavish backdrop for special occasions year-round for up to 150 guests. The venue, situated on the Philadelphia Main Line, will be part of the newly-created lifestyle center, Devon Yard.

“It’s with great excitement that we’re bringing this one-of-a-kind venue to the Main Line next year,” says David Ziel, URBN Chief Development Officer. “Terrain Gardens will combine the rustic beauty unique to the terrain brand with a contemporary edge, creating an event space unlike any other in the area. The venue will provide guests with an unforgettable experience – from conception and planning to the enjoyment of the day’s festivities.”

From weddings to mitzvahs and other significant events, those who choose to celebrate at Terrain Gardens will work hand-in-hand with the experienced Terrain Gatherings team to create an unforgettable affair.

The Venue
The venue will include four distinctive spaces; the Reception Room, a combination of rustic charm and modern amenities available for celebrations year-round; the Garden Porch, a weather-protected space overlooking the gardens; the Ceremony Garden, a secluded garden hideaway; and the Bridal Suite, a spacious and private changing area perfect for a quiet moment before the ceremony.

The Ceremony Garden, Reception Room, and Garden Porch can accommodate parties of up to 150 guests, with additional standing room. Additional spaces at Devon Yard may also be reserved for rehearsal dinners, groom’s packages, send-off brunches, engagement parties, bridal showers, and more.

Deeply rooted in nature and plant life, terrain merges house and garden to create an experience for all the senses. Adjacent to terrain at Devon, Terrain Gardens beautifully merges indoor and outdoor spaces to create unexpected color and texture combinations resulting in a one-of-a-kind beauty. The venue is adorned with elements like reclaimed barn wood floors, overhead festival lights, and skylights to create a unique aesthetic that’s the first of its kind on the Main Line.

Real Wedding of Brett and Matt

September 6, 2017

Brett + Matt were married on a warm mid-August day at Clarendon Ballroom in Arlington, Virginia. They began their day in DC at neighboring hotels The Willard and the JW Marriott before joining together for photos at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial. Their ceremony at the Clarendon Ballroom was transformed into a modern affair with tall white, pink and luscious green arrangements from Love Blooms.  Their guests snacked on fun apps such as individual Chinese carryout out boxes filled with Red Chill Chicken and Fried Mac N’ Cheese bites, while sipping on the couple’s Signature Drinks: Brett’s Sparking Bride and Matt’s Old Fashioned. Guests were then invited back into the Ballroom for a complete room flip. A mixtures of rounds and a 28 person King’s Table in the center were covered in lush arrangements (high & low) and candles galore. The night ended with tunes from Bialek Music, a late night cookie bar, and a bubble send-off to end the night.
