How Long Has The Darlington House Been Around?

 

The Darlington House was established in 1928  and has been used as a wedding venue since the early 1980s.

 

The Darlington House Is Historical, Correct? Tell Us More About That.

 

Once the seasonal home of Mrs. Sybil Darlington, Darlington House still echoes a lifestyle of gracious living, elegant dinner parties and delightful musical concerts. Mrs. Darlington was an East Coast socialite who built the home and gardens around her love of entertaining, which creates a perfect, natural flow for weddings and other events. The imaginative, one-of-a-kind touches that Mrs. Darlington and her architects sprinkled throughout the library and patios were inspired by her love of travel to exotic destinations like Egypt, Morocco, Spain and Portugal. Whether you are planning a small gathering or a large gala, Darlington House offers an unforgettable venue for your special day.

 

Tell Us A Little Bit About The Event Space! 

 

Darlington House offers historical charm and modern elegance. Your guests will be impressed from their first glimpse of our foyer's dramatic staircase and our beautiful living and dining rooms. Our Egyptian Patio offers an intimate ceremony space complete with a tiled fountain surrounded by lush landscaping, a brick patio and dramatic arches. The Andalusian patio is most notable for its antique tiling, marble pillars, and intricate ironwork, making for an interesting cocktail hour space. Your bar will be housed in our vintage library, inspired by Spanish architecture. Our crown jewel is the Rose Garden, where your guests will be thrilled to celebrate your event surrounded by citrus trees, flowering rosebushes, a tiled fountain and lovely brick patio.

Is There A Getting Ready Space For The Bride And Groom?

The sitting areas, dressing rooms, and restrooms are decorated in a serene and romantic style with vintage-inspired wallpaper and furnishings. Couples will enjoy the relaxing atmosphere that allows enough room for an entire bridal party to gather before the ceremony.

 

What Types Of Couples Is The Darlington House A Perfect Fit For?
