About Terrain at Styer’s
Ceremony and Reception Locations at Terrain at Styers
The outdoor Ceremony Gardens feature a beautiful stone walkway leading to a wooden wedding temple imported from India. Surrounded by old sycamore trees, your loved ones can watch you exchange vows in the beautiful wooden chairs provided by Terrain.
In regards to locations for portraits, this is also a great spot to have your first look.
The Garden Shed
The Garden Shed functions as your wedding reception space! With a floor made from beautifully rustic wooden beams along with tables and chairs to match you can’t go wrong. The space holds a maximum of 110 guests.
Oh yeah, did I mention that this place is BYOB? Bring your own drinks, signature cocktails, etc. and they’ll provide the bartenders and barware.
You can have your formalities inside the garden shed or in the brick courtyard next to the ceremony space.
The Hot House
When it gets cold or the weather is bad the Hot House functions as an alternative indoor space for your ceremony. The Garden Shed directly attaches to it, so your guests won’t need to walk far! It’s also a beautiful space for a first look, portraits or extra cocktail hour space.
The proximity to the Garden Shed is also a HUGE time saver, which can make planning your wedding timeline go smoothly.
The Mushroom House
The owners lovingly restored the historic Mushroom House to serve as both a couple’s suite and a bridal suite. You can take a break here with your partner, hang out with your wedding party, and get ready.

Who was Franklin J. Styer?
Franklin Styer, a Pennsylvania Quaker and botanist born in 1900, led the way in the cut-flower business. Like his father who brought mushrooms to Kennett Square, PA, Styer became known for his fresh-cut peonies. These flowers became highly sought after, with the New York City Flower Market snapping up his entire production.
