If you are seeking a wedding venue with a horticultural setting, a few acres of land, and rich history behind it, consider a wedding at Terrain at Styers.

Terrain at Styer’s in Glen Mills, situated 40 minutes from Philadelphia, stands on the historic site of the J. Franklin Styer’s nursery.

Many couples fall in love with this Glen Mills wedding venue due to its surrounding natural beauty. While it seems natural, maintaining a home garden is truly a labor of love. Think of a 5-acre garden filled with bright flowers and lush plants; that’s Terrain at Styer’s garden center.

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.
