 Main Line
Appleford Estate & Parson-Banks Arboretum
> ApplefordEstate.com
The apple of the Main Line’s eye (at least when it comes to quintessential Main Line estates), this Villanova treasure offers guests a unique view into 22 meticulous acres from dawn to
dusk all year round. Originally part of a land grant from William Penn, the property includes an exquisitely restored Pennsylvania farmhouse, blossoming trees, boxwood gardens, stone walls, clear streams and even a waterfall. While Appleford is a popular choice for a wedding venue, it’s also a great choice for those more “relaxed” celebrations — such as a calming morning walk or an afternoon stroll hand in hand.
It’s a great way to say “I do” to some time outdoors.
