The Grey Towers Castle is the picturesque venue for a dream wedding ceremony and reception. Receptions are usually held in the Rose and Mirror Rooms, both of which are air-conditioned and can hold up to 175 people each for a sit-down reception. Grey Towers Castle is only available to host a wedding/receptions from mid-May until the first Saturday in August.
Grey Towers Castle is on the register of National Historic Landmarks. Completed by famed architect, Horace Trumbauer, Grey Towers Castle was inspired by Alnwick Castle in England. The interior, however, showcases Trumbauer's eclectic style, with a selection of various French influences ranging from the Renaissance through the age of Louis XV. As you enter into the Grand Hall, you can imagine your wedding photos staged on the magnificent Grand Staircase.
