Stephanie Nolt Photography Corporate Meeting Planners:

This is the perfect spot if you’re holding large meetings with separate group collaborations. Since this is an estate, there are many rooms providing options for splitting up individual groups, yet bringing them back together for a larger discussion. It’s also a very unique and upscale venue. Cairnwood is perfect for dinner parties and corporate galas.

Corporate board meetings, business triumphs, presentations, training sessions and holiday parties for hundreds have been hosted at Cairnwood. The estate provides space for those who think outside of the box when planning corporate events.


Michelle Lee’s Summary: 

Fall in LOVE! Cairnwood Estate is, “an architectural masterpiece.” My team has hosted weddings at the estate. While this quote above is from their brochure, I can tell you – it is one hundred percent true! If you love architecture and you’re looking for a venue that is unique and elegant, this is certainly it!

Are you a couple struggling with a destination wedding, versus a local wedding where all of your guests can attend? Cairnwood offers the feel of a trip to another world, just outside the city of brotherly love.

The Director, Shannon Walko, is from the  North Jersey/ New York region. She is the best testimonial to this amazing venue. Not only was Shannon married at Cairnwood, she now is their Director of Events! If you would like a personal tour, or additional information, you can contact Shannon at: Shannon Walko, Director – Cairnwood Estate 215.947.2004 ex26, email Shannon at, or visit

“I can’t say enough good things about DJ Shelly. I got married in a unique location where everyone sat in different rooms. I was nervous about how the night would flow, I really wanted everyone to be on the dance floor having fun. I couldn’t have imagined a better wedding, everyone danced ALL night. I have never been at a wedding where everyone was on the dance floor. It was truly amazing and everyone had so much fun. She made sure everything went according to plan all evening and checked in with me periodically to see if I needed anything. I would highly recommend DJ Shelly to anyone looking to have an amazing event and not worry about a thing throughout the process.” – Kara.
