Wedding Photos at GMercyU


The Lady Garden, built in 1906-07, is GMercyU's formal garden and was part of the original estate.

For the design savvy, the garden is a Georgrian Revival design and the walls are the work of Horace Trumbauer, a well-known Philadelphia architect.

The Lady Garden features beautiful shrubbery, picturesque flowers and an ornate ironwork gate.

If you're a Griffin couple or are looking for a unique backdrop for your wedding or engagement photos, the Lady Garden is the special place for you.
