PRLog - Feb. 20, 2013 - WILMINGTON, Del. -- Wilmington, DE – Even though the year has just begun, it has been a good one for the Carriage House at Rockwood Park in North Wilmington. Located on the grounds of the historic English-style country estate of Joseph Shipley completed in 1854, the banquet venue specializing in weddings and receptions was recognized for its outstanding service and high level of professionalism by two of the nation’s leading lifestyle media companies, the WeddingWire and The Knot. Determined by the number of positive reviews submitted by brides who had booked a bridal event in 2012, The Carriage House was awarded WeddingWire Network’s annual “Bride’s Choice Award” and The Knot’s “Best of Weddings 2013.”

“To be recognized by either organization is quite an honor, but to receive an award from both makes us feel doubly proud for back-to-back awards,” said Craig Trostle, President of Greenery Caterers/Carriage House at Rockwood Park.
With over one million reviews, WeddingWire recognizes the top five percent of wedding professionals as determined by the positive experiences expressed by clients on all the network’s affiliated sites, including WeddingWire.com, ProjectWedding.com, Brides.com, MarthaStewartWeddings.com, and WeddingBee.com.
The Knot’s Best-of award is reserved exclusively for top wedding venues across the country determined from reviews “by brides, for brides.” The Knot is part of the XO Group, Inc., that provides women with information on many stages of their lives through such sites as The Knot, The Wedding Channel, The Nest, The Bump and The Blush.
“We are exceedingly happy to enhance the image of Rockwood Park by introducing the historic site to so many. Last year over 120 bridal, business and social events were hosted by the Carriage House attracting more than 15,000 guests,” said Trostle.
In addition to bridal receptions and weddings, the Rockwood Park banquet venue also hosts social gatherings and corporate functions.
