CESCAPHE BALLROOM
923 N 2nd St, Philadelphia, PA 19123
What was once an ornate movie palace from the golden age of cinema has been transformed by Cescaphe into one of the city’s most spectacular wedding destinations. Vaulted cathedral ceilings, chandeliers draped in pearls, antiqued brass hardware, classic columns, and a floor-to-ceiling bar create a sense of luxury in the grand style. This magnificent setting makes every moment of your wedding—from the reception to the final dance by candlelight—an experience to be forever held in your hearts. Guests will be thrilled as the Bride enters from the top of our grand staircase, and photographers will love the photo opportunities from the Juliet balconies. TENDENZA
969 N 2nd St, Philadelphia, PA 19123
As they enter, your guests will be awed by a three-level cocktail area. And then, as they proceed into the urban-inspired ballroom, dazzled by an interior design that strikingly juxtaposes glass, stainless steel, reclaimed wood, and exposed brick walls with beamed ceilings. Combining elegance and originality, Tendenza is the perfect place to celebrate the beginning of a bright future together. In elegant ceremony space at Tendenza, the stage is set for romance as candlelight softly dances across the steel beams, glass tabletops, and dazzling chandeliers. A ceremony in the round brings your friends and family closer to the action, creating an intimate atmosphere for your exchange of vows. VIE
600 N Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19130
From the imported Italian mosaic to the soft lounge seating and custom-built lights and staging, every artful touch and carefully chosen furnishing is designed to both impress and welcome your guests. With its unique blend of expansive space and intimate settings, Vie helps you create grand affairs while keeping the spotlight on what matters most: Your love for each other. In its modern ballroom and charming outdoor courtyard, Vie offers settings that are both beautiful and intimate. In the Ballroom, elegant draping provides a classic feel, while amber lighting from the chandeliers adds a touch of drama to the Bride’s walk up the aisle. In the courtyard, guests enjoy perfect views of the ceremony on a built-in stage, framed by décor of plush greenery and hanging chandeliers, and accented by the contemporary texture of steel columns and exposed brick. DOWNTOWN CLUB
600 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19106
With tall windows that directly overlook Independence Hall and command sweeping views of Old City and the Delaware River beyond, the Down Town Club makes an unforgettable impression on every guest. An effect even further enhanced by the inlaid marble floors, hand-carved moldings, rich mahogany paneling, and other examples of the Club’s Georgian Revival elegance. This rich blend of American history, subdued luxury, and Cescaphe’s singular flair all seamlessly combine to create an unforgettable wedding in the classic tradition. The Down Town Club welcomes guests to your ceremony with a breathtaking view overlooking Independence National Historical Park. The stage is set with romantic draping to create a clean, classic background for all the ceremony’s special moments. Rich color, texture, and history entertain guests as they await the bride or groom’s graceful entrance. WATERWORKS
640 Waterworks Dr, Philadelphia, PA 19130
With Neoclassical architecture on the outside Water Works provides rich contemporary luxury in its lavish interior spaces in one of the city’s most picturesque setting, with columned walkways, a vintage gazebo, the Art Museum perched dramatically above, and Boathouse Row stretched out along the Schuylkill River just beyond. Water Works offers a variety of settings rarely found in a single venue. Its magnificent views, elegant structures, and landscaped grounds make adding an outdoor ceremony to your reception a natural choice. THE LUCY
231 S Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19107
Located on Philadelphia's famous Avenue of the Arts in the heart of Center City, The Lucy is perfect for sophisticated, luxe venues. The elegant venue combines a modern interpretation of 19th century detailing with modern textures and materiality. European inspired brass chandeliers illuminate marble accents and ivory wall paneling for a warm traditional aesthetic. Painted white brick and chevron wood floors evoke a timeless and classic emotion. The Lucy becomes unique with the ability to be customized to a bride and groom's personal desires and visions for their big day. The Lucy provides a setting for stunning, yet intimate wedding ceremonies. Just inside from the bright lights and vibrant energy of Broad Street, brides and grooms can exchange vows in front of their closest friends and family. FRANKLIN’S VIEW
200 N 6th St, Philadelphia, PA 19106
