This venue such a hidden gem! It is absolutely stunning and is located in the perfect spot, right in Center City Philadelphia. The staff, especially Jormas, was extremely helpful and made sure everything went flawlessly from the very beginning planning stages until the last song of our wedding night. The venue is gorgeous on its own and does not require much decoration. They also work with you to find the best preferred vendors for your taste and budget. We could not be more pleased with the service and accommodations of this venue!
