The Philadelphia, South Jersey and Delaware region is so exciting and different when it comes to wedding and special event venues.

There are not a lot of cities across the country with the number of historic properties we have – venues ranging from old barns and historic estates, to colonial era mansions and museums.

On the other extreme, we have glistening new modern spaces as well as reclaimed factory and loft spaces. Spaces on the water, at the shore, in the mountains and in big open fields…

Our region has it all.

Recently we’ve seen venues blending the old and the new.

Several of our favorite Philly venues have undergone a little facelift – a transformation to add some modern touches, add space or just to freshen them up.

Vista at the Top of the Tower –

One of our favorite spaces in Center City, this amazing space at the top of the Bell Atlantic Building (1717 Arch) has the most AMAZING views in the city in addition to wonderful food and service! The recent renovations enlarged their ballroom to a capacity of 200+ with dancing and opened up panoramic views to the south.

The Downtown Club –

The beautiful space located in the Public Ledger Building has long been a favorite.  No other space in the city has views looking straight out on Independence Hall or the Liberty Bell. In recent months, after being taken over by The Cescaphe Group, it got a great freshening up with great contemporary touches. The expansion of several small meeting spaces into one larger space for cocktails really highlighted the views of Independence Park.

The DoubleTree by Hilton, Center City Philadelphia-

They’ve continued their hotel wide work of freshening up – the Ormandy Ballroom had a new contemporary look! The space now measures up to the exciting menus, beautiful guest rooms and the personal attention of Wedding Specialist Lisa DeLuca!
