Bolingbroke Mansion

Bolingbroke is conveniently located and features a quiet lawn and garden area with an attractive raised stairway and landing. A naturally suitable site for wedding ceremonies, the rear lawn also provides ample space for receptions and dinner or cocktail parties. With a lovely side covered porch off the living room, guests will feel invited inside to explore the historic mansion. The multiple interior rooms are great for intimate events, and a bridal suite can be found tucked away upstairs.

The College of Physicians of Philadelphia

The eight individually unique spaces our building offers can satisfy any of your event needs.  As you enter our historic building, you are greeted by the stunning Marble Rotunda. The all-white octagonal interior, framed by majestic columns, provides a sophisticated space ideal for receptions and pre-event gatherings. Accenting the rotunda is the grand staircase, which leads to the great halls of the second floor, and is perfect for photography opportunities.

ONE North Broad

One, at the majestic Masonic Temple, is a stunning world-renowned architectural wonder, featuring magnificent rooms based on themes of ancient architecture and sweeping grand staircases. The Grand Ballroom seats 250 for a sit-down dinner, and when combined with the Grand Foyer, can host 450 guests for receptions. The second floor marble Foyer can host an additional 200 guests for a reception “under the stars.”  Additional foyers, reception spaces and exquisite meeting rooms create the perfect setting for more intimate events.

James A. Michener Art Museum

The Michener Art Museum is a destination for art lovers with its one-of-a-kind collection of impressionist paintings. The Edgar N. Putnam Event Pavilion has been constructed to allow for private events on site at the museum, set amidst a magnificent sculpture garden. The all-glass structure has won a medal in design excellence and can accommodate a range of events with indoor and outdoor configurations.

Historical Society of Pennsylvania

Founded in 1824, one of the nation’s largest archives of historical documents, including over 21 million manuscripts, books and graphic images is in Center City Philadelphia and represents over 400 years of U.S. history.  Now with a newly-renovated reception hall, you can host family, friends, clients, and colleagues in the intimate setting of the Historical Society! A truly unique venue steeped in history and located in the downtown Philadelphia.

Tented & Off-Premise Events

Check out this great review on Wedding Wire for Michener Art Museum and Kelly Cloonan ⬇️

Kelly the Unspoken Superstar -

I don't believe that I was a bridezilla, in fact the opposite and more of a AWOL bride. As a medical student that had multiple finals and rotating through different hospitals that were out of state she managed to coordinate everything. She ensured that everything went smoothly and I cannot speak highly enough of her patience. Kelly's impeccable coordination and meticulous attention to detail made our wedding experience seamless and truly unforgettable. As the coordinator, she effortlessly orchestrated every aspect, ensuring that all loose ends were expertly tied just before the big day. Her professionalism and dedication were evident throughout the entire process. Kelly exhibited exceptional organizational skills, promptly addressing any concerns or last-minute adjustments with grace and efficiency. Her proactive approach and calming presence reassured us, allowing us to fully enjoy the moments leading up to our wedding. As for the venue itself, it shines elegance and radiates beauty. Truly a hidden gem!
