You guys made our wedding the most magical, chill, all-around amazing experience ever! You are the sweetest, most on-the-ball people I've ever worked with... for anything! It was so incredible. Just... everything we wanted! I have the deepest gratitude for you all.

Lindsey & John

Thank you very much for providing such a beautiful venue and great service for my daughter’s wedding. All the guests raved about how kind the staff was, how great the food was, and how beautiful the setting was. The wedding was a dream come true for Meghan! Your seamless changes from ceremony to cocktails to dinner to dessert was extraordinary. Thank you again for a memorable and lovely evening.

Heather

Connie & Mark

Now that the insanity is over, I want to say absolutely from the deepest depths of my heart, thank you for everything for last night. It was honestly a dream come true. You and your staff were incredible, everything was perfect, and I couldn’t have asked for more. John and I are amazed, the guests were amazed, everything was just the best thing ever. So, thank you, thank you, thank you! I was beyond happy the outcome and you’ve been our biggest asset through this whole thing.

Lindsey

We had such an amazing experience with the College! They helped everything fall into place perfectly! They were helpful, considerate and flexible and I would highly recommend them. The food provided by Catering By Design (their caterer) was inventive and delicious. Diana, our liaison, was a joy to work with and helped organize everything. Highly recommend.

Meghan & Stephen

We spent a good portion of our honeymoon talking about how great our wedding was. It was so beautiful, the food was delicious, and your staff was so professional and helpful to everyone. Rich said you are one of the best he’s ever seen. I appreciate how you made everything look so pretty, and all of your attention to detail throughout the whole evening, and during all the planning.

Angela & Rich

I can’t say enough! It was beautiful, delicious, elegant, and I didn’t have a care in the world. Your team took excellent, excellent care of all of us. Everyone loved the food and drinks. Gary and his team were consummate professionals. I very much look forward to working with you in the near future.

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

Sometimes the best location for your event is your own backyard. But what if you want that home-party to sparkle with the décor and service of an elegant fine events venue? Our Full-Service Catering and Event Design Services can travel anywhere in the Delaware Valley and down to the Jersey shore. Serving venues from our historic exclusive partners to corporate offices to your own space!

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!
Embracing that Fall Wedding feeling at @michenerart ✨ Congratulations to newlyweds Joe & Mackenzie!

Guests were treated to welcome champagne as they took their seats for the ceremony outside on the terrace at the Michener Art Museum. The crafty bride prepared the decor for the day! The bride and groom also provided pashminas for guests to keep warm as the sun began to set on Doylestown. 🌅
.
For cocktail hour, guests made their way past the event pavilion to enjoy the tented space in the sculpture garden. We served the couple’s specialty cocktails (French 75 and Whiskey Sour) alongside hors d’Oeuvres like Green Chili Arepas and Buffalo Brussels Sprouts. 🍸

For the main event, guests made their way inside the event pavilion, which features breathtaking floor-to-ceiling glass walls.
