Botanical Gardens

Exchange vows surrounded by fragrant blooms and lush greenery of a Philadelphia garden. Host your wedding at the oldest botanical garden in the country, Bartram’s Garden boasting incredible scenery and stunning views of the Philadelphia skyline. Located on the banks of the Schuylkill River, the well-kept gardens feature an extensive native and exotic plant collection, landmark stone house, orchards, meadows and a river

Historic Venues

Philadelphia presents couples a variety of historic venues suitable for a dream wedding and rich with history. Places to get married include stately mansions, historic buildings and old museums. Consider the Lemon Hill Mansion; built in 1799 on 43 acres. It is named after the numerous lemons grown on the surrounding land. The structure and grounds are a fine example of Federalist architecture evoking the lazy gentle life of the early nineteenth century.

Stylish and Modern

Couples seeking a contemporary venue for their nuptials will enjoy the many offerings from the City of Brotherly Love. Found on Arch Street, the Philadelphia Center for Architecture makes a great location for a modern-inspired wedding. The large facility features a sleek modern design, green energy practices and sustainable reclaimed interiors. Amenities include state-of-the-art technology systems, Wi-Fi, extra-large screen projector and all inclusive rental fees.

On the Water

Share a starry-eyed wedding along the spectacular water’s edge of the elegant Water Works Restaurant and Lounge located on the Schuykill River. Situated on Water Works Drive, the history of the Water Works Restaurant and Lounge is famed as a former engine room for the Philadelphia Water Department. What makes this a great wedding location are the breathtaking views of the river and boat rows, Mediterranean-inspired cuisine and close proximity to downtown Philadelphia. Features include outdoor cliff-side terraces, riverside veranda and romantic ambiance.


Say “I, do” at one of the most eclectic sites of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Magic Gardens. Located in the South Street neighborhood, the Philadelphia Magic Gardens features outdoor art in a highly creative environment.
