Event Professionals

With the expert help of your wedding specialist, we can recommend the best the city has to offer for every aspect of your perfect day down to the smallest detail. 

The Ballroom

The Ballroom is intimate and elegant, able to comfortably accommodate up to 275 guests for dinner and dancing. If you select the Ballroom for your ceremony, the room will be swiftly transformed from seated dining to a more open floor for your exquisite dinner dance. While this takes place your guests can enjoy a cocktail reception in the Grand Salon, given over exclusively to your event.

Your Photographs

There is a choice of idyllic settings available for your wedding photographs. Depending on the weather, our Grand Staircase provides a warm indoor location while Rittenhouse Square and our Mary Cassatt Garden provide beautiful settings for al fresco photography.

Your Tasting

An exciting part of pre-wedding planning is a personal tasting of the food and drink that will be served at your event. Your dedicated wedding specialist will organize the opportunity for you to sample a variety of courses, all prepared specially for your event, from canapés through to dessert. They will also help provide options on perfect pairings of champagne and wine. Each course will be digitally photographed to ensure it is exactly replicated on the day.

Your Rehearsal Dinner
