All wedding venues are beautiful, and ONE has so many gorgeous spots to take photos, but what really sets this venue apart are the people who work there! We had to reschedule our wedding and change venues due to COVID in the spring and selected ONE as the reception venue for our winter wedding. Natalie was immediately so responsive and her virtual tour was an excellent way to "see" ONE. We booked with ONE without ever seeing the venue in person, and we are so happy we did! The wedding planning process was tumultuous as Philadelphia COVID restrictions were changed many times; but Sue, Natalie, and Sara were there for us every step of the way! They were so creative with ways in which we could use the spaces depending on how many guests we would potentially be allowed to have. We had so many meetings (both happy and sad) and every time, I came away feeling that these ladies really cared and wanted to make the best of whatever was possible. We found out that we would be unable to have any reception at this amazing venue (due to COVID restrictions) less than two weeks before our wedding but they still allowed us to take our portraits in this beautiful building! It was perfect because now we have gorgeous pictures (safely) that we will cherish forever! As a bride who worked with another venue before ONE, I can say that they are not all created equal and when you work with this team you are getting a group of passionate, caring, professional people who will do their absolute best for you and your big day!
Perfect wedding experience! We were absolutely thrilled to have wedding ceremony and reception at One North Broad. Sue, Natalie, Sara, and the rest of the One North Broad team worked so hard and were incredibly flexible and responsive given everything that happened this year, and did everything they could to make our special day perfect. The venue is beautiful and unique, and all of our guests really enjoyed their experience. We would highly recommend One North Broad to anyone looking for wonderful wedding experience!
Amazing venue and even better staff! As two working professionals planning our own wedding, we needed partners not just vendors to pull off our dream wedding. Sue and the team at One North Broad were our MVP. Sue was available and responsive whenever we had questions. She helped us think through the entire wedding not just the items related to the venue. We didn't hire a wedding planner, but honestly with Sue it felt like we had one. Our wedding day went off without a hitch and we still have friends tell us it was the most fun they have had at a wedding. Terri and Catering By Design were also all-stars. The food was delicious and no one had trouble getting a drink. Terri worked with us to stay in budget and deliver an epic party. Sue and team also have character. Shortly after our wedding, we moved cities and in the process lost our deposit refund check. Sue reached out to ask why we hadn't cashed the check and made sure we got another one. She didn't need to do that but she was looking out for us. The venue is stunning and you'll likely pick ONB based on how incredible your photos will look; but from our experience, the people are even better.
Our wedding was truly a masterpiece. I know everyone says and thinks that of their wedding day, but it truly was--and so much of that has to do with the One North Broad Team and Catering By Design. My husband and I met in Philadelphia (where I am also from) so we wanted our wedding in Philly even though we live in New York City. For this reason, we knew that we needed a solid/responsive team to work with because so many of our interactions would be virtual. ONB and CBD were it! I will try to break this review down in sections because I vividly remember those days of scanning reviews/comments, trying to get the real dish/details on a venue before deciding to visit or book. CORRESPONDENCE/SETTING UP INITIAL VISIT Sue Cunnane, the director of Sales/Events at ONB, is THE best. She is ON IT. I found the best way to get in touch with her was via email, but she never hesitated to jump on a call with us if/when we needed. I initially reached out to her/ONB through their website, and I heard back from her immediately. I had a list of questions that I asked venues before even deciding to visit, just to ensure they met our criteria/budget, and Sue answered them all. I found many venues were not as transparent about their prices/process--and forced you to schedule a visit to get information, which would ultimately prove a waste of time and resources. This was not the case with Sue, she provided great insight which led to our scheduling an in-person visit that worked well for our schedule since we were traveling down from NYC. On the day of our visit, both Sue and Terri Fair (Catering By Design Event Specialist) greeted us and gave us a VERY detailed tour and wedding information packet. CATERING BY DESIGN CBD is ONB's exclusive caterer. Initially, we were hesitant about venues that had exclusive caterers because we are FOODIES and we wanted the venue and catering decisions to be separate. However, CBD did not come to play! Knowing how passionate we were about choosing ONB as our venue, but unsure of CBD as our caterer, Terri arranged for us to have a tasting BEFORE we made the official commitment. To me that gesture alone demonstrated that they were not just invested in receiving our money/business, but committed to proving they could be the perfect fit for our perfect day. What also sold us on CBD was their many many catering options. A lot of catering companies have their set menu tiers with set prices, and you just pick from a list. CBD, however, works within your budget and food preferences to make your dreams reality! While we still opted for a traditional seated dinner, we had the option to do family-style, buffet, etc... And the range of food options from their hors d'oeuvres to their entrees were overwhelming in the best way imaginable! A foodie heaven! [SOME] REASONS WE BOOKED/SAID YES -Thorough and timely communication. My husband is a lawyer, and he had a LOT of question, comments, and concerns! Sue/Terri answered every single one in a timely and professional manner -Ceremony and Reception all in one. We got married in February, so we did not want to ask our guests to travel from one ceremony location to another reception location. We felt as though that also ruins the momentum. Furthermore, we did not want a venue where they would have to convert the ceremony space into the reception place during cocktail hour. We wanted distinct and designated spaces for the ceremony, cocktail hour, AND reception. ONB has that with their ornate ceremony rooms upstairs (so many to choose from--we went with Renaissance Hall) which lead out to the Foyer Under the Stars for the cocktail hour, and the Ballroom on the first floor for the reception. -Central/Downtown location. Location is EVERYTHING and ONB is in the best location for a city wedding. Easy for out-of-towners to find and get to, and closely located to all the best hotels. -Designated Bride AND Groom Suite (Groom/Groomsmen deserve a suite too!) -Grand Staircase-- always wanted one and KNEW many iconic photos would be taken there by bridal party and guests alike. I could go on forever, but will try to tie this up. We did not have a wedding planner, nor did we hire a traditional florist-- I did a LOT myself with the help of family. I was worried how this would play out with getting decor and flowers to and from the venue (we had a lot: menus, signs, name plates, centerpieces, etc). I later realized I had no reason to worry. We decided on a day for pick up AND drop off, and the amazing staff at ONB helped us to both load in and load out-- providing efficient customer service that was out of this world! Choose ONB if you want not only an elegant Philadelphia wedding, but a personalized experience with staff that puts YOU and your needs/desires first and creates an as close to a stress-free process wedding planning could ever be!
This is an incredible venue. Book now! Sue is so sweet (as is Terri, of Catering By Design), and incredibly helpful. The venue is just extrodinary, so unique and so beautiful. Our wedding day was seamless. Our guests had an amazing time, and the entire process was stress-free. We wanted to have an all-in-one venue and this truly fit the bill. There's a ton hotels within walking distance, and everything was just so easy. It was truly a on-of-a-kind experience and I cannot recommend it enough. The ceremony rooms are so cool. The reception room is regal and feels so grand. The staff were helpful and professional, but Sue and Terri really make the day so perfect and everything go off without a hitch. I was able to plan my dream wedding in 11 months with their help, and it got everything I wanted, and it wasn't beyond our budget. The value is 10/10. It's cliche, but it really was the best day of our lives!
Hi Sue, Thanks to you, Liz, Sarah, Natalie, Mike, and your fantastic team for all your TLC in making this such a mystical, magical and buttoned up event. I think it turned out just how we imagined..even better for that matter. I look forward to working with you and team again in the future and you?re the best!
Sue everything was wonderful really appreciate all your help I think clients were really excited about the venue, the catering and the entire experience.
Thank you for everything! Oh my goodness, you exceeded all of our expectations and helped to make our wedding so incredibly easy, fun, and beautiful! Everything was seriously perfect. Thank you for all your tips, ideas and overall planning help. Thanks for your attention to detail and accessibility. We cannot thank you enough for helping us and helping to make our special wedding day so seamless and perfect. We truly felt like we were in a fairy-tale. It was awesome!
Hi Sue, Thank you so much for all you and your staff did to make our event so wonderful. It was truly a special night for our organization and we received excellent feedback about everything from the food, to the venue, to the service! We are very grateful!
Thank you so much for all your help planning and on our wedding day. We also have received so many compliments and our parents were extremely happy with everything! There is not one thing we would change and the service was amazing.
ONE North Broad was the most beautiful place to have our wedding! Our guests were incredibly impressed with venue and couldn't stop talking about how amazing it was. Sue was wonderful to work with. She answers questions so quickly and was so helpful! We loved ONE, it was perfect!
We had a wonderful and stress-free experience working with Sue and Terri at ONE North Broad for our wedding this past month. From the booking to the whole planning process, both Sue and Terri were very easy to reach via email and cell and were very quick to reply to and ease any of our concerns that came up. All of our guests are still raving about how beautiful the historic venue was and how elegant the wedding was
One North Broad and working with Sue was such an exceptional experience. My daughters wedding was perfect in every way. Sue, I can?t thank you and your staff enough for such an amazing event. Highly recommend One North Broad!!!
It was wonderful! Thank you!
Sue: My guests were universally thrilled with the event and I?m grateful! You and your team are a joy to work with! Thank you. Ray
Sue, It was a pleasure working with you and Terri. The event was a success! Wonderful on all accounts!
We were wowed by the beauty of the venue immediately! Our experience with Sue throughout the planning and right through til then end of the night was impeccable! The wedding was a dream come true!!!
This venue is unrivaled in terms of architectural beauty, history, and majesty - and it's the best-kept secret in Center City. Our guests were amazed by the setting, the quality of the food, the service, and every detail of the evening. What a splendid setting for our daughter's wedding.
Sue, We want to thank you and all of the staff at ONE North Broad for all the work that went into making our daughter's wedding day so perfect. From the planning stages to the execution on Saturday, we could not have asked for more. The day was everything that Kate and Alex hoped for and, as parents, exactly what we wanted for them. We are still hearing from guests who tell us how beautiful and unique the venue is and how much they enjoyed themselves. We are so happy that our family ad friends had a great time. Thank you so very much for helping create a wonderful, memorable wedding day for our daughter and our new son-in-law
I cannot say enough good things about One North Broad and our coordinator Sue. She made the whole experience easy and was extremely good about answering all of our questions (we had a lot) and accommodating all of our needs. She has all the necessary experience - which really helped to make my life a lot easier. Additionally, the historic venue was absolutely incredible. We wanted something timeless and elegant - this venue certainly fit the bill. We had the building all to ourselves for the wedding - and Sue's attention was solely focused on our event when it finally came. If you book this venue, you will not be disappointed. I know every bride always says their wedding was the best - but I feel as though Sue and One North Broad truly made it an unforgettable experience for myself, my husband, and our guests.
One North Broad offers a truly magical experience. The grand halls, highly ornate architecture and classical music playing in surround, make you feel like you are in a dream. The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional. Terri and Sue were wonderful to work with.
One North Broad was the perfect backdrop to host our wedding reception. We had 220 guests that traveled to Philly from all over for the weekend. They were absolutely stunned by the beauty, history and uniqueness of the venue and still haven't stopped talking about it! Upon arrival, they were guided upstairs by the amazing Catering by Design staff where we had a cocktail hour in the black and white tiled 2nd floor hallway. ONB also had two of the meeting rooms open with docents in them - giving our guests the opportunity to learn a little of the building's fascinating history. At the end of the cocktail hour, guests were guided down to the ballroom where tables were set beautifully, amber lighting lit up the ornate pillars and the band was playing while the bronze statue of Ben Franklin loomed in the back. This room is seriously beautiful and definitely what caught our eye during our first visit. The stained glass windows, ornate tiled floor, beautiful statues all make for a grand and historic feel. Our wedding felt so classic, a formal affair with a nod to the deep and rich history of Philadelphia. Our guests can't stop talking about what a great place it was. We planned this wedding from afar and can't say enough about how easy it was. Sue was amazing to work with and helped make all of it come to life so perfectly. If you're looking for a place that will feel special and really wow your guests, you should definitely pick One North Broad!
We had a very enjoyable, easy time booking and working with ONE. The wedding was gorgeous and Sue made sure everything was taken care of!
My daughter's wedding was last weekend -- spectacular! We had so many guests tell us how wonderful the venue, the catering, the food was. As the Mother of the Bride I can tell you that Sue Cunnane (ONE Broad) and Nancy Schwoebel (Catering by Design) were SO easy to work with along with the staff at One Broad. They could not have made the day any easier on us and our guests. THANK YOU for giving my daughter the wedding she always dreamed of.
Our wedding was beyond what I could have ever imagined, the venue was amazing as was the food and the service. Everything was taken care of for me, I wasn?t stressed at all leading up to the wedding because of the level of detail and professionalism I received from Sue and Nancy. Our guests still can?t get over the venue and food!
Where to even begin?! We are still on cloud 9 from yesterday. Thank you SO much for all your time, help, insight, support, and truly hard work that went into making Brides, Bubbly & Brunch another success! We were thrilled to have the opportunity to host this year?s event at ONE North Broad again and are so happy with how the event went. Our partners and the guests were blown away yet again with the countless stunning elements of the venue, the delicious food, and activation throughout Brides, Bubbly. We cannot thank you enough! It?s been such a pleasure working on the past two events with you. 2018 Brides, Bubbly was our biggest one to-date and it was truly seamless. Thank you so, so much again for everything!!
Thank you again for everything. We have had nothing but compliments and kind words about Friday?s event. Our guests were mesmerized by the Ballroom and we will definitely consider the Temple for events again in the future. I?m so appreciative!
I reached out to Sue at One North Broad inquiring about a ceremony space. She called me the very next morning and was incredibly transparent about my wedding ceremony options and pricing. I met with her just a couple of days later to view the spaces and was absolutely AMAZED by the beauty of the space! Sue was so helpful and kept the communication open between us, even reaching out to my vendors to make sure they were all set with space and plan. My husband and I are still in shock by the perfection of our day. Thank you!
Thank you so much for a wonderful event!!! One North Broad is a truly breathtaking venue and we enjoyed every minute! We received many compliments from our guests on how amazing the venue was and we couldn't agree more.
Hi Sue, Thank you so much for everything! We all enjoyed ourselves so much. The space was beautiful and we are looking forward to next year already!
The event was absolutely wonderful and I?ve heard nothing but terrific reviews! Thank you for a gorgeous holiday luncheon?we couldn?t have been more pleased.
Sue was so welcoming and wonderful to work with. She was flexible when my fiancé and I popped in the week before without notice and we went over some details. The space is incredible and unlike anything our guests have seen.
Sue, Our attendees had nothing but great things to say about the venue and the food. It was a pleasure working with both you and Terri and big thanks for making our event seamless and a success.
My wife and I recently had our wedding at One North Broad. Sue Cunnane was our coordinator. She was outstanding to work with. She guided us through the process, listened to us, returned all emails and telephone calls very promptly. The event space is absolutely incredible! We continue to receive telephone calls and emails from our friends and family telling us how much they loved the space at One North Broad for our wedding. We could not be happier!
It was a pleasure working with you?.we truly enjoyed the venue, the staff and the service. Already working on the 50th celebration?we?ll keep you posted.
Thank you. You and your staff where great. I would highly recommend to anyone if they want to get married in Philadelphia to use your venue.
I can't say enough good things about this venue. For starters, pictures don't do it justice. All of the rooms and even hallways are absolutely breathtaking. Our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful it is. We knew from the moment we stepped in the building that this was where we would have our wedding. Sue was amazing to work with. She was extremely helpful and professional throughout the entire process and especially the day of the wedding to make sure everything went smoothly. Our day was absolutely perfect! I would definitely recommend ONE North Broad for weddings or other private events.
Sue, Thank you so much for your help and the positive staff that assisted our guests. Everyone heaped high praise on One North Broad. Most importantly, Toby was overwhelmed by the facility and the party itself. The guests were having such a good time that I could not herd them out the door. I think that is a compliment to the facility.
I used the Masonic temple for our ceremony venue on July 15th, 2017. It was the best decision my husband and I made. The venue was absolutely gorgeous and was exactly the look we are going for - sophisticated but unique. Sue was fantastic to work with - so nice, understanding and responsive. I felt extremely calm and stress-free on the wedding day basically because of her. The temple has so many rooms to pick from for an individuals wedding day and absolutely each of them is so beautiful. I was blown away by the options. We took pictures before the ceremony at the temple as well and each was absolutely gorgeous. It looked like around the wedding that it might rain the day of - but having this venue made that possibility totally okay with me and my husband - just means more photos at the Masonic Temple and lastly, we could have spent all day in there taking photos. I could not imagine anywhere else better for us to get married. I think this is truly the hidden gem of the city!
Our daughter and son in law's wedding ceremony was 7/15/17 and held in the Masonic Temple, What a perfect location for a wedding that felt magical. It was such a comfort to know that if weather did not hold up there were lots of opportunities for beautiful photography! It was important to our daughter to have a different ceremony location than reception and we felt extremely fortunate to find that the Masonic Temple would afford us such an opportunity. The room rental was reasonable considering the beauty of the setting and the support of wonderful staff. Sue could not have been more responsive and helpful, even storing mirrors and other items for a Tuesday pick up. A memorable day at a memorable place! Thank you to all the staff at the Masonic Temple especially Sue and Trish!
Sue - Everyone had a wonderful time on Tuesday! Thanks for making the event so easy to plan.
Everything was phenomenal! Everyone loved the venue and food. That top hat dessert, omg, I could have eaten them all, thankfully I only had one! I hope you have many inquiries because of this event, I would be surprised if you didn't.
The best Venue we have ever had a party at. The food and service was outstanding and our guests are still raving about it. Thanks Sue you made everything perfect!
The venue was amazing and the food and service impeccable. I received many accolades from our members how awesome the décor, venue, faire and ambiance was. Thank you for having docents available for a special tour and information. I was personally blown away by the space and rich history.
The venue will impress your guests and affords a lot of beautiful photo opportunities with the spectacular grand staircase and ballroom. This is definitely a place to consider for a grand wedding event.
Dear Sue, It was a pleasure to have our special event at One North Broad. The venue was breathtaking in every sense of the word. The condition and accommodations of the Temple were shear perfection. My guests all complimented me on our choice of venue, they raved about the tile, columns, stained glass, majesty architecture, the Statue of Benjamin and the women went wild for the Ladies Room, which made me so happy cause I thought it was the icing on the cake. Your staff was professional, warm, attentive and very accommodating at ever turn. My experience was memorable and heartfelt. The care and support you lent to me at ever turn made all the difference in the world, you help to set the stage for an extraordinary celebration. I would highly recommend you and One North Broad as the top spot in the city to throw a party. I feel fortunate that I was able to be a Trailblazer in my circle of friends and family to hold our party there and I anticipate many more parties will come your way. I would love to have another celebration at your Prize Location . With much appreciation, fondness and joy I thank you.
The venue is so unique and beautiful and the staff made the entire experience so easy! Our ceremony was even better than we expected. We wouldn't change anything about it. If you want a venue that is breath taking, unforgettable and will surpass your expectations, you found it!
We are so happy we chose to have our wedding ceremony at The Masonic Temple. From start to finish, everything went perfectly. Our contacts at the Temple were Danny Hinds and Sue Cunnane. They were extremely responsive and went the extra mile to help us make the event go seamlessly. Additionally, I do not think it is possible to find a more attractive ceremony venue in all of Philadelphia. We were in the Corinthian Hall, which is so well decorated it almost feels ethereal. While we chose to use an aisle runner and flower petals, the room truly needs no extra enhancement. We have started to go through our pictures and are so happy we chose ONE for our ceremony venue!
