From Classic to Contemporary: A Tale of 2 Philadelphia Wedding Venues

2 unique spaces | 2 equally incredible vibes


When you think about your dream wedding, do you imagine historic charm or sleek modernism? At Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), you don’t have to choose. You’ll have both unique options right at your fingertips as we work together to design the day you’ve imagined.

Two Unique Spaces

Fall in love no matter which you choose: the Historic Landmark or Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building. Or both!

Weddings at PAFA are unlike any other Philadelphia wedding venue. It's easy to see why. There are eye-popping design elements. Incredibly executed catering solutions. All at our ideal location in the heart of Center City.


We’ll custom design our spaces to match your needs from first look through final sendoff. Certainly, PAFA is an award-winning wedding destination. All at an approachable price for these reasons and more. PAFA's capacity ranges up to 350 guests.

Please contact Gail at PAFA for a customized quote and packages for your event.


Our wedding was magical and exceeded our expectations on all levels. The venue was perfect and our guests were blown away at the setting, the collection and how impressive everything was. I expect many guests will return as museum visitors to fully appreciate the magnificence of the collection.

Such a gorgeous place to have an event! Our executives gave much positive praise on the venue, and those that took the opportunity to browse and tour the galleries absolutely loved the experience. I have always been proud to be a Philadelphian, but on nights when we shine like we did during our event, I am even prouder to showcase our city to a crowd of folks who are from all over the country.
