Premier Philadelphia Historic Wedding Venues
Take a step back in history and enjoy the prestige of Philadelphia's high society. Posh clubs, grand mansions, and elite architecture offer unique historic spaces for timeless wedding receptions and special events.
Philadelphia is home to some of the most historic wedding venues and event spaces in the country. Explore our historic Philadelphia wedding venues and find the perfect fit for your event from a 1920s Arts and Crafts style mansion in Merion Station, an 1889 racquet club in Center City, a Tall Ship on the Delaware River or a fine arts academy with Victorian architecture dating to 1876.
Choosing a historic Philadelphia wedding venue is a sure way to create an unforgettable event. Your guests will enjoy a trip to another time admiring the building’s architecture, historic paintings, statues, and the story it holds. Imagine your photos on the marble grand staircase at Philadelphia’s Masonic Temple, on the balcony of a Tudor mansion in Doylestown or picture yourselves dining in an Old City Philadelphia ballroom where George and Martha celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary. Historic Philadelphia wedding venues have the unique gift of artifacts, period pieces and spaces that transcend time. In fact, many wedding venue rentals, museums, and hotels are very close to Independence Hall, the most historic area in the City of Brotherly Love while the Liberty Bell is close by.
Perhaps an arboretum in Wyncote with a 1937 Renaissance Revival ballroom is more your style. Or a New Hope bed and breakfast on an 18th century estate complete with 21 acres of gardens. Maybe a 19th century fieldstone barn in Audubon with an apple orchard is better suited. From castles to museums to yacht clubs, to Fairmount Park mansions, and estates with riverfront vistas, there is a wide variety of Philadelphia historic wedding venues to consider from West Chester and Newtown Square to Lafayette Hill, Washington Crossing and Boathouse Row.
