Booking process

Vaux allows you to book a year ahead or a week ahead(depending on availability of course!). It is nice to know that is it possible to plan a small, sweet wedding within in few months or even weeks if that’s what you are looking for.

Planning Your Intimate Philadelphia Wedding

At Vaux, they will walk you through the package options that range from an elopement or up to 22 guests. Perhaps you want to keep it simple and just do your vows there, or maybe you want to cut the cake and sip champagne and mingle with your guests, Vaux can accommodate either.


You are welcome to bring your own decor to adorn the altar or add your own flair, but it really is just lovely as it is! How wonderful that you don’t have to think about decorating the space if you don’t want to and you can just arrive ready to go!

You could reserve a table at one of the many Philadelphia restaurants to celebrate and keep it to only those who came to the ceremony.
