The Shambles at Headhouse Square Wedding

Headhouse Square Wedding

The Shambles at Headshouse Square offers a lovely outside space for gathering and celebrating. The cobblestone streets and charming brick buildings create a picturesque ambiance that is special to this historic neighborhood in Philadelphia. It is a wonderful space for a summer wedding and reception that many people don’t realize you can rent!

This open-air venue was a lovely backdrop for their intimate city wedding ceremony. I love that it is outside, but also covered in case of rain and offers shade from the sun!
