The bride and groom both got dressed at Independence Park Hotel in Philadelphia. Convenient to their venue and the nearby historic national park for photos, it was an ideal location and pretty inside and out.
The Merchant Exchange Building is located at 3rd and Walnut in Old City Philadelphia and is a popular stop for wedding day photos. With its grand columns and impressive architecture, it’s no wonder couples like this historic site for photos.
If you are planning a small wedding in Philadelphia, consider looking for a restaurant. One thing Philadelphia is full of is delicious food! There are many options for wonderful and tasty locations that offer lovely spaces as an alternative to a traditional wedding venue, especially for smaller gatherings. This couple curated a fabulous Royal Boucherie Wedding in Philadelphia for their celebration. They chose to host both their ceremony and reception at the restaurant using both the upstairs and downstairs spaces, creating a lovely flow for their party.
The couple rented out the entire restaurant and they were able to enjoy the lovely parlor room upstairs for their ceremony. The Garden Patio is a unique covered patio that feels like a sunroom or greenhouse and they used for wedding photos. For a micro wedding, you could even have your ceremony there. The restaurant space on the first floor was their reception area and guests were able to chat in cozy booths, relax at the bar, and mix and mingle with each other in celebration of the bride and groom. The Royal Boucherie offers a boutique experience allowing you to customize your day in the different spaces and choose from their delicious menu options. I hear the Steak Frits are not to be missed! They also offer an amazing raw bar option. I love that they can host weddings from 8 to 125 guests. The ambiance is sophisticated yet welcoming and the service is top-notch.
