We’ll begin accepting reservations for 2022 wedding dates starting on February 14, 2022 – Valentine’s Day! Stay tuned for info on our special annual event on that day, and we look forward to seeing more of you next year!


Did you know you can get married in front of Philadelphia’s landmark LOVE sculpture?

Artist Robert Indiana’s LOVE sculpture is one of the most photographed spots in Philadelphia. It will also make a great backdrop for your wedding!

Already married? You could also hold a Vow Renewal Ceremony and say “I do” all over again!
