PHILADELPHIA WEDDING IN OCTOBER

October, 2007 in Philadelphia

"If you want something different than the church/hotel wedding and reception, Merion Tribute House is a fantastic and beautiful location. With lovely grounds for an outdoor ceremony, and great architecture with a wonderful ballroom indoors, it provides space for about 150 guests comfortably. The only downside is the meager selection of local hotels and distance from the airport and Center City."

Attraction:

Italian Market District

"If you love Italian food or open-air markets, or both, you should not miss this area. Amazing fresh pasta (we love the ravioli from Superior) and everything else you could dream of. While you're here, don't forget to visit Isgro Pastries!"

Attraction:

Philadelphia City Hall

"Another wonderful historic building. If you have a chance to visit Center City, be sure to walk through City Hall!"

Attraction:

Philadelphia Museum of Art

"Besides being a beautiful piece of architecture and home of the steps Rocky ran up (as well as an honorary statue of the him), it houses a number of lovely pieces of art. Sundays are "Pay what you wish" admission, so we encourage you to go by on Sunday before the big event! An exhibit of "Renoir Landscapes" is scheduled during that time, in addition to the permanent offerings. (Anonymous's favorite is the statue of Diana in the Great Stair Hall.)"

Attraction:

Reading Terminal Market

"A lot of history here, too! Started in 1892, and revitalized in the early 1990's, this market is a terrific place to check out the wares of the local Amish, get some terrific local wine (don't forget the cheese to go with) or grab a snack (or a whole meal!). Lots of fun, and bring cash for shopping (not all the stalls accept plastic)."
