The Independence Ballroom was the only place we fell in love with. It helped that the views around the building were historical and really signified Philadelphia, which is where we are both from. We love our city so to have our reception at IVC made it feel so much better. They were very helpful and also made everything so easy to plan. I would recommend this site to anyone looking to get married in Philadelphia.
The location is beautiful and highly unique. When we hosted our wedding we were able to choose between various caterers, now they have preferred with Max & Me. Two downfalls with the location, I left a few items at the Hall and when I came back from the honeymoon I was told that they were thrown away. Not happy. And the exclusive caterer hosted an event the next day and used the tent we paid for without offering to pay for part of the tent. The events coordinator for the IVC suggested that it was common practice to split tent cost if two events occurred. But the story changed.
