The steep $3450 to use the church is well worth it. Besides, you know that your money is going towards good things. The church is absolutely beautiful and the staff nice and helpful. It's one of the oldest churches in Philadelphia, kept in immaculate condition. There are love red doors and a garden for priceless photo ops.

The fee includes the organist, and the organ here is magnificent.

They were also gracious enough to allow us to bring in our own officiant to co-officiate the wedding.

Everything here was perfect. On the day of the wedding, they treated me like VIP. The food was mouthwatering. No one could believe how delicious the food was. The steak was done perfectly, and even the vegetarian option was out of this world, not your typical pasta dish. The cake was unbelievable.

The space itself is gorgeous. The marble columns, the fancy lobby, the stylish chandeliers in the cocktail hour room, and of course the ballroom - it's pure, exquisite luxury.

As for the planning part, I thought there were times I felt I was working too hard to get in touch with our wedding coordinator. But in the end, everything was perfect.

We also got a great value here because of last minute corporate cancellation :)

Hotels/Accommodations

We had a room bloc at the Marriott. They were generous in their bloc rate and even when our rate had "expired," they accommodated last minute guests by extending the room bloc rate.

The hotel is really nice. I had never visited the hotel until I checked in a few days before the wedding. The lobby is humongous, the rooms are very spacious. And the woman arranging my room bloc was very on top of things and sweet enough to send me a bottle of champagne and help with the distribution of gift bags for out of town guests.

The only faults I found were:
1. I had submitted "the" contract form to the Marriott 6 months before the wedding, but they had lost it somehow. Luckily I had my old e-mail so I forwarded it back to them.
2. They didn't update me on the number of guests, so I had to make more gift bags last minute and drive into the city to drop them off again.
3. Some of my guests did not receive gift bags.
