Ah, Front and Palmer. It’s pretty easy for me to talk about weddings at Front and Palmer in Philadelphia, because it’s where I married my beautiful wife, Susan. Front and Palmer weddings are perfect for those who are looking for a rustic, loft-like setting with a homey, intimate feel. Heck, who wouldn’t want that? While it’s not for those who are looking to throw an enormous party, it is, however, for those looking for an incredibly elegant event for 60-150 people. In addition, the caterer, Feast Your Eyes Catering, is in my humble opinion, one of the very best caterers in Philadelphia.
The service, quality of their food, and attention to detail, makes Front and Palmer a phenomenal option for those who don’t really want a hotel ballroom. The main area is intimate, but not too small for an amazing, theatre-like ceremony, and then it’s turned over seamlessly for the dinner/reception. The cocktail hour area is smaller, yet spacious enough for a lovely hour of drinks and passed hors d’oeuvres. The rustic, industrial space can be decorated in a wide variety of different ways.
At my wedding, we chose to put chandeliers and candelabras all around the room, and we chose not to have any floral decor. The warmth of the candle light and the warmth of the decor lighting gave an incredibly romantic feel to the venue. If I had to get married all over again, I wouldn’t do anything differently. I’d have my wedding at Front and Palmer, and yes, I’d marry the same woman!
