If you want a wedding, and wedding photos, that proudly announce their location in the City of Brotherly Love, there are many options. The Philadelphia Department of Parks and Recreation manages events at about a dozen facilities throughout the City, including Bartram’s Garden, the Barnes Foundation and Lemon Hill Mansion. Smaller and lesser-known—but just as beautiful—locations are also in their portfolio, like Cosmic Cafe on Boathouse Row, and there are other great options for those that want an intimate reception.

In addition to a lovey view, the in-house caterer here provides simple, locally and sustainably sourced food.
