10/10 recommend Philly's up and coming gem FAME!!
My husband and I were so delighted to have our wedding at Philly's hidden gem FAME. The venue was absolutely perfect for our needs and fit our wedding day visual perfectly. It is truly an enchanting space. One of our family's and our favorite aspects of FAME that makes it such a cool place is the freight elevator to bring guests up to the fourth floor (where the wedding reception took place). The freight elevator was a neat experience for our guests! Off the elevator on the fourth floor, guests are greeted warmly by a wonderful ambience and vibe. We fell in love instantly when we saw it for the first time! My husband and I and our families can not stop talking about the amazing experience we had for our big day. From start to finish, Lynn and Samantha made the wedding planning process seem pretty much effortless. They were both very responsive towards our questions and maintained great professionalism. Lynn and Samantha were extremely attentive to our needs and kept our best interests and budget in mind. Overall, it was an amazing experience at this venue space FAME. It was definitely a night us and all of our guests will remember! Thank you to FAME, Lynn and Samantha! It was truly a pleasure. :)Sent on 01/04/2019

It was great!
We had our wedding reception at FAME in July 2019 for a wedding of about 250 guests. When we started looking for venues in NJ and Philadelphia, we really struggled to find a place that could fit a larger number of guests that was not a big banquet hall or hotel conference room. So we were super happy when we came across FAME. The venue looks fantastic and has an amazing view and from a practical standpoint is still easy to access for guests (valet and entryway that can accommodate shuttle buses). They are also able to expand and shrink the venue to fit different party sizes, with plenty of space to create a separate room for cocktail hour.Sent on 07/14/2019
In the preparation, they worked with us to design a menu and had a quarterly dinner to try out food. We were in California and weren’t able to go, but two friend of ours were able to go and had a great time tasting the food and picking their favorite items. For people who want to really get into designing a menu FAME seemed super open to incorporating different food or flourishes to your menu and because they started as catering, we go the sense that they could actually pull it off.
Our reception went off without a hitch. Grace who was our primary contact did such an amazing job grabbing us only when absolutely needed and really allowing us to enjoy the evening without any worries. We started the evening by going up on the roof for photos and from there it only got better. The food got great reviews from our guests and the staff were super professional and always seemed to be where they were needed the moment they were needed. I am so happy we went with FAME!
