    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. :)

    Just had my daughter’s wedding at Fame, a fabulous new venue in North Kensington art district. Could not have asked for better service, nicer people to deal with and a really beautiful and cool space. Everything was perfect!! Lynn and Skip went above and beyond to accommodate us. An amazing venue.
