My fiancé and I researched a lot of venues because we wanted a specific look. From the pictures, I had a feeling this was what we were looking for. Once we toured the venue in person, it all just clicked and we knew this is exactly what we were looking for. All of the information that is given explains everything in detail. Everyone I’ve communicated with has been very responsive and friendly. I am looking forward to more planning and honestly can’t wait for our wedding day!Sent on 12/14/2019

Amazing experience with Front & Palmer
We had the best ever experience with Front & Palmer for our wedding on 11/22/19. It was the only wedding venue that we looked at because we fell in love with it...and it was the best decision that we could have made. Lini was an absolute dream to work with - she is organized, on top of EVERYTHING, and extremely collaborative. She really helped us bring our vision to life and make our experience totally seamless. We had a church ceremony at Old St. Joe's in Old City and then bused our guests to F&P on Friday evening. I felt totally confident that everything set to happen at the venue would go off without a hitch based on Lini's expert planning and coordination. Every other vendor we worked with had only amazing things to say about her and the venue, and they could not have been more right.Sent on 12/03/2019
In terms of the venue itself, it is absolutely beautiful and can be transformed into whatever your vision is. The food is incredible and the guest experience is second to none.
To any Philly couples looking for a "WOW" wedding, just go to F&P. It is incredible and you will be as thrilled as we were.

LOVE Front & Palmer!
I had seen pictures of Front & Palmer before I was engaged but pictures do not do this place justice. It is absolutely beautiful inside. We knew it was the place for us after we took a tour a few weeks after getting engaged. The wedding planing process can be extremely stressful but I swear Lini of F&P could run the world. She is amazing! From the first time we met her I knew our day would go smoothly- and it was absolutely perfect. The service was impeccable and the food was DELICIOUS! Our guests raved about the food. I can't thank the staff of Front & Palmer/Feast Your Eyes Catering enough for making our wedding day amazing. This place is definitely for the couples who want a stress free day and a wedding in a really cool and beautiful venue!Sent on 10/06/2019
