Once in a lifetime experience
When we walked into AmRev for the first time, we knew we wanted to get married there. Tori and the team made our wedding experience fantastic from the planning stages to the actual wedding. Tori was flexible, open to our ideas and let us create the day we wanted from food stations, getting married in front of the beautiful staircase and utilizing the screen in the reception room for a short video. We feel that the flexibility made our experience special from other more "corporate" venues and museums in the area. The wedding was flawless and the entire team (Brulee catering, Jason - catering captain, Jessica - wedding attendant and security) was friendly and attentive to our guests. We received so many compliments on the food (from cheese steaks and hoagies to our ice cream station), the charming and intimate venue and the ability to walk through the exhibits during the cocktail hour. Everyone told us they felt like it was a VIP experience. If we had to do it again, we would make the same decision.Sent on 01/04/2020

Amazing Experience - Definitely recommend!
The Museum was an incredibly beautiful, classy, and FUN venue for our wedding - my husband and I are history nerds and absolutely loved being able to have our special day in such a meaningful place. It was especially nice to have the exhibits open to our guests during cocktail hour!Sent on 10/23/2019

Fantastic Wedding Experience!
Beautiful, modern facilities that fit right in with historic Philadelphia. Tori and Brûlée catering were superb to work with - always responsive, great suggestions, able to accommodate various special dietary needs with no problem. Our guests all commented on how delicious the food was, and what a great job the entire staff did “day of” to keep everything on time, guests well cared for, and an amazing day for the bride and groom. Can’t say enough about how great they were to work with!Sent on 09/16/2019
