The National Constitution Center is a great venue for a wedding, as well as other events. We are proud that our band, Jellyroll, performed at the opening gala on July 3, 2004, and along with our other BVTLive bands, have been performing often ever since. The staff is amazing, as is the staff of Brulee Catering (exclusive caterer) and the views are like none other!
Working at the National Constitution Center is always a treat. Everyone is so helpful and professional. The venue is beautiful, and the catering is, hands down, some of the best in the city.
