    Beautiful Unique Venue With Amazing Staff!

    My husband and I were really sold on National Constitution Center for our wedding venue from the moment we requested information and it only got better from there. We were looking for an elegant yet unique wedding venue that really brought our love for Philly to our guests and had dedicated, organized staff who would help us plan out our day. National Constitution Center was all that and more! Ali and all of the staff were amazing to work with! They kept everything organized and helped us think through questions that I hadn't even anticipated. Ali had an excellent plan for the day, which my husband and I loved, but was able to be completely flexible when a few things changed in the last 48 hours before the wedding. She answered emails right away and was always willing to jump on the phone to talk about anything. My mom and I especially appreciated the group planning meeting a month before the wedding day to get organized and iron out the last details. On the actual day of the wedding, our guests enjoyed views of Old City, an amazing dinner and the unique aspects of the museum as a wedding venue, like being able to walk around signer's hall! Guests are still telling us what a cool venue it was and how they felt taken care of by the staff. If you love Philly, history, amazing food, beautiful yet unique venues and/or staff who will do whatever it takes to make your wedding day great this is the perfect fit! I would highly recommend the National Constitution Center to anyone for their wedding!

  • BVTLive Bands Wedding Bands

    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!

  • Amie Schroeder Photography & Cinema Wedding Photographers

    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.
