    Could not believe how incredible the venue looked!

    We loved absolutely everything about our wedding at the Constitution Center. From booking the event in winter of 2019 through our wedding day in June 2021, Marcy and Ali were incredible to work with. They helped us every step of the way from postponing to rescheduling. On the day itself, the organization of Marcy and her team was impressive and impeccable. The space looked amazing and our guests kept saying how impressed they were with the venue.

    Cooperative, went above and beyond, accommodating, friendly, helpful

    I could not be more pleased with how professional, accommodating, and friendly Ali (Constitution Center) and Carol (Brûlée) were through the process of planning my wedding. They certainly made the planning process easy and Ali, Rose, and Carol were definitely my ‘go-to’ girls throughout the process and especially the night of the wedding.
    Additionally, we had to make several trips to the venue during the process (making payments, tasting, looking at the space) and they were very quick to respond and to work with us to find times that worked.
    We received so many compliments from our guests on the space, excellent service, lighting, and food and I couldn’t have been happier with choosing the Constitution Center for our wedding!

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.
