Perfect for intimate and medium sized weddings. Doug was great to work with. The venue is one of the prettiest historic settings in the city.

Beautiful Venue, Amazing Staff!!! :)

Last month, my husband and I had our reception at the Stotesbury. Jessica, Lexi, and team did an awesome job! They made it look so easy!! They definitely performed at a level that surpassed our expectations. Jessica helped us to prep us for our big day and Lexi made every effort to be by our side on our wedding night to ensure that we had the best time. Everything was perfect. Our guests are still talking about it! #FiveStarsPlus!

The space was absolutely stunning! It was exactly what we wanted for our intimate Philadelphia wedding. We covered the place in candles and it was the most beautiful place we had ever seen. There is plenty of charm, history, and it needs little decoration or adornment to look phenomenal. They also work with a great team at Feastivities that makes everything so seamless and easy.
