    Two brides - two thumbs up!

    The College of Physicians made our wedding a 100% positive experience and did so flawlessly. Liz was on top of the planning months in advance, always helping us stay on track with flowers, catering, and day-of-details.

    As two women getting married, it was extremely important that we find a venue was prepared to make us feel safe, comfortable, and as full of love as we deserved to feel on our wedding day. We can say with confidence that the College of Physicians made that happen. Liz displayed clear experience working with same-sex couples and provided multiple"non-traditional" options for our ceremony processional. My wife and I also found that, throughout the night, not only did our family and friends come up and congratulate us, many of the College of Physicians staff came to congratulate us as well, and told how much it meant to them to see us married. These were small, incredible moments that we did not expect but experienced with joy.

    We cannot do anything but recommend the College of Physicians. Yes, the venue was organized and helpful. Yes, the ceremony and reception were beautiful. But most importantly, every person involved at every step in the process was supportive, interested, and excited for us to get married. We had the best experience we could have dreamed of.

    The College of Physicians is stunning! We looked at 8 other venues in Philadelphia Center City area before seeing this building. As soon as we toured it and met with the events manager, Liz, we instantly knew this was the place for us.

    We held our ceremony upstairs in Ashhurst Hall, the cocktail hour downstairs in Thomson Gallery which flowed into the Veranda & Medicinal Garden, and the reception upstairs in Mitchell Hall. The whole building has a magnificence to it. It’s not pretentious though, just dignified and beautiful.

    It’s a truly unique space that you and your guests won’t forget!

    -Sam
