We are still on cloud nine from our day and are so happy we chose the Curtis Atrium as our reception venue. The space itself is stunning, and paired with the experience and professionalism of the Constellation team, we were in good hands from the start.Sent on 10/02/2019
We considered and toured quite a few venues in and around Philadelphia looking for a large space that could accommodate 200+ guests with lots of room for dancing. Knowing we wanted to get married in the summer, we were originally looking at outdoor tented venues but decided against it in case of rain or uncomfortable heat. The Atrium is beautifully sunlit with its glass ceiling, and with the greenery around the fountain, we felt like it was the perfect mix of outdoors brought in. We also knew we wouldn’t have to do too much in terms of decor -- you could add nothing to the space and it’d still be gorgeous. Even better is the location. It’s right alongside Independence Hall and across from Washington Square Park which was perfect for photos. There’s also a parking garage in the building and several great hotels within a short walking distance, making it easy to accommodate all the guests.
During the planning months, Leila, Lauren, and Gail from Constellation were always available to answer any questions we had – and we had a lot! We were the first wedding since the space was renovated and reopened under Constellation, and the team went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable each step of the way. All of our requests and needs were accommodated, and they also referred us to some excellent vendors which helped to bring the weekend together beautifully.
On the day of the wedding, the flow was absolutely seamless. The Constellation staff was a team of true professionals. Esther made sure we had some hors d'oeuvres and drinks in the bridal suite and would check in with us throughout the reception for anything we might need - we felt so honored to have such kind and personable people with us throughout the night. The food was incredible - we heard lots of comments about how it was the best wedding food guests ever had.
All in all, we could not have imagined a better team or venue.
We would love to be a part of your celebration! For our opening year good from now until the end of December 2020 we are offering a fabulous plated dinner menu for you at $185 per person. Please reach out for more details!
