A stunning venue and dream team!
Our 10/19/19 wedding at The Curtis Atrium was stunning! We wanted to go with a more unique venue for our reception, and after looking at several venues throughout the city, we couldn't help but fall in love with the architectural beauty of the Atrium. We also loved the location in Old City, as it's a quick walk to several hotels and historic landmarks. Though we booked our wedding date before the renovations were complete, we had full confidence in the Constellation team and knew the space would look even better than before - and we were right! The bridal suite was so elegant and cozy and the perfect room for us to take a quiet moment to ourselves. The mezzanine level for cocktail hour is a beautiful, open space and offers awesome views of the main Atrium space. The Atrium itself is so impressive, and can easily accommodate 200+ guests with room to spare.
Leila, Alesia and Lauren were so kind and professional, and patient! I hit them with just about every possible question I could have asked, and they were always so prompt and thorough in their replies. The food and beverages were AMAZING and we loved that Constellation was so flexible in accommodating our guests dietary needs and helping us curate dishes and cocktails that aligned with our vision for our special day. The tasting experience was also a highlight of the planning process and was so much fun!
We couldn't have asked for a better venue to celebrate the start of our next chapter as husband & wife, and are so grateful to the Curtis and Constellation team for helping us make such magical memories!Sent on 11/21/2019

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.
