    The Pennsylvanian was our daughters dream venue for her wedding reception! It is an amazing beautiful venue! Bob the leasing manager was great to work with. We used Rania's catering and it was outstanding!! We received so many compliments! The rotunda and concourse is truly breathtaking once it is transformed by all the vendors!! Our guests are still talking about how breathtaking the venue and entire reception was! If you want a reception fit for a princess then this is the venue for you!!

    Beautiful wedding reception venue!

    The Pennsylvanian is an absolutely beautiful wedding reception venue! The architecture is unlike any other venue, and the outside rotunda is to die for! The staff at the Pennsylvanian was extremely easy and fun to work with and our wedding would not have been what it was without the help of the 2 wedding coordinators! They went above and beyond to make our wedding so special and we are extremely happy with our decision to have our reception at the Pennsylvanian!
