10/10 highly recommend!!
Megan and Melissa are absolute rock stars!! We switched venues about 45 days before our wedding and they worked so hard for us! I like to say they helped us plan 3.5 weddings because of the constant changes made with COVID restrictions. They were kind, caring, hard-working, detail- oriented and efficient. They knew what to do, when to do it and how to do it! We could not be more thankful to the two of them for helping our day go off without a hitch!! We had the most perfect day and it was all thanks to them!!Sent on 08/10/2020

The Pennsylvanian was absolutely gorgeous for my daughter's wedding. We did have to get all the vendors in order for this evening to happen but it was well worth it! The cocktail hour was held outside and the main event was held inside. We had up lighting on all of the columns and added limited curtains around the room. The dance floor was immense! It was a wonderful evening!Sent on 07/03/2017

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!!Sent on 08/19/2015
