Choosing the right wedding venue can be hard. Like, REALLY HARD. There seems to be a billion options and they all vary so greatly in what they offer, and more importantly- what they don’t. Even harder is walking in to do a tour, and not really knowing what to look for. That’s why I’m hoping to help you chose the right venue that will not just make your day great, but your photos too!
After 10 years working in the wedding industry, I have worked countless weddings at some of the top wedding venues in Philly. In this blog post, I will be sharing my personal experiences and insights as a photographer at each of the top 5 wedding venues in Philadelphia.
