Historic Philadelphia Wedding Venues

Soft pencil sketch venue illustrations are the centerpiece of Nicole and Stephen's invitation design. The nuptials are now postponed until August due to the pandemic, but hopefully months from now, vows will happily be exchanged at Old St. Joseph's Church in Philadelphia, the oldest Catholic church in the city, dating from 1733. We used the beautiful and historic wrought iron gates of St. Joseph's, which lead into the church courtyard, as inspiration for the rsvp card.

The celebration will continue at the Center City venue, Ballroom at the Ben, with a spacious dance floor and gorgeous architectural details. The venue is most famous for its backdrop in the Academy Award-nominated film "Silver Linings Playbook."
