The Kimmel Center for The Performing Arts
When it comes to elegance and sophistication, the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia is one of a kind. The venue understands that your wedding should be an unforgettable performance as well – from start to finish! From traditional architecture with modern charm, beautiful views of Philly’s skyline or historic streets surrounding you, this place has everything necessary to make any event memorable.
Looking back, the Kimmel Center began in 1996 as a fusion of two Philadelphia projects. The Philadelphia Orchestra had an ongoing plan to build their own establishment. While Mayor Edward G. Rendell wanted a venue for performing arts companies and touring artists alike. Because of this, a merger was negotiated under Regional Performing Arts Center with both parties agreeing that it would be better if one center could provide what they needed. Today, the decision is paying off, as weddings have been hosted by the Kimmel Center too since 2001!
Moreover, couples who want an unforgettable event should consider this diverse venue. The Academy of Music Ballroom features hand-gilded walls, twinkling chandeliers and decorative backdrops. Your guests will surely be blown away by its beauty! Also, if you’re looking for a more intimate setting, then head to their Hamilton Rooftop Garden. As it offers hardwood maple floors overlooking Philadelphia’s skyline from 6200 square feet worth of space. Additionally, the Commonwealth Plaza is a multi-tiered, awe inspiring lobby that can accommodate up to thousands of guests. For something totally unique and unlike anything else in town, the Perelman Theater can be used for your cocktail reception and dinner event with seats and stage adjusted accordingly.
