  • My husband and I booked the Arts Ballroom about 2 years before our wedding and we were blown away with their professionalism! Alaina made sure every detail of our wedding was perfect, and we had a ton of guests describe it as the best wedding they've ever been to. The quality and quantity of food provided was outstanding and the dessert room was unbelievable! We have been in and been too dozens of weddings and have never experienced the level of service we received from the Arts Ballroom. While it might not be as well known as other venues in Philadelphia - it is 100% WORTH it! Book your wedding here before the word gets out about this hidden gem :) and request Aliana!
