Will your wedding bells be ringing when the leaves are falling? Say “I do” to a Fall wedding and allowing us to provide you with a few tips, ideas and of course, notes from the Rittenhouse wedding staff.


The Dress: Fashion and bridal experts are paying attention to what brides are wearing between summer and winter and blush is making them blush (in a good way.) Two piece dresses are also showing up at the altar, right along beside modest fronts and plunging backlines.


The Venue. Fall light is some of the best, so make the most of it, whether you’re indoors or out. Our ballrooms are gorgeous and our boathouse is one of a kind. Use our grand sweeping stairwell for majestic photo opps and our tried and true vendor contact list for all Philadelphia wedding services.


Wedding Vendors: So as we mentioned above, we've been curating, tweaking, fine-tuning and testing our wedding vendors for years. Don't be the guinea pig - we only work with the most outstanding, reliable folks in the business!
