When you opt to host your ceremony at the Water Works, we will add an additional half hour to your already six hour affair! You will feel at ease knowing your Maître D' and Event Manager will conduct and coordinate your day-of rehearsal. Your group will enjoy the convenience of performing last minute touch ups in our beautiful bridal suite and photographs will be intimate and classic along the beautiful waterfront setting.
Your guests will be pleased when they arrive for your ceremony and are greeted by valet and escorted inside where they can enjoy a pre-ceremony champagne greeting and light refreshments. As they mingle and await entering the ceremony area, your guests will take in the unique details of your historic venue.
The Water Works offers three breathtaking ceremony locations inside the historic Engine House’s ballroom, outside under the Grand Pavilion and outside at the Gazebo off the Mill House Deck. Inside ceremonies can take advantage of the elegant, historic details while outdoor ceremonies show off the iconic landscape that makes the Water Works one of Philadelphia’s top destinations.
Make your ceremony special with our customizable set-ups, featuring chiavari chairs for each of your guests, and take advantage of our established relationships with recommended officiants, musicians and vendors who can provide special touches for your day!
