Venue Information

You can save yourself a lot of time, money and potential stress by staying around the Water Works grounds to create your Bride/Groom and Bridal Party images. Philadelphia is a very photogenic city and I love traveling around the city on a wedding day to different locations. However, if your timeline doesn’t appear to provide you with enough time to hit some of the popular Philly spots, don’t fear utilizing the Water Works area! You can easily achieve many different looks in this area with its architecture, city views, trees and even some edgier looks just down the road.

Stacey and Patrick designed their amazing Tendenza Wedding by taking standard traditions and making them their own!
