Philadelphia Wedding Venue Spotlight | Morris House Hotel

Wedding

There is a secret garden of a wedding venue smack dab in Philadelphia and you would never know about it unless you were looking for it. It’s called the Morris House Hotel (home to M Restaurant) – a sweet boutique bed and breakfast built in the Revolutionary era and exudes colonial elegance.

Inside there are 15 rooms, a library, fireplaces, comfy sofas, and a superb staff.

But the real highlight is the courtyard. The courtyard garden can host a wedding that you’d never expect downtown: greenery, historic charm (226 years worth), fountains, flowers, ivy, bricks, and steps away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s absolutely perfect for the couple who wants an escape to a beautiful garden wedding but doesn’t want to leave downtown Philadelphia.

The “tent” is really just a tent by name. The ceiling is as clear as glass, giving you a great, open feeling with sights to the high rises around. I have Synergetic to thank for providing the uplighting (just wait til you see it at night!) and Beautiful Blooms for the centerpieces.

It’s an awesome space. If you end up at Morris House Hotel for your wedding; give me a call!

The heart is a plantable seed packet.They had such unique rings. It wa ...

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Morris House Hotel | Vanessa & Jeff
Vanessa and Jeff’s wedding day at the Morris House Hotel in Philadelphia was hot but stylishly beautiful.  I knew from the hotness of their Old City engagement session that this wedding would have pizazz! As always, the Morris House Hotel was delightful, it’s antique flag flying in the breeze. The ladies gathered with Vanessa in the bridal suite for hair and makeup and to keep cool.  Vanessa had seen a designer online that she simply had to see in person.  A trip to DC led her to several samples of Julie Vino.  She was looking for something with sleeves and fell for the one that she had originally pinned.  It was a fabulous silk chi ...
