An Elegant Philly Ballroom at the Ben Wedding

Gabi & Scott’s Philadelphia wedding took place at the Ballroom at the Ben by Finley Catering. The couple got ready at a local hotel before making their way to their first look. Gabi absolutely stunned in her glamourous Berta wedding gown. Portraits took place at The Merchants Exchange Building, which is located in the historic district of Philadelphia, near Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and other landmarks. It’s perfect for wedding day portraits as it features marble architecture and stone walkways which reflect light perfectly, at all times throughout the day.

Later, the ceremony and reception took place at The Ballroom at the Ben. This luxurious venue for weddings is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, inside the historical hotel “The Ben”. It is the perfect location for couples who are looking for a grand and elegant wedding. This venue boasts stunning architecture, including high ceilings, grand chandeliers, and marble floors. The space came to life with romantic candles and countless florals by Fabufloras Design. It was so much fun capturing this beautiful couple’s wedding day. G&S, thank you for having us!
