31 OctEditor’s Choice Award: The Kimmel Center!


The latest Philly Weddings Editor’s Choice Award goes to the Kimmel Center! The Kimmel Center is regularly used as a performing arts center, but doubles as a beautiful wedding venue. Right in the heart of Philadelphia, couples can enjoy views of City Hall, which make for great photo opportunities. Inside, the Kimmel Center’s soaring glass atrium will make your wedding picture perfect.

Along with the beautiful venue, Garces Group exclusively caters at the center. We spoke to Gina Rio, the Wedding Sales and Marketing Manager for Garces Group for more insight on the Kimmel Center. Gina tells, “Kimmel Center is an architectural masterpiece centered in Philadelphia’s Avenue of the Arts. Couples say ‘I do’ under Hamilton Garden’s soaring glass atrium which features floor-to-ceiling windows and stunning views of the iconic vaulted glass arch.” Guests enjoy classic cocktails and delicious bites by Garces Events in The Lounge and outdoor Balcony overlooking City Hall.

The Kimmel Center stands apart from other wedding venues because of its unique features, like the atrium. However, the Kimmel Center is perfect for weddings because of its neutral colors as well. Gina advises that “Neutral décor and a color scheme that is pleasing to the eye will allow couples to bring their personal aesthetic to the wedding. No one wants to compete with bold carpets or busy wallpaper!” The Kimmel Center is unique yet customizable for any type of couple. 

Since the venue is so customizable, Gina has seen many different wedding styles. Recently, she has seen couples use mixed media and different textures used in decor. Softer features such as feathery grass and lightweight linens can be used to accentuate the modern aesthetic of Hamilton Garden.
