Wedding Portraits at Water Works

Glamorous and Grand Weddings at the Water Works | New Jersey Wedding Photography

It seems only fitting that inside the City of Love sits one of the most unique and fantastic wedding venues. A bit like something out of a fairytale, and once praised for its “pleasant design” by Charles Dickens, the Water Works is a National Historic Landmark that offers couples the choice of several amazing sites within the venue to bring the vision for their wedding to life. Neoclassical architecture sets an ethereal tone, and its design is a romantic pairing of nature and modern technology.

The Engine House is a slice of historical elegance in classic Philadelphia style. The hardwood floor stretches out beneath its original crystal chandelier while simple details warm the room making it ideal to host an indoor ceremony. Complete with a tented Veranda for hosting the cocktail hour that overlooks the river, friends, and family can enjoy the breathtaking view of Boathouse Row and the Center City skyline. The Engine House features chef-attended interactive stations, a raw bar, a food library, and a full-service bar. The ballroom can also host a cocktail hour.

Couples who wish to have an outdoor ceremony can choose between the Grand Pavilion or the Gazebo. Standing over the Schuylkill River in grand, Neoclassic style with columns framing the space, the Grand Pavilion is a picturesque setting to say “I do.” A columned walkway leads out to the Gazebo off of the Mill House Deck. Surrounded by meticulously kept grounds and eye-catching architecture, the vintage Gazebo is classic and sophisticated.

The Mill House is a versatile space able to comfortably and elegantly host your ceremony or reception. Neoclassic columns frame the space which rises above the Schuylkilll River flowing over the Fairmount Dam. Steeped in historical design and air of romance, the Mill House provides guests with outstanding views of the city and the ability to dance the night away under a starry sky. Situated on the Mill House Deck, the tenting can be custom designed with twinkle lights, flowers, or handing chandeliers allowing the space to be as unique as your wedding day vision. The Mill House Dock is a magical place for creating candid and formal wedding portraiture, and I love taking advantage of the historical architecture and spectacular views.

An award-winning culinary team will create a custom menu to please even the pickiest foodie among your guests. As Philadelphia’s Premier Wedding Brand, a Cescaphe wedding is one planned with precision and executed in flawless style. Their wedding packages are all-inclusive, which means teams of planning professionals are on-hand to ensure the day unfolds beautifully and stress-free. I appreciate their attention to detail and love taking advantage of utilizing all the venues for creating fine wedding portraiture as they only host one private event on the day. A wedding at Water Work is a unique, one-of-kind affair that will leave friends and family talking about it for years to come.
