Wedding Venue, The Ritz-Carlton Gets Multimillion-Dollar Renovation

Ritzy Business

Thanks To a multi-million dollar renovation, The Ritz-Carlton still reigns as one of Philly’s most jaw-dropping wedding spaces.

With its grand architecture and prime address on the Avenue of the Arts, the Ritz Carlton- Philadelphia has long reigned as one of the city’s hottest wedding venues. Now the storied property has ushered in a new era of picture-perfect portraits following a yearlong multimillion-dollar renovation.

“As the only luxury branded hotel in the city, we offer a one-of-a-kind experience for weddings,” says Bradley Pacana, director of sales and marketing. “The updated spaces create a warm environ- ment and color palette to work alongside each individual wedding vision.”

The $24 million-dollar project pays tribute to the historic aspects of the hotel, constructed in 1908. In addition to the column-filled lobby and its expanded bar and restaurant, Aqimero, guest rooms and both ballrooms have gotten a contemporary makeover as well. “Our grand chandelier and oculus allow couples a first dance under the moonlight,” notes Pacana. “It’s an experience you can’t get anywhere else.” Chef Patrick Morrison’s updated seasonal menus complement any time of year; couples (and up to six guests) have the chance to meet with the chef during a complimentary tasting. Having a large wedding? Opt to rent out the entire hotel lobby for
a cocktail reception.

As a first-anniversary gift from the hotel, couples can relive the magic with a one-night stay and dinner. That beats the traditional paper gift any day.
