Weekend Recap: Wedding Venue, Take 1

I hope that, wherever you were this weekend, it was as beautiful and temperate as it was in Philadelphia over the past two days. Adam and I decided to take advantage of the wonderful weather and start scouting locations for our wedding. The first place on our growing list is one of the many historic homes that are part of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, Lemon Hill.

Lemon Hill sits atop a hill along the Schuykill River and provides a spectacular view of the Philadelphia Art Museum and, just behind the museum, Center City. It was a pleasure to tour the house, built in 1800, by Robert Morris, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and its grounds on Saturday afternoon.

I managed to snap a few pictures during our tour...what do you think?

The view towards Philadelphia from the rear veranda (how gracious sounding, no?):

The rear of the house, from the lawn:

Lemon Hill is definitely a contender. We have more places to see during the coming weekends, and I think we're both really excited about the planning process.

Readers, if you know Philadelphia well, are there any places Adam and I should consider if we're looking for a historic, outdoor venue?


  1. This places looks gorgeous!!! The view from the veranda is so lovely.

  2. A pretty looking Philly wedding at the Aldie Mansion:

  3. Like this but can't wait to see more!!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
