Fonthill Museum

  1. Fonthill Museum - Doylestown, Pa
    The concrete castle boasts 44 rooms, 18 fireplaces and more than 200 windows of varying sizes and shapes. The museum was recently featured on A&E’s “America’s Castles."  Fonthill was also as the scene for HIM's music video And Love Said No directed by Bam Margero.
    We love Fonthill engagements in the snow

    Featuring old stone walls with an ivy-covered courtyard and a Bamboo Garden perfect for wedding photos. Provides a breathtaking setting for your intimate wedding ceremony for your quests to enjoy this charming smaller setting. Don't forget the old stone bridge to private gardens. We loved this setting for Stephanie & Shawn's candlelight wedding took place here!
  3. Grounds for Sculpture - Hamilton, NJ
    250 contemporary sculptures and a perfect backdrop for a wedding.  Like Old Mill, this venue includes  We fell in love with this space at our engagement session for Karly & Steve.
  4. Phoenixville Foundry - Phoenixville, Pa
    On the site of Phoenix Iron & Steel Company this site is perfect for Steampunk Weddings.  This venue has giant pieces of steel, giant gears and mixes the old and the new perfectly.  And don't forget the 60' high ceiling.  Caroline & Rob's wedding reception was hosted here.
  5. Stotesbury Mansion - Center City Philadelphia
    You can't get anymore historic than this wedding venue.  The Stotebury Mansion's ballroom took 500 craftsmen over a year to reassemble the ballroom in the townhouse.  They imported the crystal Louis XV period chandeliers, the 14th Century Italian marble fireplace, the gold ceiling panels, the Beauvais tapestry that represented abundance hung from the Italian fireplace, and the marble Corinthian columns.
    In fact, they even managed to keep Dolly Madison's fireplace when First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy tried to negotiate for its purchase in 1961 when she was renovating the White House.
    Mark & Alice's Wedding Reception + All of our 20s Flapper Photos were taken here.
