The Neighborhood House
When we say we are Down for Whatever, we really mean it!
Jimmy and Erin were an amazing couple to work with and we couldn’t believe their vision at first. A black tie reception with pizza? Are you kidding?!
Erin and Jimmy’s day started at Hotel Monaco- known for its unique interior decor and nestled in Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood, it was anything but plain. Their first look was staged on the gorgeous steps of Second Bank of the United States building and followed with bridal party pictures in Signer’s Garden right across the street from Hotel Monaco.
From there we boarded a bus and headed to The Neighborhood House, known for its indoor basket ball court turned performance venue on the historic Christ Church campus.
Their ceremony was housed in the Neighborhood House’s bright and airy Great Hall which allowed for a modern and simplistic ceremony led by a well-known law professor. From their unplugged ceremony- guests headed upstairs and were greeted by bandleader Jimmy from The Big House Band for cocktail hour and we headed right into reception.
It was amazing- Happy smiles all around when Manco and Manco came around with massive pizzas to act as centerpieces, Chipotle’s buffet opened in the lobby, and a spin off Chicken and Waffles from Chick-Fil-A came passed in red diner baskets from Brothers Catering. What a treat! It was paired with specialty drinks included Spiked Hot Chocolate and Hot Cider for the wintery month. We definitely can’t forget about the Rolling Rock, the fun Groom’s favorite.
Reception was nothing short of a blast! Guests loved the couples fun food ideas and were awed when Jimmy performed a guitar solo to his new wife. The night was wrapped up with Wawa hoagies and coffee To Go and -you could have guessed it- Federal Donuts right off our custom donut wall.
Immediately after their wedding they were off to New Zealand for an amazing honeymoon. We were jealous to say the least. Thank you so much Erin and Jimmy for allowing us to be a part of your big day, it was truly a pleasure!
