Say “I Do” in Beautiful Historic Philadelphia

Here at The Residences at Dockside, we’re so lucky to live where we do – for so many reasons. When you live in a city as old as Philadelphia, there’s definitely no shortage of breathtaking, and beautiful, places to get married. There are endless classic options like City Hall and the Fairmount Park Horticultural Center…but, have you ever considered saying “I do” in an old prison? Philly has all of the options – wether you’re looking for a venue that’s more traditional, or if you’d like something a little different, something that’s off the beaten path.
