The Brossman Center is a great place to have a wedding ceremony and reception! I love the fact that I was able to have my wedding ceremony in a church and remain onsite for the reception. I even had my wedding pictures taken at the Brossman center. The campus has a lot of tall trees, beautiful plants and flowers, and buildings that capture both a traditional and contemporary atmosphere and scenery.

The décor and set-up of the reception hall was gorgeous! The Brossman center was able to provide an array of décor options (such as drapery & lighting) to capture the vision of my wedding. Also, the food was EXCELLENT! It was catered by the Brossman center’s exclusive catering company called Cricket Catering. The food tasting was fun and quite tasty, and my husband and I really enjoyed the food prepared for our wedding day. Overall Cricket catering had a great selection of appetizers and entrées, and they were able to customize a menu of tasty foods for our vegan and vegetarian guests.

Last but not least, Rita Faison (the main contact person for the Brossman Center) is the BEST! She is very pleasant, helpful, professional, and warm spirited. She made my husband and I feel very welcomed at the brossman center. Also, Rita is flexible and very responsive to emails and phone calls, and I looooove her positive energy. Overall Rita was very calm and focused throughout the entire day of our wedding which help create a peace of mind and the opportunity to relax and enjoy the best day of our lives.

The Brossman Center is truly an amazing wedding venue and a “hidden gem” in the Philadelphia area. For any future brides looking for a venue, I would highly recommend the Brossman Center!! It’s definitey a place to consider.

I don't even know where to begin! Discovering The Brossman Center and working with Rita was an absolute blessing! This venue is absolutely beautiful-- from the stained glass windows, piped organ, and beautiful word works in the chapel, to the the modern reception space! Rita worked with our schedule, ideas, and made so many great vendor referrals for us! She was courteous, professional, honest, patients and very helpful to us--she was an absolute blessing. I look back at my wedding planning experience and one of the things I miss most is working with her and coming up with great ideas about how to use the space and how to make our special day one to remember! All in all, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Rita, we could not have been blessed with a better venue, experience, or Venue Coordinator. It was simply amazing!

I fell in love with this venue the first time I walked into the chapel. It is absolutely beautiful and I couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. The Brossman Center is a gem hidden in Chestnut Hill and I highly recommend it to any Philadelphia area bride looking for a beautiful, affordable place to hold a ceremony and reception. Rita is really nice and accomodating and I enjoyed working with her.

We were THRILLED to find the Brossman Center after searching and searching for a venue that had a beautiful atmosphere! It sits right in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia and has PLENTY of off-street parking (lots), something difficult to find in the city! The Chapel is gorgeous, and the grounds are great for photos! The Brossman Center was big enough to hold all our guests and Rita does a great job of suggesting different layouts for furniture, depending on the type of reception/guest list you have! Another key for us was the variety of vendors on their catering list. While it is an exclusive catering list, they have a wonderful price range that could meet any bride and grooms desire!

A very unique and wonderful venue located at the bottom of Chesnut hill. It is a hidden jewel of a venue with a traditional church (you can bring in any officiant, any religion), beautiful grounds, and a brand new LARGE reception space. You can also bring in your own caterer which was great for us. There was lots of parking for the guests and everything was on the same site (within walking distance). The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were far enough apart from each other that it still felt separate

The Brossman Center at the Lutheran Theological Seminary is a perfect venue for your perfect day. I loved the location and the beautiful grounds. The Chapel was gorgeous, you can save money on pew bows and excessive use of flowers in the Chapel. They even offer overnight accomodations, which was a wonderful experience for my bridesmaids and I.
I would recommend to any bride & groom.

I visited Brossman Center today and it was quite amazing! It's a huge facility with services to meet every budget and accommodation. Rita Faison is very passionate about making sure that her clients are well taken care of from the event to lodging, all at affordable prices. The chapel is lovely and is flexible as to the seating which I thought was quite unique. It can be set up like pews or more intimate in the round. The grounds are gorgeous and you can have your cocktails or event outside in their numerous patios and courtyards.

You should check out this location for your event. It's private, intimate and perfect for your event!

Recently used the Brossman Center at the Lutheran Theological Seminary for our wedding. The campus, chapel and Brossman center were all perfect for our event that had 140 people in attendance. The staff was friendly and the site coordinator, Rita was great. She worked with us throughout the planning process. We were very satisfied with our service. I would definitely recommend this site.

I really enjoyed doing my wedding and reception at the Brossman Center. The chapel is beautiful but very hot. To hold on to the originality of the chapel there is no AC but I think it's important to find an alternative to the industrial fan. During the planning the communication was at times difficult between Ms. Faison and I buthink she was very accommodatinice when necessary.

My wedding was on 8-14-2010 and the day thought would be perfect, I was the perfect bride, I was not this hard to please bride, but I see where it got me. I used the Brossman Center because it is a beautiful place the Chapel just stole my heart, I think I was more concern with the cermony than the reception. The Ceremony was beautiful. The reception was not at all what I had hoped for or invision. The staff at the Brossman Center I found to be very inconsiderate. In the beginning the staff was great but as the time wined down it just got really hard to please these people, they were not flexiable at all, as you may think when you veiw pictures in there advertisments. They really didnt allow any decor. I just really wish I had choosen somewhere eles to have my reception. The staff was a total turn off for me.
