As a freelance planner myself, when it came time to plan my own wedding I was looking for someplace completely unique that would showcase the city of Philadelphia, wow our guests and be able to handle my OCD organizational style! My fiance, family and I found all that and more with The Top of the Tower. Over the course of our year of planning there was some staff turnover and we worked with several people to put the event together, but ultimately we spent the most time with Vanessa, Andrew and Lou. We feared some of our MANY details would be lost in the transitions, but the staff was completely accommodating and the entire event went off without a hitch. The views from the 51st floor are breathtaking, the unique layout of the space allows guests to move around more freely than in a single ballroom. And the food - the FOOD! Months later, our guests are still commenting on the food, from the appetizers to the chocolate fountain - there was so much, and it was all so good. I'm still dreaming about the pad Thai! Another huge plus is the venue's BYO policy, which allowed us to tailor our beverages to our crowd, and helped keep costs down. In the end, the TOT staff delivered on everything we asked for, and a detail-obsessed wedding planner/bride got her perfect wedding. My other vendors remarked on how much they enjoyed working there as well. I would recommend the TOT to anyone looking for an upscale city wedding in a completely unique and ultimately affordable space.
