Big, bold and a little groovy! The Big Fake Wedding Philadelphia was a hit, with vendors such as Big Day Games, DiMenna Designs and NoMacarena DJ. If you’re into bright pops of colors and making a statement on your big day, this is the inspiration for you. The City Winery Philadelphia is a full service event space that is able to celebrate all of your moments from engagement parties to your wedding day with a wide variety of event spaces that can hold 50 guests to 300 guests. To add a little extra something special, you can also create your own vino label with City Winery for you and your significant other to open on your anniversary.

The Inspiration


Meet Our Feature Couple!

Doug and Amy met at Morgan’s Pier the first summer it opened. They caught each other’s gaze across the room and it was love at first sight! They danced, Amy bought Doug a PBR, and their fate was sealed. They live in East Passyunk in a home they lovingly renovated from top to bottom (mostly themselves) and you can find them cycling on the Schuylkill River Trail most weekends. Amy and Doug were married in October 2018 at the American Swedish Historical Museum in FDR Park, where they shared their love for each other, and their love for Philly, with family and friends.
