The College of Physicians is stunning! We looked at 8 other venues in Philadelphia Center City area before seeing this building. As soon as we toured it and met with the events manager, Liz, we instantly knew this was the place for us. We held our ceremony upstairs in Ashhurst Hall, the cocktail hour downstairs in Thomson Gallery which flowed into the Veranda & Medicinal Garden, and the reception upstairs in Mitchell Hall. The whole building has a magnificence to it. It’s not pretentious though, just dignified and beautiful. It’s a truly unique space that you and your guests won’t forget! -Sam

I cannot recommend this venue enough. If you want a fairy tale wedding, this place will make your dream a reality. Whether you want a classic, traditional ceremony/reception or an enchanting Victorian wedding with vegan catering on a budget, look no further.

I'm nearly three weeks out from my wedding at the College of Physicians through Catering By Design, and I still can't believe how amazing it was. The staff that helped us prepare for the big day were amazing, as were the staff on hand the day-of. Liz was our go-to contact person at the College after Diana got us set up. Liz was amazing--I am a nervous and meticulous planner that obsesses over minute details. Liz was there to answer every question and concern I had promptly, while also giving her advice and suggestions along the way. This was especially important for my wife and I as we planned the entire wedding while living in a completely different part of the country. In the end, this meant that during the wedding itself, my wife and I were care-free as everything went perfectly as planned. Catering By Design at the College is a well oiled machine--everything was taken care of and we enjoyed the day immensely. The venue at the College was everything we had hoped for. Luckily the weather was perfect so we had our ceremony outdoors. Yet we would not have been worried if it was too hot or if it was raining, as one of the reasons why we chose the College in the first place was because their indoor ceremony space is just as beautiful as their outdoor garden. The ballroom for the reception was grand and made for the perfect setting for our party. As for the food? Amazing. The cocktail hour food was delicious (CBD delivered our food to the bridal suite while our guests enjoyed downstairs). For dinner, we went with three stations: Mashed potato bar, tuscan grille, and a Taco Bar. We were not surprised by how great the food was, as we had gone to a tasting 8 months before the actual wedding date. The cake was super yummy too. Overall, having our wedding at the College with CBD was a great experience, and we are so happy we trusted the staff at the College and at Catering by Design with producing one of the most important event of our lives.

We both want to give a big THANKS! for all the amazing work you and your excellent staff did for Rachel’s Bat Mitzvah. From working with us on the menu to coordinating the various rentals, you were always a pleasure to work with. To top it all off, the food was absolutely amazing! All our guests are still raving about the food and quality of the service.

Wonderful experience! Highly recommend! This historic and regal venue includes the full 2 story building and a private garden! This was perfect because rain or shine for our May wedding, we knew we would be married in a beautiful space. We worked with Diana Airoldi from Catering by Design throughout the planning process and she was there on the big day to ensure everything went smoothly. Diana was wonderful to with - always pleasant, professional, and organized. It's important to note that we don't live in Philly and planned most of the wedding remotely (via email and over the phone) and it worked out great! During the wedding, my bridal attendant Tracy was fabulous! I dubbed Tracy and Diana the "Ninjas" because any time I needed them during the event for anything at all, there they were, ready to help and anticipating my every need. Our guests raved about the delicious food, craft old-timey cocktails, and quality service. 5 stars! Catering by Design knows how to throw a fabulous party!!

The College of Physicians was a great place to have our wedding. It is a very unique space and your guests will be sure to have a good time. Diana was very responsive to all of my emails and answered all of my questions quickly. They were very flexible when I wanted to change the whole seating plan at the last minute. They are very accommodating and professional and I trusted that everything was going to go smoothly, which it did, thanks to Diana and everyone at the College of Physicians and Catering by Design. They also worked seamlessly with our DJ and Photographer to make sure everything went off without a hitch.

We had such an amazing experience with the College! They helped everything fall into place perfectly! They were helpful, considerate and flexible and I would highly recommend them. The food provided by Catering By Design (their caterer) was inventive and delicious. Diana, our liaison, was a joy to work with and helped organize everything. Highly recommend.

It was wonderful!!! Venue - 5 Stars The beauty and history of the building combined to create the perfect venue that Tara wanted. It shined in its own natural beauty. Each space held a new adventure for our guests and they loved it! Staff - 5 Stars They were attentive, helpful and kind. I received several compliments regarding the bartender upstairs at the Reception. She remembered guests drink order and had it ready as they reached her! She was excellent! Food - 5 Stars Our guests enjoyed having several options and most tried every station! No complaints, only compliments from our guests. Reception - 5 Stars The open seating and food stations were a hit! Centerpieces - assembled perfectly! The table linens were beautiful in the space. The pin-tucked gray added just enough shine to compliment the fairy lights. Last but not least, Diana of CBD Events was magnificent! She was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Our wedding truly was perfect!

Wonderful staff who will work to respond to your requests. Good communication. Very professional and responsible. Our guests loved the food, the decor and the overall experience. If given very clear requests and pictures of what is wanted, their team can create lovely specialized spaces. Very accommodating of dietary issues for guests - really went above and beyond the usual places in this area and made the event safe for guests with allergies/ dietary needs and welcoming. I have had poor experiences with fancy hotels with catering services who just could not do what Catering by Design does at the college in the food department for upscale food more in line with Philadelphia's current food climate. Does not feel corporate- in that bad way- but feels like a good restaurant you hired to do your event. Good for foodies. Florist team at Garnish works hard and is very responsive to requests - pictures are good and trials of flowers and table looks are good. Diana Airoldi, the coordinator working with Catering by Design inside the College is fabulous. Highly professional, does not get flustered and takes care of details and is very responsive. It was a pleasure to work with her. The College of Physicians setting itself is special and unique. It has an elegance of the by gone victorian era which can be played up either to the elegant victorian side or towards an off beat retro victorian vibe so popular now in many style genres. Having the Mutter museum gallery open to the guests for a time during the event added another dimension to the event for guests and they thoroughly enjoyed it. We had glowing comments from our guests for weeks after our daughter's wedding at the college. Hers was off-beat but elegant, done very well and the staff helped to make a wedding that will be positively remembered for a long time. The price point for what you get is excellent. Not a cookie cutting place.We would definitely do it all over again if we had a chance to go back in time.

The Mutter Museum was the perfect venue for our wedding. The physical space was amazing and the upstairs library and great room are amazing. This space is one of Philadelphia's best kept secrets. Catering By Design is the in-house event team for catering, and they are amazing to work with. If you book through the College of Physicians, you'll rent the space and also pay for alcohol through the College and then all of the catering services are through Catering By Design.
