I am pleased to write this recommendation for the Philadelphia Cricket Club as an outstanding place to host a wedding. Megan Freeman and Rose Dieffenbach were incredibly attentive to every detail to ensure my daughter's wedding was a perfect day. And, it was. The venue is...

Allie, Patrick, Megan and the entire staff are to be complimented on the outstanding service, food, cooperation and overall experience we had at the Phildelphia Cricket Club for our daughter's wedding this past weekend. The food was outstanding--just as we received at our... Read More tasting which is not always the case when the banquet service actually happens---we had many, many compliments on the venue from all aspects (beauty, service, quality, etc.) If I had one suggestion , it would be that some of the carpets, especially in the cocktail rooms, need either a good cleaning or to be replaced. I also noticed some of the light fixtures haven't been cleaned in a long time. I am sure none of the guests noticed these things. Otherwise, it was perfect and met my daughter's expectations and vision. The bar selections even at the base level are very adequate. Another feature that we liked and never received at our other wedding venues(we have had 3 others) is that there is reduced cost for guests ages 12-20---since they do not get alcohol. That is nice especially if you have a lot of family members attending in that teen age group. We would highly recommend PCC--it was a great event and we had a great time.

Married at PCC on January 2, 2016. We had the club leave up Christmas decorations and the room has a soft glow when the lights come down. It was a formal wedding and the phrase I heard most people use was "old world feel." We had 150 or so in attendance and could have... Read More comfortably fit well above that amount. Megan was our point of contact and was, most importantly, highly responsive throughout the time period and transparent about everything. She also doubled as a “lite” wedding planner and helped us think through everything from interacting with and suggesting vendors (who also responded that PCC made things easy) to helping put out some little items on tables the day of. And for those thinking about the same thing, it was extremely and seamless to bus folks in from Rittenhouse.

When it came time to choose a location for our wedding, the list began and ended with the Philadelphia Cricket Club.

From day-one she handled all the logistics of planning and organizing seamlessly and efficiently!
