  Outdoor ceremonies, rustic ballrooms and refurbished historic sites?! It seems that finding a venue with unique characteristics like these has recently grown to become a very popular trend among couples searching for wedding locations. Being a city with a large population of young couples, Philadelphia and the surrounding areas have always had a wealth of new, modern venues representing cutting edge beauty, but as the years move forward, it seems that many venue trends have moved backward in time! From barns and farm houses to water plant facilities and mansions, more and more historic buildings and sites in the tri-state area are being restored and renovated to create beautiful rustic wedding and event venues. Since their establishment in 1976, Finley catering has developed a rich and reputable history in Philadelphia as one of the top catering companies of the area. As a part of their growth and expansion through...

Unique Rustic Venues
2015 brought with it some definitive trends related to the wedding world as we know it. This past year was a busy one, and we found that our bands had performed at some unique venues, at which we never performed before. It is exciting that the luxury wedding business continues to grow, offering our clients more and more choice. At the same time, we understand just how overwhelming it can be, as we are often asked for advice on unique wedding venues in the Philadelphia area, as well as the outlying rural areas. We have seen quite a bit over the last year, and thought we would share this here. Rustic Country Perhaps the most obvious trend is toward rustic venues, both within the city and the much less urban country setting. Here are some unique, rustic venues at which our bands have performed, and that we found delivered excellent...

Winter Weddings Rock! Winter weddings are near and dear to my heart! Matter of fact, I’m here because my parents were brave enough to have one. And, if I had the chance to do it all again, I’d trade my summer wedding to say my “I do’s” in winter too. If your wedding is this winter, BRAVO! You are a real trailblazer and a pretty smart cookie! For those couples still in the “date debate,” follow their lead, and give winter a look. This underrated and seriously misunderstood season is worthy of your consideration and here’s why: Availability and Affordability With the relative lack of competition, winter weddings get the pick of venues, vendors and pricing (YES, almost everything is negotiable come winter in these parts). Vendors tend to work harder and give more because business is slow, and they simply have more time and incentive to serve you. Little...

The invitation is a part of your wedding that needs to be thought of in high regard. After all, for some of your guests it is the first time they find out that you are getting married. The invitation not only informs guests of “who, what, where and when” but it also informs people if it is going to be a formal, or semi formal affair just by looking at the style of your invitation. Carolyn Brandhurst of The Papery in the Midtown Village part of center city Philadelphia suggests invitations can be as individual or generic as you please. If you’re wondering where to start in order to make your wedding invitations unique, Carolyn and I have put together a list for you that covers it all. What to Expect: Upon entering a design studio like The Papery, you will generally see a wall of books. This might be...
