  • 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.

  • 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... Read more

  • 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.

  • If you have the opportunity to have your wedding at the College of Physicians--do it. Not only do you get your choice of several great ceremony locations within one building, your guests can enjoy the Mütter Museum during cocktail hour. The CPP is an incredible historic venue, and is an architectural gem. Every space is a place for an incredible photograph.

  • Diana, Dan, Liz and their entire team were incredible to work with. We had a non-traditional wedding and they helped make all of our visions come to life. They were laid back but helped us to reign in our ideas and helped us to keep our focus where we wanted it to be- us, our family and friends under one roof celebrating this happy occasion! They also let us have our dog in our ceremony which was so precious and meaningful to us (especially my husband who has had him for 8 years!). Another HUGE compliment to their entire staff was how they took care of our 90+ year old Great Aunt. She said she was taken care of like a queen and we couldn’t be more grateful for that! Can't say enough good about this group of individuals, they made our dream wedding come to life!

  • The College of Physicians is definitely worth considering! Diana and the rest of the staff were incredible and made our big day absolutely amazing. Our wedding turned out to be on what I think was the hottest weekend of the year (heat index over 100 degrees in the evening) so we moved our ceremony from the garden to the upstairs hall and Diana and the florists at Catering by Design (the in house catering/decor group) made it absolutely stunning - and all at the last minute. We hadn't planned for flowers for the ceremony while it was in the garden but after changing plans less than 24 hours until the beginning of everything, CBD put together a truly beautiful ceremony for us for an extremely reasonable price. The reception hall was gorgeous, the food honestly the best I've ever had at a wedding, and the staff was amazing. I can't say enough how beautiful everything was and how perfectly the decor and cake matched my husband and my tastes, even though we were pretty bad at articulatin... Read more

  • There aren't enough superlatives to describe our wedding at the College of Physicians. We're not currently living in Philadelphia and had some anxiety about planning a wedding from out of town, but Diana Airoldi and Dan Love at Catering by Design assuaged our fears and then some. Every last detail was taken care of. When we gave them a vague idea of the vibe we were going for, they read our minds and decorated the space perfectly. When we told them we wanted fun, unconventional wedding food, they put together a menu that had all of our guests raving (complete with chicken and waffles!). In everything they did, they were thorough, attentive, and helpful. Though they were likely working with dozens of couples on any given day, we always felt like we were their most important clients. We *highly* recommend getting married at the College of Physicians, especially if you're as hands-off and stressed about the wedding planning process as we were. Our wedding day was perfect, largely than... Read more

  • I cannot say enough great things about The College of Physicians of Philadelphia and Catering By Design. The venue was just gorgeous. We had our ceremony outside in the garden, cocktail hour on the first floor both inside and out, and then our reception was upstairs in the grand Mitchell Hall. From the moment we saw the space we just knew that it was perfect. You get the entire building to yourselves, so sharing a space with other weddings like at other venues. The Mutter Museum was open during cocktail hour at no additional cost. We are still hearing such great things and how everyone just loved having that as part of the day. Catering by Design is the exclusive caterer for the site and it really was a fantastic experience. Dan Love was just the BEST. He really made us feel special. We were able to have any and everything that we wanted, and with his guidance it went just wonderfully. The food was exceptional and was one of the highlights of the night. One doesn't usually have a... Read more

  • We couldn't have had a more beautiful venue for our wedding. The groom is a writer, so we were able to have our ceremony in the library upstairs followed by cocktails on outside in the garden and our reception in the ballroom upstairs. The evening flowed seamlessly throughout the building. The staff went above and beyond for our wedding. As the bride, I didn't have to worry about a thing-- everything was taken care of and more. Absolutely stunning venue with outstanding staff-- I would HIGHLY recommend!

  • My wedding was late April 2017 - everything went extremely well the day-of - all of our guests were raving about the entire wedding and the food was exceptional, especially for a catered event for 250 people. Diana is really great to work with and helped us every step of the way. I planned out custom linens about 4 different times and each time Diana was helpful and patient with me. There were a few hiccups along the way with planning but that is to be expected with planning any event of this size. The entire night went by so fast and everything flowed together really well. Guests were never waiting long for food or drinks and the staff was extremely attentive throughout the night. Considering the cost of a wedding today, the College of Physicians and Catering By Design is a great value - you get a lot of food and great attention for the price. I hope to be able to host another event again here in the future!!

  • This was an amazing venue and working with CBD event group was wonderful! The venue itself was the most unique and beautifully stunning place to have a wedding. All of my guest are still talking about it weeks later. Many people claimed it was the best venue they have ever been to, and I agree!
