Philadelphia: National Society of The Colonial Dames of America

The primary mission of the National Society of The Colonial Dames of America to preserve local and national heritage through preservation of historic properties, conservation, and education. With deep roots to the colonial times, the NSCDAPA uses these and other means to promote respect for those who lived and worked before the major historical milestones of 1776.

All this in mind, what a gorgeous place to get married!

The staff at NSCDA is lovely, as they are at another location (Washington, DC) that we’ve had the honor to visit. As their mission is to preserve and promote respect, it’s really the perfect place for your most special of days. Located on Latimer Street, off Rittenhouse, this little gem stays hidden from view. One really feels transported after stepping through those gates. Especially since just across the way is a fantastic pub for working out those pre-wedding jitters!
