Hello fellow Chowhounders! I'm in the midst of planning a wedding in Philly. I live in Seattle, but my fiance and I met in Philly and have lived there for several years (plus my whole family lives there). We're planning something dressy casual with a non denominational ceremony followed by dinner and dancing for 75-100 guests. We're thinking springtime for the big day and would like to have the whole shebang in one place (rather than ceremony at one place, reception at another).
We are both passionate about food and have no restrictions except I'd like to keep the food budget to <$150 pp. One place that seems reasonable is First and Palmer, the venue that also serves as headquarters for Feast Your Eyes catering. They seem like they have a lot of fun with food and did get a good mention in a thread on here a few months ago.
Food really is the most important aspect of our wedding, and I welcome any and all recommendations and leads (including restaurants that do catering). Nontraditional venues are also desirable, but not if it compromises the food significantly.
