Delaware Contemporary– This review from Liz M. of Philadelphia says everything you need to know about your event at Delaware Contemporary:

“We were lucky enough to have had our wedding reception at the Delaware Contemporary. Our guests loved the big open foyer space – which comfortably fit our 140 seated guests – and enjoyed walking through the galleries during cocktail hour. Not only was the space beautiful, industrial, and comfortable, it was air conditioned – which made the 100+ degree July heat a non-issue for our celebration!”
