Couples looking to say "I do!" in spring 2021 or spring 2022 now have a new venue option thanks to a partnership between Constellation Culinary Group, the Rodin Museum and the Barnes Foundation.

The two cultural institutions are offering a unique wedding package, where couples can have a garden ceremony at the Rodin and then proceed to the Barnes' covered West Terrace for an outdoor reception. Both museums are located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philly.
