How about Columbia Station in Phoenixsville? It may be a tad pricey, but its all inclusive…its an old train station from the Reading line, built in the late 1800s….could see ticket STD, invites, etc…its unique, historical, and fits all your requirements….

You might like my venue if your budget can accommodate it-

The Liberty House in Jersey City. The food was great, I’m pretty sure you can get 180 minimum off peak, and it checks all of your boxes; it even has a ferry landing from manhattan. Here are some pictures:

If you’re looking at Front and Palmer, I’m assuming you’re willing to travel to Philadelphia? If so, I’d check out the Cescaphe venues! They are the best in Philly, especially in terms of food. They all have tons of space for seating, fantastic food, cocktail areas, heat/ac, and valet parking. 

I’m getting married at the Down Town Club (a Cescaphe venue). I love the venue! It’s gorgeous, spacious, and a perfect fusion of modern and classic. The photos of the Cescaphe venues don’t do them justice, so I’d recommend a trip to Philly to look if you’re considering them! You also really might like the Cescaphe ballroom because it has outside space, or the Atrium at the Curtis Center because it’s enormous and gorgeous.   

Our venue!: 



MeiFrancis:  Also, your venue is GORGEOUS! I’ve never been there, but it looks like an incredible pick!

I am getting married at Midtown Loft and Terrace so I am partial 🙂 I love the space and the fact that you can bring in your own caterer and make it your own. We have the same amount on our guestlist (200) and they have been great to work with. It was hard to find a venue we loved. Good luck!

did you check out the park restaurant in nyc?

it’s right by the highline and has a garden that can accommodate many people. and it’s indoors but feels outdoors.


i think you can go much cheaper than what they first quote you according to my research. 🙂
