Celebrate the love of your life at a unique wedding venue this year—get married in Christmas Village!

Two great LOVE Park traditions will become one this holiday season!

For much of the year, LOVE Park turns into a wedding venue during Wedding Wednesdays. That’s when the area in front of the iconic LOVE sculpture hosts ceremonies from March through October.

Then, in late November, Christmas Village sets up in LOVE Park. Philadelphia’s authentic German Christmas market is a beloved tradition. This holiday pop-up offers food, drink, and merriment for all.

This year, Wedding Wednesdays and Christmas Village are coupling up! Wedding Wednesdays will host additional ceremonies this year. They will take place from November 29, 2023 through December 20, 2023.

Couples can exchange vows at the LOVE sculpture with up to four guests. Once they’ve said “I do!” they can then begin their life’s journey in Christmas Village’s winter wonderland.

Newlyweds aren’t the only ones invited to celebrate! Married couples looking to renew their vows in a memorable way can also join in the LOVE.


Half-hour time slots are now open on the following Wednesdays:

  • November 29, 2023
  • December 6, 2023
  • December 13, 2023
  • December 20, 2023

The Christmas Village ceremonies will take place between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Each one is 30 minutes long. Time slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Wedding groups will be limited to the couple plus four guests (total of six people).


Wedding Wednesdays take place at the LOVE sculpture on the 15th Street side of the park, closest to City Hall.

There’s a $200 fee to get married or renew your vows in LOVE Park. Payment is made to the Fairmount Park Conservancy.

This fee is in addition to the cost of getting a marriage license. 

What’s provided

When you sign up for a Wedding Wednesdays ceremony, Parks & Rec provides an officiant from Journeys of the Heart. They will conduct the ceremony. Or, you can use your own officiant, but the ceremony fee still applies.

Your ceremony will take place rain or shine.
