Described as one of America’s largest and oldest public markets, it is safe to say Reading Terminal Market is a classic historical spot for both Philadelphia tourists and locals to grub on some delicious food. The market carries anything from poultry to baked goods to seafood! It is without a doubt an awesome space for all things food but what about for a wedding or corporate event?
Philly Snap Booth has had the wonderful opportunity to be apart of both weddings and corporate events in Reading Terminal Market. When the PSB team initially discovered the market doubled as a venue, we were instantly elated to see how the space would be transformed for various events.
Although this transformation was new to the PSB team, transforming Reading Terminal Market into a venue for weddings, corporate events, and more is nothing new for All About Events, the market’s event team.
The transformation begins shortly after 6PM, after the market closes for the public. Almost instantly, clean up begins. Tables and chairs used for the public are cleaned, moved, and dressed for particular events. The final touches depend on the specific event.
The magical wedding transformation begins with the hanging of elegant strings of lights from the ceiling. A grand piano or DJ booth is placed on what has now been transformed into the dance floor. Slowly but surely, what you traditionally think of as Reading Terminal Market is no more. However, there are still the classic elements of the market peaking through the transformation. The steel beams, colorful signs, and signature design are still present, giving a perfect blend of Reading Terminal Market meets romantic wedding night.
For one particular wedding, the PSB team brought out our vintage booth! Our vintage booth is a booth you will not find anywhere else. Made specifically for Philly Snap Booth earlier this year, it is a one of a kind design that provides clients with an alluring timeless look.
Our vintage booth has been a hit at other events and nothing changed with this event! Being that Reading Terminal Market is one of America’s oldest public markets, there are fascinating elements that go perfectly with the look of our vintage booth. The guests appreciated how the booth had a more mature exterior but with modern technology in the interior that provided an incredible experience. In many ways, the vintage booth was very representative of the event. The booth and event were an excellent blend of old meets new!
Although the market is one of the oldest public markets, don’t be fooled, modern is very much welcomed in the venue! Our sleek and modern Color Booth has made many appearances in the market, for both weddings and corporate events. Guests love how the simplistic, minimalist look of the booth brings out the unique elements of the market.
The Color Booth made its first appearance during a corporate event. Instead of traditional wedding decor, bright green and orange tablecloths lit up the room. Colorful balloons added some fun to the tables and of course, the company’s logo and freebies could be found throughout the venue.
In the future, PSB will have the privilege of being apart of more events at this notorious venue. We are elated to see how the space will continue to be transformed for each unique event.
In addition, PSB will be sponsoring All About Events’ Annual 2020 Client Open House & Tasting! This event will take place in January 18th, 2020 at none other than, the Reading Terminal Market. With a speakeasy theme, our vintage booth and speakeasy backdrop will be sure to be a success!
