The Best Places to Propose in Philadelphia

The Best Places to Propose in Philadelphia

By John Ryan, J&J Studios.

1. Addison Street

One of the Best Places to Propose in Philadelphia is on the gorgeous Addison Street (between 18th and 19th streets).  Every year around the holidays, it is filled with thousands of Christmas tree lights.  A perfect mood for the perfect moment.

2. LOVE Park

Love Park, Arch St, Philadelphia, PA. Probably the most iconic place you can propose in Philadelphia. Looks especially good at night.

3. South Street Bridge

If views of the city skyline are your thing, then South Street Bridge might be the way to go. Looks good day or night.

4. Elfreth’s Alley

Elfreth’s Alley has the title of the oldest residential street in the nation. So proposing at this historic site isn’t such a bad idea.  The brick and cobblestone streets are amazing.

5. Broad Street

We call this the “Broad Street Bride” shot in the photographic community.  Simply because so many people have their engagement/wedding/proposal photos done here that given any major Saturday April-September there is usually a line of brides on the median at this spot waiting to get the Philly signature picture.  Truly classic and iconic.

6. R2L

Is it winter and -10°F outside? Do you like fancy food and fine wine?  Are you a bougie restaurant gourmand?  Maybe proposing on the 37th floor of 2 Liberty Place with stunning views of the city would be a good fit for you!

7. Rittenhouse Square

Looks great during the day or night.  Really cannot go wrong proposing here.  There are a variety of backgrounds to work with and a large fountain in the center.

8. Wissahickon Valley Park

If nature is more your thing, maybe doing your proposal in Wissahickon Valley Park is a good idea.  Wissahickon Valley Park contains Wissahickon Creek as well as a variety of trails, trees and leaves. Looks beautiful around autumn.

10. The Kimmel Center 

Nothing scores brownie points like renting out the auditorium, throwing a giant slideshow up and getting down on bended knee at center stage.  Pretty epic to say the least.  Sets the bar mighty high for the rest of us.

11. Nineteen

Yes, it’s not a typo.  That’s the name of the restaurant on the Nineteenth floor of the Bellevue Hotel. Sweeping views of the city and perfect for the big moment.

12. John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge

What can I say except nature, birds, the Tinicum Marsh, 1000-acre National Wildlife Refuge, a birdwatcher’s paradise.  If deep in nature bird watching is more your speed, I’d propose here.
