Now I know what you are probably thinking… Who would want to have their wedding in Camden, NJ. Turnout… a lot of people do! Camden NJ is a historic city in New Jersey. It is located right across the Delaware River from Philadelphia PA. Camden’s Historic district houses 26 state parks and historic sites, which makes it a perfect place to have an outdoor wedding ceremony.

Because there are so many things to see and do within the city of Camden you will not run out of ideas if you decide that this is the place for your big day.

Adventures on the Water There are many wonderful things to do within this city, and one of them is taking a cruise down the Delaware River in one of their antique paddle wheelers. If you have never been on one before, you will be pleasantly surprised at how relaxing they can be! You will love being able to enjoy each other’s company and just be able to talk with ease without having any outside distractions whatsoever. One such boat would have to be The Hyatt family riverboat that sails up and down the Delaware Bay; which is located right here in Camden NJ. This yacht was once used by the owner of HJ Heinz Company.

If you want something that is much more modern take a Riverboat Cruise with Captain John, the owner of The Spirit of Philadelphia. If that’s not enough romance and excitement for you then how about a dinner cruise on Miss Camden at night? There are also other tour boats available for you to take such as: Finns Ferry and Liberty Landing which is owned by Hornblower Yachting.

It doesn’t matter what age you are either since they can accommodate everyone from kids (on Miss Camden) up to seniors (on the Hyatt). You will certainly have a wonderful time no matter where you decide to go. 

And once you have your big day you can travel a city over to Cherry Hill, NJ where you can have your reception at The Mansion on Main Street. This is an 18th-century mansion that was built in 1770, which has been restored to its original splendor.
