Well, the end of an era has finally arrived. It’s a sad, sad, SAD week as the legendary luxury hotel, the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia, is closing its doors at One Logan Square. In a couple years, it will reopen in a new chi-chi spot high in the clouds and we intend to party hard there, God willing! However, and I speak for myself, as well as the whole Evantine Design crew, WE will always be grateful for the amazing 30+ years we worked on events at the Four Seasons. The number of incredible events we produced and planned under that roof make my head spin! In fact, I remember bringing trees up to the roof of the building in 1983 when it was being topped off and the hotel was just being introduced to Philadelphia!

As you can see from the collection of event photos below, we have enjoyed many years of fellowship, collaboration and partnership with the exceptional professionals that proudly call(ed) the Four Seasons home. Unbelievable stories, memorable occasions, unforgettable celebrations. That’s the Four Seasons spirit and it will rise again! And when it does, Evantine will be there. Ready for the next chapter to begin… but seriously…

THANK YOU for redefining the standard of luxury in Philadelphia. XOXO Brian

    Great photos. I remember going over once and there was grass sod on all the tables. You guys transformed the space so completely.

    Goodbye, Four Seasons Philadelphia. You will be missed. Lets hope the new location is like the Phoenix, and is even more brilliant when it rises from its ashes.
