Here in the room for receptions, where brunch is served, all the views are artfully designed.

Here’s part of the new addition to the RittenHouse. This balcony, viewed from the reception/brunch room, would be the perfect place to throw the bouquet from.

Scene from one of the gift shop rooms. This is not your father’s Oldsmobile! All the items are remarkable and lovely.

Here is yet another balcony in the Rittenhouse.

Each room in the Rittenhouse is unique. This elegant sitting room seats about 14 people for a dinner meeting or a working luncheon, a shower or romantic anniversary dinner.

This chandelier graces yet another beautiful dining room. This room seats about 12 people too.

The window on a stair landing from yet another dining room going up to more shoppes.

Who is this mysterious lady who greets you as you step inside? Maybe it’s Aunt Ritzy.
