As a Philadelphia wedding photographer, I love documenting weddings at the Union Trust! This is one of my favorite venues in the city and I do believe it is one of the most beautiful and unique venues you could possibly find out there. Formerly a bank building, the Union Trust has been transformed into one of Finley's venues and has been hosting multiple wedding celebrations since 2014.
If you are planning a Philadelphia wedding and looking for a spectacular venue with a character, look no further than the Union Trust. This Philadelphia wedding venue has so many unique features and endless beautiful backdrops for unique wedding photographs! With its sixty-five feet vaulted ceilings, illuminated vibrant walls, spectacular uplighting, stone staircase and a huge bar with windows overlooking the Historical Old City - all of that created an impeccable setting for an unforgettable wedding celebration.
You can have both of your wedding ceremony and reception being hosted at the Union Trust Ballroom. The wedding ceremonies take place in the main ballroom, which is being quickly converted to the reception setting during the cocktails.
The Cocktail hour takes place on the mezzanine floor of the Union Trust, overlooking the main ballroom. There is also a gorgeous bridal suite and a few additional rooms on the same floor, where you can take additional family or bridal party photos.
One of my favorite parts of Union Trust wedding receptions if the introduction of the bride and groom! While all of the guests and bridal party are already on the main floor of the ballroom, the new Mr. and Mrs. are making their entrance through the balcony on the mezzanine level. Spotlit with a huge beam of light, this moments are always spectacular and look incredible on photographs.
The average cost of a wedding at The Union Trust is estimated at between $20,750 and $25,000 for a ceremony & reception for 100 guests. The Union Trust ballroom can accommodate up to 190 guests.
