Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The architecture and detailing are exquisite. Union Trust began life in 1888 as one of Philadelphia’s most prominent banks, and its opulent interior harks back to the city’s rich commerce history. In addition to several sumptuously appointed smaller rooms, the central gallery features 65-foot illuminated carved ceilings, ornately decorated walls, and a gorgeous balcony that overlooks the room below.
  • It’s got the perfect downtown location. Your wedding will take place right in the heart of Philly, just blocks from the Liberty Bell Center, Independence Hall, and the historic Old City. There are great restaurants, bars, museums, and markets nearby, and your guests will have no trouble finding lodging among the dozens of hotels in the neighborhood.
  • You’ll have topnotch event planners and caterers on your side. Finley Catering, which handles all the weddings at Union Trust, is dedicated to producing flawless affairs, and is always available to assist with details large and small. They have nearly 40 years’ experience in the field, and have created exquisite menus for presidents, celebrities, and star athletes.
