Venue Information

I love working at Union Trust! The architecture and vibe is simply captivating and the staff always go above and beyond to make sure the atmosphere is stellar. My clients always love their experience here and become raving fans of this awesome Old City venue. Like the Ballroom at the Ben down the street, the location of Union Trust lends itself to an easy day/evening for your wedding with many hotels and beautiful photo locations just outside the door.

The Union Trust is a wedding venue in Philadelphia's Historic District. This beautiful structure, which initially operated as The Union Trust Company Bank, was built in 1888 and is an expression of rich Philadelphia history. Its massive architecture and excellent furnishings create a modern, trendy atmosphere for a memorable wedding event. The convenience of their in-house event coordination and expert catering services will take the worry out of the planning process and allow you to focus on your loved ones throughout the experience.

Union Trust has four indoor event venues that can hold up to 190 people. Its soaring 65-foot lit engraved ceilings, artistically accentuated walls, various private rooms, and a beautiful balcony overlooks the entire arena are all aspects of the event. Union Trust will leave your visitors amazed with its blend of old, royal Philadelphia and a fresh, dynamic atmosphere.
