If you’re looking for a Philadelphia wedding venue with a minimalist aesthetic, Power Plant Productions is your place. The airy venue is the perfect place to host any style of wedding, big or small. It has all the charm of its Old City neighborhood while still feeling modern. Ava and Christian’s Power Plant Productions wedding was so much fun!
Walking into Power Plant Productions feels like walking into a cool exhibit space. In fact, the aesthetic of Power Plant Productions can be best described as “art gallery minimalist.” It’s bright and airy with big white walls. Tall industrial windows let in so much light that daytime weddings positively glow.
The wide open space has beautiful hardwood floors. Warm spherical lighting fixtures hang from the towering ceilings. The venue feels big but not overwhelming. Ava and Christian’s Power Plan Productions wedding felt intimate despite the space’s dimensions. They achieved this by staging the venue very intentionally on the day of their wedding.
Because Power Plant Productions has such a minimalist, open aesthetic, it’s very customizable. You can achieve just about any vibe with the right decor. Ava and Christian opted for a modern look with minimal decorations. Florals brought in jewel-toned pops of color to the reception. With the white walls and linens, the arrangements didn’t have to be large to make a big impact.
The venue also could accommodate elaborate floral installations or other big decorative elements. Since the interior is neutral, any color scheme would work. This is helpful as bright colors become more popular for wedding decor.
A Power Plant Productions wedding provides opportunities for candid portraits indoors and outdoors. Walking around Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood, you can find historic brick buildings and modern mosaic murals. The iconic Benjamin Franklin Bridge is just across the street. I love the modern feel of Ava and Christian’s photos by the bridge. Penn’s Landing, a popular riverfront park, is also less than a mile away.
True to its name, Power Plant Productions is located in a building that served as a power plant in the early 1900’s. Since then, a chocolate factory operated on the site before it became an event space. As a result, Power Plant Productions has a commercial style kitchen and a wide open floor plan complete with tall windows and hardwood floors.
A Power Plant Productions wedding comes with all of Old City Philadelphia’s conveniences. Situated near the river, this district is packed with historic landmarks, upscale restaurants, and boutique hotels. Whether your guests are locals or out-of-towners, they’ll find plenty of entertainment here.
Like many couples, Ava and Christian actually had to postpone their wedding due to the pandemic. In that time, they didn’t just sit around either. They moved all the way to California! Their Philadelphia wedding was the perfect excuse to celebrate with family and friends whom they hadn’t seen in a long time. It felt like a big reunion as much as two people saying “I do.”
Ava and Christian’s comfort is really reflected in their photos. You can tell they’re having the best time! One thing I value as a photographer is giving people space to feel present and connected with their loved ones. Ava and Christian’s day was full of those little moments that mean so much.
This Power Plant Productions wedding was full of authentic magic. Ava and Christian’s ceremony was intimate. I love that they broke tradition and walked up the aisle together. The white fabric draped around the ceremony space gave it a dream-like quality.
At the reception, the speeches and dances too had funny and sentimental moments. The couple’s community showed up to give them an incredible experience. Those spontaneous laughs and hugs made for some of the best photos.
