When you've found the One, deciding to say "I do" might be easy. The real challenge lies in figuring out the details. Chocolate fountain or open bar? Store-bought centerpieces or D-I-Ys? And, perhaps most importantly, where should the ceremony be held? After all, they say that home is where the heart is. With this logic, your wedding venue becomes a home-away-from-home and the launching point for a new life with your partner.
At Matt Mead Photography, we know that these decisions can be stressful. Erie, PA is full of stunning wedding venues, each with its own merits. As local photographers, we've had the opportunity to capture happy couples all over the city. We've seen first-hand how Presque Isle's Lake Erie can serve as a glimmering backdrop to a joyful pair. We've helped subjects make their own history at iconic settings like the Concourse at Union Station. We may be biased as lifelong residents, but we love Erie and know that your love can come alive within this city.
To help you make sense of your many options, we've compiled a list of some of our all-time favorite venues. Regardless of how much seating you'll need or what seasons you're planning for, we are confident that you can find your perfect match in Erie. Explore our picks below by clicking on their titles. The resulting pages can give you more location-specific information, as well as some of our favorite captures from previous ceremonies at that venue.
And remember, the location of your big day won't make or break the wedding. No venue can be bad when it's filled with your favorite people. Wherever your friends and family are, there's sure to be smiles there, too. And where there are smiles, we are ready to capture every joyful moment.
Not only are we uniquely suited to capture the many historic landmarks of Erie, but we'd like to think we're especially qualified to capture Erie couples. As a Pennsylvanian couple ourselves, we greatly value the privilege of getting to hear your local love stories. We've fallen more in love with our city through capturing couples' love all throughout it.
It's couples like you that bring out the heart in our hometown. Matt Mead Photography hopes to help you celebrate your day in the uniquely Erie way - whether by capturing your ceremony or helping connect you with the right venue. We'd be honored to be even a footnote in your love story... but we'd especially love to help illustrate it.

You have a couple of options here. First, you can head over to the contact us page, fill out the form, and send it over to us. Or, send us a text message with your name, wedding date, and venue. Either way, we do our best to get back to you by the next business day.
If we're available on your date, we will then set up a time to meet, chat about your day, and create a package that fulfills your wish list. Your and your fiance's signatures on our contract plus a non-refundable deposit officially reserves your date on our calendar.
You will get both! I photograph every wedding using two different cameras -- one dedicated to black and white and the other to color. The ratio of black and white to color photos you receive in your gallery may change based on your chosen wedding colors, venue, and/or preference. If you see a black and white image that you want in color, or vice versa, it is very likely that I will have it and can add it to your gallery.
At Matt Mead Photography we believe that building relationships with our clients is the best way to serve them. That's why we value meeting all of our couples face-to-face by video call. We look forward to meeting you soon!
