We are so blessed to live in a gorgeous part of Pennsylvania! Erie has no lack of stunning wedding venues and the Erie Yacht Club (EYC) is definitely near the top of our list! If you're planning your wedding in Erie, we definitely suggest that you get in contact with EYC and see it for yourself!
The EYC is a terrific venue for your wedding, reception, shower, corporate party, bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah because...
They offer full catering in-house which can be a real time saver and stress reducer! Their menus range from "coffee break" style quick eats to full service traditional wedding fare. As of September, 2019 the basic full wedding package is very reasonably priced at $55 per person and includes your own personal event coordinator, cutting and serving of wedding cake, four hours of open bar, a champagne toast, the dance floor and of course the stunning view of Presque Isle Bay.
Another huge reason we love weddings at Erie Yacht Club is the you get your own personal wedding coordinator, Elizabeth Dougan. You can read more about her and the services she provides on our blog.
What makes this wedding venue unique? You can get married out on the water! Imagine the stunning wedding photos of the bride and groom surrounded by Lake Erie's sparkling waves! You could also perform your nuptials lakeside, overlooking Presque Isle Bay as a backdrop. There are so many exciting ways to use natural lighting, moving water, reflections and weather that your wedding photos are sure to be jaw-dropping!
Beyond that, there are numerous gardens and even a view of Downtown.
The EYC is one of the most sought after wedding venues in Erie. They will ask for a $1,000 down payment, and you'll be booking at least a year ahead (maybe even a year and a half). They host as many as 400 events there every year, which is a testament to the quality of the venue. It's still worth a shot to give them a call if you're getting married sooner though, cancellations do happen so there is always a chance you'll get in!
As a photographer I get excited about wedding venues like this, because they offer so many options. Every wedding is unique, and every bride deserves to have completely fresh, one-of-a-kind photos to remember her special day. Contact us for more beautiful Erie wedding photography ideas!
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!
