The Grand Lobby is where most weddings at the Warner Theatre are celebrated. It's a classic, elaborate lobby, which draws on the theater's timeless art deco theme. A bronze staircase, draped tapestries, and gold-backed mirrors all catch the eye. The light overhead is soft, thanks to sparkling crystal chandeliers. Gold and silver leaf are featured throughout. Because of its size and splendor, the Warner Theatre is a venue perfectly suited for larger weddings. The Grand Lobby accommodates 250 people for a sit-down dinner, and 500 guests for standing events.
The theater is equipped so that each of your guests can enjoy your special day. Each of its main entrances are disability accessible, and headsets are available for the hearing impaired upon request. The Warner Theatre has an in-house sound system, as well as lighting options, so your guests can enjoy your day as much as you will. Your guests will appreciate the attentiveness of the highly professional Warner Theatre staff. The theater is also air conditioned, meaning you can have the wedding of your dreams during any season of the year.
Choosing a venue is one of—if not the most important—decision a couple makes when planning their wedding. I truly believe that each venue is as unique as the couples I have the pleasure of photographing. One of my favorite venues to showcase is the historic Warner Theatre in Erie, PA.
The Warner Theatre is located in the heart of downtown Erie, PA. The theater has been on the National Register of Historical Places since 1982—and for a good reason. It was commissioned by Warner Bros. to be built in 1929 and has since become the center of all things cultural in the Erie, PA area. The Warner Theatre is home to the Erie Philharmonic, the Lake Erie Ballet, and the Erie Broadway Series. Several dozen world-renowned musicians and entertainers have graced the stage at Warner Theatre. The theater itself has over 2,250 upholstered seats, including balcony seating.
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!
