About

Power Plant is an incredible space for a memorable event. This striking warehouse photo studio is the ideal location for your next event. Power Plant Productions is the most unique venue in Philadelphia. Conveniently located in Philadelphia's Old City gallery district, the studio occupies the former Wilbur Chocolate Factory. It retains all of the industrial feel from this early 1900鈥檚 power plant, with steel beams, 34 feet of industrial windows, diagonal hardwood floors, a 25-foot ceiling, exposed and painted brick walls and a massive interior smokestack. The studio is over 4,000 square feet with a commercial style kitchen; perfect for a unique special event, wedding or corporate party. Parking is located directly across the street.

Book this venue for your wedding!

We were over the moon about our wedding at Power Plant! The venue is absolutely stunning - we barely needed to decorate with all of the lighting and curtains already in the space. The smokestack makes for an incredible centerpiece and we were able to highlight it with our projected slideshow set up by the venue. Chris and Jim, the owners, and Tommi, the studio manager, are fantastic to work with, very responsive and flexible. The location is convenient in the city although be prepared to climb several flights of stairs to get in and out - there is no elevator. Could not recommend more highly, you will receive so many compliments from your guests!

A One-of-a-Kind Space for our Special Day

We could not have selected a more perfect location to host our wedding ceremony and reception last month. The first time we stepped into the Power Plant, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. A perfect blank canvas, the space is airy, intimate, and one-of-a-kind. Chris and her husband, Jim, did an amazing job transforming the former chocolate factory into the event and studio space that it is today. We loved that it is a family-owned business, not some large-event conglomerate. We felt cared for and heard every step of the way. Chris and her team are kind, communicative, and anticipated our every need. Thank you for helping to make our day the best day.

Could not have asked for better venue

We are so happy that we decided to have our wedding at Power Plant Productions. Jim & Chris were so incredible through our whole wedding experience and we could not have asked for any more from them. The venue was perfect for our big day and provided a great atmosphere. They were really accommodating in making things personal to us whilst also leading us when we needed advice and suggestions.
