The 10 Best Spots To Get Married In Pittsburgh
One of the most vital decisions for your big day is choosing the venue. This will hold a special place in you and your partner’s life forever and should capture exactly what you expect your wedding day to feel like.
Much like engagement rings, wedding venues are not a one-size-fits-all solution. Numerous factors go into deciding the perfect place for you to celebrate, including:
- Location – Where do you want to get married ? How far are your guests willing to travel ?
- Style – What do you want your backdrop to look like in your wedding photos ?
- Size – How big does your venue need to be ?
- Budget – How much can you afford for your big day ?
Once you have those questions answered, you can find the perfect venue for your wedding day.

9. Heinz Chapel
Heinz Chapel is one of the most popular buildings in Oakland. The iconic red doors open into a stunning, high ceiling church that will serve as the stage for your wedding ceremony. And don’t worry—you don’t have to be a University of Pittsburgh alumni to celebrate your marriage here !
10. Grand Concourse
Celebrate your wedding across the bridge from Downtown Pittsburgh in Station Square at the Grand Concourse. Stepping into the former railroad station, you may be stunned by the vintage decor, stained glass windows, and cathedral ceiling, but that is not all The Grand Concourse offers. The seats along the large windows showcase the Pittsburgh skyline to leave your guests in aw.

"Juan was amazing! He communicated with us and helped us to pick more contemporary songs that would work well for the solo violin we booked. Our guests loved the acoustics of the violin in the smaller church we used and it helped to make our day that much better. I would definitely recommend!" Ashley & Matthew 10/17/20 Old Stone Church Solo Violin "We used the Steven Vance String Trio for our wedding ceremony and it was AMAZING. We received so many compliments on how lovely it made the ceremony. They did an incredible job and were very easy and professional to work with." Courtney & Marc 10/10/20 St. Margaret Mary Church AAA String Trio "Would recommend Steven Vance’s company to anyone! We booked their DJ package for our wedding and I’m so glad we did! Steve was extremely courteous through the whole process and helped us book the appropriate package for us. We worked with DJ Vanessa for our wedding and she was so wonderful. Awesome personality and truly cares about giving you the perfect day. She took time to get to know us and really listened to our music preferences and played the perfect mix of songs/genres. She had great energy for announcements and really ensured the reception transitions ran smoothly. It was an awesome experience from start to finish with Steven Vance and I’d absolutely work with them again!" Jordan & Matt 10/17/20 Southpointe Golf Club DJ Vanessa "I’d like to pass along my sincerest gratitude to DJ Mike Greca. He made our wedding experience so wonderful and was truly a delight. He was professional, on time and prepared, and a fabulous MC for our wedding! We appreciate everything and could not have asked for a better DJ."
"I’m on my way to my honeymoon, but I wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you. Tiffany and Lorenzo were both fantastic and made sure my wedding was wonderful. Tiffany’s music was stunning, and it was easy to work with her. But what I really wanted to let you know was how wonderful Renzo was! He went above and beyond for me the entire time I was working with him. He was very communicative and easy to talk to in advance. He made sure he had all the info he needed. He was professional, and fun to work with. And he was a great DJ! Set everything up very well, kept the guests entertained, on the dance floor, and kept my timeline going. I know he will do excellent work for many more of your brides in the future!"
