  1. Thanks so much for this post! I am using it as I begin to plan my wedding : )

  2. elizabeth cody says:

    the morning glory on the s. side is very small. my cousin stayed there last year. it is old and run down big time….. no friendly innkeeper to even greet guests who have paid in full for the weekend. no breakfast like you would think a band b would have. it is a big NO.

  3. look

  4. Some of the most creative weddings we've been to were at the Carnegie Museum, Science Center and the Andy Warhol Museum. We're fortunate to have a ton of culture in the 'burgh.

  5. How about Wedding shower /Rehearsal dinner suggestions? I have already booked reception but still shopping for these two….thanks

  6. Great places to have for a wedding, thanks for sharing. It was a nice wedding spot !

  7. Succop Conservancy is a really great place too; just north of the city off of Route 8.

  8. Marquee Wedding Company says:

    We just did a great wedding at The Mansion at Maple Heights last weekend and have several weddings booked at J Verno Studios, The Childrens Museum, and The Heinz History Center this summer. If you need a great wedding DJ to go with these unique venues check us out at http://www.MarqueeWeddingCompany.com

  9. I went to Pitt as an undergrad and my roommates and I all agreed it would be awesome to host our weddings at the Cathedral of Learning. It’s got the gorgeous nationality rooms. Plus the main floor looks like the interior of a gothic castle. And to make it even more fun, maybe play a round of sardines and make the groom find the bride in one of the 30+ floors before the ceremony can start.

      Cathedral of Learning is great for wedding photos. Haven’t done a whole wedding there, but for pictures, absolutely!
