Heinz History Center Weddings:
The Heinz History Center offers a chance for couples to create their own memories in a tremendous space. Located in the ever-popular Strip District, the Heinz History Center is only a few seconds from downtown Pittsburgh. If your guests are staying in one of the many nearby hotels then there is no shortage of things for them to do – from fine dining to shows to shopping.
Location is important, but even more so is the versatility of the space and the professionalism of the staff. The Heinz History Center delivers on both of these counts. Options for ceremonies include the Library & Archives Reading Room:
or in the Great Hall:
as well as the outdoor deck connected to the Mueller Center on the 5th floor:
When it comes to receptions, the Heinz History Center has you covered. Getting started with cocktail hour, the Campbell Gallery is a perfect place for guests to enjoy refreshments before touring exhibits.
The Mueller Center on the 5th Floor is a grand space with a wall of windows filling the room with natural light. As mentioned before, the outdoor deck gives you a place to cool off when the action on the dance floor gets too hot. The room seats up to 300 guests making it a great choice for big weddings. The window wall and high ceilings mean you’ll never feel cramped.
The Great Hall has an industrial feel that harkens back to its original use as an ice house. The heavy steel beams and vaulted brick ceiling provide a look that is unique among event spaces. There’s a 2-story staircase that is perfect for making a grand entrance (and for your photographer to get some great shots of the dancing – just saying!). Vintage vehicles including the Heinz Hitch, a roller coaster car from Kennywood and an original trolley are points of interest in the room.
The space is very versatile, enabling you to decorate it in a way that suits your taste. From black and red:
To white and silver:
Ample space means that you can set up a bar away from the dance floor and guest’s table:
Another great place to make an entrance is through the glass doors on dance floor level:
Of course, there is only one brand of ketchup that matters:
There’s a whole lot of ways to photograph the trolley, but here’s an award-winning photo that I made:
