Convenient Location

It’s so close to Pittsburgh, but a world apart. I’m pretty partial to that part of Western PA because I grew up about 10 minutes away from Succop Nature Park. Maybe that’s why I love the feeling of the place, but I don’t think I’m alone. All of the couples whose Succop Nature Park weddings I’ve photographed over the years were also drawn to the relaxing, secluded atmosphere that comes from the historic property.

One of the ceremony options is on the drive in front of the 1800’s-era Marcraig House.

There’s plenty of space for brides and grooms to both get ready in the house.

Abundant natural light makes for wonderful portraits.

details from a wedding include a lace dress, a sign with bride and groom on bicycle with balloons a vintage suitcase with stickers from foreign ports and a beautiful pair of shoes amongst chinese pottery

You can really make the place your own by adding some of your details to the existing decor. Kind of like a home away from home.

Outdoor Ceremonies

Receptions in the Pavilion

The outdoor pavilion is an open-air room where you can dine and dance during your reception. It’s got plenty of room for a band or a DJ. Medure’s is the caterer and they do a great job.

On summer evenings it stays light until 9pm. The natural light gradually fades away leaving the warm glow of the outdoor lighting.

Such a relaxing atmosphere! You can have a campfire and conversations away from the dance floor.
