Fairmont Hotel Pittsburgh Weddings
The Fairmont Hotel Pittsburgh is within walking distance of all the downtown Pittsburgh has to offer. You can wow your guests with a stay at a modern, pet-friendly hotel, enjoy the scenic views from the hotel rooms, dine in the delicious Fl.2 Restaurant, and celebrate your wedding day in style! A classy, yet modern option, the Fairmont Hotel has beautiful naturally-lit steps for photographic opportunities, and a location that simply can’t be beat.
Lots of our couples also choose to get ready at the Fairmont Hotel, and we love the large rooms with views of the downtown skyscrapers and Mt. Washington overlooks. Your wedding photos will be modern, classic, and well-lit thanks to the Fairmont Hotel Downtown Pittsburgh!
Fairmont Ballroom Wedding Receptions
The main ballroom at the Fairmont can hold a large guest count, and can also be separated into smaller rooms as well – it all depends on how many people will be at your event! The ballroom itself is modern and bright, with a big wall of windows and high ceilings. I always love the room when it is uplit with colored reception lights, and this wedding venue has really made a name for itself in Pittsburgh by hosting some out-of-this-world events! If you and your wedding design team are thinking of something creative and new, the staff at the Fairmont will help to make your vision come true! Hang some chandeliers, flowers, lights, or more from the ceiling and bring in some amazing decor!
Typically, the cocktail hours at the Fairmont take place directly outside of the main ballroom. There are usually two bars, passed hors d’oeuvres, and mingling with guests. Often, the cookie table is also setup in this location later in the evening as well. Guests enter cocktail hour by going to the second floor and walking down the main meeting room hall. There is often an escort card table, gift box, and floral pieces in this area as well.
Where to take your wedding photos at the Fairmont Hotel? This one is easy, because there are tons of options! The hotel itself has ample natural light, which is a perfect rain plan on your wedding day! You can take advantage of the space in the lobby with the natural light as well as the signature main staircase. It’s wonderful!
In addition, I’ve photographed bridal parties and couples on the city streets surrounding the hotel quite often, since there is lots of Pittsburgh character within walking distance. Walk a few minutes in any direction, and you’ll have city views, urban vibes, and also some greenery to take advantage of. I love working at this venue, because it makes it easy for my brides and grooms to plan their wedding day timeline and photos. We can easily travel between the ceremony site (if not at the hotel) and the Fairmont for photos without having to stop in a lot of photo locations in-between.
