Senator John Heinz History Center Weddings
Heinz History Center is the perfect place for the absolutely unique Pittsburgh wedding! You can host both your ceremony and reception in the space, and the views from the upstairs balcony are absolutely wonderful! Your guests will enjoy roaming the museum, and the decor is one-of-a-kind.
If you choose to host your wedding ceremony or reception in the main floor Great Hall, your guests will have scenery such as the old Pittsburgh Trolley, Heinz Ketchup Truck, or Roller Coaster cart to enjoy. This space is incredibly creative in it’s own right, so you may not have to worry a lot about additional decor! This space is also used for cocktail hours if you rent the entire facility, which helps to keep your guests separated from the upstairs room until it’s really reception time!
The Great Hall seats about 150-180 comfortably, and is definitely one of the most unique spaces in the entire Heinz History Center museum!
On the fifth floor of the Heinz History Center is a large ballroom, big enough for large wedding guest counts. You can “dress up” this room however you’d like, and a large set of windows overlooks the rivers and Downtown Pittsburgh. Guests can party on the large dance floor, and the space is big enough for a band.
In addition, there is an outdoor balcony area from this space that offers views of downtown Pittsburgh, and sometimes guests like to hang out here on summery evenings to enjoy a drink and some conversation.
Wedding Photos at the Heinz History Center
I have photographed portraits in lots of areas in-and-around the Heinz History Center. First, starting inside of the museum there is the trolley, which is a signature backdrop for a wedding picture at the museum. A must! There is also the Racer car, and the large staircase for photos! I also love photographing my couples on the upstairs Mueller Center balcony.
In addition, the Heinz History Center is right in the Strip District and very close to downtown Pittsburgh, so you are easily accessible to the rivers, greenery, and the unique streets of the Strip District.
