  • Megan and Melissa are absolute rock stars!! We switched venues about 45 days before our wedding and they worked so hard for us! I like to say they helped us plan 3.5 weddings because of the constant changes made with COVID restrictions. They were kind, caring, hard-working, detail- oriented and efficient. They knew what to do, when to do it and how to do it! We could not be more thankful to the two of them for helping our day go off without a hitch!! We had the most perfect day and it was all thanks to them!!

  • The Pennsylvanian was absolutely gorgeous for my daughter's wedding. We did have to get all the vendors in order for this evening to happen but it was well worth it! The cocktail hour was held outside and the main event was held inside. We had up lighting on all of the columns and added limited curtains around the room. The dance floor was immense! It was a wonderful evening!

  • The Pennsylvanian was our daughters dream venue for her wedding reception! It is an amazing beautiful venue! Bob the leasing manager was great to work with. We used Rania's catering and it was outstanding!! We received so many compliments! The rotunda and concourse is truly breathtaking once it is transformed by all the vendors!! Our guests are still talking about how breathtaking the venue and entire reception was! If you want a reception fit for a princess then this is the venue for you!!

  • The Pennsylvanian is an absolutely beautiful wedding reception venue! The architecture is unlike any other venue, and the outside rotunda is to die for! The staff at the Pennsylvanian was extremely easy and fun to work with and our wedding would not have been what it was without the help of the 2 wedding coordinators! They went above and beyond to make our wedding so special and we are extremely happy with our decision to have our reception at the Pennsylvanian!

  • The Pennsylvanian provided a classy, formal venue for my wedding reception. Everyone there was very responsive to my questions and special requests. While you have to abide by their rules, they worked with me throughout the wedding planning process to make sure that everything fell into place. It is an absolutely gorgeous venue!

  • Beautiful and unique location for our wedding reception. Actually the atmosphere including the outdoor cocktail hour was top notch...actually amazingly beautiful. I recommend up lighting as it certainly added to the beauty of the room. The venue is very special. It is a little pricey as you need to rent the tables and chairs from an outside vendor. Only negative is the speeches were difficult to hear because of the vaulted ceiling. I recommend you do the speeches early in the outside cocktail area for better sound. However, I will add the beauty of the Pennsylvania overcame the sound challenge.

  • Overall, my wedding at the Pennsylvanian was absolutely gorgeous. The rotunda and concourse are breathtaking. Rania's catering was outstanding- we received so many compliments. Only a few negatives- the acoustics are really challenging and it was hard to hear the speeches and when the DJ was talking. Also, the venue can get a big pricey since you have to order everything to be brought in. You are also limited as to what vendors you are able to use. Other than that, it was perfect! We received so many compliments on the venue!

  • With the uncertainty of Covid-19 and not being able to work normal hours or to have the option to work extra in order to save for a wedding, this company would not refund a deposit even though we decided to cancel 367 days before our original date. If Covid-19 would not have happened, we would still be having our wedding as planned. I understand that a non-refundable deposit would not be returned if we would have changed our minds or called the wedding off for other reasons, but this is an extreme circumstance. The response from the event coordinator was very professional and cold, apologizing for hearing that we had to cancel, but then just referred to their contract where they said that it was a non-refundable deposit. We were very excited to have our ceremony and reception there, but now we are just disappointed that they could not return even a portion of our deposit because of a Covid-19 related cancellation. We would not recommend that anyone plan a wedding here until they a... Read more

    Hi Jessica, We know that this is a difficult time for all couples, families, and professionals. Because your event is over a year away, we are not able to cancel your event due to COVID-19, but did offer to transfer your event to a new date or to apply your initial payment to a ceremony only rental. Your response is disappointing, but we hope that you and Lee find the perfect venue and have a beautiful wedding. Best of luck, Megan DeBertrand Events Director for The Pennsylvanian

  • We had a wonderful event with many great memories. But we would highly recommend considering other options if you are looking for a venue. The rest room facilities are not very nice, you have very limited options in selecting rentals (so they charge very high fees), the acoustics of the room make the music presentation a challenge (unless you rent extra equipment at a high cost) and there is no place to park. Considering how high the rental fee for this venue is, you might want to carefully consider other options for comparison.

  • The Pennsylvanian was an amazingly beautiful venue that provided a historic backdrop for our special day. Bob in the leasing office was great to work with. We did run into the same problem as others regarding the sound within the main room. We highly recommend a dj or band who will use speakers around the entire outside of the venue. One major issue we did have was with their only approved lighting vendor - ADS Lighting. We paid nearly $1000 for purple uplighting inside which you could not see (we think the main lighting was left on inside but would think ADS would have known to turn it off) and a monogram outside which unfortunately was set into the window. Andy, the owner of ADS, indicated that when he left it was set on the brick but must have fallen down to the window where no one could see it...this was very disappointing. Overall, we were very happy with the Pennsylvanian and couldn't have imagined a more wonderful venue.

  • The Pennsylvanian is a breathtaking venue for a reception (and wedding) in the city of Pittsburgh. This historical worth is priceless in itself. The rotunda provides for a cocktail hour outside, a ceremony location and a wonderful backdrop for your special day. We hosted our cocktail hour outside. The Grand Concourse has beautiful architecture and an awesome marble floor - perfect for any color or themed event. Kelly Whitmer, our contact for the venue, was probably the most helpful person that I encountered through my wedding planning. If something slipped my mind, she'd send me a reminder e-mail and she was ALWAYS available for questions. She went above and beyond the call of duty when she helped me out with the problems I was having with my entertainment service. She contacted them and cleared all the concerns I had regarding the acoustics in the Grand Concourse. While the pricing for the rental is high - the setting it provides definitely made for an unforgettable event. The only ne... Read more

  • The Pennsylvanian is an absolutely gorgeous reception venue! The rotunda was perfect for hors d'ouevres and cocktails and the grand concourse is truly stunning. However, it is important to note that all you are getting is the space. Also, the management company is fairly rigid and sometimes difficult to work with. That said, it is probably the most beautiful indoor reception venue in Pittsburgh and is worth the added hassle.
