Terri and David planned an evocative, fun and fast-paced wedding day at Heinz Chapel and Mansions on Fifth. Terri wore a stunning gown from Israeli designer Galia Lahav through Boca Raton Bridal. David was looking sharper than sharp in a gorgeous cream-color tuxedo. Their gathering of intimate family and friends made a day full of warm feelings and togetherness. Reception entertainment was provided by a Vermont-based interpretive dance team.  Delightful wedding cake was provided by Vanilla Pastry Studio. Laid-back but no less impressive DJ service was delivered by Nick Stephanovic 2ndIINone Productions.  Highlight images below are by OvationImages.com, Pittsburgh’s Fine Wedding Photographer Since 2001.

Heinz Chapel Closed – Alternative Cathedral Ideas From Ovation Images

With Heinz Memorial Chapel  closed January 1- May 10, 2015, you may find yourself looking for alternatives. As you would expect, we at Ovation Images, Pittsburgh’s most-trusted wedding photographer since 2001, have some suggestions for you!

Of course, if you are having a Catholic wedding ceremony, then you have your choice of cathedral-style churches from St. Paul Cathedral to St. Mary Of The Mount. The switch will be simpler if you are having a Catholic ceremony.

But if your wedding service is non-denominational, you have a different problem entirely.  One of our 2015 brides was caught in this closure and she was kind enough to share her thoughts: “The reason I liked Heinz Chapel was the interior style–the cathedral look–and I wanted to keep that a part of my wedding.” Her suggestions for cathedral-style alternatives to Heinz Chapel are

East Liberty Presbyterian Church – http://cathedralofhope.org/ – “This was one of the closest in looks to Heinz Chapel, however you or close family have to be a member of the church and have to go to classes to get married.”
Downtown First Presbyterian Church – http://www.fpcp.org/
Trinity Cathedral Downtown – http://www.trinitycathedralpgh.org/
Calvary United Methodist Church (north shore) – http://www.calvarypgh.com/
Smithfield UCC – http://www.smithfieldchurch.org/

“I really liked Smithfield UCC because it has a little of that gothic look and is brighter than the other churches we saw (less wood). You do not have to be a member and you can bring in a different officiant if you want (it just need to be approved). They seemed less structured, which we really like.”

Other suggestions will be in our next blog post–watch this (cyber)space!

NOTE: In case you missed it, this notice is from the Heinz Memorial Chapel web site:  ” Heinz Memorial Chapel will be closed from January 1, 2015 to May 10, 2015 and will reopen on May 11, 2015.  This is to allow for the installation of a climate control system. We will not be taking reservations for any events, including weddings, during that time. The climate control system is an important part of plans for the preservation of the building, its pipe organ, and woodwork.  Thank you for your understanding as we undertake this historic project”
