Amazing experience with the Gateway Clipper
My husband and I live out of town and were looking for a venue that had a lot included so there was minimal for us to do! I was also looking for something that was not a traditional ballroom, as it was both of our second marriages. Not long after we booked, the Covid-19 pandemic started. Dan, the wedding coordinator, was amazing! He was quick at responding, and once we got closer and restrictions changed, he worked with management to figure out how to best help us still get married-giving us multiple options to choose from. Having to do minimal with the vendors already contracted with them was perfect for our out of town situation. The day of the wedding the staff was AMAZING! Dan and the rest of the staff had taken care of everything. It was perfect. We would highly recommend the Gateway Clipper!Sent on 07/19/2020
Gateway Clipper Fleet's reply:Thank you so much Misty! It was such a pleasure to work with you to ensure that your wedding was still able to take place with us during all of this craziness!

Magical winter wedding!
We chose the gateway clipper because it was an all inclusive wedding venue. We loved how everything from the cake, to the dj was already picked and we didn’t have to worry about any of it. I don’t know how I would have done it without them. Super helpful every step of the way! We had the most amazing day! Dj was amazing, cake was amazing, and the back drop of the city was magical. Our families absolutely loved it. “The most memorable wedding” is what we’ve been hearing from everyone.

I have photographed a number of professional non profit events on the Gateway Clipper and have found their staff to be friendly and professional, the food served has always been wonderful and the boat atmosphere is a lot of fun!
The Gateway Clipper Fleet is truly an enjoyable experience. I have photographed many weddings on the Clipper and the beautiful views, the rivers, the city of Pittsburgh in the background, the view from the deck and especially night time is quite an unforgettable experience. My wedding customers and the guests actually thought we were on the high seas. It was an experience that I will always remember. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
