    Amazing beautiful night

    I wish the night would not of ended. It was amazing, all my guest loved it. The clipper and all the staff made it 100% perfect. During these rough times the communication was awesome. I didnt have to worry about anything as they took care of it all. Please book your wedding with them or any special event.

    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!

  • Lokmer Photography Inc. Wedding Photographers

    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.
