    Our Best Decision

    Our best decision was choosing the Heinz History Center. Their guidance and attention to detail not only created a memorable evening but also took a lot of stress off our shoulders. Maura and her team know what they are doing and strove to tailor the venue and event to fit our taste and dreams. The Heinz History Center fulfilled our hopes for a fun and distinctive evening.

    Excellent!

    The team at Heinz History Center made it so easy for a busy bride to plan a wedding. They were extremely helpful and responsive. They took care of details during the wedding I didn't even realize were necessary (for example, shuffling a large bridal party up into a secret room before being announced and making sure they had enough drinks and appetizers to have fun)!
