Amazing Wedding Venue
Everything about our reception at the Heinz History Center was incredible! We had our cocktail hour on the 1st floor (Great Hall) and our reception on the 5th floor (Mueller Center). Shelby and the staff at the Heinz History Center were amazing and so helpful in all of the planning stages all the way through to the end of the reception. Shelby was so communicative in the months leading up to the wedding and just made us so at ease. We were so calm on our wedding day knowing that they had everything covered for us. We highly recommend the Heinz History Center for any wedding! Thank you so much Shelby and team!Sent on 09/15/2019

Best venue we could have asked for!
My husband and I were recently married at the Heinz History Center in September 2019. The planning process was so easy (well as easy as wedding planning can be) thanks to the help of the Shelby Starks and the other Heinz History Center staff. They were there with suggestions and answers every step of the way. Everything on our big day turned out beautifully and was just so unique! If I could do all of it over again, I would 100% choose Heinz History Center no matter what!Sent on 10/25/2019
