They're simply best!

They have a reputation for running a tight ship and they do not disappoint! All of the ladies at Heinz were responsive and great to work with throughout the planning process. They answered all of our questions and ran a smooth production the day of our wedding.

Amazing memory

As two Pitt grads, we have always dreamed of having our wedding ceremony at the famous Heinz chapel - and it truly lived up to the hype. During the hay day of covid, we were disappointed with how harsh the restrictions on capacity were and ended up changing to a later date. Thankfully in July we were allowed to have all the guests we wanted, no face masks when walking down the aisle, and an overall amazing experience. Melissa and her team were great to work with and ran our rehearsal and day of seamlessly. We are so glad we waited to have it at Heinz chapel because it really made the day special.
