Located in Pittsburgh's South Side, J. Verno Studios provides an urban chic wedding experience. Unlike traditional wedding venues, J. Verno Studios doesn't have the same old ballroom decor. Instead, the venue provides a series of contemporary apartments decorated with clean lines and modern furnishings.
Receptions can be held in one of four studio spaces or a couple can rent out the entire space for a large gala affair.
Studio A provides the most flexible event space. The open concept studio can be staged in many ways in order to accommodate whatever the couple needs to create the perfect wedding day.
This elegant loft space features white walls with red and yellow accents. The studio's white curved bar adds a modern flair to the room. A wood floor completes the clean look of this space. The studio's kitchen area adds to the modern feel with white cabinets and blue walls. Studio B's center stage area would make a perfect space for a buffet or drink station.
Studio C features an overflow room with an exposed stone wall. With its red accents against the stone, the room's city chic vibe would be a perfect backdrop to a contemporary wedding reception.
Level 3 Studio.
With gleaming hardwood floors, brick walls and frosted block windows, Level 3 Studio provides a stylish backdrop for any wedding reception. A modern kitchen area for caterers to use completes the space.

J. Vernos Studios is by far the best wedding reception studio in Pittsburgh. My husband and I knew that we HAD to have our wedding there from the second we stepped foot into the building. J Vernos is contemporary and chic......it gave us a totally different wedding experience. Compliments about our venue are still coming......family and friends stating "this is the coolest wedding venue we've ever seen." We seated 200 people comfortably within the studio. Paul, building manager, is WONDERFUL to work with. He knows how J Vernos runs inside and out. He helped us with planning, floor lay out, setup, and tear down......there was never a time that Paul didn't promptly get back to us about questions we had. We opted to get the photo booth and it was a HIT!! Jay has a whole entire room dedicated to props (the most props I've ever seen at a photo booth). The photo booth was so fun and so popular there was a line to get pictures taken (which the guests didn't mind because they played with all the props while waiting). The only word of advice I have related to J. Vernos is you MUST book far in advance ( at least 13 months). We went and viewed the venue, went home and discussed budget, and by the time we called back (24 hours later) our date was already booked. However, luckily we were still able to book another date......I couldn't see myself celebrating our marriage anywhere else.Sent on 12/02/2015

We had our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at J Verno Studios on June 1, 2013. Wow, I can't believe how awesome our wedding was. This venue is incredible. From the outside the building looks like an industrial warehouse, but once you step inside you will be blown away. Super modern and chic. Guests were in love with the space and so were we! So happy we chose to have our wedding here. It felt like we were in LA or NYC! Another huge plus was the multiple great photo opp areas inside and outside the building. I can't wait to see our photos. The venue also provided all the uplighting which was soft and added the perfect touch. If you are looking for a non-traditional, modern, unique, hip venue for your wedding, hands down J Verno Studios is the only place in Pittsburgh!Sent on 06/06/2013

We actively looked for a venue that would combine our personalities and allow us to come up with a wedding that was "us." J. Verno Studios did just that. Jay and Paul were wonderful to work with. The venue was beautiful and unique, with separate areas for cocktail hour, dinner, and our ceremony. Our guests loved the photo booth and the ability to project it onto the video wall and monitors in the reception area.Sent on 04/07/2014
Being able to bring our own vendors and alcohol was another huge perk, and a large part of the reason that we selected J. Verno Studios. We can't thank you enough for helping us make our wedding day beautiful and special!
