Rachel and Linden Hall are the BEST!

Where do I begin? Working with Rachel and Linden Hall was an absolute dream. I cannot recommend this venue enough. We had a mansion reception and everything was beautiful. We had to postpone twice because of the pandemic and Rachel was understanding and supportive throughout the process. She was so receptive and accommodating to our particular needs and was a joy to work with. Why get married in the city (Pittsburgh), when the views and accommodations are better (and cheaper) at Linden Hall?! The value you get at Linden Hall is incredible. The food is absolutely DELICIOUS and the staff are kind and professional. Our morning after breakfast was awesome too! Linden Hall is a hidden gem and a wonderful wedding venue spot, I wouldn't have went anywhere else!!

The BEST Ever!!!

Where to even begin.... the venue speaks for itself. The mansion, the garden, the tent, and everything were fantastic and we could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding! Now to talk about Rachel! Rachel is the BEST. She was a lifesaver throughout the course of planning our wedding!!! She is so enthusiastic about her job and on top of everything that it made the whole process super simple! I would 100% recommend Linden Hall and Rachel to anyone that is considering this venue for their wedding!!!

The most wonderful wedding venue ever!

I am not big on writing reviews, but I had to write one for this place. We had my daughters "wedding weekend" there a month ago. I call it wedding weekend because we had the rehearsal and dinner Friday night,and most of us stayed until Sunday.
Rachel walked us through the rehearsal outside as we planned to have it, but also in the mansion in case of rain. Then we went down to the patio outside of the restaurant for the back yard bbq dinner. Everything was wonderful! We stayed later than I'm sure the staff planned on. They were wonderful about it. They put the rest of our champagne punch in a pitcher for us and even brought lanterns out to us as they left for the evening.
We all went to a wonderful breakfast the next morning before starting our day.
Sadly it did rain for the ceremony, but again the incredible staff lead by Rachel got the mansion set up quickly and efficiently. It wasn't what we planned, but we were so happy there was a plan B for us. The cocktail hour was amazing. Rachel added a lot of little touches for it as well as the tent reception that followed.
The rain stopped and the views from the mansion are nothing short of amazing
The food at the cocktail hour and the reception could not have possibly been better. I had many tell me it was the best food they ever had at a wedding.
Everything ran so smoothly even with our weather glitch. And again the staff at Linden Hall is fantastic.
This was our youngest daughter, so our third wedding, and it was by far our favorite. The other two were beautiful, but this one was fabulous. If I were to host another, I would absolutely have it here again. My one friend told me that next week that she's been to a lot of weddings and this was the most beautiful one she ever attended.
Anyone considering here should put all doubts out of your mind and book it. You will never find a more wonderful venue!
I wish I could have thanked every staff member, but I'm so very grateful for Rachel. You are amazing!!!
Thank you for making our dreams come true!!

For as long as I can remember, I've enjoyed creating beautiful spaces. Whether decorating a room or accessorizing an outfit, I loved helping others cultivate and express a sense of style. Intuitively, I knew that aesthetics could impact happiness. I also liked engaging in projects that required an eye for detail.

Since I was in high school, my friends came to me for fashion advice. As I got older, my family and friends often asked me to plan parties and other special events.

When I graduated from high school, I decided I wanted to help others during the unhappiest of times. I majored in business and mortuary science. I became a licensed funeral director. As a funeral director for over a decade, I carefully planned each detail ensuring that services and memorials both honored and captured the essence of the deceased loved one. On numerous occasions, clients would ask me if I planned other types of events (e.g. parties or weddings). I was asked to plan a first birthday party for a friend and realized that it was time to transition to helping others during the happiest of times.

It was serendipitous that Linden Hall was hiring an event planner. My transition from funeral director to wedding coordinator was seamless. Due in large part to the fact that I grew up in Dawson. My parents grew up in Dawson. The mansion and pool were local landmarks. As children, my siblings and I swam in the pool, walked the grounds, and even gave holiday tours in the mansion. I was raised with sincere regard for the property and the vision of Sarah B. Cochran, the feisty coal baron's wife who designed and built Linden Hall. Sarah B. Cochran was a visionary. She was a poor local girl who married a coal baron, toured the world, and brought her love for art and philosophy here to Dawson. She was a philanthropist and eventually a respected businesswoman. Her passion for aesthetics is reflected in every gorgeous detail including the tree-lined entrances. How could I not love working here?

My philosophy is that each event should capture the essence of the couple and tell their story. Sarah B. Cochran left her mark on Linden Hall's exquisite grounds. We pride ourselves in offering a venue rich in history and uniqueness. While you are focusing on your vows, I vow to work tirelessly to support you by coordinating an event that reflects your uniqueness as a couple.
