Picturesque Park Venue - Everything You Need in One Space!
I did a lot of research on wedding venues when we first got engaged (nearly 2 years before our wedding date!) and the Mayernik Center was at the top of my list!Sent on 09/28/2019
They had it all - a park setting nestled 20 minutes outside the city with a covered pavilion for the ceremony and beautiful indoor venue for the reception (complete with a wrap-around porch and log cabin vibe). We started out with one event coordinator, but ended up with Kelly (their original coordinator) who was a pure joy to work with! She went above and beyond in so many ways, and it felt great to work with such a professional during the entire process.
If you want a nature-filled wedding, close to hotels and just far enough from the city... The Mayernik Center is the place for you!

Amazing, Rustic Venue
If you are looking for a rustic, cabin in the woods type of feel- this is your place! Located on Avonworth Park, a short drive from Pittsburgh. We were lucky enough to be able to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony (pavilion would have been the rain plan). We worked with Sara B and she was a huge help with planning and was always quick to respond to our emails. She was there for the rehearsal and for the ceremony/ reception to keep things running smoothly. We were able to set everything up the day before the wedding, which was amazing (only worked because we had a Friday wedding) The only downside to this venue is that there is a list of three caterers you must pick and you need to buy your own alcohol (they have bartenders). Neither of these things were an issue for us though! Another huge positive was that they had wooden slabs for centerpieces, table numbers, some signs, and an arch for the ceremony that we could rent for an extra change. Everything coordinated beautifully.Sent on 10/08/2019
So many family members and friends have been talking non stop about how absolutely beautiful the venue was. Seriously it’s so unique. Many said it was one of the nicest weddings they have been too, which was so great to hear. We found it to be extremely reasonably priced and were able to do our whole wedding for under $20,000. Definitely check this place out.

Amazing venue for both our ceremony and reception!
Sara was phenomenal!! Everything went so smoothly and beautifully. Remos was the perfect choice for our food too! Best day ever at the best venue!Sent on 09/30/2019
An absolutely stunning venue with friendly staff and a well put together event. I photographed a wedding there several weeks ago and the photographs came out beautifully with their rustic wood interior and gorgeous grounds to work from. I look forward to working here again.
Our studio has photographed a number of weddings at the Mayernik Center. The rustic charm of the building with its spacious interiors were well suited for a beautiful wedding event or special party. We captured some gorgeous photos outdoors of our wedding couple on the small bride and the natural setting of the creek and various landscapes around the facility. We would recommend highly The Mayernik Center for a truly nature oriented venue. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
