Having our wedding at Phipp's was the absolute best decision we made out of all of our wedding decisions. The staff was incredibly helpful throughout he entire process. Not to mention that we were planning our Pittsburgh wedding from 3,000 miles away in San Francisco, CA. David Swank was our coordinator at Phipp's throughout the whole process & was our day-of go to guy and made every step of the way a breeze. The day unfolded perfectly. David was incredibly responsive, organized, and helpful throughout the whole process which helped us out tremendously. The venue itself was just magical - like a dream come true! If you're considering if you should have your wedding at Phipp's, I'd recommend it without a doubt. It's the best investment you'll make for your entire wedding! XoSent on 10/03/2017

Flawlessly beautiful and elegant... with great service!
Phipps Conservatory was the best choice we could have made. The venue is gorgeous and elegant and made for the perfect setting for our special day. The prices were on par with other vendors (like country clubs), so the choice was easy for us! Our guests were in awe at the beauty of the Broderie Room and the food was also delicious. We got a harpist and it made the Broderie Room even more elegant (Stephanie Miller of Music for Life of Pittsburgh. We also highly recommend her, as she is extremely talented and really great to work with!)Sent on 05/08/2019
Caroline was our wedding planner at Phipps and she made everything go flawlessly. We are so thankful for her help during the planning and the actual wedding. We will have perfect memories of our special day because of this venue and their staff.

A Pittsburgh standard of excellence in the historic Oakland section of the city. Several options for your wedding or event.
I have photographed many weddings in the past at The Phipps. The beauty of nature in the various rooms and the outdoor environment all make for a beautiful event. Rachel and staff offer weddings, receptions and special parties for your special needs; and the professionalism is nothing short of superb which is expected from a first class venue. This is a gorgeous venue for some remarkable photos which our studio has created over the years. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
I have found Phipps Conservatory to be an excellent venue with a staff who works hard to meet all the needs not only of their couples, but also those who attend as well.
