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

Beautiful and Affordable Spot for Intimate Wedding
We rented the Broderie room for 90 minutes for our intimate wedding ceremony. It was beautiful and affordable! Our coordinator Sahara was helpful and responsive. I really couldn't believe that one of the top wedding venues in the country could be within our small budget.Sent on 06/25/2019

Broderie Room - Ceremony Only
Phipps was a phenomenal location to have our ceremony! It is absolutely beautiful all on it's own. Caroline, our coordinator, was wonderful to work with! She was so helpful and insightful and answered all of our endless questions.Sent on 06/01/2019

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.
