The Perfect Venue
The first time I walked in to Phipps was just about a year ago, and the moment I stepped in (with my Fiancé at the time, now husband) I KNEW I wanted to get married there. This venue fit our personality and definitely went with our non-traditional view on weddings/ our desire for interesting venues. We felt like we could truly be ourselves, and our guests LOVED it.
I have to give the most major props to our contact at Phipps, Caroline Walker. She was the most helpful person I've ever come in contact with (in pretty much my entire life) and made the planning process easy and fun. Even through small hiccups along the way, she did her best to make everything perfect and make sure that I was happy and comfortable. The planning process can get overwhelming for a bride/groom who are doing it themselves, but her help made everything possible and easy-going.
We can't wait to go back and visit in the future, there are so many memories made on our wedding night with all of our family and friends in attendance. Thank you Phipps!Sent on 11/23/2019

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
Phipps Conservatory Price Rates
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.
