Spectacular Wedding Venue

My wife and I had an incredible experience working with the Scottish Rite Cathedral to make our wedding, truly a dream come true! From the staff, food, and venue to the outstanding service we received, we have only positive things to say about the SRC. Sarah was so helpful and even let me utilize the space for our wife and I's one-year anniversary. She was so surprised and made it another unforgettable moment for us. The venue is beautiful and well-kept. It will now always hold a special place in our heart!

Truly A Dream Wedding Venue

This place is incredibly beautiful!! We cannot say enough good things about our experience with The Scottish Rite. From the very first correspondence all the way through to our event we dealt with a profession team that truly cares about their client's experience. The planning process was efficient and detail-oriented making sure we were covering all our bases, but also making sure we were spending our time effectively. Grace and the rest of the team are excellent at their jobs and made sure we had the absolute perfect wedding experience. This venue speak for itself. All of my guests were asking "How did you find this place?". My absolute favorite part of doing the first dance on the main floor with all of the guests over-looking on the balcony, truly magical. Could not have imagined a more spectacular venue. Thank you for all the great work you did leading up to and during our special day!!!

Beautiful, affordable venue

The Scottish Rite Cathedral is truly the most wonderful, gorgeous, and stunning gem you will find in the Pittsburgh region. Best of all, the venue is incredibly affordable. We would have been able to have the wedding ceremony and reception in this stunning venue for the same price as a fire hall that really looked like a school cafeteria. I mention that because many times you will see venues advertise that they are affordable and then you see the venue rate is $10,000, but not here. When you walk into the Scottish Rite Cathedral you will be in awe of this beautiful and historical venue. In the lobby, tall columns adorn the huge room with vaulted ceiling and stained glass light fixtures. The female restroom in the lobby would be a beautiful space for the bride to get ready. We fell in love with this venue, but unfortunately we were one of the couples who had to cancel our wedding at the last minute due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Cathedral was incredible throughout the whole process and they were happy to help us however they could. We decided not to reschedule our event at the Cathedral and had a very small wedding instead. With that said, Dawn and the Scottish Rite Cathedral team were truly fantastic to work with. Dawn was incredibly kind and answered all of our questions promptly. You should 100% tour this venue, you will fall in love with it.
