First Class Experience
We recently held our wedding reception at Shannopin Country Club. Jacquie Ricketts the Wedding Coordinator is awesome! Jacquie has 25+ years experience in planning weddings at Shannopin Country Club. She's so calm, cool, and organized which helped make the process super easy and fun for us and our family. She was with us every step of the way to help with details and make suggestions of how we could carry out our wishes. It was literally like getting a free wedding planner included. She made suggestions of DJ's, florists, cakes, hotels, and much more. Jacquie's experience shines bright through her staff - who were amazing at providing dedicated attention to each of our 185 guests.Sent on 06/05/2019
The club itself is absolutely beautiful. The guests loved the views of the Pittsburgh skyline from the patio off of the ballroom. The course looks awesome, and the grounds surrounding were very well maintained. Guests also enjoyed the different areas to converse during cocktail hour - some liked hanging on the patio at the outside bar - while others chilled indoors at the lounge bar. The variety of rooms at your reception will allow the guests to achieve their ultimate comfort level. The ballroom features a traditional country club charm paired with a modern vibe that will please all of your guests. The Chef at the club is truly a professional who is equipped to impress. One of the first things current members told us was how amazing the food was at Shannopin. Chef will customize and suggest a menu and work with you if you want to do something a little different. We choose the Braised Short Ribs, Tuscan Chicken, and Herb Crusted Cod for our entrees. My mouth is watering just typing the entrees. One of your favorite parts of the planning process, will be the food tasting. If your nice, Jacquie will hook you up with some amazing wine to go along with your tasting experience. Following the wedding some guests even called to tell us that it was the best piece of chicken they had ever eaten. We are totally overwhelmed at the positive feedback we have been receiving from the event. The premium bar service is unlike any wedding I have ever attended. With over 8+ wine options, 10+ beer options, top shelf liquors - your guests will have no problem finding a drink and if they are I am confident one of the bartenders will make it happen.
Throughout our wedding planning process we were very focused on delivering a first-class experience to our guests. Shannopin Country Club was the right fit for us, because of their commitment to first-class service. After researching the club we found the member satisfaction to be extremely high compared to other clubs and one of the few Pittsburgh Country Clubs with a skyrocketing membership increase. The clubs recent success climb, paired with 99+ years (est.1920) of unparalleled commitment to service, we knew they'd help us deliver the most perfect day one could imagine - and that they certainly did. I highly recommend Shannopin Country Club for your wedding reception. Please feel free to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information regarding our experience.

Excellent venue with the stellar Jacquie
Jacquie the coordinator of Shannopin’s events did everything to customize, accommodate, and professionally manage our wedding day from special food and drink orders to all the small touches and necessary adjustments that made our ceremony on the beautiful grounds before the days rainstorm go off without any issues. The price of the venue for the quality was far better than anywhere else in Pittsburgh- oh and that view that can’t be beat!! The food is incredible and so is the staff; they also went out of their way to help with my setup and other requests I had. My family keeps telling me it was the best wedding they have ever been to. I would whole heartedly recommend Shannopin.Sent on 07/13/2019

Excellent Venue for Wedding reception
My son had his wedding reception at Shannopin Country Club on June 8, 2019. It is a great venue with lots of space for guests to relax and enjoy themselves. There were 3 bars set-up and the service staff were attentive and polite. The food was prepared and presented well. Jacquie Ricketts, the Events Coordinator, is excellent at overseeing the event from planning through the day of the party. She is flexible, knowledgable and courteous. Truly I knew we were in good hands and things ran smoothly. Many of our guests complimented us on our choice and expressed their delight after attending the reception. I highly recommend this venue for anyone considering having their wedding reception at Shannopin Country Club. Alane PalmerSent on 06/20/2019
