    Working With Jessica is a dream

    As a vendor who has worked at this club for years, I can tell you that they make it so easy to help create a fabulous day for each bride. Their staff is helpful and friendly. The last thing a vendor needs are a grumpy group of people as you are setting up. Jessica offers to help in any way she can. I was lucky enough to be a guest at a wedding recently. They go all out!

    Wedding Reception

    I recently had my wedding reception at the university club, and it was nothing short of perfection! I had a destination wedding and then flew into Pittsburgh to have a small reception with our closest family and friends. Jessica, the coordinator, went above and beyond to make our day absolutely perfect! She was so helpful, always available to answer my questions and extremely accommodating with changes in order to make the day unforgettable.
    All of the guests were amazed at how gorgeous the ballroom was and how fantastic the food was!
