  • Omni William Penn Hotel

The Omni William Penn Hotel is my absolute favorite wedding venue in Pittsburgh. From a getting ready shoot in one of the stunning presidential suites to a first look in the grand lobby to an end-of-the-night photo session in one of the parks across the street, this venue offers a multitude of conveniently located backdrops that are truly breathtaking. The Urban Room is a perfect choice for the ceremony, though it requires a skilled photographer to achieve optimal lighting. Don't miss the opportunity to have your first look at the Mezzanine and then venture across the street to Mellon Green for stunning bridal party and family portraits.
