Wedding Venue: Renaissance Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh

I have shot numerous weddings at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh, PA. What I like about the venue is the staircase. The staircase looks awesome and makes for great wedding portraits. It reminds me of a Disney grand staircase. Who doesn’t want that for their wedding? The location is great too. It is near many major portrait session locations like that in the Northshore, the riverwalk, Point State Park fountain. The venue has a good view of PNC Park. Food here is great as well and I haven’t had a bad meal yet. Being a hotel, you can have a room to get ready and to crash at the end of the night. Basically, everything is nearby and that’s what I like in a wedding venue.

This is where they have the ceremony at the Renaissance Hotel.
