My daughter had always wanted to wed here, so we made it happen, many years ago. It was well worth the wait. A few of us went back to recapture the experience. Well, of course, she's divorced, now.

Lovely spot next to so many other iconic landmarks and good eating places! The Chapel won't take long to see, but is beautiful and worth the visit while checking out the Cathedral of Learning!

We attended a wedding at Heinz Chapel last weekend. It was a beautiful place for a wedding. I understand that you must be a Pitt grad to get married there.

A perfect follow-up to the Cathedral of Learning & the docent was very helpful & knowledgeable, e.g. recommending a great used bookstore in the area & restaurant.
