          Heinz Chapel Changes its Wedding Reservations Policy

On the first working day of each month, the Heinz Chapel staff takes phone calls from couples who hope to reserve a date for their Heinz Chapel wedding in the same month of the following year.  

For many years, the earliest the chapel accepted reservations was one year in advance, by the month. But as of January 4, 2016, couples can reserve wedding dates and times for both one year and two years in advance, still by the month, as follows:

               The change is driven by a growing trend that many couples are taking two years or more to plan their nuptials.  Of course, couples are welcome to schedule their wedding from all available times as long as the desired date and time are not already reserved. 

            The non-denominational chapel is owned and operated by the University of Pittsburgh and is pleased to now offer a 15% discount for those couples, if one or both of them holds a degree from the University of Pittsburgh. Also, as of January 4, 2016, a University affiliation will no longer be required to schedule a wedding at the Chapel. 

            Dates, times, and fees remain unchanged, while dates and times for 2016 are still available. Please check the Heinz Chapel Web site at or call the chapel office 412-624-4157 for more information.
