Heinz Chapel Ceremony, Simply Styled

At Heinz Chapel we’ve been hosting weddings for over 70 years. We know exactly how much time and effort goes into planning and coordinating a wedding.The stress of guest lists, months of planning, and the price tag aren't for everyone. So we've taken our years of experience and created the Heinz Chapel Ceremony, Simply Styled. We are thrilled to offer a private, special, and memorable wedding while saving you time, stress, and money.

Check out the date and details to see if this contemporary twist fits your wedding day vision!

Many a boy or girl with an hour to spend between classes will find his way to the Chapel for meditation. For the time, the beauty of the structure will become part of him.
