Crowne Plaza Suites Pittsburgh South Wedding | Wedding Receptions

Crowne Plaza Suites Pittsburgh South wedding days provide best-in-class accommodations for a truly elegant hotel wedding day experience. Located in the Pittsburgh South Hills, twenty minutes from Downtown Pittsburgh and minutes from South Hills Village Mall. The Crowne Plaza has multiple Ballrooms to accommodate any wedding reception size and features an outdoor courtyard that’s perfect for outdoor wedding ceremonies.

For creative portraits on site, my recommendation is the hotel’s small grassy fountain that’s adjacent to the outdoor courtyard. Throughout the majority of the afternoon & early evenings, that area remains shaded, providing an excellent spot for natural light portraits. As a second option recommendation for off-site wedding portraits, there is a nearby park that’s only minutes away with a walking trail through a thick patch of woods that provides a vibrant setting for stylistic outdoor portraits. If you do plan on having an all day wedding experience at Crowne Plaza Suites Pittsburgh South you can rest assured that you don’t have to travel far for mid-day bridal party portraits.

Beginning your wedding day prep at the Crown Plaza is also an ideal setting for beautiful photographs. Aside from their traditional bridal suite the hotel also offers a wide open bridal prep room that provides more than enough space for your bridesmaids, multiple hair & makeup artists, and for all of your bags and dresses. Their bridal suite itself is a fantastic space with great lighting for photographing the bridal dress, wedding details & decor, as well as lovely bridal portraits.

I recommend taking a scouting visit to the Crowne Plaza Hotel & Suites ahead of your wedding day just to view the nearby park and courtyard fountain area to decide what location elements suit your vision & style for wedding day portraits.
