You can have whatever style of reception you want with a Catholic wedding, it is completely up to you. I think your friend is wrong.

You don’t even need to have a huge wedding to get married in church – just you, your Fiance, witnesses and the priest/deacon is all you really NEED 🙂

Sorry, not from Pittsburgh. But I wanted to chime in that I think your friend is wrong. A casual, outdoor reception after a Catholic mass would be great!

Not sure how close you are to the city, however I wanted the same thing. Have you looked into the Zoo (i know they have an outside area/tent you can have plus its BYOB which usually helps cut cost)? We are getting married next June at Soldiers and Sailors in Oakland and they have a gorgeous patio you can rent out in the front of the building? Very reasonable too. Hope that helps!

If you are in the city, you can rent space at any of the parks. I would look at Schenley Cafe. They already have the tent!! Or, the University Club at Pitt has a roof top balcony. Then there is Schenley Plaza (the carousel!!)And, if you have a good amount of money, I’m pretty sure the Phipps has an outdoor space. And, the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts has a tent set up on their balcony already.

Good luck!!

Our ceremony is outside at Roselea Farm in Moon.  I know they have done receptions before and I believe you’re open to choosing your own caterer and byob.  Here’s the websitehttp://www.roseleafarm.com/
