I am beginning to plan a fall 2015 wedding in Pittsburgh from afar (Houston, TX). Currently, my fiance and I hope to have our ceremony at Heinz Chapel and reception at PNC Park in September 2015, but we're realizing that scheduling these two venues may prove to be almost impossible for a few reasons. (Heinz Chapel booking only opens on the first of the month one year prior to your desired date and you must pay the $1250 in full when you book it, and the Pirates 2015-2016 schedule will not be available in September of this year.) Short of double-paying for two dates at Heinz and/or double-paying deposits at PNC Park, we're not sure what to do!
Has anyone had the same experience and/or have any tips?! Also, does anyone have any insight about how much per person a PNC reception costs? I've heard a few ideas, but we're not actually able to go look at PNC until our next trip to Pittsburgh this May.
