Gateway Clipper Fleet

Celebrate your wedding day with your friends and family on a riverboat cruise, Gateway-Clipper-style! The Gateway Clipper Fleet is one of Pittsburgh's most unique sites for a wedding. The grand riverboats are most popular for hosting receptions, but couples can also arrange on-board ceremonies, which is a cool option.

The idea of a riverboat wedding reception is one of my personal favorites. The Gateway Clipper is just spacious enough for guests to spread out and enjoy themselves, but small enough to be inviting rather than intimidating. Warning: this will encourage mingling.

Enjoy the Pittsburgh skyline as you and your guests celebrate on the Gateway Clipper... beautiful on a starry night. Even if you're not blessed with the best of weather on your wedding day, there is plenty of shelter available.

The dazzling atmosphere of this venue will definitely have guests buzzing with excitement. A personalized DVD is a perfect way to capture the excitement of the night for years to come. Flashbox Wedding Videography provides a compact and portable video kiosk that can conveniently be set up anywhere on the Gateway Clipper during your reception. Guest will be lined up to leave you messages and send you their best wishes! (Tip: place the video kiosk by the bar for more entertaining memories...)

Location: Cruisin' up and down Pittsburgh's Three
Rivers (350 W. Station Square Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15219)

Pricing: Call for quote on reception
$1,800 for on-board ceremony

Capacity: Call for approximate capacity for receptions
Seats 200 for ceremony

Atmosphere: Classy, yet high-energy, fun, and unique

Boat weddings are beautiful. It provides some perfect opportunities for photography. The only draw back is that it gets rocky - the bride and groom better be sure-footed.

Amber said...

This is my kind of wedding, what an amazing idea! I'm sure guests would love it. Be sure to keep in mind that a sand unity ceremony would be the perfect alternative to the unity candle - imagine what the breeze from a moving cruise boat could do to the candle's flame...not something anyone wants to happen during such a symbolic ritual.

The best thing about this is all the options you have, that's usually the hardest part of the wedding. I can get everything in one- and in a unique and interesting setting.
