Pittsburgh Wedding Reception Venue-NovaSoul Photography


The Perfect Venue

I am so glad I booked my wedding with the gateway Clipper. I had my wedding and reception on board the Princess of the Gateway Clipper. It was around Christmas time, so those decorations were already up along with added decorations for the wedding. I was very impressed with how beautiful it all looked. The cake, DJ, bartenders and food were all included in the package. Dan was terrific to work with. Very responsive to emails and answered every question I had (time and time again) about the details of the wedding. We even had the captain dock the ship in front of the point so we had the lighted tree as a backdrop for our ceremony. I absolutely recommend the Gateway Clipper for a wedding. Everything went off perfectly! The staff went above and beyond to make our wedding amazing! And the value for the price was beyond comparison. The whole experience was like a fairy tale. Do yourself a favor and book your wedding here - I promise it’ll be the best thing you could do for your wedding!

Phenomenal Views

LOVE LOVE LOVED our Gateway Clipper reception. We had people who live in Pittsburgh and people who have never been to Pittsburgh at our reception, and they loved everything about the boat. The food was amazing, they had great preferred vendors, the staff went above and beyond, and the views were phenomenal. I couldn't recommend the Gateway Clipper enough

A First Class Wedding

To all future Brides and Grooms out there: pick the Gateway Clipper! It was the best decision we made, seriously. It is truly the closest one can get to a one-stop-shop. The event that they put together for us could not have been more perfect. Our family and friends have not stopped commenting on how this was the best wedding reception they have ever been to. For an event that turned out so perfectly, it should not be this easy to plan and coordinate. With the Gateway Clipper, it is. They set up everything (we had a meeting a week or two before and literally just dropped everything off the day before) and they managed all the deliveries throughout the day of the wedding. Dan, the wedding coordinator, is super easy to work with - he wants your event to be the best thing you’ve ever gone to and will go out of his way to make everything happen. All of this, as well as a truly professional crew (DJ & Cruise Director included), makes for an amazing, hands-off, FUN, and beautiful evening.

An Incredible Wedding

The Gateway Clipper Fleet was incredible! We absolutely loved the experience from start to finish. So many other vendors were included in the price. The up-front details team, big shout out to Megan, helped us all along through the process and took our requests in stride and fulfilled everyone. During the event, every single crew member checked in with us and our guests and ensured that everyone was enjoying themselves. The night was a complete success! We appreciate everything seeming effortless even though we know that an immeasurable amount of work went into making things spectacular.

Every bride hopes for every single detail to be absolutely perfect on their wedding day. Dan and crew at the Gateway Clipper made sure this happened for us! I honestly cannot say enough good things about Dan. He was absolutely amazing. He so promptly answered every single question I had throughout the entire planning process and made everything stress free and fun! He was so easy to communicate with and just hands down one of the best people I’ve ever worked with! The crew the day of were some of the sweetest people I have ever met! They made sure we got some of our appetizers from cocktail hour since we were upstairs taking pictures the whole time and plated our food for us so that we could continue to talk to everyone. Our captain, Andy, made sure we had the most perfect view the entire time for the ceremony. My wedding night was a dream come true and everyone at Gateway Clipper worked so hard to ensure that. Also, the all inclusive packages that The Gateway Clipper offers are amazing! All of the vendors are perfect! It makes the entire process of planning SO much easier.
