This is the second year, having this event here. Her approach and diligence to detail made our event run smoothly. We will be back next year! Thanks Paulette and team!"


"We attended a wedding at this establishment in April. It is a beautiful and spacious facility. The staff and food were excellent.."

"I just wanted to share with you our great appreciation for all your staff did for our families for our Special Place luncheon. Paulette assisted in coordinating the event and was such a joy to work with, paying attention to every last detail. She and your staff were accommodating to our every request and did so with a smile! Good customer service is almost non-existent in today’s world, but Paulette and your staff are proof that there is still hope it exists! We couldn’t have asked for better service! Thank you, on behalf of the CORE staff and our donor families for making our Special Place luncheon just that…very special!"

"As a daughter of a Shriner, I've been to many, many, many events at The Pittsburgh Shrine Center. The staff is always friendly, and will do just about anything to make you comfortable. Just about everyone who was at the wedding who'd never been to the Shrine came up to me and complimented the beauty of the venue! You won't be disappointed if you choose Syria for your venue!"


"Paulette - THANK YOU for all of your help in ensuring a class act, top notch event that my Mom, friends and family will never forget! Looking forward to seeing you again - Thank you!!"


"Excellent wedding venue!"

Sonya S.

"I recently had my wedding at the Pittsburgh Shrine Center. Everything turned out amazing! We received so many compliments about the hall, location, parking, food, and much more! I found it very difficult to find a hall that held over 300 people and looked at many venues. For the price, location, and overall look-no other venues compared! I highly recommend the Pittsburgh Shrine Center. for your special day!"


"We had our company Christmas party here. It features a huge hall that is beautiful. Nothing bad to say about the Shriners or their hall service."

"Absolutely phenomenal experience. Paulette was there every step of the way, organizing every detail and arranging times and places with each vendor. Incredibly attentive, constantly adapting to the situation and ensuring that safety and happiness were key. My partner and I could not have asked for a more stunning venue with an even more incredible staff. Their recommended vendors to work with are unreal, working hand-in-hand for our wedding to go flawlessly. Couldn’t have imagined a better place to celebrate our wedding at."


"The Shrine Center is a hidden gem! It was last on my list to check out, but was the perfect fit for us! We had a beautiful Christmas wedding. The staff takes care of it well, there were dressing rooms that we got ready in that were perfect for what we needed. Paulette was fantastic, she helped us with everything the day of and the day before getting ready and making sure it was everything we wanted and more! I appreciated Paulette’s opinion and structure! She is very dedicated to her work!! I don’t think I can thank her enough!"


"Dear Paulette, I wanted to thank you sincerely for 'holding our hands' throughout Friday and Saturday to help us make things go so smoothly. It was indeed perfect from beginning to end. The facility was perfect and your professionalism permeated the entire event. Thank you so very much! Yours, Joyce"
