For the couple that wants to host a truly magnificent event in a piece of American history, the Mellon Auditorium is the obvious choice for your wedding. The façade of the building is truly spectacular; six colossal fluted Roman Doric columns rise 62 feet 6 inches above the base to create the auditorium’s portico. Wedding photos taken in the portico will have the classically elegant backdrop to your portraits that you have always dreamed of. The grandeur of the building’s exterior is matched by its interior. Limestone-finished walls and piers define the space and frame views of the east and west staircases, the lobby, and the breathtaking auditorium beyond. The Mellon Auditorium, and the various grand rooms within, come together to create the breathtaking fairytale wedding rarely seen outside of the movies. Hold your ceremony in the Great Hall beset by limestone pillars under an intricate decorative ceiling. Guests will be absolutely awestruck watching you exchange vows against the stunning backdrop. Move into the sleek, classic lobby for cocktail hour while the Great Hall is transformed into a festive space for your lavish reception.
