Our ceremony and reception was at the Mayernik Center in Avonworth Community Park and it was... PERFECT!! The staff was also amazing. They were extremely responsive and helpful. Chandel helped us out on the day of the wedding and she was great! I also was in contact with Robin and she was so responsive and extremely helpful. Our day was beautiful and I couldn't have asked for a better place to have our wedding :)

We booked the Mayernik Center in May 2013 for our July 2014 wedding. We went through at least 3 different event coordinators, but the lastone was the most helpful. We were able to set up the day before because we had our event on a Friday. The space is absolutely beautiful and so are the grounds surrounding the building. Overall, we had a fantastic night that every one of our guests were complimenting us on for days.

Overall a fantastic place for a wedding! Shawndell (wedding coordinator) was beyond helpful on our wedding day. She made sure we ate dinner, kept our drinks coming and even saved my ring bearer from having a meltdown before he walked down the aisle! She was amazing. The only downfall is that you can't have rehearsals on Fridays because they have weddings that day. You also can't attach decorations to any part of the woodwork, but the natural beauty saves money on décor! Great service, easy to work with, and also affordable.

This Venue was perfect for our June Wedding! We worked with Laurie & Chaundel and both wonderful! Laurie basically books the place and tells you all the details. The venue only holds 200 people which is reasonable. Also they charge you $2.95 per person for soda. (which is a little much) Chaundel is you coordinator for your rehearsal and for the day of. She was absolutely wonderful! She made the day go so smoothly. Any time I was low on a drink she had one ready for me! She was awesome. I would highly recommend this venue. Just book in advance because they book up fast because it is so beautiful!

The Mayernik Center is beautiful! The surrounding park has a lot of cute locations to take pictures as well, so you don't have to go anywhere else. Chandel was extremely helpful throughout the process, and even came through with umbrellas for us when it started to rain in the middle of our outdoor pictures! My advice- book early! We started looking in July 2012 and all of 2013 was already booked by then.

We were married at the center (we rented the pavilion) on 5/2/14 and it was the most memorable day of my life. The Mayernik Center staff (Laurie B and Chaundel) were amazing to work with. My family is still raving about Chaundel. She ran her butt off for us that night (she insisted!). They were quick getting back with our questions prior to the wedding and helped to make sure that every detail was ready for the big day. Day of, Chaundel was there bright and early to assist with everything (Decorations, deliveries, etc.). I cant express how she helped make the day so perfect. She really has a grasp on what it takes to put together a wedding. The scenery around the center makes for awesome pictures. I am so happy we chose this for our venue.

When I originally booked, I booked with Suzi by referral. A few months later when I called she no longer worked at the Mayernik, this was a bit confusing since I was re-directed to a new person named Chaundel and had to go through some of the same processes. Long story short, in the end it all worked out, I had the most amazing reception, everyone was very accommodating from the Mayernik and worked so well with myself and my husband! All guests were promptly greeted and directed as they should have been. The beverage system seems a bit over priced, and the seating chart could have been sent before the week of the wedding, but other than those two minor things the venue and staff is incredible.

Even with a change in staff our event went very well. I took it upon myself to visit a week before so I could see the room and better explain how I would like it set up. The venue was gorgeous! Spotless inside and out even after all the mud and rain the week of the wedding. It was a beautiful wedding and we received so many compliments on the space and the service. I will recommend this venue and expectedly for a Christmas wedding!

We had our wedding at the Mayernik on December 21, 2013, and the staff, headed up by Laurie Berry, was exceptional. She made sure that the day of went smoothly, and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy.

The venue itself was beautiful, with Christmas trees that added to the feel that I wanted to capture for our winter wedding. It was the perfect place for a winter wedding (or any time for that matter).

The list of vendors that were permitted for use for catering, DJing, etc were some of the best that we could find. We were lucky to have the guidance from the Mayernik in our search.

Let me start out by saying that I love this venue. My wedding was truly a page out of a christmas fairytale. However, the only reason this happened was because of my family and their knowledge of events (my mom is a florist). I had a wonderful experience when I booked in 2012 with Suzi. Suzi always communicated effectively with me and helped me with ideas for the wedding, etc. I lost communication with Mayernik/Suzi 3 weeks before my wedding. Of course I was panicked and I called them (more than a few times) and when I finally got ahold of someone they informed me that "Suzi no longer worked there." I was upset that I had to call them to find that out...nobody ever bothered to get in contact with me. Then, a WEEK before my event I had to chase Lori down and try to get her information because she had never called me back to follow up after our conversation. After numerous phone calls and emails 72 HOURS before my wedding I finally got a response from a "confused" Lori who didn't understand why I would be stressed that I didn't even receive a seating/table chart or any communication from them and my wedding was in 2 days. My in laws, who had previously been told they would be guided in the alcohol buying process, never received timely communication either. My father in law was emailed a googled link for how much liquor to buy...it became very clear then that the current management had no idea what they were doing. I dont think I need to elaborate anymore on my frustration there. This was not the service I signed up for or paid for when I signed my contract. I was never made to feel like everything was taken care of. Thank God my family was there and made sure that everything ran smoothly. I would recommend this venue based on aesthetics only. I would not recommend this venue to anyone that needs any sort of guidance in their reception because the current staff has no idea what they're doing.

My Husband and I chose our venue after having to postpone our original wedding. We had this facility referred to us and it is BEAUTIFUL.

The Coordinator I worked with was Suzi Hawkins. She was very nice and professional. She helped make sure our wedding was set-up the way I wanted it to work and was very flexible with our payments. Anytime I was nervous or upset, I could call her and she would straighten the whole thing out.

The reason I didn't give the venue 5 stars is because I was told there was a professional sound system in house and my father-in-law, who has DJ'ed all of our families weddings and is very professional had nothing but issues with this system. Then about an hour 1/2 into our 5 hour reception the microphones stopped working and they could not get them to work. The venue did try but was not successful at all. Had I know how terrible the sound system was, I would have taken out the renters insurance and had my father in law bring his own equipment (from new York, 7 hour drive away).

The other negative is sometimes it can be difficult to reach Suzi or any of the staff because they are only able to work limited hours. I did ALWAYS receive an email or call back, just sometimes it took up to a week or two.

Bartenders were very nice. Layout was great and they do have "strict" policies but all of these are VERY clear in your contract.

We were very pleased with the Mayernik Center as a venue for both our ceremony and reception. I would recommend the Mayernik Center as a venue.

Positives:
Beautiful setting, ample parking, large dance floor, separate bridal room and bath, great place for photos (this was the best thing: we did our ceremony, photos, and reception all at the same location and it worked out perfectly), we could bring our own alcohol, amazing team who were incredibly patient, responsive and professional, tables and chairs provided with the rental fee, maintenance staff and event staff on-hand the day of the ceremony. Suzi and Chandel were amazing.

Drawbacks:
Kegs had to be bought through the Center and we could not take them home after the wedding, a high charge of soda per person, fee for both the ceremony time AND ceremony chairs.

I would highly recommend the Mayernik Center. We had a positive experience from our first visit.The venue is incredibly beautiful & offered a lot of flexibility which is great for a DIY wedding or someone on budget.The venue has established positive relationships with a variety of vendors & this helped put our minds at ease. Suzi worked with us up until the wedding & was extremely responsive & attentive. She helped with every detail from the beginning so we felt comfortable that our big day would go off without a hitch. No question was too big or small. Every question we had she answered quickly & even offered suggestions where appropriate. Suzi was direct & thorough. Because of Suzi we were able to be organized & felt confident that there would be no unexpected surprises. The day of the event we worked with Chaundel. I admit I was a little nervous working with someone other than Suzi since she was our primary contact up to that point & I hadn't established a relationship with Chaundel. The instant we met Chaundel all concerns were alleviated. It was obvious that Chaundel was up to speed & briefed on our event which made for a seamless transition. When we met for the rehearsal it was as if we had worked with her from the beginning. This just speaks volumes about how wonderful & experienced the staff are at the venue. Chaundel was very calm, personable, & professional. She was instrumental in ensuring our day was a memorable one. Chaundel kept everything moving along & instantly established a relationship with our main points of contact for that day. If any issue came up she handled it effortlessly. Even our guests commented on how wonderful Chaundel was & were impressed with how the day just moved along perfectly. I can't say enough great things about the venue, Suzi, & Chaundel. Our day was a very memorable experience that I would do all over again in a heartbeat & this is because of the venue's amazing team of professionals.

I would highly recommend the Mayernik Center. We had a positive experience from our first visit.The venue is incredibly beautiful & offered a lot of flexibility which is great for a DIY wedding or someone on budget.The venue has established positive relationships with a variety of vendors & this helped put our minds at ease. Suzi worked with us up until the wedding & was extremely responsive & attentive. She helped with every detail from the beginning so we felt comfortable that our big day would go off without a hitch. No question was too big or small. Every question we had she answered quickly & even offered suggestions where appropriate. Suzi was direct & thorough. Because of Suzi we were able to be organized & felt confident that there would be no unexpected surprises. The day of the event we worked with Chaundel. I admit I was a little nervous working with someone other than Suzi since she was our primary contact up to that point & I hadn't established a relationship with Chaundel.

The Mayernik Center was the perfect place for our wedding! We loved the atmosphere and the staff was great to work with. Everything was beautiful and exactly as we planned. The kids LOVED having the covered porch to run around and play on, especially with the off and on rain throughout the night. Suzi and her assistant were fantastic and went out of their way to make sure that everything was how we wanted it to be. We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone else looking for a great place to have their wedding reception!

Throughout the process of planning our reception at the Mayernik Center, we found Suzi to be unprofessional, hard to get a hold of, and she told us conflicting information on more than one occasion. She did not return any of our phone calls the weekend of our wedding. We met with her months in advance to discuss how we could use our iPod to provide the music for our reception, she told us which cables we needed to buy, and assured us that this would be no problem. When we arrived with the iPod on the day of our wedding, we discovered that the soundboard was NOT wired to play music from an iPod. Their sound system was wired so that the vocal tracks of each song were sent outside to the speakers on the porch, and the music and background singer tracks were sent to the inside speakers. Needless to say, this does not sound good. I was told by an employee of The Mayernik Center that they were aware of the settings of the sound system and we should have never been told that they were compatible with an iPod. While dealing with this extremely difficult and stressful situation (which was only remedied by family members leaving the reception to purchase portable speakers and bring back for us to use) Suzi was not even there. We ended up working with another woman in her place, who unfairly walked into this stressful situation. She was extremely helpful and wonderful and was a saving grace for me that night. The lack of honesty from the Mayernik Center and Suzi in particular is extremely upsetting, caused a major problem at our reception, and for this reason I would not recommend this facility to anyone. It would be in their best interest to come under new management.

The venue was great! I had my ceremony and reception here and I couldn't have asked for more. The reception color was orange and it looked amazing with the wood. If your looking for something different and with character, I recommend the Mayernik center. The only issue we had was with flexibility. We had the wedding on a Friday to save money but we ended up spending way more because any accommodation that had to be made, it cost a lot of money to make it happen. Other than that it's a great place and the ladies there know what they are doing.

Beautiful place. Not too much ''fluff'' needed....but believe them when they say they provide nothing but tables and chairs. I wasn't too happy when two potential couples were touring the venue while we were setting up for my reception the day of the wedding; or when one of those couples came in the bridal room when i was in a robe putting on my wedding day make-up. A couple items also disappeared from our reception, including a butane lighter and the cake plate for our baker. Neither of which could be accounted for (considering these are items which I personally couldn't have lost or handled on the day of my wedding). Don't rely on Suzi for help. She was very good at responding to e-mails and reminding you for payments, but she soon doesnt forget to ask you for the bar bill (which I was told was due the day of event) while youre getting ready and getting pictures taken in the bridal room with your.mom and bridesmaids. I am by no means a.high maintenance person, but there are just some things you don't do. By the way, my fiancé had the check. Suzi also bailed halfway through my reception...the other coordinator was very sweet. She actually came up and introduced herself to be..and was the one that asked me if we had a 'money bag' for our money dance-something I totally forgot about. She had a very pretty bag and got it right away.
Overall, the place.is beautiful, my guests really liked it, but there are some things they need to change with management and professionalism. Behind the scenes, if someone says 'if you need my help, I'll be in the basement' doesnt fly on a wedding day for a coordinator.

The Mayernik was AMAZING for our ceremony and reception!!!!! Everyone at our wedding said it was the best they had ever been to. Gorgeous location and air condition! We even decided to have our ceremony in the pavilion last minute and everything went better than expected :)
The ONLY thing I can say that we did not enjoy was having bad dealings with the main coordinator. Suzie. She is not very pleasant to work with. She yelled at our dj about things that he had nothing to do with and was very unprofessional. If you decide to go with this beautiful venue than make sure you have Michaelyn "Micki" Snyder as your coordinator.

The Mayernik Center was a wonderful venue! This place is made for weddings, so everything went so smoothly. It's a very popular and beautiful venue, so spots fill up very early. The staff is very friendly and respond to emails and phone calls very quickly. I am really glad I chose this venue for both my ceremony and reception.

The only negative about this venue are the petty rules they have. Nothing major enough to affect the wedding, just little annoyances like only having two hours to set up the day of and having 45 minutes to take everything down at the end of the night.

The maynerik center was absolutely beautiful! My guest had a great time and are still talking about how perfect the setting was! The Maynerik center gave a great traditional wedding feel with the dance floor, head table, and over set up, but had its own charm with the rustic log cabin feel. We were able to use both indoor and outdoor spaces which was also very nice! The people at the center are very friendly and are willing to help with whatever they can. During my wedding I had a woman waiting on me that I had not met before that day and she blew me away! I wish I could remember her name, but she would be right there when I needed something and was very accommodating with any requests that I might of had. She helped me get a plate of food and carried for me, she made sure I had a drink before the bar was going to close, I can not say enough great things about her. She really made my day feel flawless.

The Mayernik was a perfect fit for our wedding. It was rustic yet formal. We rented the pavillion for a cocktail hour before our reception and enjoyed the beautiful weather that day. Suzie was wonderful to work with she had some great suggestions that helped us with our planning. Everyone siad they had a great time and really enjoyed the wonderful food provided by Remo's.

Thank you Suzie and staff for all you did.

So pleased with the Mayernik Center. Suzi was fantastic, and I really enjoyed working with her. The natural beauty of the wood interior requires very little ornamentation, and the fireplace is gorgeous. And the park is great. The kids really loved the playground. My only complaints are regarding the value. I think the required per-person soda-fountain cost is exorbitant. We spent more on pop than we did on liquor. And if you want the ceremony there, it is an extra fee (understandably), plus another extra fee (more than the ceremony) if you want to use their garden chairs outside. I can't tell you how many friends/family told us not to use the chairs and just have guests bring their own folding chairs (they were kidding and we didn't, of course). Overall, though, a great experienced and everyone had a blast. Just be aware that there are a lot of add-on fees on top of the great value of the space rental.

We had an excellent and literally flawless event. Micki was responsive from the beginning and even helped glue a button that had fell off a tux vest back on the day of the event. The bar room is great for people to mingle in and is such a great atmosphere. I think it is important for people to remember though that this isn't an all inclusive venue. You rent the place and they can point you in the right direction for vendors but you have to coordinate everything down to the wine glasses and decorating in the smallish window they give you the day of the event. Also, they make the DJ shut off the music and begin packing up 15 minutes before the scheduled end of your event and the bar closes a half hour early. They make all of these facts clear upfront but I think it is important to remember when deciding how long to rent the venue for. But for the price and the responsiveness this place can't be beat.

Our coordinator that we worked with was Suzi. The day of our wedding, though, we had Mickey. Before we booked we had read some less than stellar reviews about Suzi, so I have to admit that I was a little nervous, but I want to let you all know that Suzi was GREAT. Always quick to respond and had an answer to every (sometimes weird) question that I had. The day of with Mickey was also great. She even carried my dinner plate back to our table for us so I wouldnt have any issues with my wedding dress and spilling. I gave a 4.5 on professionalism because at the end of the evening, our DJ was to stop playing music at a certain time. He started playing, what we specifically requested to be our last song, maybe 1 or 2 minutes after the "cut off time." Mickey actually had SCREAMED at him to cut it off, when he was trying to explain that this would be the last song. So we didn't get to hear our final song. I understand that there was a hard cut-off time because they wanted to get people cleared out by a certain time, but I felt like she could have been forceful about it without screaming. I just felt embarrassed for my DJ/friend. Other than that, everything was PERFECT - truly. I would definitely still recommend. :)

We held both our wedding and reception at the Mayernik and they were both well worth it. It's the best venue in the area for a wedding. We looked at several other places before coming to the Mayernik; we were sold once we saw the venue in person. It's very affordable and easily accessible. However, you will want to book as far in advance as possible as dates fill up quick. We booked over a year in advance and still had to work around some dates to get our perfect wedding date.

Suzi, was very helpful throughout the whole process. She was very informative and helped guide you along the way. We had the possibility for some things to go wrong at our wedding, but Suzi made quite the effort to make sure everything went as smooth as possible.

Some things you should know before renting the Mayernik is that, like I said before, they book up fast. Weddings can be booked there Friday-Sunday, so you won't have the day before to setup for your wedding (or rehearse, unless your wedding is on a Friday). If you have a lot to setup for the wedding (you really don't need a whole lot though, it's naturally beautiful) like we did, make sure you have plenty of help to setup/tear down as you have very limited time to do so.

Overall the Mayernik Center is a great place for a wedding. We were very happy with the way it turned out and are very pleased to have worked with Suzi.

Suzi, was very helpful throughout the whole process. She was very informative and helped guide you along the way. We had the possibility for some things to go wrong at our wedding, but Suzi made quite the effort to make sure everything went as smooth as possible.

Some things you should know before renting the Mayernik is that, like I said before, they book up fast. Weddings can be booked there Friday-Sunday, so you won't have the day before to setup for your wedding (or rehearse, unless your wedding is on a Friday). If you have a lot to setup for the wedding (you really don't need a whole lot though, it's naturally beautiful) like we did, make sure you have plenty of help to setup/tear down as you have very limited time to do so.

Overall the Mayernik Center is a great place for a wedding. We were very happy with the way it turned out and are very pleased to have worked with Suzi. Read less

The venue was great. The charge for the use of the fountain/soda was a little high and actually was more that what we paid for in alchol. Overall it was a great day! Suzi was very helpful while planning the event and on the day of the wedding.

The Mayernik Center was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. Not only is the building beautiful, but everyone involved was helpful and professional, making our day perfect in every way. Any questions I had were quickly answered. Both before and during the reception, every person involved - from the bartender to the event coordinator - was extremely pleasant, very easy to communicate with, and assisted us in any way possible. All of our guests commented all night, and still now, how gorgeous the venue is. The large wrap-around porch also allowed our guests to stroll outside a bit to get some fresh air. Overall, we wouldn't have changed a thing about our wedding day, and we would recommend the Mayernik Center to anyone.

The Mayernik Center was a simply beautiful venue with lots of great outdoor picture opportunites. Great for the couple that wants an outdoor-sy wedding without the bugs and heat :) The event coordinator switched 3 times in 6 mo. while I was planning my wedding, but they all managed to keep it together for me. Micki was great at getting back to me with details and answers to questions. I rated the value a little lower due to the short amount of time we had the venue for the price and the above average price ($3.25) for each person to have soda that was required. They also have strict rules to follow at the center, but I was able to deal with them to have this beautiful location. It was a wonderful wedding, but too short!

When we first got to the Mayernik Center, its beauty was still evident despite the lack of life on the landscape that Pittsburgh acquires every late November. My fiancé and I had a pretty good feeling about the layout and the picture we had painted in our mind, but none of this would have at all been possible if it had not been for the Mayernik Center’s director, Suzi.

From the very start, we knew we were going to be in good hands after the tour. We had many questions about the procedures for the following months, for which Suzi had a detailed answer for all of them. Currently we live in North Carolina so for us to be so far away raised some concerns for us based on the lack of face time we were going to be able to have with all the people involved in our big day. Suzi was able to alleviate any stress we felt on her end, due to her vigilant and detailed responses to ANY question we came up with.

Suzi was an absolute pleaser to work with, and communicated well with all parties involved (caterer, DJ, parents, bartenders), and we know for a fact that this day would not have gone even a fraction as well if it were not for Suzi, and the wonderful staff that are behind the scenes at the Mayernik Center.

The Mayernik Center was a beautiful location for our wedding!! We had many options as to where we could have our ceremony (therefore giving us many backup options in case of inclement weather). Luckily, our weather was fabulous and we got to go with our first choice option of in the field behind Mayernik.

The facility recently bought ceremony chairs, which was a huge help to us so that we didn't need to hire a rental company for this.

Also, inside of Mayernik is lovely and almost completely newly renovated - new carpets and flooring, the works! So it looks brand new in there.

Suzi was very helpful with coordinating my event and I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking to have a wonderful wedding ceremony/reception.

Everyone raved about how much fun they had at our wedding and that is a direction reflection of the tone that the Mayernik Center sets!!

I was initially working with the coordinator Shannon, but she left soon after I decided on the Mayernik & I began to communicate with Suzi. She was extremely helpful, flexible, and quick to return my MANY emails! We had our ceremony and reception inside, but luckily the weather allowed for many outside photos around the large property.
We had an unfortunate situation in that my hired DJ thought our wedding was the day AFTER it actually was & didnt show up! But Suzie made some phone calls & got a DJ to fill-in for us at the very last minute. She helped keep us calm & everything turned out beautifully. She even found some rubber cement which worked to temporarily hold on one of my fake nails that fell off!
The bartenders & caterers were great too...haven't heard ANY negative comments from my guests. It wasn't the cheapest place we could've gone with, but it was sooo worth it :)

The staff are very friendly and helpful, they will set it up however you want it to be, and they take care of any mishaps or problems the day of (we had a problem with an accidental double order of beer, and the coordinator took care of everything when they showed up with more than we needed).

My husband and I were married at the Mayernik Center on 10-22-11. We had an outdoor ceremony on the park grounds and then our reception was held inside the center. The place is beautiful!! We continue to receive compliments on how nice the place was, how convenient it was to our out-of-town guests, and how friendly and organized the staff was! Suzi was awesome to work with! She made our day run so smoothly...always got back to me right away if I had questions or concerns...and just overall made the whole wedding planning process seem easy. We had a wonderful time and our guests loved EVERYTHING about the Mayernik center! I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for the perfect spot in Piitsburgh to get married!

Suzi was great to us ! It was a beautiful venue. All our guests loved the woodsy feel of it as did we. We had the ceremony out back behind the center and moved the party in. The only thing i can say is that the center really has a lot of little add ons. I think if you are spending thousands of the dollars they could at least throw in your names on the sign for free. Other than that, book early as it is a popular place and definitely worth checking out if you are looking for a not so traditional space.

The Mayernik Center is not only a beautiful venue to hold a ceremony or reception, but since they do so many weddings and receptions a year (they book over a year in advance!) they really know how to make things run smoothly. Anytime I would send an email to the coordinator, I would get a very quick response. Although its a little pricey, the porch and picturesque setting make it worth it! My only small complaint would be that in the 2 years that we were planning our wedding, the Mayernik had two coordinators move onto other jobs so we had someone new to deal with. However, this caused no problems whatsoever and our plans were still executed flawlessly! We heard so many compliments on the service provided by Suzi, the coordinator, as well as the beauty of the venue from our guests. I recommend the Mayernik to anyone who wants a cozy, woodsy feel to their wedding with beautiful park views from a wrap around porch. You won't be disappointed!

I gave the Mayernik center a high overall rating because of Shannon, not Susie. On the day of my wedding, Susie was rude and overall not helpful. If you plan on using the Mayernik Center, request only Shannon. Shannon was kind and extremely helpful. She made everything run smoothly before and after the wedding. She is very good at what she does. As for the center, it was clean and well maintained. All of my guests loved the wood inside and our outdoor ceremony was beautiful too. I'd use the Mayernik Center again.

I just got married on July 30 at the Mayernik. My main contact was Suzi. A few times that I emailed her, she never responded and I had to contact the other coordinator to get answers to important questions. Suzi assured me many times that she would be there the morning of the wedding at 9:30 to let my husband and the other guys in to decorate. The guys arrived at 9:45 and had to interrupt a tour that the other coordinator was giving to another couple. Suzi didn't arrive until 12:05 and there were tables and other factors out of place and missing that I had discussed with the other coordinator that weekmsince Suzi was on vacation. She assured me they would be there and I even saw her write them down for Suzi. But they were never there and then she questioned me about whether I really wanted them or not. Of course, I would want them, I specifically asked for them. Suzi just seemed inconvenienced during the event and wanted to rush a few things along. Overall, the value of the Mayernik is great. Our day was great but those few hiccups could have easily been avoided had Suzi covered all her bases. If you are looking at the Mayernik for your wedding, ask to work with Shannon.

Everything was absolutely amazing for our big day. It went off without a hitch and the staff was more than able to accomidate certain requests.

As far as flexibility, this is more geared towards changes the board making changes to policies between us renting the space and the wedding date. Some requests we orignally had were allowed, but later were denied due to these changes, however compromises were made between us and the staff that made everything work out. I am sure going forward these items will already be in place and future wedding couples will not need to worry.

Thank you to everyone that helped us in creating an amazing wedding and one that our guest still continue to talk about. Thank you so much!!

Shannon and Susie were wonderful. They seemed to try very hard to work with my requests and they were great at answering all of my questions. I E-mailed them several times over the course of the last year and Shannon always got back to me quickly. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch and the building itself was beautiful. Even if the lights that I was told would be changed were still flickering on and off annoyingly.

The reason for my less than perfect review was because of the policy change. When my husband and I booked the Mayernik center we were told that we would have some time to set-up and decorate. Although it was not mentioned in the contract, (we were told it was because if they could book an event 3 months prior to our wedding then they wanted to leave that option open, and we would be informed otherwise, makes sense) I took them on their word that they would be accommodating to the time constraints of a do-it-yourself wedding. I was very disappointed later when they switched their events coordinator, and a few months before the wedding I was informed that we were unable to arrive before 10am to set up because of a policy change. They claimed that it was because it is very expensive to heat and cool the building so I explained that I would not need air conditioning. Every suggestion I threw out was denied and I eventually had to sacrifice one of my best friends (whom I wanted by my side) so that she could go and decorate the morning we were getting ready.

In the end Susie took time out of her day to help with the set-up, she arrived earlier than ten to let us into the building and she was very accommodating the day of the event. She coordinated everything to the timeline I had given her and sometimes she even brought me a drink. She was very helpful the day of, even though she was very busy with other events going on in the park.

I do not regret booking the Mayernik center but I believe their policy is way too strict and "THE BOARD" (all I kept hearing about) should reconsider.

Just beware, there is nowhere to store anything prior to 10am, no way to drop things off prior to 10am, no way to cool things prior to 10am, no way to do anything until the time the bride and everyone else helping with the wedding is supposed to get ready for the wedding and are unable to be there. If you plan this ahead of time though your event should run smoothly.

Even if the lights that I was told would be changed were still flickering on and off annoyingly.

The reason for my less than perfect review was because of the policy change. When my husband and I booked the Mayernik center we were told that we would have some time to set-up and decorate. Although it was not mentioned in the contract, (we were told it was because if they could book an event 3 months prior to our wedding then they wanted to leave that option open, and we would be informed otherwise, makes sense) I took them on their word that they would be accommodating to the time constraints of a do-it-yourself wedding. I was very disappointed later when they switched their events coordinator, and a few months before the wedding I was informed that we were unable to arrive before 10am to set up because of a policy change. They claimed that it was because it is very expensive to heat and cool the building so I explained that I would not need air conditioning. Every suggestion I threw out was denied and I eventually had to sacrifice one of my best friends (whom I wanted by my side) so that she could go and decorate the morning we were getting ready.

In the end Susie took time out of her day to help with the set-up, she arrived earlier than ten to let us into the building and she was very accommodating the day of the event. She coordinated everything to the timeline I had given her and sometimes she even brought me a drink. She was very helpful the day of, even though she was very busy with other events going on in the park.

I do not regret booking the Mayernik center but I believe their policy is way too strict and "THE BOARD" (all I kept hearing about) should reconsider.

Just beware, there is nowhere to store anything prior to 10am, no way to drop things off prior to 10am, no way to cool things prior to 10am, no way to do anything until the time the bride and everyone else helping with the wedding is supposed to get ready for the wedding and are unable to be there. If you plan this ahead of time though your event should run smoothly. Read less

The only thing I wished the hall had was a garment rack in the bridal suite. Other than that the place was magnificent, very kid friendly, playground on site!! have being able to have both the ceremony and reception was a win, win we had quite a few handicapped and elderly guests at our wedding, so i worked out very nicely not having to travel to a lot of places for the event. also the large ramp and wrap around deck proved to be tremendous help as well, if they wouldn't have had that my grandmother who is wheel chair bound would not have been able to attend. The events coordinator Suzi was very helpful, informative and kind through this whole process! I would recommend the Mayernik Center to anyone having a wedding, anniversary dinner party, graduation etc....

The Mayernik Center was a wonderful venue for both our ceremony and reception! We can not say enough good things about this place. The venue itself is beautiful and needed little decoration. Shannon our event coordinator was fantastic! Everything went off without a hitch and if it didn't I had no clue there was even an issue. Shannon quickly responded to all of my emails prior to our wedding which made it really easy to plan. She was very personable and easy to get along with. This place fills up quick so book it fast! I just wish the wedding and reception itself was longer so if you have the money I would suggest buying an extra hour. Other than that you will have no regrets if you choose to have your wedding here! Thanks so much Shannon!!

Not only was the Mayernik staff incredibly helpful and flexible, the place is absolutely beautiful! For the affordable cost you get a high-quality location that is well kept and for the most part well designed. Our wedding was in January, and the all of the guests commented on how the lodge-like atmosphere was perfect with the snow. (But likewise, when my sister used it for her July wedding two years ago it was equally suitable!)

The Mayernik Center was a great place to have our reception. It comfortably fit all of our guests and everyone there was very professional and helpful on the day of the wedding. The only thing that was surprising on the day was that they wouldn’t let people in until a certain time. I had thought when we met with the event coordinator that they would let people in early, but not let them into the H’orderves and bar area until the reception actually started. However the event coordinator changed shortly before our wedding so maybe that was not conveyed to the new person or policies changed. Either way that just a small bump in what was an overall great day. I would suggest to any couple planning your reception to be aware of the timeline and how it works at any place you plan your reception.

The wedding coordinator did everything she could to help me plan all the details of my reception - she even went so far as to take pictures of chair covers in the reception hall to help make my decision easier (since I'm an out of town bride). I would definitely recommend checking this facility out!

This venue fills up fast! I had never heard of the Mayernik Center before, but when I got engaged my fiance and I looked into every possibility in the Pittsburgh area and the Mayernik Center was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! We were looking for a very warm/rustic lodge type venue that would fit into a small budget...and the Mayernik met our criteria. A great bonus is that you bring in your own alcohol - so that is a huge money saver! The caterers that they work with are fabulous also - we used the Post Office Group. We booked about 18 months before our wedding so we were in contact with Megan and Shannon for quite a long time. Despite the fact that I felt like a huge pain, emailing nearly everyday, every email was answered quickly and completely. Living out of state, I wasn't able to visit the Mayernik Center as often as I would like, so I really depended on email/phone contact. However, when I did have the opportunity to visit the venue Megan and Shannon were always available and flexible. Luckily I was able to set up for my event the day before and Shannon was there to answer any questions we had. On the day of the wedding, she lit hundreds of candles and everything was absoltuely perfect!

Must book well in advance and for good reason!

Affordable, gorgeous, easy to find, huge parking lot, great photo spots, very professional, helpful, and it literally decorates itself!

My husband and I stumbled onto it after googling some places since we've only lived in the area for a short time. We had no idea it was such a popular spot but I see why and I'm SO glad we were able to book it! It was THE perfect location for a reception!

I would reccomend this place to everyone and anyone. The also offer a military discount which is nice in todays world. They no only appreciate your business but the also appreciate what our men and women do for the US, and they show that. Megan, is a doll to work with and was there for us the whole way. We planned our wedding from over a 1,000 miles away, she made it like we were there. She was also lovely for my planner to work with. I would have my wedding there again and again!

Megan was absolutly wonderful. She helped us with all of our questions and concerns, and was there from the very beginning. The facility itself is fantastic, and does not need a lot of decorating because the building is beautiful on its own. We had about 140 guests with the ceremony and reception inside. The ceremony was a little croweded, but they kept everything organized and no one seemed stressed at all. The waiting list was over a year for a Saturday wedding, but the wait was worth it.

I found out about the Mayernik Center after my mom had put a deposit down on another place that I wasn't 100% sold on. A friend told me about where she had been married "it's affordable and beautiful" she said. She was right.

Not only is the Mayernik affordable, it's the most beautiful place for the price. We got married in the fall and it was absolutely the most perfect setting. I thought the dance floor was going to be too small, but it wasn't at all! Some of the perks: You can bring your own alcohol (which will save you TONS), beautiful setting, which means you don't have to travel for photos and an extra room for the bar and buffet.

Megan was also wonderful! Since we provided all of our own decorations, we had to decorate the DAY OF the wedding. The napkins had arrived and Megan had them present at the rehearsal for my review. I told her that I wanted to take them home so I could fold them like a pocket and place my program inside. She said that she'd have the caterers (Monteverde who provided the linens) fold them. And she did. It turned out to be a huge relief to me.

If you're considering the Mayernik, call now. I got lucky and booked one of the only remaining days of the year for our wedding. It was a Sunday but we got a discount on the rental because it wasn't a Saturday.

At any rate, I loved this venue. We had such a fabulous time and everything went GREAT!

We found the Mayernik about 18 months before the wedding date but we both knew immediately that this was the perfect place for us to get married (we had the ceremony and the reception there). It's absolutely beautiful there and has everything you need. Megan, the coordinator, is a doll. She did everything to make the day go smoothly and we had lots of questions and things that we wanted to do a little differently. There was nothing she didn't do, down to making sure my train was right before I walked down the aisle!
Another great thing is that you can bring your own alcohol. This was HUGE for us as we are pretty specific about what we like, and it also saved a lot of money. Also the bride's room is nicely done and gives you plenty of space to get ready. 4 of us all had hair and makeup done here, and it was so much easier that way.
If you had more than 150 guests, the reception space might be a little too tight, but it was perfect for our smaller, intimate wedding. Also, if you go over a certain number of guests, you have to pay for traffic control, but that wasn't an issue for us as we had nowhere near the number that would have required it.
I gave a 4.5 for cost only because the rental of the hall itself was a little pricey, but honestly, compared to other venues we looked at, the convenience and amenties were worth it.
I can't imagine having my wedding anywhere else and I am so happy that we found the Mayernik. It's very popular, so if you are interested, check on the date you want soon!

The Mayernik was very helpful through every step of the planning process. They were a little pricey, BUT we were able to bring our own alcohol, which was a HUGE $$ saver for us. It's a gorgeous venue and we had many, many compliments on how pretty the location was. We used the back patio for the ceremony, and later used the backyard for lawn games. People also congregated on the front porch and seemed to really enjoy it. The DOC was different than the one I had talked to, but she was very nice. I was hoping she would have been able to stay in the hall the whole time while we were decorating and preparing, but since she was unable to do so, she gave us her cell phone to reach her in case we needed anything. A couple vendors had quick questions for her, but I was able to answer them for the most part. I do highly recommend them, however.

I can't believe there are no reviews for the Mayernik yet on this site as it's a popular venue... You'll have to book well over a year in advance for popular dates. And with good reason - the place is gorgeous. And Megan, the event coordinator, is fabulous.

We had our ceremony on the grounds behind the center and our reception inside. It was so convenient to be able to have everything in one location so all of our out-of-town guests didn't have to travel around a whole lot. And the park is really easy to find - just a mile or so off of major highway 279. There's plenty of parking and a really cool playground for the kids to blow off some steam. The center itself is very pretty - we got many compliments from guests about it. The main room has a nice stone fireplace and large windows that let in a lot of light. They have a separate room with the bar and buffet (if you go that route). There's a bride's room and separate bathroom, which came in quite handy. There's also a really great wraparound porch where people enjoyed mingling (and escaping the music, if they wanted).

The event coordinator, Megan, was awesome. When we originally booked the site, a different event coordinator was there - she was great - so I was a little worried when she left. Fortunately, her replacement was even better. Megan was very accommodating and super-responsive in emails. She was patient, answering even the stupidest of questions that I had. When I switched around the table arrangements the day before the wedding, she said no problem! On the day of the wedding, she seemed to be everywhere at once making sure all the details were taken care of. I couldn't have asked for anyone better!

A few things to be aware of:
- You must choose from a list of approved caterers, of which there are currently four. We had no problems with this (and loved the one we chose - Monteverde's), but if you have a specific caterer in mind this might be a problem.
- You may have to rent some things from an outside vendor (or perhaps through your caterer). For example, we needed chairs for the ceremony. Mayernik could provide some, but not enough for all to sit. Another example - they provide plastic cups for drinks. If glassware is something that's important to you, you will have to rent. We didn't care and I don't think anyone else cared as long as there was something good to drink in the cups. ;)
- You must provide your own wine/liquor/mixers, which is a great money saver! We were able to return unopened bottles to the store. Beer you have to get through Mayernik via kegs. If you'd rather have your venue provide it all for less hassle, this might be a problem for you. But hey, I'd rather save a few bucks. :)

Overall, I had absolutely no complaints about the Mayernik Center, and I wholeheartedly recommend them!

I can't believe there are no reviews for the Mayernik yet on this site as it's a popular venue... You'll have to book well over a year in advance for popular dates. And with good reason - the place is gorgeous. And Megan, the event coordinator, is fabulous.

We had our ceremony on the grounds behind the center and our reception inside. It was so convenient to be able to have everything in one location so all of our out-of-town guests didn't have to travel around a whole lot. And the park is really easy to find - just a mile or so off of major highway 279. There's plenty of parking and a really cool playground for the kids to blow off some steam. The center itself is very pretty - we got many compliments from guests about it. The main room has a nice stone fireplace and large windows that let in a lot of light. They have a separate room with the bar and buffet (if you go that route). There's a bride's room and separate bathroom, which came in quite handy. There's also a really great wraparound porch where people enjoyed mingling (and escaping the music, if they wanted).

The event coordinator, Megan, was awesome. When we originally booked the site, a different event coordinator was there - she was great - so I was a little worried when she left. Fortunately, her replacement was even better. Megan was very accommodating and super-responsive in emails. She was patient, answering even the stupidest of questions that I had. When I switched around the table arrangements the day before the wedding, she said no problem! On the day of the wedding, she seemed to be everywhere at once making sure all the details were taken care of. I couldn't have asked for anyone better!

A few things to be aware of:
- You must choose from a list of approved caterers, of which there are currently four. We had no problems with this (and loved the one we chose - Monteverde's), but if you have a specific caterer in mind this might be a problem.
- You may have to rent some things from an outside vendor (or perhaps through your caterer). For example, we needed chairs for the ceremony. Mayernik could provide some, but not enough for all to sit. Another example - they provide plastic cups for drinks. If glassware is something that's important to you, you will have to rent.

I was so happy with the Mayernik Center and it perfectly fit our wedding. It is an amazing beautiful hall. Megan, the event coordinator was very helpful and attentive to our needs and really took care of the behind the scences at the wedding. Without her, I don't think the reception would have moved so smooth. I would absolutely suggest the Mayernik Center without hesitation for any event!

The Mayernik Center in Avonworth is the perfect location for your wedding. We had a fall wedding and the leaves were in full bloom. It was spectacular. Everyone loved the location and could not compliment it enough. The staff was very, very accommodating. The only thing that I didn't give them a 5 for is the original coordinator couldn't make our reception so the coordinator that was there was in jeans. I would recommend this location to anyone that wants a beautiful and stress free reception.
