In a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel, Elizabeth and Derek were married on June 14th.

I’ve incorporated a few audio clips just to give you a feel for how much fun everyone had, from getting ready to the end of the party.

Elizabeth surprised Derek with a limo ride from home with the guys – a great group of friends and family who are, well, colorful and fun.

If your favorite salon and makeup artist travel, I always recommend using that service. It’s just one less thing to worry about, especially if Kenny Chesney is in town – it was sure busy downtown and it was nice to have everything in one place.

The Renaissance is a beautiful hotel with an old world feel, yet not stuffy. It has some awesome locations for photographs. Tony Lee, the wedding and special events manager is fantastic. He takes great care of his clients and always does something special for them ( I don’t want to give out any of his secret surprises).

It usually takes a while for families on both sides to get to know each other and integrate, but Elizabeth and Derek’s families have become so close, even before they were married.

Elizabeth has a great sense of humor – she’s such a pleasure to be around. And, she can do that look – fashion passion. Derek’s just a sweet guy – warm and open – and a lot of fun to be around.

Elizabeth’s beautiful gown was a Casablanca creation, cake by Bethel Bakery, florals from Alison McGeary and DJ Spike’s always a lot of fun and has a great feel for the crowd.

Turks and Caicos was their honeymoon destination – some place I’ve always wanted to visit.
