No, it’s not a Florida wedding, but it’s nice to see, dream a little, and feel the warm air, balmy evenings, birds chirping, green lush trees – how quickly I forget the hot sweltering 93 degree Saturdays this past summer – it sure seemed like one of the hottest summers in a long time.
I remember begging for some cool Saturdays – maybe just some clouds. What was I thinking?
Sara and Ben were married at Heinz Chapel with a reception at Longue Vue Country Club where Rebecca and Jen treat their brides like royalty. While they can’t accommodate a huge wedding, I would highly recommend you’re taking a look at the club if you’re searching for a venue. The ballroom and living room are beautiful as are the grounds around the club.
Sara looked stunning in her Matthew Christopher gown from Anne Gregory. He’s become of the most popular bridal designers.
We’ve all met people who you just feel good to be around. They have a positive outlook on life and always have a smile for you – I think that describes Sara and Ben. Every time I looked over at them, they were both smiling from ear to ear – they looked so happy! I managed to catch Ben in a in a bit of introspective moment. I remember how I felt walking out that door on wedding day, knowing that my life was about change forever – for the better!
Sara and Ben had a special flower girl – just the cutest sweetest thing and Ben’s daughter.
I just can’t imaging how I’m going to feel when Kate and Nina are married and I’m dancing with them at their wedding. I’m sure it will be a mix of joy, pride and a little sadness.
Cityscape, as usual, got the crowd jumping and really made the party so much fun. Fred Ruddock from Alphabetical Order did a wonderful job with the florals and (from Sara) for our cake, we used Tom Hambor from Food Glorious Food on Bryant Street in Pittsburgh. He is a fantastic Chef and can do wonders with any cake. His artistry is beautiful, and he likes to be challenged and tap into his creative side. If you tell him your favorite flavors, he will try to make a cake from scratch that represents you. I would recommend him a hundred times over to anyone looking. Obviously, I am a fan!
Sara and Ben honeymooned in Aruba and are at home in Manchester, NH, enjoying married life!
