Wonderful Chadwick Wedding Ceremony and Reception

Krista and Jake knew they wanted their wedding ceremony and reception in the same location. They knew a single location would make their wedding day go more smoothly, eliminate transportation cost and be easier for all their guests. They Picked The Chadwick, a superb wedding banquet hall located just north of Pittsburgh, in Wexford. The Chadwick has multiple covered outdoor areas for a ceremony and several different sized indoor halls for for your reception. It has ample free parking and is easy to find. What more could you ask?

Bridal Show Wedding Shopping Success! The right, the wrong and the upside-down of bridal show shopping.

Bridal Show Shopping - You're Enaaged! Now What? - Part 12 of 30

Since some of your friends are probably getting engaged too, you may have attended a bridal show even before you got engaged. If so, you know the deal: A bridal show is an overwhelming rush of everything you need and don’t need for your wedding. Many local vendors are gathered together for your convenience. But stay alert: Bridal Shows are good sources of discounts–when they are not a great source of confusion!

Even a moderate-sized bridal show will present you with an amazing amount of information. The problem is that it quickly drives most people into overload—“they all seem the same”.  To get the most out of a bridal show, you have to go with a specific goal and purpose “to find a caterer”, “to meet people from dress shops to see who I like”, “to see different kinds of photography so I know what I want” and so forth. Just walking in and trying to see it all is a trap. You may see it all. But it all comes in an avalanche and you will be quickly snowed under.

When you go to the show, know your wedding date. If you are seriously shopping for wedding services, every vendor you talk with will want to start with your wedding date and work from there. Going to a show without a set date is a waste of your time and theirs.

Another point to realize is that bridal shows are a safe haven for wedding shopping. The vendors that commit to do these shows are usually the most established and experienced wedding vendors in the region. Most of them have storefronts and have been in business many years. The fact that they have been around the wedding business for a long time is a solid indicator of their reliability and professionalism–pretty important qualities in a wedding vendor!

At your next bridal show, go with a set wedding date, narrow your focus and have clear goals for what you want to get done at the show. Going to the show with the idea of  “collecting information” rarely accomplishes anything. It’s better to go with an explicit purpose in mind and checks or credit cards in hand. Sure, look everything over. But stick to your goals. And when you meet a vendor that satisfies all your criteria, go ahead and make a commitment to them. Leaving the final steps until later with follow-up calls and follow-up meetings adds confusion, wastes the start you made at the show, and drags out the process of finding good services that you need for your wedding. If you see something that works for you, buy it at the show and check it off your list. Mission accomplished!

Wedding Photography Save Me! Photography is your wedding day parachute. Make sure it opens when you need it!

Your Wedding Photography Parachute

Expenses are piling up and you’ve already spent more than you want to. But keep this important fact in mind: Low-budget wedding photography is about as risky a decision as you will ever make. It’s extremely chancy to skimp on something that you want to enjoy for the rest of your life!  It’s like the old joke about negotiating a discount with someone to pack your parachute and then going skydiving–the money you saved won’t mean a thing if that chute doesn’t open!

Well, what should my photography cost? The Knot does an annual survey of brides to find out what they paid for “average” wedding photography. The latest survey results (2014) as published in USA Today show that average wedding photography costs $2,440. If you want above-average photography with amenities such as two photographers, more than 8 hours of coverage and/or a wedding album, then you should expect to pay more than that.

The good news is that paying more for great photography is actually cheap wedding day insurance. Guard your photography budget like a skydiver checking her chute before getting into the plane. Be certain that your parachute will get you safely on the ground. It is far better to spend more that you had planned than to look at those pictures afterward and wish you had spent more. They can never be done over again–there are no upgrades next year. Knowing that as you look at pictures you don’t like is the very definition of heartbreak. At that moment, the $1,000 you saved won’t be worth ten cents.

Who Will You Be With On Your Wedding Day?  Who will you spend the most time with on your wedding day?  The answer might surprise you.

Your Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer is Your Constant Wedding Day Companion

Going in to your wedding day, with the possible exception of your maid of honor, the person you will spend the most time with on your wedding day is none other than….(wait for it)….your photographer! In these days when candid story-telling is the most popular form of wedding photography, your photographers might start by meeting you at your hair salon and end by joining in your circle of friends at your last dance. In order to tell your story, they can never leave your side!

The point is that it is important to actually know the person who will show up at your door. Be sure you have a  chance to get to know them before your wedding.  This is one reason that Pittsburgh’s Most Trusted Wedding Photographer, Ovation Images, always encourages couples to do an engagement session with us.

Wedding pictures that you love are personal.  How could it be otherwise?  Be certain that  you get a photographer that you WANT to have around all day long. They need to be sensitive enough to stay in the background at the right times, and diplomatic enough to make friends with your guests, while taking charge during your hectic family pictures. They need to know you well enough to know that what you’re going to want goes WAY beyond what you actually asked for. Your photographer will be your constant companion on your big day.  So be sure to pick the right person to spend your wedding day with!

Big Day Wedding Kiss at South Hills Country Club, by OvationImages.com

Country Club or Golf Club ambiance is hard to beat for a wedding. The setting itself establishes a special tone for your big day. The menu choices available to you will be very attractive. The service of the staff will be uniformly superb. These are many of the reasons why brides choose country clubs for their weddng and/or wedding reception.

Now you may be thinking “yes, but I am not a member of any of these clubs.” Mostly, you don’t have to be. Most clubs will accept you as long as you are “sponsored” by a member. If you are interested in a certain club, call them and ask for the wedding coordinator. If your date is open, get a tour and ask what the requirements are for you to use the club for your wedding and/or reception. You will most likely be pleasantly surprised.

And, if you or any of your family members are members of the club, the club will roll out lots of very sharp extras for your wedding–like golf carts for you and your bridal party so you can go to the best picture-taking spots.

Pittsburgh is lucky to have some absolutely stunning country clubs that host weddings and receptions. We suggest that you look into the possibility of using a country club near your home or church. You will be glad you did. Click on any of the country club names above to see a real wedding at that club photographed by OvationImages.com!

Why have your wedding at a hotel? Well, if one family is not from Pittsburgh and large numbers of your guests will be coming in from out of town, there are many advantages to a hotel for your wedding reception.

Simply put, the hotel option is nearly unbeatable for out of town wedding guests. Cost (for your guests) is among the advantages, but convenience and travel time are big pluses to a hotel wedding reception—especially for the elders of the family.

The advantages for you? The big one is the security of knowing that your guests are not all out driving around trying to find you! But also, when you reserve a block of rooms for your guests, many hotels will break out their top-drawer wedding services, providing you with suites for getting-ready and private moments, plus a set of “free” add-ons to your wedding package that can range from special desserts to extended bar service hours. This is an area where a good wedding planner will earn her keep.
