Your wedding day is a celebration! Ovation Images will be with you for every moment of fun giving you exciting wedding day photography! So here are some tips from Pittsburgh’s Best Wedding Photographers to keep the party going all day long:

  • Many venues have a limit on how late they can stay open due to city ordinances. If you have a late-afternoon wedding and are planning a late reception, make sure you know when it has to end.
  • Likewise, talk with your vendors in advance to see how much it would cost to extend the time they are providing services. Knowing the cost in advance will make the decision simpler. Also ask if you can extend one hour at a time in case you need more than one extension!

Ovation Images Wedding Photography Tip #50:

If you want your guests to dance, you have to be on the dance floor. Your guests will tend to do what you do. If you are walking around visiting tables all night, they will sit at the table waiting for your visit. If you are on the dance floor , they will come up and dance just to be with you. So get out there and get dancing! Not only is it fun, but it makes for amazing wedding reception photos!!

Your reception should be full of fun and smiles! Make sure this happens by starting it off with a picture perfect entrance by following these tips from Ovation Images, Pittsburgh Wedding Photography

  • Have the DJ tell everyone to twirl their napkins over their heads (like Terrible Towels!) as you make your grand entrance. 150 twirling napkins accompanied by raucous cheering will be a grand entrance you will never forget.
  • Don’t change into comfortable shoes before your grand entrance. All eyes will be on you- show off those shoes!
  • During your reception planning process, review your grand entrance path into the hall with your reception coordinator. Look at the floor plan together and try to arrange tables so that there is enough room for two people to walk in side-by-side. Ideally, the path into the room should be as straight as possible. Delegate someone not in the bridal party to make sure that tables are not crowded into the space that you have to walk through to get into the hall.

Ovation Images Wedding Tip #14:

Steal at least five minutes away from the crowd to be alone before the end of the night! Have a moment to just take each other in and laugh about all the things you wanted to say to one another but couldn’t because everyone was around!

Wedding planning can be stressful, but try to start planning as soon as possible, because time will fly. Take it from a Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer: If you start early you will have more time to enjoy just being engaged as the date gets closer!

Julie and Tim had a beautiful wedding day at their family church and the Wendell Inn, with a fun stop in Oakland near Schenley Park and Frick Park for some amazing wedding day images! They were game for anything we could dream up–and we can dream BIG! Julie’s dress is from David’s Bridal and it photographed wonderfully well, as all the David’s dresses seem to do. Catering at Wendell Inn is by Chez Anthony, who always remembers to keep the coffee hot all night long! This is greatly appreciated by tired photographers.

Ever hear of the big town of Cabot, PA? Me neither–at least until last Saturday. Autumn and Drew had an absolutely stunning Western Pennsylvania setting for a beautiful wedding day. We saw some rain. But we were having too much fun to pay attention! Take a look:

In case you are looking for a reception venue in the Butler area, Autumn and Drew had their reception at Cooper Hall.
