Chris & Rachel,  June 30, 2012:

Ceremony and Reception held at: Hilton Garden Inn at Southpointe

Room Design and Floral Arrangements: Marsha Pleta (724-413-7207), email,

Bride’s Hair and Makeup By: The Spa & Salon at Southpointe

Rachel and Chris had an awesome summer wedding at the Hilton Garden Inn at Southpointe in Pittsburgh! They had a romantic theme that carried throughout the whole day from the beautiful draping and crystals at the ceremony to the luxe cake and glistening decor. They even had beautifully colored peacock feathers sprinkled throughout- from the flowers and jewelry to grooms boutonniere. However, despite the seductive romantic feel their guests sure knew how to party! Overall, it was a beautiful day filled with fantastic people, and we would like to wish both Chris and Rachel a lifetime of happiness. Thank you both so much for allowing Ovation Images to be a part of your wonderful wedding!

On your wedding day you want beautiful wedding photography. So follow these tips from Ovation Images, Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer, for flawless photography on wedding day..

  • Ask your photographer if s/he is aware of any restrictions on photography at any of your selected locations. Some “public” places have severe photography restrictions, such as Phipps Conservatory (even in their outdoor gardens)
  • Photography on private property is not recommended. With a limo full of people, going to the business park waterfall is just not a great idea. An encounter with the police could make an embarrassing mess of your whole day, to say nothing of the pictures you will miss.

Pick your Pittsburgh Wedding photographer for their photography first. Make sure you LOVE their work. “Like” isn’t good enough. Why? Because right now, while you are planning your wedding, you are seeing it in your mind’s eye as a perfect day—a “dream wedding day”. After your wedding, your pictures have to be better than ordinary in order to live up to your “dream wedding” expectations. Think about it.
So if you LOVE Ovation Images work, give us a call!

At Ovation Images, we can make a great reception guest book using your engagement photos. But consider doing more than just a guest book: Have a few small books with questions on them and let the guest answer the questions, like “What is your best piece of marriage advice?” “Where is a great place to go on a date? (we want to keep our date nights fresh and exciting!) “What surprised you the most about married life?”, and so on.

How great would this look in a reception guest book or Wedding Photography slideshow during cocktail hours?? (Just ask Ovation Images how to get one at your wedding!)

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.
