Carly and John at St. Mary Of The Mount & Sheraton Station Square

Carly and John had a very special day with family and friends for their wedding at St., Mary Of The Mount (Mount Washington, Pittsburgh) and the Sheraton Station Square. The bride was stunning, and the bridal party was….a partee! We stopped in between the ceremony and reception at the newly redone overlook in front of Monterey Bay on Grandview Avenue. Since night falls early at this time of year, we also had time for some very intimate moments with the lights of Pittsburgh reflecting on the river in the background. Pittsburgh’s most-trusted and most-experienced wedding photographers at Ovation Images were on hand…

Dante & Laura,  September 8th, 2012:

Ceremony held at: St. Mary of the Mount
Reception held at: Shady Elms Farm
Wedding Cake and Food Caterered by: Rania’s Catering 
Limo Services from:  TDF Limousine  
Wedding Dress from:  The Exquisite Bride
Bride’s Hair and Makeup by:  Above All Salon in Wexford

 Dante and Laura had the best of both worlds with a wedding that took them on a tour all over the greater Pittsburgh area! First, they started out their big day by getting married at St. Mary of the Mount at the top of Mt Washington.  Next, they  hit the town and headed to the North Shore for some classic Pittsburgh skyline photographs. After some time in the big ol’ city they headed out to the country for a reception at Shady Elms Farm in Hickory, Pa.  They were lucky enough to evade the rain and get some gorgeous shots in the rolling fields around Shady Elms. Who knows, maybe she’s a little bit country, and he’s a little bit city boy- either way it worked and paid off with a beautiful day to celebrate an even more beautiful love!
