Interview with the Bride

Reflecting back on the wedding day

Why did you choose your ceremony and reception venues?

We met at Duquesne Law School. The priest who presided over our graduation mass also presided over our wedding mass, so it was special to us. For Station Square Sheraton, the view of the city in the window room is spectacular. Since we had a lot of guests coming in from out of town, it was a really nice way to showcase the city. Also, everything was included…cake, catering, tables, chairs. It made the planning much easier.

Did you face any obstacles while planning your wedding? 

We had a lot of guests traveling from out of town for our wedding, so the main obstacle was making sure everyone had a hotel room. Our wedding was on a really busy weekend in Pittsburgh, and it was extremely difficult to reserve room blocks for our guests.

Did everything go as planned on your wedding day?

Yes, it was the perfect day!

 

 

Looking back on your wedding day, is there anything you would have done differently? 

We probably should not have waited until 2-3 days before our wedding day to complete the seating chart. But everything worked out! I wouldn’t change anything about our wedding day!

Your favorite wedding day moment…

The wedding ceremony….but really the entire day was awesome!

Any advice or tips to give to a Bride-To-Be?

Don’t sweat the small stuff…everything always works out! Also, we had a few hours between our ceremony and our cocktail hour. It was actually really nice because it gave us more time to see our guests!

Sheraton Hotel at Station Square is what I  call an all-inclusive venue for weddings. You can have your getting ready there and your reception. For portraits, you can walk over to where the Hard Rock is and choose from a plethora of areas to take photos. The only time you would have to leave is for your ceremony!

Getting Ready

Bride and groom chose the Sheraton in Station Square for both their getting ready location as well as their reception.

The Reveal with dad

As mentioned in my previous post, this is something that is starting to become standard for many of my brides. I highly recommend this to anyone who is thinking about it for their own wedding as the pictures are always priceless.

The Reception

The wedding reception was held at the Sheraton Hotel in Station Square, right across the river from downtown Pittsburgh. Anne and Brian decided to utilize two separate ballrooms for their reception. One room was for dinner and toasts only and the other room opened up after dinner for dancing and drinks. Oh and the cookie table was the length of an entirely separate room, so really, this reception took up three whole rooms! Wow!
