Interview with the Bride….

Maria: Why did you choose your venue?

Melinda: My husband is from Homestead pa and Pittsburgh is our favorite place in the world, we knew we wanted to get married in Pennsylvania and show our California family the place we hold so dear. Since we are huge sports fans, (Steelers and Pirates of course) we knew that PNC Park would be perfect to incorporate this aspect of our lives into our day. Once we met with Jaclene at PNC Park, we knew it was perfect for us to say our vows on top of the dugout and celebrate from behind home plate!

Maria: Did you face any obstacles while planning your wedding? If so, please explain.

Melinda: It was difficult to plan a wedding in Pittsburgh from So Cal but my vendors proved to be absolutely amazing. everyone involved really went out of their way to make our day exceptional.


Maria: Did everything go as planned on your wedding day?

Melinda: Yes, everything was absolutely perfect!


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

Melinda: I would have purchased an additional hour of time with my photographer to capture our after wedding events, just for fun!


Maria: Your favorite wedding day moment?

Melinda: Our first look at the Mazeroski statue, all my butterflies disappeared the second I looked into Jason’s eyes, and my first look with our son Makio, his reaction is something I will never forget.


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

Melinda: Enjoy and savor every minute, it goes by so quickly!
