Renaissance Hotel Pittsburgh Wedding ~ Amy & Pat

Renaissance Hotel Pittsburgh Wedding: Newlyweds Black and White PortraitAmy and Pat’s wedding day was reminiscent of classic Hollywood glamour. The decor was simplistic and agelessly elegant, but always sported some shimmer to add a little pop! No part of the wedding better represented this theme than the bride herself, who looked timelessly beautiful in a simple mermaid gown accented by sparkling heels and an engagement ring worthy of a princess! The guests were equally thrilled by the celebration and, with the help of the John Parker Band, had the time of their lives on the dance floor!

Gifted photographer Kristi Telnov captured the dazzling aura of this special day immaculately, allowing you to enjoy the true splendor of the couple’s big day!
