White Barn Pittsburgh Wedding ~ Capri and Louis

Capri and Louis were wed on a gorgeous sunny day. There was not a cloud in the sky as the couple said their “I do’s” at their outdoor ceremony. The reception venue, the White Barn, was a true throwback to vintage decor with strings of pearls, lace, and breathtaking floral arrangements.

For live entertainment, the dancing-till-you-drop Pittsburgh wedding band, City Heat, performed for their family and friends as they danced non stop all evening long. The couple created the perfect playlist for the band to play, with fun, groovy tunes, getting guests up and on their feet, till their shoes came off!

Weddings are all about the details, and in this wedding, there were many to see. Simple and romantic, little touches are everywhere, starting with the bride. She wore slingback wedges and a form fitting gown. Her dress was covered in lace, and the back delicately woven with flowers and dotted with buttons.

We love this photo below, of the groom awaiting to meet his bride. So much anticipation! He wore a gray suit and white bow tie.

Their ceremony took place outside on the grounds of the White Barn. A white elm altar stood just before a pond, decorated with flowers and white drapery. Jars of baby’s breath lined the make shift aisle.

The bride walked down the aisle on the arm of her father. We love the vintage feel of her bouquet, with soft pink and white flowers. Her florist, All About Reclaimed, did an amazing job.

The bride’s gown fit her like a glove. Her veil was the perfect length and her swarovski crystal belt provided just the right amount of sparkle.

Pink and gray were the main colors in this wedding. Half of the bridesmaids wore pink, while the others wore gray. Their gowns were long, light, and airy. Perfect for an evening of dancing! The groomsmen looked dashingly handsome in gray suits, white shirts, and gray bow ties. The bridal court must have been eager to get to the reception to relax and listen to some great music.

The bride and groom asked the band to play anything and everything FUN! They wanted everyone to dance as both their families enjoy good music and love having an excuse to party! City Heat was happy to comply and played a fantastic variety of current music, classic oldies, salsa, and cha cha. A very special song was played for the bride’s parents- their wedding song, “Always & Forever”.

Another highlight of the night was a soul train dance line led by the father of the bride! The women lined up on one side and the men on the other, and paired off to dance down the line. The band also played great line dancing music, such as the “Cupid Shuffle”, “Teach Me How To Dougie”, and “Cha Cha Slide”. The newlyweds and their guests had a smashing good time!

White Barn Pittsburgh Wedding Sparkler Send Off

What a perfect way to end a spectacular night, with a sparkler send off for the newlyweds. The bride and groom had an absolute blast and could not have asked for a more talented, lively band to entertain their guests. We hope you’ve enjoyed taking a peek at Capri and Louis’ gorgeous wedding. The couple was thrilled to have City Heat play at their reception, their talent and professional skills truly knocked it out of the park.

Bakersville Fire Hall Pittsburgh Wedding~ Claire and Michael

Claire and Michael’s wedding was a sweet country affair. The couple exchanged vows at the St. Peter’s Catholic Church with many of their friends and family in attendance. Their reception took place at the Bakersville Banquet Hall with pretty white tables and gold chandeliers. There were many little touches throughout their wedding, from the cake with a porcelain bell topper and handwritten place cards. For entertainment Claire and Michael found a fun and classy live band to perform at their reception- the Modern Times Band. Family and friends had a blast listening to 80’s and 90’s music, jazzy tunes, and participating in a dollar dance!

Bakersville Fire Hall Pittsburgh Wedding Bride Details

We love this photo taken by their photographer, Glessner Photography, of all the bride’s trinkets. Her something blue; a garter, her pearl necklace, earrings, and bracelet. Even her shoes with a vintage brooch were so pretty.

Bakersville Fire Hall Pittsburgh Wedding Ladies Shoes

Truly a throwback to the 80’s, with big bows and ruffles, the bridesmaids really knocked it out of the park with a fun twist on the traditional bridesmaid dress. So great for dancing, too! The bridesmaids wore different styles, some short and some long and the only thing they had in common- the color, white!

After the ceremony guests headed for the Bakersville Banquet Hall for the reception. The ballroom was decorated with white tabletops and colorful napkins. The bride and groom had their own table with their wedding cake, a delicious buttercream confection done by My Daughter’s Wedding Cakes. The dance space was huge and had plenty of room for Modern Times Band to set up!

Parkersburg Country Club WV Wedding~ Kasandra and Eric

Kasandra and Eric thought of every detail for their special day. The couple chose a beautiful color scheme of deep reds and plum wine, which complimented their romantic reception venue perfectly. They also chose a top live Pittsburgh wedding band to perform all night long for their family and friends. The weather could not have been more perfect, with many of their photos taken outdoors under the canopy of trees. Liv Hefner Photography captured the bride and groom, so happy and so in love.

We must pause for a moment to take a look at the bride’s bouquet. Truly, so romantic. The bouquet was a mixture of calla lilies, red and pink roses, and plum dahlias. The colors blended together beautifully, every flower in full bloom.

The bride was gorgeous with curls falling naturally to her shoulders and chandelier earrings sparkling in the sun. She wore a mantilla veil with lace embroidery and a form fitting dress. Her wedding gown was delicately stitched with lace appliques, capped sleeves, and crystals.

Parkersburg Country Club West Virginia Wedding Bridesmaids

The bridesmaids wore dresses the color of wine, each a slightly different style. Their dresses were long and lightweight, perfect to move about the dance floor! The ladies wore their hair up, away from their face, with soft tendrils escaping free. Their bouquets featured the same colors as the brides, with pink roses, dahlias, and chrysanthemums.

The men wore light gray suits with pinstriped ties. The happy groom pinned a red rose to his lapel instead of a white one like the rest of his groomsmen, and a solid gray tie. What a handsome group!

Parkersburg Country Club West Virginia Wedding Flowers

The bride and groom held their reception at the Parkersburg Country Club. The venue looked beautiful with tall glass vases and low floral centerpieces. The flowers were arranged by Passiflora, who did a wonderful job incorporating the bride’s color scheme. Gold chargers rested under the white china with a small token of remembrance on each place setting. The napkins were red, the table cloths shimmery gold, and the chairs white with gold sashes.

Parkersburg Country Club West Virginia Wedding Gold Numbers

How fun was the chevron runner? That is a great touch, a modern flair to this traditional wedding! We also love the fancy script table numbers in gold frames.

Parkersburg Country Club West Virginia Wedding Reception Tables

City Heat was ready to start the night with bridal party introductions atop the venue stage. How perfect for the band, with plenty of space for every member and instrument. The band played “Dear Future Husband” as the court made their way into the ballroom, right before playing another Meghan Trainor song, “Like I’m Going to Lose You” for the bride and groom to share their first dance.
