Duquesne University Ballroom Pittsburgh Wedding ~ Kristina & Rhyan

From the bride’s luxurious a-line gown with lace straps to the ivory bouquet of roses and peonies, every little detail emanated a timeless sense of romance. Defined by an entire color palette of white complemented by feminine pink accents, this wedding was practically made to impress! Of course, there was more to this party than looks alone. The John Parker Band busted out their best music picks to keep the dance floor vibrant until the lights went down!
