Hilton Garden Inn Southpointe Pittsburgh Wedding ~ Kristi and James

Kristi and James make a beautiful couple. The newlyweds celebrated their marriage at the picturesque Hilton Garden Inn Southpointe/Pittsburgh. A traditional Greek celebration was planned with fun music and customary dances. Pittsburgh’s top Wedding Band – John Parker, was a huge part of the night, providing outstanding entertainment all evening long. It was quite the party!

The bride wore a beaded gown with intricate patterns of flowers. Her hair was swept away, curled in a beautiful up-do, with a few soft ringlets around her face. Delicate capped sleeves and pretty earrings completed her look. Her classic, romantic style was captured flawlessly by their photographer, Amber Marie Photography.

We love the colors in this wedding. The bride and groom chose accents of red among the white, cream, and pink flowers. Soft gold taffeta covered the tables and plum chargers were set under the white china. Their florist, Donati Florist, did a fabulous job arranging the flowers.
