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.
The band was ready and waiting to start the evening in the reception hall. Upbeat music played, beckoning guests to the dance floor. The bridal party made their entrance and the bride and groom followed close behind. The couple shared their first dance as husband and wife as John Parker Band played “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)”.
First Dance: How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You), James Taylor
Bride/Father Dance: Isn’t She Lovely, Stevie Wonder
Groom/Mother Dance: You Are the Sunshine of My Life, Stevie Wonder
As dinner was served, John Parker Band played soft music. Guests enjoyed the romantic vibe and were later delighted to watch the bride and groom share dances with their parents. The fun was just about to begin- the band called up family members to join in for a traditional Greek dance! What a lively wedding, from rock n roll to 70s and 80s hits, with Greek and American music intermixed! Guests boogied down all night long.
“The band did a fantastic job at our wedding!
Our guests can’t get over it, the wedding was a show!” -Bride & Groom
