What a gorgeous day for a wedding, with clear blue skies and plenty of sunshine! Annie and Tyler had exquisite taste, from the menu cards, to the gleaming white china, centerpieces, table linens, and an awesome live band, every detail was clearly thought of. We adore this photo of Annie and Tyler gazing at each other lovingly, outside the romantic brick building of their venue, the Longue Vue Club – a masterpiece of classic elegance in Pittsburgh PA.
The bride and groom chose Sky’s the Limit Photography to photograph their wedding. These are talented folks, as their photographs captured amazing moments. We love the attention to detail in the following photos below. In one shot, Annie’s white satin shoes are surrounded by bright red holly berries. In another photo, her bouquet and wedding rings rest on a bed of pine needles. And lastly, there is a photo of Annie herself, radiating elegance and grace, in her timeless satin dress.
Annie’s lush bouquet consisted of white roses and hydrangeas. The stems were wrapped in sheer organza, a lovely touch. Annie’s look was complete with teardrop diamond earrings and a fancy up-do, with one curl loose around her face. What a beautiful bride!
The ceremony was held at the magnificent St. Mary’s of the Mount church. Timely and old worldly, with arched ceilings and wooden pews, St. Mary’s cathedral is breathtaking. Lanterns glowed from above and sunlight poured in through the stained windows while Annie and Tyler exchanged their vows.
We love this black and white photo of the bride and groom walking down the aisle, smiling from ear to ear, as they embark on their new journey as husband and wife.
The reception was held at the historic Longue Vue Club. The venue was elegant and sophisticated, just like the bride and groom. As soon as guests entered the room, they were greeted by the sounds of the live band and the visual elegance of tall floral centerpieces that matched the bride’s bouquet of white roses and hydrangeas. Her florist, RJ Kohler, also mixed in evergreens, holly berries, and other assorted greenery. There were also a few long, rectangular tables, that had smaller floral arrangements with entwined evergreens used as a runner.
Natural light spilled in from the french doors and crisp white linens draped every table. Music filled the air. The china gleamed, simple and clean. Small votive candles flickered and menu cards were tucked gently inside each napkin. Pine wreaths and royal tapestries hung above every window and the gold chiavari chairs and gold chandeliers gave the space a sense of grandeur. The place card holders were adorned with holly berries displaying each table number in fancy script.
Annie and Tyler had three cakes- one three tier, one two tier, and a groom’s cake. They were done by Jennuine Cakes, an amazing baker. While the cakes are simple and sleek, we love the fun and original black and white check board platters!
The live entertainment of the wedding was Pittsburgh’s top wedding band, the John Parker Band. The couple loves to dance and asked the band to get everyone on their feet, as soon as possible. With a mix of 60’s, 70’s, and 90’s, and top 40 music, the band complied, and their guests flocked to the dance floor.
Bride & Groom’s Dance: Jimmy Durante, Make Someone Happy
Father and Bride: Natalie Merchant, Kind & Generous

We love how happy Annie and Tyler are in the photo above. Their photographer, Sky’s the Limit Photography, captured some amazing shots of guests enjoying themselves, young and old! It almost feels as if we are right there with them on the dance floor, in the middle of the action! This was one heck of a party. By the end of the night, there was one more surprise the couple had up their sleeve- glowsticks and other fun props for everyone to use!
We truly enjoyed being a part of Annie and Tyler’s special day. Take a moment to check out the vendor list; from the flowers, cake, and photography, everyone is so incredibly talented! We’d like to especially thank Sky’s the Limit Photography for allowing us to use their photos, we are thrilled to be able to share them with you.
