On Friday July 3rd 2009 we were at Pittsburgh’s Grand Hall at The Priory which is located on Pressley Street in Pittsburgh PA. The event was a wedding reception for Greg & Sheria Mason. The reception started at 6:00 pm as guests began arriving to Pittsburgh’s Grand Hall, where they enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
At 7:00 pm we invited all of the guests to take their seats and after a brief welcoming, guests watched an 8 minute photo montage, featuring the bride, the groom, friends and family members. This was immediately followed by the introduction of the bridal party.
After entering the hall, the bridal party surrounded the dance floor as they awaited the bride & groom. Once introduced, Greg & Sheria went directly to the center of the dance floor, where they shared in their first dance as husband and wife to “My Best Friend” by Tim McGraw. We then invited the bridal party and parents to join in a dance with Sheria & Greg to “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra.
Guests then enjoyed an incredible meal which was prepared by the culinary staff at Pittsburgh’s Grand Hall. After dinner, Greg & Sheria cut the cake to “How Sweet It Is” by James Taylor & then fed each other to “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar. In the months leading up to the wedding, Greg & Sheria actually held an online poll to allow guests to vote for the flavor of the wedding cake. The winning flavor was Vanilla cake with a Chocolate Mousse filling. “You asked for it… You got it”.
Throughout the remainder of the evening, guests danced to everything from “Cupid Shuffle” by Cupid to “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” by Michael Jackson. The wedding reception concluded at 11:00 pm as guests danced the last dance to “Unforgettable” by Nat King Cole.
