On Saturday we were at The Grand Hall at The Priory in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. The event was a wedding reception for Karen and Greg. Karen and Greg were married at 2:00 pm at Saint’s John and Paul Catholic Church. Guests began arriving at The Grand Hall at The Priory shortly before 5:00 pm where they enjoyed cocktails and appetizers on the outdoor patio.
At 6:10 pm we formally introduced the bridal party into the ballroom and then Karen and Greg cut their wedding cake prior to dinner. Dinner was prepared by the staff at The Priory and was served sit-down style.
After Dinner, Karen and Greg shared in their first dance together as husband and wife to the song Sweetest Devotion by Adele. Next, the newlyweds danced with the bridal party and then Karen danced with her father and Greg danced with his mother before we opened up the dance floor.
