Amanda and Greg’s St. Mary of the Mount and Duquesne University Power Center Wedding:
As you can see in the photo above, Amanda and Greg’s wedding day was a “blessed” with rain. But hey, it’s good luck, right?
Good luck or not, nothing was going to spoil the joy for the day that these two waited so long to share with one another. Really, they’re the best of friends. I’ve known Amanda for quite some time and she always has a smile on her face. But I’ve never seen her as happy as she is when Greg is around.
What did I say about smiling? Her talking mirror agrees: She looks great
The girls gathered upstairs at the rectory at St. Mary of the Mount when it came time to get the dress on. It was an elegant and lovely dress that suited Amanda perfectly:

Amanda takes a deep breath while waiting outside of St. Mary of the Mount with her sister Emily. Amanda is the Director of Music Ministry at St. Mary of the Mount. That’s how we met. She’s a wonderful organist and singer. I can only imagine, but after providing music for hundreds of weddings she had to be thinking at this moment about how it was her turn to walk down the aisle.
Amanda shares a hug and some tears with her dad Joe:
…and some laughs on the altar with Greg:

We stopped for photos at the Mellon Institute. The guys had a good time while holding the bouquets for the ladies:
There wasn’t a single dull moment with this group:
The soft light and warm tones of the stone columns made for the perfect conditions for an elegant portrait of Amanda:
Over to the Duquesne University Power Center where the couple shoved cake into each other’s faces. She started it!
After they got cleaned up, Amanda and Greg shared a first dance in front of the huge windows at The Power Center:
