Allison and Brian were married at the fabulous Parador Inn on the North Side of Pittsburgh. They exchanged vows in the living room of the old mansion while surrounded by friends and family – it was an intimate and wonderful ceremony that Allison’s son Ian played a big part in.
The great thing about the Parador Inn – besides Ed, the owner, and his two black labs – is that the couple and guests can spend the entire day getting ready, holding their ceremony, reception and then spend the night without leaving the premises.
Here are some of my favorite photos from the day:
Ian has fun playing with one of the Lab’s in residence at the Parador (Caroline’s photo):
Family members hang out in the living room before getting ready for the wedding ceremony. I loved how laid back the atmosphere was:
Allison’s niece Anna had the run of the place:

We walked around the Parador Inn to take some portraits:
Meanwhile, the guests enjoyed cocktails in the courtyard:
Allison and Brian cut the cake and served it to each other:
Brian toasts their guests:
Ian had a box of sour gummy worms that he shared with the guests who had glasses of champagne. The idea was to drink the champagne and down the worm!
Bob and his granddaughter Anna:
The happy couple:
Thanks very much for having us along to document your wonderful day!
