Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel Wedding
From a warm mid-summer wedding to one that was photographed at the chilly end of the year around New Years, here is Erica and Mack’s Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel Wedding.
Like a friend of mine said the last time we golfed together, “Joe, you’re all over the place.” 😀 But one thing you’ll see is that just like Lauren and Tom, these folks know how to have fun. I am grateful to my dear friend, the terrific photographer Rebecca Kiger for helping me out on this one.
Here are some of my favorite photos from the day.
Getting Ready: Girls at the Hotel, Guys at Home
The girls got ready at the Renaissance.
Mack winds his watch while getting dressed at his parent’s house in Highland Park.
Thank goodness for YouTube or the pocket squares would have never been folded correctly.
Some details include an heirloom pearl necklace, a fabulous pearl and silk flower clutch, and Badgley and Mischka shoes.
Erica’s fur stole was the perfect winter wedding accessory.
Erica and her mom share a tender moment.
On to the Church
The ladies leave the Renaissance at about the same time the guys arrive at St. Raphael in Morningside.
Mack and Erica exchanged notes. They read them at just about the exact same time in different places in the church.
Mack and his best man, his twin brother Jake, join the priest for a prayer before the ceremony.
Erica sheds some happy tears as she waits for the ceremony to begin with her maid of honor.
Erica walked down the aisle with her mom while Mack was all smiles.
St. Raphael was still decorated for Christmas. It’s a beautiful church.

Moving in for their first kiss!

Off to Frick Park

A walk on the path on a crisp winter day. I’ve got to hand it to Erica and Mack – they were excited to be outside for portraits even though it was chilly.
Back to the Renaissance
Some details at the reception. From a Christmas tree-themed escort table to lush red roses on the tables, it was an elegant Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel Wedding.
It wouldn’t be a Pittsburgh wedding without a cookie table. Pizzelles always make me think of Christmas.
We stopped at the Roberto Clemente Bridge on our way to the Renaissance for a portrait at dusk.
An enthusiastic entrance into the reception.
Erica and Mack had a dance set before sitting down to dinner. It was a great way to get everyone in the mood to party.
Erica and Mack share their first dance.
Mack and his brothers had a great time!
I love New Years weddings. Thanks for having us along for all of the fun 🙂
