Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Samantha + Jeff

If there is one thing that {SHE} loves, it's when a bride knows what she wants + dares to be different.  Samantha knew she wanted something non-traditional yet special + unique to she and her hubby-to-be. Samantha + Jeff elected to have an extremely intimate wedding ceremony amongst 10 immediate family members in their backyard. It was quaint, warm + beyond special. The pair then headed to the Pittsburgh Opera, the venue they chose because of its industrial chic vibe. It was pertinent to the couple that their celebration abandoned many of the standard "wedding elements" but rather had open-concept seating with a mixture of farm tables coupled with metal galvanized chairs, lounge furniture, and ultra clean-line cocktail tables + barstools.  Above the two lounge vignettes that anchored the space were brush brash industrial chandeliers to create an inviting ambiance for their family + friends to eat, drink + be merry! With a myriad of food stations + mini desserts along with the laid-back room layout truly promoted that mix-and-mingle atmosphere that Samantha + Jeff longed for! As guests departed, they were asked to take home a mini pie -- one of the couple's favorite sweets + a fantastic late night snack! Aaron Varga Photography captured the night with perfection!
