Where do I start with Emily & Eryk's wedding?! I got to know Emily and her family very well over the course of our wedding planning and I am absolutely smitten with them! I first started off planning Emily's sisters' wedding (which will be debuted on the blog soon!), and after several months of planning Alison's wedding, Alison passed my name along to Emily. Emily and I hit it off right away, and before I knew it I was helping to plan both sisters' weddings just 2 months apart from each other...talk about a busy time in their household! ;)
Emily & Eryk's wedding day started off with hair and makeup for the ladies at Emily's parents' home. We planned plenty of time for hair & makeup so the ladies could be fully pampered that morning. Following hair & makeup, Emily and her bridesmaids set out for a photo session around the family's property. It was a bit chilly and damp on their wedding day, but Emily was still smiling through it all and was seriously one of the most happy and cheerful brides I've seen :)
Emily & Eryk exchanged vows at St. John & Paul Catholic Church in Sewickley. Prior to the ceremony beginning, guests were treated with a variety of romantic music selections from harpist, Julia Ann Scott. Having the harpist play as guests arrived was a nice change from the traditional organ.
Following the nuptials, guests made their way downtown to the Omni William Penn for cocktails, dinner, and dancing. The Omni was the perfect location for Emily & Eryk's formal wedding reception. Guests enjoyed amazing cuisine, stunning decor, and not to mention an incredible dance set by In the Mood (I mean, just LOOK at that packed dance floor!).
Emily & Eryk's wedding was the perfect kick off to our 2012 wedding season!
Congratulations again to Emily & Eryk!!
