An Intimate Look Inside a Hello Wedding November 27, 2018

So many times, I am asked, “what makes a wedding stand out from the rest?” My immediate answer is that it’s the personal touches that truly make it special. From the moment I met Jess and Nate, I knew their wedding would be one for the books.

Jess and Nate live in New York City, but were returning to their roots in Pittsburgh for their big day. The bride and groom met in college at Penn State and Nate has been making Jess (and everyone around him,) laugh ever since. We had a beautiful day at Phipp’s Conservatory and Botanical Garden’s; sunny, blue skies and a light breeze were the perfect setting for this truly epic wedding.

 

The day was relaxed, but absolutely buzzed with excitement as Nate and Jess did a first look atop Hotel Monaco (Rachel Rowland Photography). Two hours later and guests from near and far started arriving to the outdoor garden for the ceremony. With both of her parents by her side, Jess walked down the aisle to Nate (who had the biggest smile on his face when he saw his bride!)

To make the ceremony all the more personal, our officiant was the cousin and very close friend of Jess. Jess and Nate choose to recite their own vows, and there was not a dry eye in the house (wedding planner included!) The love, honor and appreciation that these two have for each other speaks volumes of their relationship as now husband and wife.

 

Right after their grand entrance, our bride and groom welcomed all guests onto the dance floor to immediately get the party started. Friends and family were overjoyed to share this moment with them! Countless intoxicating smiles and guests jumping with joy and excitement was an all-night occurrence.

Parents of the bride gave a beautiful speech, translated into English by Jess’s cousin. The very last line of their speech was spoken in English, “Congratulations Jessy and Nate, we love you both very much.” I truly mean it when I say that I have never felt so much love at a wedding in my entire life.

 

The personal touches didn’t stop there! Nate and his brothers, (ever-so-talented musicians), surprised Jess and wedding guests by joining the 9-piece band on stage to perform live. (Sneaking around with trumpets and saxophones is not easy, but we did it thanks to help from our friends in Elite Showband!)

The celebration never stopped–dancing lasted well into the evening and guests remained at the reception until the very last minute. Jess and Nate had the exact recipe for the most flawless and personal wedding ever: a perfect day, joy, excitement and so much love. Congrats again to Jess and Nate!
