Carnegie Music Hall Foyer Wedding
Cat & Ross had a breathtaking wedding at the Carnegie Music Hall Foyer at the Carnegie Museum this past weekend. On Friday, we kicked off the weekend at the LeMont Restaurant for the rehearsal dinner. It was such a sweet and intimate evening shared with their closet friends and family- not to mention an AWESOME way to snap some family portraits so there was more time to celebrate on Saturday! The LeMont was the perfect way to kick start the weekend, especially with those killer Pittsburgh skyline views.
Saturday was simply a dazzling, elegant, & classic affair. Cat looked amazing in her Hayley Paige gown with a stunning cathedral length veil- which might I add, looked UNBELIEVABLE when she walked down the isle in Heinz Memorial Chapel. Bridesmaids wore classic black floor length gowns which only added to the elegant factor. Guests then headed over dine and dance at Carnegie Music Hall Foyer (one of my favorite Pittsburgh venues!). AND get this, Cat’s uncle baked the cake in his hotel room! He is a baker and was traveling in, had the supplies shipped in and made it here in Pittsburgh! How awesome.
How we met (By Catherine): Ross and I met at a gym in his hometown about fifteen minutes north of the city. I was working there at the front desk for a semester while I was in between my psychology and nursing degrees at Pitt. Every day for a month he would come up to the desk and talk to me about anything and everything. We found out that we had some mutual friends in Pittsburgh and thought it was funny that we had never crossed paths before. Finally, after about a month of small talk, Ross asked me on a date and the rest is history!
How we met (By Ross): Catherine and I met at the gym where I was working. I’ll never forget the first time I saw Catherine, she was absolutely stunning. Being as shy as I was at the time, I’d find excuses to be at the front desk and make small talk with her over just about anything. We had mutual friends in Pittsburgh and from my alma mater, Elon. After what felt like an eternity of mustering up the courage, I asked her out on our first date! To say I was nervous would be a dramatic understatement, thankfully she agreed to a second date and now here we are almost 5 years later!
