A trumpeter supplied the music as Karen walked down the aisle of Mount Lebanon Christian Church (367 Cedar Blvd., Mount Lebanon; 412/531-8554). The Rev. Sarah Webb officiated.


A perfect view of the city was the backdrop for a stunning reception at the Sheraton Station Square (300 W. Station Square Drive, Station Square, South Side; 412/261-2000, starwoodhotels.com). Fireworks, courtesy of that evening’s Pirates game, added flair to the event. At the reception, the couple provided a photo booth from Fairytale Videography (805 12th St., New Brighton; 866/591-2797, fairytalevideography.com). Guests took home photo strips as favors while the couple enjoys candid copies of their friends and family. After dinner, the party enjoyed a full-service ice-cream-sundae bar from Page Dairy Mart (4600 E. Carson St., South Side; 412/431-0600), complete with personalized M&Ms.


The bride carried an all-white bouquet of roses and orchids. Splashes of vibrant pinks were also carried through to reception centerpieces by Reed & Petals Florist (10339 Perry Highway, Wexford; reedandpetals.com, 724/940-2200).
