July 28, 2012

Kathy Will and Joseph Gally Jr.; Kathy and Wayne Krenn

Leah and Scott’s wedding took place in the Walled Garden at Mellon Park (412/682-7275; pittsburghparks.org). Carleen Papa of Weddings Without Worries performed the non-denominational service, and the bride’s mother, a teacher at North Allegheny High School, arranged for North Allegheny’s string quartet to play throughout the ceremony. Afterward, guests enjoyed lemonade and other refreshments in the Phipps Garden Center (1059 Shady Ave., Shadyside; 412/441-4442, phipps.conservatory.org).

Primrose Flower Shop (203 Butler St., Etna; 412/696-0051, primroseflowershop.com) arranged pink and white roses, fuchsia stock and pink peonies for Leah’s bouquet.

Throughout the day, Dawn Biery (724/980-9872, dawnbiery.com) snapped pictures in various settings — including pre-ceremony shots at one of the couple’s favorite spots, Meat & Potatoes.

The bride chose a sophisticated Galina Signature gown from David’s Bridal (davidsbridal.com) that featured a lace overlay, chapel train and fit-and-flare silhouette. A beaded belt, also from David’s Bridal, was the perfect finishing touch.

Kay Doddato (412/860-5070; kdoddato@yahoo.com) styled Leah’s hair, and Kristen Colaizzi of Izzazu Salon (301 Fifth Ave., downtown; 412/325-1600, izzazu.com) applied her makeup.

Scott recited his vows wearing a gray Alfani suit and vest with a white tie, all from Macy’s (macys.com).

The couple celebrated their marriage with family and friends at the Duquesne Power Center (600 Forbes Ave., Uptown; 412/396-3516, duq.edu). Dinner was served by in-house caterer On the Bluff (412/396-6613), and included a dual entrée of chicken breast and roast beef served with asparagus and risotto. Glass bowls of floating fuchsia flower petals decorated the tables, along with table numbers ranging from 1984 to 2012, matched with photos of the bride and groom at different points in their lives.

Donna Beyerl provided a homemade white cake with raspberry filling and buttercream frosting, while Scott’s sister, Stacy Krenn, made the cake topper.

Vocalist Keaton Micucci led North Allegheny’s jazz quartet during the cocktail hour, and DJ Underdog (djunderdogpgh.com) played a wide assortment of music throughout the reception, including “Into the Mystic” by Van Morrison for the couple’s first dance and “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles for the father-daughter dance.
