ON THE BRIDE
Tracey wore a Saison Blanch Couture strapless silk dress accented with crystal buttons and crystals around the waist from Bridal Beginnings (450 Cochran Road, Mount Lebanon; 412/343-6677, bridalbeginnings.com). Tracey borrowed a bridesmaid’s veil from a close friend and wore a handkerchief and garter made from her grandmother’s wedding dress.
ON THE GROOM
Josh wore a classic tux from After Hours Formalwear (various locations; 800/616-8897, afterhours.com).
Jeannie Donkowski, the wedding coordinator at Pittsburgh Airport Marriott (777 Aten Road, North Fayette; 412/788-8800, marriott.com) helped Tracey and Josh pull together their dream event. The cocktail hour was held outside, then more than 225 guests moved inside for dinner and a night of dancing that lasted well past midnight.
Moio’s (4209 William Penn Highway, Monroeville; 412/372-6700, moios.com) created a cake of four tiers with white icing and crystals. The cake was topped with fresh flowers.
Tracey’s best friend’s father, Vito DiSalvo, provided musical entertainment early in the evening as part of We Three Band (412/653-4838, wethreeband.com), which plays Italian music, including accordion. Later, We Three began alternating with disc jockey Nick Funn (nickfunn.com) when the dancing started, offering something to match every guest’s taste.
