Brooklyn bride meets Pittsburgh garden wedding
From our bride: "Danny and I live in New York, but we decided to get married in Pittsburgh, where I grew up and where my parents live. We're so glad we did! It was so special showing our friends and families a city that we both love. I'm not the kind of bride who relished the idea of spending tons and tons of time planning a wedding, so doing so from another city also allowed us to take a pretty laid back approach to everything. I wanted our wedding to have a garden party feel to it, so the Pittsburgh Golf Club, which sits on a golf course in the largest park in the city, was the perfect setting. The Golf Club and the Church of the Epiphany, where we were married, are both Pittsburgh historic landmarks, so we wanted to the wedding to have a simple, timeless feel. We incorporated a lot of items and traditions from both of our families—I wore necklaces from his grandmother and my grandmother, and my wedding band was my other grandmother's. I also carried a white lace handkerchief with my bouquet, a tradition from his family."
