Jorjetta and Ryan came together as husband and wife at a gorgeous venue, the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Spa. The couple meticulously planned their ceremony and reception to their liking. The ceremony took place outdoors, their reception space was beautifully decorated, and a top live wedding band performed for most of their day. There were plenty of outdoor spots for their photographer, Fineline Weddings, to capture the bride and groom in their element. We bet they will cherish those photos and memories for years to come, as well as the amazing performance by the John Parker Band!

The bride wore a mermaid style wedding dress. Her gown was ivory and the bodice was intricately woven in silver thread. She looked radiant in the soft light here, taken at the Chateau Lafayette, a hotel on the grounds of the venue. The bridal party was able to get ready for the day there before heading off to the ceremony.

What a pretty group of ladies! Their dresses were perfect for an evening of dancing; soft and light! The girls all carried bouquets similar to the bride’s.

We love the color scheme of the wedding- blue, gray, white, and pink. The groom wore a dark blue tux, with his groomsmen below in gray. So handsome and sophisticated, this group must have been ready for the night ahead with drinks, dinner, and dancing!

The ceremony was picturesque, outside on the grounds of the resort. For the ceremony a strings trio was provided by John Parker. The bride and groom exchanged their vows under a grand altar wrapped in satin and decorated with roses.

The ballroom was decorated with tall centerpieces by Neubauer’s Florist. Tables were covered in lace, gold silverware adorned the pearled chargers, and menus were tucked in gray napkins. The cake was the perfect addition to the decor, a decadent creation of white and pink.

John Parker Band announced the bridal party into the reception when it was time to enter the ballroom. The night was off to a great start as the bride and groom shared their first dance to “All of Me”. The dance floor was in the center of the room and everyone gathered around to watch the happy couple. Then, the groom shared a song he had picked out for his bride, “Gorchivo Vino”.

Throughout the night the bride and groom’s Greek and Bulgarian culture was celebrated with music and traditional customs. Guests had a blast as John Parker Band was able to play lots of Greek music & guests’s requests. The band also lead the tradition of breaking the bread. It’s a fun one- the mother’s of the groom and bride hold and feed the couple a portion of bread. Then the best man has to break the bread over their heads to see who will be the spender and bread winner!

Later in the evening guests had a blast during the money dance, another Greek tradition. The bride and groom were blessed with plenty of good fortune as their family and friends threw bills in the air! The band changed it up a bit to play top hits from today and some of the bride and groom’s favorite oldies, such as “Build Me Up Buttercup” and “September”. There certainly was something for everyone to enjoy and put on their dancing shoes. The party continued on late into the night with a fireworks display – even more dancing with the band – and THEN an after party, where John Parker Band acted as DJ.  What a night to remember!

Andy and Molly’s wedding was an upscale celebration at the Hotel Monaco. With many out of town guests, the couple knew they wanted to have their ceremony and reception in one location. The hotel accommodated all their wishes by providing a large ceremony space, rooftop cocktails, and beautiful ballroom.

The bride and groom envisioned an amazing party and there was no way to do that without a fantastic live band. The couple enlisted the premier John Parker Band to perform all evening long at their reception. Everyone enjoyed nonstop dancing, singing, and popular music!

We love this photo taken of the groom before seeing his bride. The couple chose to do a first look, which is when a bride and groom see each other before the ceremony. They were able to take many photos together with their photographer, Christina Montemurro.

The bride looked glamorous. Her dress was sleeveless with a high neckline, sparkly belt, and full skirt. Her bouquet was an array of gold, white, and yellow blooms. It was exquisitely done by  My Garden Floral.

Weddings are not just about the bride and groom, they are also about family. Jonathan and Elizabeth’s family were a part their special day. Many of their family members were in the bridal court. Their photographer, Jessica Vogelsang, captured some beautiful memories of the bond between the bride and her sisters, and the groom with the ring bearers. The couple chose a sophisticated venue for their reception, where they shared emotional dances with their parents, as the premier live wedding band, John Parker Band, performed.

The ladies looked lovely. The maids of honor wore silver sequin gowns and carried bouquets of white roses and gray flowers. The bride wore a sweetheart gown with lace and delicate beading.

The ring bearers wore blue jackets like the groom with beige pants and shoes. They held hands as they timidly walked down the aisle of the grand St. Michael’s of the Valley church. Soon they would not be so shy, out on the dance floor!

When a couple has impeccable taste, their wedding will no doubt be a glamorous affair. Laura and Louis had an amazing eye for detail and ear for music at their wedding at the Hotel Monaco. Their reception featured gold sequin tables, tall floral centerpieces, and a tasty dessert table.  Top wedding band, John Parker Band, was there to get the party started, and got all their guests fired up on the dance floor.

The ceremony took place at the stunning Saint Bernards, a huge cathedral church. Vows were exchanged in front of a large golden altar with an organ and pillar candles. The wooden pews were decorated with flowers and white sashes.

We just adore this couple! So happy and in love, their joy was captured in this gorgeous photo, taken by  Joey Kennedy. Louis looked sharp in his classy black tuxedo and Laura’s white satin dress, long veil, and diamond jewelry made her the perfect bride. Her bridal court wore black dresses and we love that they are not all wearing the same dress!

The bride’s bouquet featured roses, dahlias, and orchids. Leaves were spray painted gold, tying in the color scheme of their reception effortlessly. The same flowers were used to make up the floral centerpieces in the ballroom, done by Mt Lebanon Florist. Each vase was gold and had crystal beads hanging down, just the right touch of sparkle.
