Power Center Ballroom Pittsburgh Wedding - Bride and Groom Holding Hands in Park

Drew and Antoinette threw an exciting wedding that was classically styled with a little pinch of glamour. To keep up the fun, party atmosphere they wanted at their reception, the newlyweds sought the help (and tunes) of the John Parker Band!

Be sure to take a look through the knockout photographs of this happy day, taken by the generous Studio Bash.

The traditional Roman Catholic ceremony took place at the awe-inspiring Saint Paul Cathedral. As the bride walked down the aisle, her long train and cathedral veil trailed behind her, giving her a striking appearance that could even compete with the beauty of the church. Beneath the epic archways and high vaulted ceilings, the loving couple said their vows before friends, family, and God.

After exiting the church, it was on to the reception venue: the Power Center Ballroom. Wedding coordinator Karen White deserves many compliments for ensuring that everything was in order! The room had been decorated in tasteful white and accessorized with dazzling details, such as tall vases filled with pink roses and bows tied neatly around the chairs. It was the perfect setting for a formal dinner. Of course, once dinner came to a close, it was time for the much-anticipated party to begin!

Always happy to meet couples planning for their big day, John Parker, of The John Parker Band, participated in the Southern Ocean County & Long Beach Island area’s “Wedding Road Show“.  Having spent many months of every year of his life in L.B.I., and having played many Long Beach Island weddings, John is at home on this beautiful Island. “LBI gets in your blood, & once you’re hooked,  there’s really nowhere else quite like it!” John says.  LBI, long-known as an upscale beach destination, is ever increasing in popularity for weddings.

Organized by the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, this year’s show was graciously hosted by the Boat House, a fun and casual, yet elegant and enchanting, bayside restaurant & wedding venue in Beach Haven.  Drawing hundreds of brides & grooms– all excitedly anticipating their own weddings– the Wedding Road Show is an unparalleled New Jersey Beach Wedding resource. Music, entertainment, venues, food…the best of the best opportunities were ALL there!

Throughout the day, John met with brides, grooms, and their families (his cutie kids & future bandmates Sara and Wes helped when things got busy!!).




After being married at Sacred Heart Church, Jessica and Adrian, along with their family and friends, celebrated at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s Music Hall Foyer. This amazing venue was the perfect backdrop for the Bride and Groom.

Guests enjoyed the music of a pianist (and a surprise dance!) during cocktail hour in the Balcony Foyer before moving to the main hall. With Pittsburgh’s top wedding band and event performer John Parker and The John Parker Band providing awesome entertainment, there was surly no shortage of special moments for Brian Reid of Reid Portraits to capture (a sampling of those photos is below) Jessica and Adrian’s guests danced all night!

A venue this majestic is pretty much all you need for a great wedding. Fun family, friends & great music doesn’t hurt either!
