Real Weddings, the wonderful Ali and AJ featured in Pittsburgh Magazine

It's finally here! Ali and I have been talking about this for months. It is an honor to be a part of Pittsburgh Magazine's Wedding issue that came out on Valentine's Day. You can see the wedding of the fabulous Ali and AJ Dorogi featured in the "Real Weddings" section. They were wed this past summer on June 30th at the St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in the Strip District. The beautiful flowers were from Kerry Kennedy of KS Kennedy Distinctive Floral on the North Side and the cake was made by Carol’s Cakes in Aliquippa. You can pick one of these magazines up at your local Giant Eagle, Barnes and Nobel or CVS to check this issue out yourself!

A Pittsburgh Themed Wedding

My first Pittsburgh themed wedding was with Diana and Ryan, aka the new Mr. and Mrs. Woodske!  The ceremony was held in the heart of Pittsburgh's Polish Hill at the gorgeous Immaculate Heart of Mary church.  (There was a bird in the basement area where the girls were supposed to enter.  As myself and assistant Ryan Zarichnak waited for the bridal party to arrive, my fear of birds strongly showed as it took flight a few times.  When the girls arrived, we all decided it was best to just wait in the hallway. I won't share the photo Ryan got of me having a panic attack, hahaha.)

This wedding day was a scorcher in the Burgh so we moved quickly to keep everyone cool.  On our way to the reception at Heinz Field, we took a few photos on the Riverwalk.  Ducky Tour passengers yelled "Congratulations, QUACK QUACK" as they drove by.  One of the great thing about having a reception at Heinz Field, is that they allow the bridal party on the field and in the locker room for photos.  We definitely had a blast with this as you can see below.

Keeping the Pittsburgh theme going, the newlyweds walked into the reception as the DJ played Donnie Iris' "Love is Like a Rock."  You got a view of the city from your dinner seats and guests could enter the stadium for some fresh air and photos.  The bride, groom, bridal party, friends and family all kept the dance floor full as the night went on.  Heres to Ryan and Diana, Congratulations!

Behind the Scenes of Work Hard Play Hard

As promised, here are some behind the scenes shots from Wiz Khalifa's Work Hard Play Hard music video! The bar scenes were shot in Pittsburgh's own Bar 11 in the South Side on Bradish & 11th Street. If you have not been there before, it's a crazy unique spot you do not want to miss out on! A discoball helmet, drums, candy necklaces, toys and glow in the dark name tags... Thursday, June 21st is the infamous "Summer Solstice Party" (also known as the "Rain Party,") that is featured in the music video. Get your bathing suits out and hit up Bar 11 for the time of your life, honestly. I hope you enjoy the behind the scene look below :) #TGOD!

I forgot to mention, they blow fire and light the bar on fire as well!
