Heather and Kyle – Married on September 26, 2015 at Saint Norbert’s Church and the reception following was held at The Sheraton Station Square. The couple met while attending The University of Pittsburgh and both were on the Track and Cross Country Teams. Kyle proposed over the Thanksgiving holiday at Valley Green Park where they would have a run while visiting Heather’s family in Philadelphia. One moment at the ceremony that will never be forgotten was Heather getting chocked up and was unable to say the vows. The reception was the couple’s favorite part of the day, after saying hello to everyone they could finally just enjoy the night with friends and family. “In all honesty, our DJ at Guarino Group was our favorite vendor to work with. The music selection and the whole vibe of the night was perfect,” says Heather. “Our guests did not stop complimenting us on that and the food.” The coupled honeymooned in the beautiful St. Lucia in The Caribbean. Heather offers some advice to future brides by saying, “Planning is the most stressful, on your day it’s all said and done, whatever happens then you have no control over. Go with the flow, have fun and take it all in because it goes by so fast and you are just wanting time to slow down.” Heather and Kyle look forward to recalling their wedding memories on their 1st anniversary by spending a night at The Sheraton.
