Caitlin and Steven were setup on a date by their mothers. It sounds old-fashioned, especially since their mothers were childhood friends. Steven had traveled in Egypt with the help of some travel guides. Since Caitlin was planning to study abroad in Egypt, their moms thought that they should get together to exchange books and information. Caitlin did receive the books before her trip, but she and Steven didn’t meet until her semester was over. When she returned to Pittsburgh, Steven had no interest in meeting “some college girl” in Pittsburgh, but he was eager to hear about her trip that coincided with the Egyptian Revolution 0f 2011. Obviously, they both had something interesting the share and their moms had a good idea to get them together. Maybe they’ll make it back to Egypt some day!?
Caitlin and Steven were married at St Paul’s Cathedral in Oakland. After the wedding, we stopped for some wedding portraits in perfect fall light in Schenley Park. Our next stop was Carnegie Museum for a few more portraits where they were nearly (!) crushed by a piano. Thankfully they survived for their grand entrance into the stunning Carnegie Music Hall Foyer. Steven Vance provided the evening’s entertainment including a jazz trio and fantastic live music performance. Guests had a great time at the reception. I’ll be posting more proof later this week when I share some of their photos from ShotBox.
Thank you to Nicki for providing such excellent photography and lighting assistance throughout the day.
Congratulations, Steven and Caitlin!
