Kara and Malek were married on a beautiful Sunday in August. We first met Kara almost four years ago when she was a maid of honor in her friend Emily’s wedding.

The couple met in Denver, Colorado and Malek proposed to Kara in front of the Bean at Millennium Park in Chicago.

Kara and Malek got ready at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center and then walked across the street to Heinz Chapel for their ceremony. At the Wyndham University Center, Kara and her girls used a junior suite for getting ready. This is a great size room for a larger bridal party. For future clients, we also recommend king rooms for getting ready over the rooms with two double beds.

Before the ceremony started, Kara and Malek shared a first touch and prayed together. One of Kara’s bridesmaids sang during the ceremony with her husband accompanying her.

After the ceremony, the couple and their bridal party had their portraits taken at the Cathedral of Learning and CMU columns. Everything was in walking distance so it was easy to work with the couple and their large bridal party – 12 attendants on either side and 2 flower girls! We hopped off the limo at Mt. Washington as one last stop on the way to the reception at the LeMont.

The couple shared their first dance to “Love is Here to Stay” by Frank Sinatra. At the end of the night the couple got a few photos of the beautiful Pittsburgh skyline all lit up.

Note to the couple:
