What a beautiful, warm, sunny November day for a wedding celebration… complete with sparklers! Elizabeth Thompson and Dan Saraceno exchanged their wedding vows at 2:30 on Saturday, November 5, 2011 at the Elfinwild Church in Glenshaw, Pennsylvania. Their ceremony was officiated by Dr. Robert Tuttle.
Their reception, which took place at The Mansion, in Butler, Pennsylvania, began at 5:15, with guests enjoying cocktails until Dan and Elizabeth’s arrival, along with their bridal party, in The Pittsburgh Molly’s Trolley. Following the cutting of their wedding cake, formal introductions took place, with parents, the bridal party and the bride and groom all entering to “Party Rock Anthem”, by LMFAO. Immediately following their introduction, Dan and Elizabeth shared their first dance together as husband and wife, accompanied by “You And Me”, by Dave Matthews.
I had the pleasure of working with Gene Yuger, owner of Photorise Photography and Dave from Quick Pix! Photo Booth, as well as wedding planner, Erin Calvimontes, owner of Divine Celebrations, who expertly coordinated the event.
After dinner, which was prepared by the wonderful staff at Carson’s Catering, Elizabeth shared a special dance with her father, Jeff, accompanied by “The Way You Look Tonight”, by Frank Sinatra. Dan then shared a special dance with his mother, Cheryl, accompanied by “I Hope You Dance”, by Lee Ann Womack.
The bridal party then joined Dan and Elizabeth on the dance floor, accompanied by “Forever”, by Chris Brown. All of the guests were also invited to join them, which kicked off open dancing.
At 9:00, while “Firework” by Katie Perry played in the background, all of Dan and Elizabeth’s guests were invited outside to light sparklers and have a special photo taken by their photographer, Gene Yuger.
It was a perfect evening at The Mansion, concluding with all of Dan and Elizabeth’s guests joining them for the last dance of the evening, accompanied by their chosen song, “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”, by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes… followed by Dan’s last request, “Party Rock Anthem”, by LMFAO!
Dan and Elizabeth will enjoy their honeymoon on the exotic Turks and Caicos Islands!
