Megan and Jason had their wedding day last November at two of the most beautiful venues in town, The Cathedral of the Incarnation and The Noelle Hotel. This fun and relaxed couple from Pittsburgh really know how to throw a party and we can’t wait to share it with you!
Megan started the day with her close family and friends at Hunter Paige salon getting hair and makeup done. After they were all beautified, they came to the Noelle Hotel to get Megan into her bridal gown and ready to go see her groom at the first look.
Meanwhile, Jason arrived at the hotel too and put on his finishing touches before seeing his beautiful bride for the first time that day.
Once the soon to be newlyweds were all dressed and ready, they shared their emotional first look in the Trade Room of the hotel. Look at the back of that dress!!!!
Bride and Groom Photos
Megan and Jason spent some time in the hotel and right outside in the famous Printer’s Alley in downtown Nashville taking some photos before heading off to the church for the ceremony.
How cute is this jacket?!
The church is already a gorgeous spot for a wedding and with a few added touches, it was ready for Megan and Jason to tie the knot.
Megan and Jason opted to do a full mass for their wedding with 90 of their closest friends and family.
Wedding Reception Details
After the ceremony, the guests traveled to the hotel to indulge in some cocktails before the bride and groom arrived. The cocktail area was in the Trade Room, the same place they had their first look.
Megan has a major love for Joe Diffie (R.I.P.) and had some little hints of him throughout their decor. She also really loves rocking a pin so these favors for the guests were the perfect choice.
The reception was just behind the large wooden doors with the tables set up in a Gatsby theme!
Have you heard about the Pittsburgh cookie tradition? Friends and family of the couple divi up different kinds of cookies to make for the occasion and they are all set out at the reception with to-go baggies for the guests to take what they want!
When Megan and Jason arrived, they were greeted with probably the best cake ever, a cheese cake! Not a cheesecake, but an tiered cake made of actual cheese. The two of them sliced into their cake and then the guests were able to dig in too.
The guests were able to enjoy dinner stations after this, while they waited for the speeches and bride and groom to share their first dance. After that, the bride and groom each shared a dance with their father and mother and then the dance floor opened with some tunes played by the Bobby Cool Band.
Another tradition that Megan wanted to incorporate was the Polish money dance. It’s very similar to a standard money dance, where if you give a donation to the couple you get a few seconds to dance with them. However with this one, they also got a Terrible Towel branded with the Ott’s wedding date and the tune is much more upbeat.
Megan and Jason, you were a pleasure to work with and we wish you an amazing life as husband and wife!
