Venue Love, Grand Ballroom at Cornerstone Commons

Brides! If you are searching for the absolutely perfect venue for an indoor ballroom style wedding reception, you have come to the right place!

I first stepped inside the Grand Ballroom at Cornerstone Commons when I attended my cousins wedding in 2012. When I was asked to photograph the space a year later, I couldn’t believe the amazing transformation the ballroom had undergone! JPC Event group, the visionary behind it all, has truly transformed this space into an elegant and glamourous wedding venue. Located just 30 minutes North of Pittsburgh, the Grand Ballroom at Cornerstone Commons is a unique and affordable choice for discerning brides not willing to compromise on professionalism and style.

JPC Event Group’s seemingly endless flow of creativity and extensive selection of props, tableware, flowers and furnishings can transform your Grand Ballroom wedding  to an upscale event that exceeds your vision and expectations!

Below are photos from the Grand Ballroom’s Open House that took place this past summer. Take a look for yourself to see one of the amazing ballroom looks  JPC  can create!

Hitchburgh, An Indie Bridal Show, Pittsburgh Artisanal Bridal Show

Last month I had the honor and privilege of being invited to photograph the very first ever, Hitchburgh bridal show!

What is Hitchburgh you ask? Hitchburgh has been described as “the indie alternative to wedding expo craziness”.  Its intimate. It’s handcrafted. It’s locally sourced. It’s a community of artisanal wedding vendors.

Who is Hitchburgh for? Hitchburgh was created with the idea of seeking out engaged couples who are truly looking for unique options for wedding vendors for their big day. Hitchburgh is a community of uncommon and locally sourced wedding vendors just for you!

Hitchburgh guests were welcomed at the door of Wigle Whiskey, the setting of the very first Hitchburgh event! The theme was “Urban Whimsy”. A big thank you to the “tastemakers” for having me photograph and document this special day that I was so honored to be a part of!
