Jenn + Mario: Heinz History Center Pittsburgh Wedding

Check out Jenn and Mario’s Heinz History Center wedding!

The couple chose this {always awesome} venue because it shows Pittsburgh’s rich history.

They wanted to celebrate the town where they met and fell in love.

The idea of their decor was to mix their two completely different personalities.

Jenn, the city girl girl, inspired the glam. Mario, the country boy, inspired the introduction of natural elements.

Even though one would picture the venue as a classy and glamorous/fun location, the greenery really fit in!


Also, pile of donuts for a cake, and a surprise giant one for the groom. That is all it takes to win us over!


These two, even though so different, are completely in love. It was very obvious.

Jenn’s favorite thing about Mario is that he winks at her when he thinks no one is looking.

It has always been their little moment together, despite all of the other people in the room. It is really special to her. Its like no one else in the rooms matters at that split second.

We hope that you got ton’s of winks Jenn! We could clearly see how much you and Mario adore each other!


What is the best advice from the newlyweds?

“Wait for the one that thinks you’re perfect just the way you are (farts and all)”

Couldn’t have said it any better.

Congratulations you guys!
