Liz + Karl | The Country Club of York

Congratulations to Liz + Karl! Our favorite part of the day was when Liz surprised her father by wearing her mother’s wedding dress for the father daughter dance!

Proposal story told by Liz: It was just the two of us and we cooked dinner together before going to a concert. Later that evening, we were walking to a concert downtown and were passing over a walkway that has a great view of downtown Pittsburgh. As I was taking in the moment, Karl proceeded to open a small box with an engagement ring in it. I was in such disbelief that I didn’t hear him/don’t remember him asking me to marry him. Per my emotional response, Karl assumed I said “yes.”

Congratulations to Meghan + Jacob!  It was truly the perfect day for a wedding at the stunning Riverdale Manor! The way this couple looks at each other is one of our favorite things about them!

Proposal story written by Jacob: First off… it was a train wreck. I spent a few weeks loosely planning and got more and more nervous having the ring in my possession. So day of, we went for a hike. Unfortunately, all vegetative wildlife is dead in late March. Gray, brown, dreary. The “beautiful” pond was scum-covered to the point that algae wouldn’t willingly inhabit it. Followed this failure with a trip to the Indian Echo Caverns. That would have been the best spot of the day. Beautiful sites, quiet. However, she did not want proposed to in front of people (I took it to the extreme of meaning anyone, she meant a large crowd, oops). I was pulling the ring out of my pocket when an unsuspecting tour group member turned around and walked back to us right as I was about to pop the question. Well, panic mode set in. Abort!! Abort!! Abort!! No more opportunities at the caverns, so I’m in full freak out mode trying to keep it calm in front of her and make further plans on the fly. At this point, we have tickets for Beauty and the Beast, so we leave there and head to the theater. Arrive at the theater just in time, so Meghan is sprinting in, and I yell at her to come back. In full panic mode standing behind her car, that’s where I decide to pop the question. I’ve never been one to plan well….
