That's what Julia said when I asked her to name the most important part of her wedding day.
It is a theme that Julia & Matt incorporated into every single part of their wedding: from nieces and nephews in the bridal party to Julia's mother officiating their gorgeous Carnegie Museum ceremony, to a glorious outdoor reception in Schenley Plaza (complete with carousel!), Julia & Matt wanted to make sure their family had the time of their lives. There were children everywhere. Literally EVERYWHERE. And it made for the most epic dance-party of all time. There is truly nothing like the carefree move-busting of a 3-year-old to make everyone cut loose. See pictures below for evidence.
Most of their family and friends are from out of town, and it was important to the two lovebirds to not only invite them to witness their love, but to fall in love themselves with the Steel City. Cue: Yinzer cookie table, Prantl's bakery Burnt Almond Torte wedding cake, and love locks for the Schenley Bridge! And ending the night with Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" didn't hurt, either.
Julia & Matt are two of the most gracious and loving people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting, let alone working with. Their wedding goes down in the books as one of the most beautiful, heartfelt and joyous celebrations I've been a part of. But you probably shouldn't take my word for it.
