St Peter Catholic Church in Steubenville, OH was the beginning of our Saturday adventures!
This beautiful basilica styled church is on the National Register of Historic Places, and it is quite a site to see.
“The present church is the result of three major remodeling projects, but still retains the 1907 stained glass windows, made in Munich, Germany, as well as the marble altars, statues, and Communion rail imported from Italy. The 15 major stained glass windows are very rare, depicting the mysteries of the Rosary. The dome rises 95 feet from the marble mosaic floor, and the center aisle is 75 feet long. The overall design of St. Peters is of the French Renaissance style of architecture, cruciform in shape. It was designed by Emil Ulrich of Cleveland, Ohio, and features two towers rising 145 feet. The exterior was built of Amherst and stone, and the structural parts of the roof, towers, and dome are of steel which was made in the area. In 1993 a one million-dollar renovation took place under the direction of Msgr. Lucianna, to restore the roof, dome, towers, and exterior stone.” (For more information please visit the church’s website by clicking here.)
Our bride, Tiffany, was all about pink. She carried a big fluffy bouquet of light pink peonies, and her 12 bridesmaids carried more of the fluffy pink peonies with white roses and eucalyptus.
Tiffany & Patrick’s adorable flower girl wore a beautiful halo of baby’s breath and pink spray roses. Her hair had been adorned with lovely pearl pins that accented the halo perfectly.
The reception was held at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott in the grand ballroom. A graceful, tall pink blooming tree greeted guests as they entered the reception.
Both high and low centerpieces were utilized to give the ballroom interest. The centerpieces included blush pink roses, hydrangeas, gold tipped eucalyptus, and the same fluffy pink peonies as the bridal party flowers.
Gold chiavari chairs completed the very elegant look.
To our new Mr & Mrs, we wish you many years of happiness!
