Kelly & Matt - April 12th, 2008

I have to rewind the clock before I go into Kelly and Matt's wedding.
I had the opportunity to meet these two at Karrie and Daryl's wedding last August. (What a fun wedding that was.)
I was told that Karrie and Daryl are expecting their first child this September! Congratz again!

Next I need to let you know how great the staff was at Heinz Field. My two "go to" people were Kelley DiFilippo and Nikkie Feroce. These ladies run a "tight ship". If you are thinking about having a wedding at Heinz Field, these ladies are a huge asset to have on your side.

Keith Lewis was shooting the pictures for the day and Jeff Mansfield (724-423-7978) was taking video.



View of my setup from the head table. Clean, Classy and Elegant.


Kelly's Wedding Cake looked fantastic!


The wedding reception took place at the Heinz Field. (West Lodge) This was my first reception at Heinz field. These pictures do not do the location justice. The hall was simply breath taking. The candles along the windows was a nice touch.






Card Table . . . love all the candles. Might take the idea and go with it for my wedding this July. :)




Kelly and Matt's first dance as husband and wife.




Our best man Jeffery giving a very funny speech.




Kelly's Maid of Honor was also her sister. Katie's speech brought tears to many eyes. I have to admit, she got me with a couple tears also.



THE BIG SURPRISE!!!!
This was a huge secret we kept from Kelly and Matt. We had our own Charlie Batch "crash" their wedding reception.
After Katie's toast I got on the microphone and went along like nothing was going to happen. I asked for applause for the great toast we just received and before I got done all everyone heard was, "Wait...wait....wait...There's one more for tonight."
Charlie gave a great toast to Kelly and Matt. As you can see from the picture below he gave them a signed jersey for their wedding gift.


The very sneaky staff at Heinz filed handed out custom "Terrible Towels" to their guest upon entrance to the hall with out Kelly and Matt knowing.
What makes them custom? The back side of the towel had Kelly and Matt's name along with their wedding date. Very Cool.
I snapped these pictures while Charlie was showing his gift to the bridal party.



What a great surprise!! A toast by Charlie. . . .


Charlie chatting it up with Kelly and Matt.



Look at Kelly's eyes . . . Guess what she has in her hands!?! Charlie's Supper Bowl Ring!!!!

From this picture it looks like Matt is trying to decide to give the Super Bowl ring back or run like heck.



Kelly along with her father Bill in the Father / Daughter Dance.
