As the owner of Anne Gregory for The Bride, Greg Cherico has been helping Pittsburgh’s brides feel beautiful on their big day for more than 18 years. So, when his partner of nine years, Brian Crouch, announced their engagement at a dinner party amongst friends, the couple called upon their experience in the industry to create their ideal wedding! Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto officiated Greg and Brian’s private ceremony at his office, where the couple, who met on a blind date, exchanged vows and white gold and rose gold rings from fellow South Hills establishment Rossi e Rossi. On their way to the reception, the duo shared one of their favorite, surprising moments from the day when their wedding photo shoot Downtown took a hilarious turn. “A group of ladies who were complete strangers photo-bombed our wedding pictures!” Greg says. The good times continued at The Duquesne Club, where guests dined together and enjoyed a classic and intimate celebration, hosted by the couple’s friend, Jackie Rossi. And to conclude the festivities, Greg and Brian packed up their two dogs and headed up to Lake Erie, where they spent their week-long honeymoon at their lake house along the shoreline.
