A chance meeting at a party lead to a second chance at true love for Rose Peluso and Mark Daday. After nearly four years of dating, Mark popped the question with a little help from their cat, Coco. “He surprised me at Christmas by wrapping a red bow around our cat,” Rose explains. “Then, I saw something very sparkly.” Rose looked very sparkly herself on their wedding day, exuding luxurious elegance in her ornately detailed gown and complementing jewelry. Champagne-colored details glittered throughout LeMont Restaurant, which served as the ceremony and reception space, fitting the couple’s vision of a “Pittsburgh” theme. The breath-taking scenery at Mt. Washington added to the celebration in the city, highlighted even more so when a fabulous fireworks display lit up the night sky and shimmered over the rivers below. “We both love fireworks,” Rose says. “That was his surprise to me.”
