Talia Sartorio (27 and an office manager) and Clayton Delaney (28 and a UPS supervisor) met their freshman year of college at Penn State. After Talia transferred to the University of Pittsburgh, they kept in touch. They began dating their senior year of college and have been together ever since. One night, Clayton took Talia out to dinner. Little did she know that meanwhile, at their house, Talia’s parents were setting up roses and champagne for Clayton’s proposal. “When I opened the front door, I immediately started to cry, knowing then what was coming!” Talia and Clayton got married on May 1, 2013 at the Heinz Chapel on the University of Pittsburgh’s campus. Talia had always wanted to get married at the chapel because that was where her parents were married. “Our dreams came true when we were able to get it reserved!” Their reception took place at the LeMont Restaurant in Pittsburgh, PA, a restaurant known for its sweeping views of the city. “I could not have asked for a more beautiful view,” says Talia. The wedding’s color scheme was a clean and elegant combination of black, white and oyster gray, with muted green accents. A combination of tall glass and short silver centerpieces that held white floral arrangements of hydrangeas, roses and tulips gave the reception a regal aura. “Everything just came together perfectly.”
