Tara is one of my absolute favorite people in the world. You cannot be in a room with her and not catch on to her infectious energy. When she sent me a text with will you be my bridesmaid crossed out and photographer written in, I knew that I was in for the most fun day ever! It is not hard to understand quickly why her and Matt compliment each other so well. I don’t think they left the dance floor or each other the entire evening and being able to have that much fun together is the best showing of love!
The new Pittsburgh downtown Embassy Suites is such a beautiful venue. Tara and Matt opted to do a first look and then we headed out for portraits in the city streets. Strawberry Way and it’s painted street is one of my favorite city spots!
The ceremony with the Babie’s Breath arch by Community Flower Shop was gorgeous. The modern and neutral decor of the Embassy Suites is so elegant. Tara’s hair and makeup was perfectly executed by Justine with Beauty Justified and those awesome skyline invites by Lauren at Noteworth Invitations were the perfect precursor for the weekend. Of course the dancefloor was packed all night with Andy Booth as DJ!
Just in love with these two and their photos! Hope you enjoy!
Even though this wedding took place in November, it gives me all of the Valentine’s day feels! Those lush red and pink florals created by The Farmer’s Daughter, the sweet and romantic look created by Hannah Conard Beauty and the beautiful backdrop of Heinz Chapel, Mellon Park and Mansions on Fifth. I was seriously swooning all day long! I hope that you have the most amazing day with your loved ones!
When I first met Katy and Brian we clicked. Katy was absolutely positive about what she wanted her wedding day to look like and her vision came to life even better then I think she could have imagined. The Omni at Bedford Springs is already an amazing backdrop, but when you add in a bright color palette and The Farmer’s Daughter on florals and Erin Alexander on stationery, you know you are in for a real treat.
Each bouquet and centerpiece was unique and stunning. The outdoor ceremony space was instantly transformed into a colorful celebration of their sweet love story. Because everything was at the same location, Katy and Brian opted to do a first look. What better location to meet your love on your wedding day then then the bridge that overlooks the grand entrance at the Omni. They had a beautiful private moment together before joining their bridal party and family to do portraits beforehand.
The beautiful outdoor ceremony was personal with a close friend officiating and another crooning them with her voice and ukelele and the reception was a celebration with close friends and family with a dance floor that cannot be rivaled.
The entire day was so beautifully executed and we were thrilled to be a part of the day. The details were just so incredible that there are many, many photos of them! Enjoy!
This session was just TOO fun to not revisit again this year. The floral crown ALONE is worth two, three, TEN features! Stephanie of The Blue Daisy Floral hit the ball out of the park with that creation! Hannah Conard Beauty did a number on the hair and makeup and my models for the day were beyond amazing!
It is freezing this weekend, almost as cold as it was on this day! Thankfully they had each other to keep warm. I LOVE the red dress against the snow. Just everything fell together perfectly and it is still one of my favorite sessions! Hope you enjoy seeing these again as much as I do! Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with those that you love today and stay warm!!
