Angela + CJ | Heinz Chapel & Mansions on Fifth

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!

Wintery Valentine’s Day Shoot

Wintery Valentine's Day Shoot

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!!

Heart Warming Love | Styled Shoot

Heart Warming Love | Styled Shoot

It is probably not even possible that you did not see these photos yet! Let’s face it, they blew up the internet last week! The Perfect Palette featured them last Friday and Strictly Weddings featured it on their Facebook page, bringing in a mere 56,000 likes!! What?! That may be the biggest thing of my career so far and all over a shoot that has been swimming in my head for over a year and that I put together with a couple of super talented local wedding vendors in under a week!

Who wouldn’t be impressed by a red dress, on a beautiful girl, on a snow covered path with an amazing floral crown?! It was seriously the stuff that fairy tales are made of! So excited to share these photos with you on my blog and to see more head over to The Perfect Palette. Blown away by the response!

Thank you to:

Urban Sophisticated Winter Styled Shoot | Carnegie Science Center

Urban Sophisticated Winter Styled Shoot | Carnegie Science Center

I have been sooo excited to share this shoot with you, but I was waiting until it was revealed by the amazing blog The Perfect Palette which featured the session at the beginning of this week! So many amazing people came together to make this shoot what it was! I could not be more impressed by the talent of each and every vendor that was involved.

Let’s face it, Pittsburgh is coooold in the winter and so many couples completely write off getting married November – April. As a group we knew that there are so many beautiful options for winter weddings and they should absolutely not be overlooked! When else can you snuggle in a plaid, wool blanket with your honey and a nice gooey, warm smore?

We also wanted to showcase an untraditional venue that offered a stunning urban view. When wedding planning I am sure that people gloss over the Carnegie Science Center when searching for that perfect spot, but the location, the amenities and the uniqueness are something to not be missed.
We knew that we wanted urban sophistication with an aspect of glamour. Gold and silver highlighted with rich red florals and scattered with a hint of a starry night theme were the perfect compliment to the blank slate that the science center offers. Can you imagine the wonder of your guests getting to view their own starry night in the planetarium as part of your scheduled events?

We knew that we wanted to bring in the gold to the dress and were thrilled to have BBG Couture design something one of a kind for us. The illusion neckline with gold lace brought all of the elegance of the event together and it was the perfect compliment to the lush florals.

Seriously, who wants to plan a winter wedding with this color scheme now?!

Make sure to check out all of these featured vendors!

George & Sam – George Peabody Library Baltimore MD

George & Sam - George Peabody Library Baltimore MD

Sam is one of the funniest people I have ever met. There is absolutely no way that you can be in a room with him and he will not have you crack a smile. He is also superbly eloquent and can tell you some fantastic stories. I have only met him a couple of times, but he is one of those people that always sticks with you and that is why I was so excited when he called me to ask me to photograph his wedding to his dear George.

And George, how he adores Sam. You can absolutely see the twinkle in his eye when Sam speaks and how tender his heart is for him. There is no doubt in my mind that they were absolutely made for one another and they compliment each other so well.

The wedding and reception took place at the George Peabody Library in Baltimore Maryland; a venue that took my breath away. Just take a look for yourself. What an absolute perfect day to witness these two, so in love, make their vows to one another. Thank you Sam & George for including us in your day. xoxo Jenni
