This week, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out with her new son while wearing a Jenny Packham dress. Jenny Packham’s dresses are beautiful – just ask Kristin! Kristin chose a stunning bridal gown from the designer to wed Brian in an afternoon ceremony at Heinz Chapel on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh.

Kristin works in the corporate offices of a major fashion retailer – and I just knew her personal style would come through and make her day beautiful with all of the detailing and styling.

Brian added a nice touch when he sent Kristin a sweet message in a little bottle that morning – everyone was tearing up.

While the ladies finished their hair and makeup, we gathered the guys together on the edge of Pitt’s campus for a few shots.

Kristin got dressed with the help of her bridesmaids and then it was time for a big reveal with her father.

Kristin’s gown, veil, and floral worked so well together – cathedral-length veils are perfect for the majesty of Heinz Chapel.

Each bridesmaid’s bouquet was unique!

The ceremony at Heinz Chapel was followed by their reception at Phipps. Kristin and Brian made handmade candles as favors for each guest in unique glasses and china!

This is one of my favorite photos – the lighting was so beautiful behind Phipps, perfect for a summertime wedding!

From their introductions until the very last dance, there was so much enthusiasm and excitement in the room at the reception!

The sun had just set, giving the evening that deep blue sky, as they cut their wedding cake!

And as the night ended, there was a private moment alone in the Conservatory for Brian and Kristin – Brian actually is the one that suggested a few evening shots for just the two of them alone.

Congratulations to a very sweet bride and groom! I hope that nice long honeymoon was amazing – throughout the day, I saw nothing but smiles on your faces! I wish you so much happiness together and it was an honor to work with you!
