We finished out our 2019 wedding season with Dr. and Dr. W! Sarah and Paul have been together over three years after meeting at the University of Pittsburgh and they like to travel, try new restaurants, and try out some of our area breweries! They got engaged on a walk in Mellon Park with their puppy Kona! They’re quiet and reserved and don’t love being the center of attention – I love their quiet calmness and sweetness toward each other!

We started off at the townhouses near the Priory for the prep before heading to St. Peter’s Church on Arch Street. Due to the combination of multiple parishes and consolidations in the Pittsburgh Diocese, we’ve been doing a lot of weddings at St. Peter’s of Arch Street and I love this church for its pretty light, long aisle, nice staircase, and good grounds right outside the door for photos at the edge of Allegheny Commons Park. Sarah wore her sister’s veil as a something borrowed.

One of my favorite memories from the day was seeing the guys gently tease a groomsman who put his whole vest on already buttoned – just pulled it right over his head like a t-shirt.

After church, we headed out to some of the best photo spots in town – the classic CMU Columns and then over to Mellon Park where these two were engaged. The reception featured a caricaturist and these beautifully lighted trees – my editor commented she wished all couples had those trees because it just lends such a great background for dancing and toast photos.

The rain started at the end of the night – so we snapped a few rain photos and one in the grand balcony near the organ before wishing the couple well!

I hope Mexico was amazing!

Note to the couple:
