Have I sung the praises of a small bridal party to you yet? Emily and Will had 3 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen, 2 flowergirls and a ringbearer (Covid caused one of the groomsmen to have to be there in spirit only) – and gosh was that perfect.
Smaller bridal parties are more intimate and less hassle for you and we were able to create so many images in just an hour!
The day started at Emily and Will’s townhome in Cranberry and then we moved to the men at the Hilton Garden Inn in Cranberry. Then we all headed to church at St. Ferdinand’s in Cranberry.
I’ve been doing weddings for twelve years full time and I worked as an assistant before that (from 2004-2009), but in seventeen wedding seasons, I’d never been to the Stables at Conquenessing for a reception. It’s not a huge wedding venue and here in Pittsburgh, big weddings are the norm – but this venue can hold about 120-140 people and it’s very adorable, set next to a cool RV campground with so many photo spots. We were able to get a ton of locations within a block or two – a field, pine trees, a big hydrangea (thanks to the kind neighbor that let us use her yard), blue sky, woods, and a lake/pond. Next time, we will have to get that Kennywood-style paddle boat up and running!
The weather was 75 and just a smidge overcast and it doesn’t get better than that for a September wedding! What a gorgeous day and wonderful clients – makes my job a pleasure to do!

Note to the couple:

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Emily and Will, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! It was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
