Matea and James brought their Croatian and Ukrainian heritage to their wedding! The aesthetic of the day was champagne, dusty blue, and lots of neutrals – black/white/cream. They kept the colors muted and went with a timeless look.

Everyone got ready at the Hilton Garden Inn Southpointe – the ladies had the Green Room which I love. Then Matea and James did a first look and rode together to the church in Millvale. Matea was eager to get this show on the road and go see her husband!

After church, the band played in the parking lot for a celebration before we took off to CMU Columns for photos. Matea and James were into photos – so we did daytime portraits, a sunset sneak out, and a night session with sparklers. I love when couples allot lots of photo time!

Together, these two have an Australian shepherd (represented by their signature drink!) They first met through Tamburitzans at Duquesne – so you KNEW this dance floor was going to be wild! I loved their traditional circle where everyone showed off their best moves and tricks!

Note to the couple:
Matea and Jim, 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!
