Bryan proposed after recreating his and Emily’s first date. They met at what was both of their first jobs after college. The couple spends a lot of time at North Park in the summer so they chose to have their November wedding at the Rose Barn. I was actually a groomslady in this wedding and photographed it (with the help of Alisa)!

Emily and Bryan describe themselves as “weird, laid back and unfiltered”. It was important to the couple that this wedding completely fit their personalities. It was untraditional, rustic and a lot of DIY. Bryan had a groomslady and Emily had a bridesman in their bridal party. Emily made her bouquet and her maids’ bouquets. The barn was beautifully decorated by the couple with hanging lights, hanging greenery, upcycled wine bottles, candles, chalkboard signs and painted pumpkins.

Emily and Bryan had a sweet and short ceremony. After the cermeony, the couple popped champagne with their bridal party before we took them around North Park for portraits. Emily’s parents’ dogs came and attended the ceremony and stayed for the reception too!

This couple kept things non-traditional and like a lot of couples now, they didn’t do a lot of “special” events at the reception, such as bouquet and garter toss, dollar dance, etc. Instead they had their friend and bridesman Brad DJ their evening while guests enjoyed their cocktails from their custom mason jar glass favors.

Note to the couple:

Emily and Bryan, than you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day! It was such an honor to be a groomslady for you and I am so glad we are family! 🙂 We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always! Congratulations!

Dominick enlisted the help of his and Natalie’s dog Penny to pop the question! A dog toy was engraved with “Will you marry me?” attached to Penny who greeted Natalie at the door. Dominick and Natalie were married in late October. The colors of navy, burgundy and gold were perfect for a fall wedding.

Natalie and her bridesmaids got their hair done at a salon before heading to the hotel to get dressed. Natalie got ready with the help of her mom and twin sister.

Dominick and Natalie exchanged cards before walking down the aisle at St. Michael’s Church in Elizabeth. Following the ceremony, Dominick and Natalie and their bridal party took photographs at White Oak Park. Included in the bridal party was a former KWP bride – Michelle- who is Dominick’s sister! On the way to the park, we stopped off in a field where the sunset was just perfect!

The reception was held at Antonelli Event Center with 350 of Dominick and Natalie’s family and friends. This couple is so sweet! We loved that Natalie shared a special dance with her mom at the reception! Antonelli’s always does a great job with the cookie display. The huge cookie table was placed at the bottom of the spiral staircase.

Note to the couple:

James and Brianna were married this past October in Pittsburgh. The couple loves to travel so it was only fitting that they were engaged at the Eiffel Tower. The couple prepared for their wedding day with their family and close friends at the Renaissance Hotel.

James added a few personal touches to his wedding day ensemble – the watch of Brianna’s late father and Game of Thrones socks. Brianna got dressed with the help of her mother and sister. All three ladies wore matching necklaces in rememberance of Brianna’s father.

As a wedding present, James had a painting made of one of their favorite engagement photos. During their first look, Brianna surprised James with a honeymoon to Jamaica! Her brother-in-law dressed up in costume and held a sign with the news.

The couple chose to do photos in downtown Pittsburgh, Point State Park and Mt. Washington before taking the trolley to the LeMont where both the ceremony and reception were held.
Guests spent the reception dancing to the Bachelor Boys and enjoying not only the elaborate cake (Eiffel Tower themed) but also the dessert table and donut station.
Brianna and James ended the evening with a sparkler send-off outside the LeMont!

Note to the couple:

Brianna and James, we loved working with you on your wedding day! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always! Congratulations!

Lilliana and Jesse first met in grade school but didn’t begin dating until college. Jesse proposed on Christmas Eve! They were married at The First United Methodist Church in Irwin with a reception following at Antonelli Event Center.

Lilliana, her mom, matron of honor (former KWP bride Nikki) and bridesmaids got ready at Lilliana’s home while Jesse got ready with the men at his brother’s home.

Lilliana did a casual first look with her dad and provided both of her parents gifts on her wedding day.

Before their first look, the couple read cards from one another. After the first look, we stopped on the way to the church for some quick bridal party and bride and groom portraits. The weather cleared up just in time for these pictures!

Once church was over, we took just a few more minutes with the couple for pictures outside in front of the popular red door of the church. Following that last set of photos, we all headed over to Antonelli’s for the reception. The couple did something unique in that they passed out the buffet plates to their guests in lieu of a receiving line. This is a great option for couples who want to greet every guest at the reception but don’t have the time to do table visits or a receiving line at church. After dinner, the dance floor was packed all night! It was great to observe all the action down below from the balcony at Antonelli’s. I even saw ring bearer Colton stripping down to his diaper and dancing. A fun night was had by all!

Trisha and Eric had a private outdoor ceremony with family followed up with a BBQ at Parish Hill in North Park. Trisha and Eric wanted a casual vibe to their special day – that included lots of DIY – the couple decorated the barn themselves, Trisha made the bouquets and bouts and Eric’s band was the entertainment for the night.

I have known Trisha for over 20 years. Growing up, her grandma was my parent’s neighbor. It certainly is an honor when someone I grew up with selects us for their wedding photography!

After Trisha got ready with the help of her sister, aunt and cousin, she drove herself to the first look with Eric! The couple took their photos throughout North Park (including pictures with their dogs) and then held the intimate ceremony outside of Parish Hill.

During the reception, guests got to play lawn games, enjoy a large cookie table all made by Trisha and family and listen to The Virtuals – Eric’s band.

Note to the couple:

Trisha and Eric, we had so much fun working with you on the day of your wedding! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always! Congratulations!

Sweet couple Morgan and Eric were married in the bride’s hometown of Butler, PA this past fall. They met while attending Grove City College and were engaged in one of the most popular Pittsburgh photo spots – the North Shore!

While the men got ready at the Hampton Inn Butler, Morgan got dressed with the help of her mom, bridesmaids and family dog Carly at her parent’s home before sharing a touching first look with her dad.

Minutes before the ceremony, Morgan and Eric held hands through the bridal room door while Eric prayed.

Downtown Butler made for a colorful location for portraits – all within walking distance of the church too! The bride and groom rode to the reception in a white Cadillac. At sunset, the couple got to sneak away on a golf cart to take a few more portraits with the best light of the day.

Morgan and Eric’s dance floor was packed all night. The couple ended their night with a sparkler send-off. I think after this sparkler send-off we are going to have to enforce a one sparkler per guest rule as one of the guests lit two giant handfuls’ worth! No one got hurt but there was a big fireball! 🙂

They were set to go on their honeymoon right after their wedding but a hurricane made their flight impossible. Having their honeymoon delayed just gave them more to look forward to and they took it in stride. Morgan and Eric finally got to Barbados in December and it looked absolutely beautiful!

Note to the couple:

Morgan and Eric, you were a joy to work with! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always! Congratulations!

Brittany and Corey got married and had their reception at The Grand Concourse in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Labor Day weekend. They were married just shy of the anniversary of their first date twelve years ago!

Although the two went to high school together, they did not start dating until their college years at Ohio State. Corey proposed when they were vacationing in Paris.

Both the ladies and men got ready at Hotel Monaco. Being a pet friendly hotel, their dog Alfie got to be there while they got ready for their special day. He was so well behaved when it was time for photos!

The couple opted to do a “first look” in front of their bridal party. After the first look, the bride and groom had photos taken at several spots throughout the downtown Pittsburgh area – Mellon Green, Mellon Square, in back of the courthouse – before finishing up at the Strip District and the Smithfield Street Bridge.

The ceremony, officiated by Joyce Chilton, was held on the steps in The Grand Concourse in front of 140 of their closest family and friends. After the ceremony, the couple got to join their guests for cocktail hour at The Gandy Dancer.

The reception had a vintage feel with the escort cards looking like train tickets – designed and made by the groom himself! As an extra treat for the guests, the couple had a popcorn bar as well as a slow motion booth.

Amanda and Leigh had a great ceremony and reception at the Edgeworth Club!

Amanda and Leigh were married on a beautiful summer day, with photos taken at the Edgeworth Club and surrounding grounds.

Amanda and Leigh met on Xbox, and they were in the same clan as their best man and maid of honor.

Amanda and her gorgeous bridesmaids got ready at the Edgeworth Club, and Leigh and his handsome groomsmen got ready at Sheraton Station Square.

After photos, it was time to head to the ceremony. They had 150 guests in attendance and 9 members of the bridal party.

The detail that the couple wanted their guests to remember most about their wedding day was how happy they are together.

The couple spent their honeymoon in Disney World! They had a fantastic stay in Disney’s Grand Floridian.

The night ended with a sparkler send off, and the couple drove away in an antique car!

Amanda moved to England after the wedding, since that is where Leigh is from.

Amanda and Leigh, it was truly a pleasure to work with you on your special day. We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of happiness always! Congratulations! 🙂

Katie and Gabe were married on a gorgeous summer day at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Pittsburgh. The reception followed at the fantastic Hotel Monaco. For photos, we stopped by the Frick Art and Historical Society, as well as various stops in downtown Pittsburgh.

Katie and Gabe met while working together, since they are both pharmacists. Katie and Gabe both describe themselves as silly, loving, and affectionate.

Katie and her gorgeous bridesmaids, as well as Gabe and his groomsmen, got ready at Hotel Monaco.

After photos, it was time to head to the ceremony. They had 130 guests in attendance and 10 members of the bridal party.

The detail that the couple wanted their guests to remember most about their wedding day was how much fun they had.

The couple spent their honeymoon in Hawaii!
