KWP couple Jenny and Fred gifted their wedding officiant/pastor with a family session. We got to do the session in the fall. It was great to meet this family!

Lexie and Josh planned an earthy, natural celebration! Their colors were moss green, lavender, and gold with baby’s breath. Josh and Lexie met in high school and got engaged on the beach at sunset – the same beach Josh visited every summer. They have been together for eight years!

Lexie and Josh got married on a hot, hot day – the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. The two got ready separately at the Residence Inn North Shore – then we braved the sun for a first look and portraits at the river. These two shared private vows.

Lexie wanted to incorporate a lot of backgrounds in her photos – the Point, the Andy Warhol Bridge, Mount Washington. And of course, the Aviary Garden is always so pretty and fit her aesthetic. The ceremony was held in the garden and during cocktail hour, Patrik (female!) the penguin came out to greet guests.

These two celebrated with a nice long honeymoon to Italy – which looked incredible on Instagram – I was following along!

Lexie, I just loved your off the shoulder dress and the way you two interacted – it was such a fun wedding! You two are a great couple!

Lexie and Josh, 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!

These two are incredible athletes and people!

Jessica is so organized.

These two selected a Friday wedding because they didn’t want to wait another year to get married. The Royal Suite at the Omni was absolutely beautiful for the prep. We had three bridesmaids who were pregnant and these ladies were troopers – luckily, it was warm but not too hot!

After getting ready, these two did their first look at the Mellon Green, which is my favorite downtown parklet. Then we headed over to the always classic CMU Columns before heading to St. Mary of the Mount for the ceremony. And if you get married on Mt. Washington – you HAVE to go get those Mt. Washington overlook photos. The clouds came out and softened the sun just as these two hit their final pose on the overlook.

Then we headed to the Omni where the reception was to be held in the Urban Room. The Urban Room is incredible – art deco. The atmosphere is so elegant, sophisticated, and timeless. These two brought an easygoing, positive vibe to their day and the band kept the dance floor rocking the whole night – I just loved the high end, evening gala feel their wedding had!

These two enjoyed several weeks in Greece as their honeymoon!

Note to the couple:

It was so wonderful to see Michelle and Reese again and I loved taking their family’s fall pictures at Hartwood Acres. It was windy and rainy but my favorite moment of the session was when a rainbow came out! Their little one is so adorable!

Jackie and her husband were going to meet up with us for a newborn session but baby Amelia had other plans and was born right before the session would have taken place. We switched gears and did a short lifestyle newborn session instead!

Last fall, we met up with Jackie and Matt (and Hue! Their Great Dane) at Hartwood Acres. You know Hue was making another appearance at the wedding in August!

These two met on Bumble – they are both Pitt alum. They got engaged in Muir Woods outside San Francisco on their winery tour!

We started the day with the ladies at Matt’s parents’ home in Wexford. The ladies (and bridesman) got ready together and then we headed to church to capture the guys. Jackie and Matt shared a first look in front of the church and read letters from each other.

Following the ceremony at St. Alexis, the couple did a bubble exit. The rain was starting to threaten, so we wrapped up family photos and headed down to Oakland.

In Oakland, we worked in the area between Heinz Chapel and the Cathedral to get as many photos as possible in the rainstorm. Luckily, the rain was light! (Later in the night, we did have wild lightning!) After the photos in Oakland, Jackie touched up her hair – I am officially adding a blow dryer to my emergency kit on the wedding day!

Hue came in for the introductions at Soldiers and Sailors (he did say goodbye before dinner!) The couple took dance lessons and included lifts, dips, and spins! Jackie wanted a “Last Supper” photo which I feel took a moment to create – so thank you to the patient wedding party and my assistant for getting this image!

Afterwards, the dance floor was packed until the sparkler send off (the rain held off!) After the sparklers, the couple re-entered the ballroom and did a final last dance together in the empty room before heading to the after party!

Note to the couple:

­Jackie and Matt, 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!

Jackie and Jeff have been together for many years, but never made it official!. Their niece Megan contacted me right before their backyard wedding and I traveled out to their beloved family vacation home in Shanksville with just a few days’ notice.

This wedding was heartfelt and casual. I loved hearing how the cottage had been their grandparents and how any kind of dress up event at the property was out of the ordinary – one of the cousins told me most of the ladies don’t even bring makeup when they visit and stay every summer, let alone wedding attire.

We did a variety of different family photos to emphasize everyone being gathered all together and then right after the emotional ceremony, everyone got more casual, changing into shorts and swimsuits for rides in the boat – Jeff even captained one of the cruises around the lake.

If you follow our blog, you know we usually list out all the vendors that made the day happen – but in this case, there were no vendors. Family and friends were making the food in the small kitchen and serving on the deck with the adorable family dogs underfoot and aunts were outside at the ceremony site moving the potted plants around, debating where just the right spot was for the ceremony with the background to be the lake view. There was a flash mob rehearsed and cornhole boards being made with handprints and a wholesome printed sign on one of the first floor shared bathrooms indicating that room was reserved for Jackie as a bridal suite. The whole vibe was summer camp and family reunion on Cape Cod and I am thankful to get a glimpse into people’s lives and share their first official day of marriage. Congratulations to the newlyweds and thanks to the whole family for selecting me as part of your very special intimate gathering.

We love Succop for weddings – and we love a mid-week microwedding even more! Sarah’s dad contacted me just a few weeks out from their wedding to make arrangements.

Sarah and Dalton are such a sweet couple – they had a small ceremony at Succop Nature Park and Sarah’s dad and brother served as musicians. The couple married beneath the Willow Tree which is one of my favorite ceremony locations at Succop.

One of my favorite parts of the day was the butterfly release – the butterflies stayed on Sarah’s shoulder and gown.

The weather was beautiful and warm and sunny – Succop always photographs so beautifully.

After portraits at Succop, the group headed just a few minutes away to Servanti’s on the Runway which is at the Butler Airport for a reception dinner complete with a cake (with butterflies on it of course) and a Pittsburgh cookie table.

Note to the couple:
Sarah and Dalton, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
