After the ceremony, we all walked across the street to the Mellon Institute, a popular wedding spot and another favorite location of mine. We had the perfect lighting for her cathedral veil shots. I feel like I really lucked out all day long with the lighting and locations to create such gorgeous, classic portraits for these two!
After portraits, the real fun could begin! We headed to the Rivers Club for their reception! One of my favorite details about their decorations was their Pittsburgh Cookie Table. Alyssa’s parents built the 3 yellow bridges that the cookies sat on to represent Pittsburgh! It was such a fun and unique touch for their dessert display! After toasts from the two maids of honor and best man, and enjoying their dinner together, the dance floor opened up! They included a sweet Anniversary dance.
Alyssa had said that she wanted her wedding to feel classic and elegant, and I think she completely nailed it! It was emotional, yet fun and relaxing – everything that makes a wedding day so gorgeous! I am so happy that I was able to be the one to capture their wedding day, and feel so lucky it all worked out!
