Megan + Christopher | Pittsburgh Renaissance Hotel Wedding
Megan and Christopher’s Pittsburgh Renaissance Hotel wedding was only one month after my daughter was born. Because I had a c-section, it wasn’t possible for me to shoot their wedding day. I was so disappointed to not be there myself, and worried how they might react to this news. But Megan and Christopher were such a sweet and understanding couple. They were so happy for our family, especially knowing our years of battling infertility.
Luckily I was able to meet them in January when we photographed their engagement session. I absolutely loved hanging out with them. They were so much fun together, and just such a genuine couple.
The Wedding Day
On the day of their wedding, Chelsey and Jamie took such good care of Megan and Christopher as their photographers! I checked in every hour all day to make sure they had everything running smooth. A few of my favorite parts about their wedding included the gorgeous purple robe that Megan wore during the getting ready portion of the day. I couldn’t get over the “old Hollywood” vibe that it gave off!
Chelsey and Jamie assured me that Megan’s first look with her dad was so sweet and special that there were no dry eyes around. Not only did Megan make all of her own floral arrangements (SO amazing!) but her and Christopher performed a choreographed first dance. It was so romantic and so well done. There was such an ease about them. The way Christopher dipped and picked her up and spun Megan around was absolutely flawless. They completely owned the floor!
Megan and Christopher are both twins; Megan’s twin sister was her maid of honor and Christopher’s twin brother was his best man. This meant that they had the BEST support team with them all day. The entire bridal party was so wonderful to be around and to watch them support Megan and Christopher. During the reception, Megan’s sister gave a heartwarming speech in which she talked about how it had always been just the two of them, and now she was officially welcoming Christopher into their family.
The whole day was such a sweet moment in their story. If I couldn’t be there myself, I’m so glad I could trust Chelsey and Jamie to capture their day perfectly! …Make sure you scroll all the way down to see their end-of-the-night portraits. They’re stunning!
