Last Saturday, July 25, I had the honor of second shooting (and navigating) for the talented Pamela Marie as she photographed Kelly & Phil’s wedding. Pamela is so talented and has such a keen eye – and is lots of fun, too!
I also want to to give a shout-out to Sumer Schmitt of Simply Perfect Weddings. Sumer worked very closely with Kelly to help her plan this spectacular celebration.
The day began at the Sheraton at Station Square, where Kelly & Phil were getting ready.
The bouquets were so rich full of intense color.
Kelly was so relaxed, calm, and happy! I saw her smiling like this all day.
I feel so lucky to be able to capture the quiet, private moment when a bride and groom see each other before the ceremony!
Phil & Kelly’s ceremony took place at St. Mary of the Mount, a beautiful church right on Grandview Avenue on Mount Washington.
Kelly & Phil’s reception was held at the Pennsylvanian, an absolutely stunning venue. The cocktail hour took place in the large rotunda area.
The inside space is just as amazing. Originally a train station, it still featured wooden railroad benches around the perimeter, 40-foot high ceilings, and marble floors.
Kelly & Phil were great dancers!
If you’re interested in holding your wedding at The Pennsylvanian, please see my spotlight on the Pennsylvanian. This is a fantastic Pittsburgh wedding venue!
Congratulations to you, Kelly & Phil! It was an honor to be there to help document your day.
