Emily and Don’s wedding yesterday was just the kind I love – personal and different. Emily and Don created a celebration that truly reflected who they are – and they are unique!

I have some absolutely stunning photos to share of their whole day – including one series that will definitely be a good answer when people ask “what’s the strangest thing that’s ever happened to you at a wedding?”  – but I wanted to share just a few for Emily and Don before they head off for their honeymoon.

Huge thanks to my superb second shooter Pamela Marie for her talent yesterday.

Emily and Don devoted time before the ceremony for pictures of them and their bridal party. We had a quick stroll down their street, which has some perfectly picturesque spots. I want to live here!

Emily and Don’s ceremony was at 6pm in the newly renovated walled garden at Mellon Park in Shadyside, followed by a reception at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Emily and Don – I’m so happy I was able to be there to be a part of your wedding. Thank you! Have a wonderful trip!
