It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood for Hillary and Justin’s wedding!   Their wedding was absolutely lovely, and they and their guests partied hard at their Children’s Museum wedding reception.

We started out the day at the Wyndham Grand downtown, where both Hillary and Justin got ready.

Calvary United Methodist is one of the prettiest churches in Pittsburgh.  I love the enormous Tiffany window in the choir loft…

….And I can’t forget to mention my friend and colleague, Brian Burns, who is the organist at Calvary.  I have collaborated with him on a few projects, and he is a wonderful person and musician.

    Wow, Alisa! These are all fantastic! The getting ready shots are terrific, but I really love what you did with the portraits at the museum, especially the one in The Garage. Excellent use of that space!ReplyCancel

      Thank you, Christina! There are a LOT more from that garage area, I just wasn’t able to share every single one 🙂 I’ll be back there in two weeks, and I can’t wait to try something different!ReplyCancel
