I must say…..I love Hannah and Brad.  They are a beautiful couple who had a gorgeous wedding at the Duquesne Club in downtown Pittsburgh.  I was on a high for DAYS after this wedding.  I am so honored to have shared in the celebration with their closest family and friends.  We couldn’t have had better weather for the occasion.  It was very difficult to choose, but here are some of my favorite images from their day…

Hannah and Brad’s family and friends walked into a GORGEOUS reception room at the Duquesne Club.  The tables were adorned with candles and centerpieces made up of white hydrangeas, raspberry and pink colored roses. The tables were dressed with crisp white linens, and were surrounded by the always timeless and classic silver Chiavari chairs.
