A gorgeous church (St. Boniface/Holy Wisdom Parish) and a totally unique Pittsburgh wedding reception venue (Stage AE) was the setting for Ali and Billy’s beautiful fall wedding day. I was lucky enough to be the one to capture all of it!
There are SO MANY photos that I’d like to share, and will do so in future blog posts. For now, here are some of my absolute favorite photos from the day:
Ali’s mother and sisters helped her get dressed…
It was so apparent how much Ali’s father *adores* her!
The flower girls were *precious*. Their dresses were beautiful, and they had a cute polka-dot crinoline underneath…
As Ali got ready at her parents’ house, Billy was with all the guys doing his thing…
After the ceremony, we headed down to the North Shore for some photos…
I can’t begin to explain the awesomeness that is Stage AE. This was my first time photographing a wedding reception here. When I walked in, my eyes feasted upon a sea of colors, and it was so ornately decorated with beautiful, tall centerpieces and candles everywhere. For me, as a photographer, I almost started jumping up and down because I couldn’t handle the sensory overload!!! This reception, in all its dimensions and colors, was a wedding photographer’s DREAM.
Ali and Billy chose to have a live band. This was a very wise choice, as they were AMAZING.
Thank you Ali and Billy for the honor of being your wedding photographer. I wish we could rewind and do it all over again!!!
