It was a gorgeous sunny day here in Pittsburgh for Nicole and Will’s wedding at St. Louise de Marillac!  Their sparkly and colorful reception was at the Hilton Garden Inn Southpointe, which sits on top of a hill.  It was the perfect backdrop for sunset photos!

Here are some of my favorites from their day…

Nicole sang Ave Maria (this version) as she and her new husband, Will, paid their respects to the Blessed Mother.  It was a gorgeous, memorable moment.  (Nicole is an extremely talented singer!  We met when she was in grad school at Carnegie Mellon, pursuing her Masters in Vocal Performance!)
