Emily + Justin
Twelve Oaks Mansion Wedding
I love these two! Everything about their wedding was laid back and relaxed and simply perfect!
I started the day with the girls at Emily’s Uncle’s home. Emily and her bridesmaids kept me in stitches all morning. They’re all so much fun!
The girls all wore Converse All Stars and they blinged Emily’s up a bit.
She opted for a birdcage veil, which was lovely (and made for good ring photos too)!
Emily’s friend Dessa did her make-up…how absolutely stunning was she??!!
I just adored Emily’s mom. She was just as much fun as the girls, and she and Emily clearly have a special relationship.
It was a typical November day in Pittsburgh. It started out beautiful, with some sunshine, then it rained, and snowed. And the wind blew an awful lot. And then it was time for some sleet. Yep, typical Pittsburgh weather, all right!
Justin’s daughter was the flower girl. She is such a cutie pie. I just love flower wreathes for little girls!
The church they got married in was located in North Park. It was tiny but super cute!
The cold wind really kicked in just in time for the end of the ceremony and portraits! Guests blew bubbles as the couple exited the church.
How adorable is their church from the front? It was a great spot for everyone to just huddle together in the chilly weather.
November is always tricky as to whether there will be colorful leaves left or not. We lucked out and had this gorgeous spot right across the street from the church!
And then these two amazing people got a rainbow! How perfect!!
We finished up with a few photos of the two of them at the gazebo at Twelve Oaks Mansion. It was super windy up on top of the hill, but that just made them snuggle up even more.
Emily used a super cute Instagram photo prop. Passing it around the dance floor was a fun way to end the night!
Thank you, Emily & Justin for choosing me to photography your wedding! Wishing you lots of love in your life together!
