I have two words to describe this wedding: BIG and FUN!

Bridget and Nick were married on October 8th at Prince of Peace Parish on the Southside, and they hosted their reception at the Fairmont Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh.

When Bridget and Nick first contacted me they were already very clear on what they wanted for their wedding day. They didn’t want stuffy or formal photos, they wanted to celebrate and have a great time with their family and friends. Mission accomplished.

Bridget and Nick, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your celebration! Enjoy France and Spain!

Bridget and Nick planned a break between their ceremony and reception which gave us lots time for photos. Our first stop was a special request of Nick’s, he wanted to stop at Jack’s on the Southside for a toast. pittsburgh_fairmot_hotel_wedding-145 pittsburgh_fairmot_hotel_wedding-44pittsburgh_fairmot_hotel_wedding-43pittsburgh_fairmot_hotel_wedding-45pittsburgh_fairmot_hotel_wedding-46

Brigdet and Nick slipped away from their cocktail hour for a few photos on the steps at the Fairmont. These are some of my favorite photos of the whole day!
