Not everyone will agree to do their photos behind a car wash. But these two did!
Leading up to Andrea and Brian’s wedding day, I was searching for a covered area near their venues as heavy rain was predicted. I found a cute fence behind a car wash and Hahn’s Greenhouse was so kind to let me use their covered area to take some photos adding some fall color!
The day started with one of the most PERFECT hotel rooms I have ever had for my style of shooting – the presidential suite at the Homewood Inn and Suites in Canonsburg. This room was huge and featured two bathrooms – perfect for all the ladies getting ready!
Following the getting ready, we headed over to the first look with just the bride and groom and did some photos dodging the rain drops before church!
The ceremony was held near the bride and groom’s home in West View – Brian’s cousin Jackie is a professional singer and she sang a beautiful Ava Maria during the mass.
After church, we headed to Bella Sera – we got creative there and used the portico for the bridal party photos. When you have a small amount of space, it helps to use levels to keep everyone under the cover and we used some little chairs we keep on hand to make one of my favorite rainy day bridal party photos.
The rain continued all night, but Andrea and Brian ducked out before sunset and let us get some great photos on the grounds. And of course, the night was not complete without a sparkler send off!
Note to the couple:
Andrea and Brian, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! It was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
