Bridget and Rory were married on Valentine´s weekend this year on a blustery cold but sunshine-y day. These two met on a dating app – Bridget gave Rory a card that said ¨So glad I swiped right¨ as part of his wedding present. It was a great wedding present because it also featured cufflinks, socks (Mr. Rogers socks!), a bow tie and a chocolate cake flown in from Chicago. These two got engaged following a YoYoMa concert in Chicago.
Bridget´s veil came from her grandmother´s wedding in 1939 and even featured a headpiece that was vintage that you simply just don´t see anymore! Bridget´s sister had worn this veil previously as well.
Bridget brought in a lot of vintage touches for the wedding day. A great option for the ladies was using Rent the Runway for bridesmaid dresses – they rented them once in December for trying on and then were able to rent the exact size they needed in February for the wedding.
For dessert, rather than cake – these two served up mini pies, the Pittsburgh cookie table, and some delicious popsicles they brought with them all the way from Chicago where they make their home now!
Note to the couple:
Bridget and Rory, 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!
