In June, Brittany graduated from medical school. And ALSO in June – Brittany and Aaron got married! So yes, this was a BIG summer for them!
Have I ever mentioned how I just love the Homewood Suites Presidential style room at the Southpointe location? If you have a few bridesmaids – this room is amazing! There’s a full kitchen, a living room, dining room, bedroom and TWO bathrooms! Plenty of room for photos, hair, and makeup! Honestly, this hotel room is bigger than all the apartments I’ve had and it’s close to the size of a floor of my house! This room was ideal for Brittany and the ladies!
This couple met at Westminster College where Aaron was on the football team (that impressed Brittany’s dad – who is a longtime high school football coach) – Brittany was a cheerleader all through school and college – she was even captain! I loved hearing about the early days of their dating in college from Brittany’s dad during his heartfelt toast!
For this wedding, we had a ZERO percent chance of rain. This is Pittsburgh, you guys. This is so incredibly rare – I think it’s happened one other time in my career! Usually the forecast is at least 10% or so, but nope! The sun was out and shining on these two!
This reception was a straight PARTY. In the limo on the way to the reception – a party. Before the ceremony? A little bit of a party! Some of my favorite details from the wedding included a huge cookie table (that they just kept refilling!), gourmet cupcakes in all the flavors, a sparkler send off, the cake being suspended from the ceiling, the mix of linen covered tables with a Joanna Gaines looking farmhouse uncovered tables, and the mix and match cornflower dresses!
We usually scout locations before weddings and my assistant Allison found this little gem near the church and on the way to the reception – a section of Boyce Mayview Park where the light was just wonderful for photos between the ceremony and reception.
Note to the couple:
Brittany and Aaron, we loved working with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
