This is an *all* Oakland wedding – it’s such a fun and easy thing for the bride and groom to have their prep at the Wyndham University Center, the ceremony at Heinz Chapel, photos at the Cathedral of Learning, and then the reception at Soldiers and Sailors – the bridal party was able to walk between all the locations!
Morgan went to Pitt (along with several bridal party members and siblings) and John went to Allegheny. These two got engaged on a sunset cruise in Lake Tahoe.
There’s a lot to LOVE about this wedding day – and some of my favorite features included the balcony above the reception space at Soldiers and Sailors, the delicious and numerous food stations at the reception, the Hawaiian shirts and jorts for the ladies prep instead of robes (what a fun take on getting ready outfits!), White Claw instead of champagne during the prep (this is THE summer 2019 drink right? “Ain’t no laws when you drinking claws” is the slogan I have been told), the American flag socks for the groomsmen as it was Labor Day weekend, and the dance floor craziness during John’s favorite reception song “Shout!” (It got WILD!)
I hope Italy was AMAZING, you two!
Note to the couple:
Morgan and John, 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!
