Lindsay and Justin’s Wedding at Schenley Plaza

Last Saturday was September 10, 2011 — more affectionately known in the wedding world in which I live as 9.10.11. This was an extremely popular wedding date and one that I could have booked over and over again if I could clone myself. But there is only one me and I can only shoot one wedding on this date. Lucky for me, I was working with Lindsay and Justin.

Their wedding day began at the beautiful new SpingHill Suites Bakery Square. I didn’t realized how much I liked this hotel until I checked out how many photos I included from this trendy new location. Nicki was working with the guys while Lindsay was dressing in her stunnting Justin Alexander gown. She looks freaking amazing!

Lindsay and Justin wanted to calm their nerves and have a great day so they opted for a “First Look” ceremony as soon as they were ready. Perfect for them since Lindsay was tearing up every few minutes while she was getting ready.

We traveled to the ceremony location, Schenley Plaza, where the forecast for rain came true with a solid 1-hour downpour.

Thankfully the rain stopped just before their ceremony. Lindsay and Justin’s wedding planner, Ansley from Bliss Events, had the event all set up before the rain began. Her team did a great job all day.

One of my favorite photos from the day by Nicki.

The ceremony was performed by Lindsay’s cousin (in-law), Ian Miller. He gave a WONDERFUL ceremony with support of music by the very talented Terrance Vaughn.

Their wedding reception was held at the PPG Aquarium at the Pittsburgh Zoo. We took a few photos around the zoo before heading into the party for the night.

I think that cake forks are so funny.

Congratulations, Lindsay and Justin!

    9-10-11 was not an easy day to shoot with that irritating downpour in the middle of the day – but you’d never know it from this superb set of images. My favorite is Lindsay and Justin leaving the ceremony. Except that my FAVORITE favorite is the last one from the first look, where Lindsay is clinging to her groom so dearly.
