The ceremony was held at St. Sylvester's Church in Brentwood, and as Crystal described it, it has one of the longest center aisles in Pittsburgh. She chose this church because of the beautiful architecture--both inside and outside (I loved the steps out front!).
After some fun "formal" church pictures, we headed to South Park for some very lovely photos. Crystal and Martin had timed their wedding perfectly, so when we arrived at the park, we had the lovely sunset light that just makes everything look romantic.
Then we were off to the Georgetown Centre to get the party started! This was a lovely venue, with a nice skylight over the dance floor, and Crystal's color theme of black, white and pink coordinated well with the decor. Enough of me writing--let's see some photos!
Crystal's excitement was contagious.
This little ring bearer was quite the ham.
I love first looks.
These steps were great for group shots.
When doing formal shots, I often tell the group to "talk amongst yourselves" to get a more relaxed look. Of course, I don't often get this:
I think Crystal is a natural model. I don't try to dictate expressions, so this is all her. It's definitely one of my favorites!
I love the reactions to toasts:
I don't think Martin was expecting this.
The first time she threw the bouquet, it got caught in the wreath.
Did I mention Crystal has some amazing blond hair?
Crystal and Martin, thanks so much for letting me be a part of your big day!
