Rachel and Karl | Pittsburgh Wedding

For Rachel and Karl, one of the most important aspects of their wedding was their guests. Rachel explained to me before the wedding that she wanted a lot of pictures of people enjoying the reception, not shots of shoes or dresses. I believe that emphasis is just a reflection of Rachel and Karl's genuine kindness and their caring personalities. Their wedding was truly a pleasure to photograph and a beautiful success in all regards.

Rachel and Karl exchanged vows at St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church in Greentree. After stopping at the West End Overlook for some photos, they joined their guests for an intimate reception at the very lovely Morning Glory Inn in Pittsburgh's South Side. I can't say enough about this charming venue--great atmosphere, unique location, wonderful people. If you're planning a smaller reception, you should definitely check it out.

These two flower girls/attendants were a lot of fun!

What a gorgeous dress.

This shot was taken by Jay--I love the joy it captures.

Well, for not being too focused on details, I have to say this bouquet is pretty lovely!

Quite handsome.


Love those red shoes...

One of the things Rachel really wanted was a group shot of all their guests. What a fun idea!

Congratulations Rachel and Karl!
