Kristina + Michael | Saint Boniface Church – University Club | Pittsburgh Wedding

Kristina and Mike had their engagement Session last May.. and fast forward, their Wedding is here!
I was invited to their rehearsal dinner *it reminds me of my big family – half the world away*.
that night, I got home pretty full, ready and pumped up for their big day the following morning.

It was a bit chilly on the 26th, but I love the cloudy day as it’ll be easier on the eyes.
I was a little afraid that things will be out of hands, considering the big numbers of 8 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen.
but I have to say that the whole bridal party was very supportive of Kristina and Mike.
kudos to each one of the bridesmaid who are willing to embrace the cold wind and the groomsmen to behave *they usually don’t*.:)
With their support, we were able to take some pictures outside. yes!

The evening was spent at the University Club, starting with the first dance, cutting of the cake, toast from 3 of Kristina’s brothers followed by a fancy dinner.
we close the night with the garter and bouquet toss, and plenty of dancing…

Kristina and Mike are postponing their honeymoon until December, I’m sure they are looking forward to it!
well, congratulations once more to Mr. & Mrs. Bashline!

Lena + Mike | Heinz Chapel – Athletic Association | Pittsburgh Wedding

Lena and Mike got hitched on October 12, 2013.
I’ve never met them in person until their wedding day since they live in DC, but thanks to Skype – we met online.
hmm.. so for the last 3 weddings, all my clients are either from NY or DC. what a coincidence.

The weather was just simply perfect. Not too sunny but not too hot. On top of that, Lena and Mike gave me plenty of time for pictures in between the ceremony and reception. *for those of you thinking of hiring me, trust me that it’s always worth it to give me more time on your wedding day!*

They went to Turkey & Greece for their honeymoon.. and just earlier this morning, she emailed me saying that they are back!
so here are the pictures!

Zhen + Jay | Heinz Chapel – Phipps Conservatory | Pittsburgh Wedding

Zhen and Jay is celebrating their big Wedding day on August 17, 2013.
When we met for consultation, I was thinking that they will give me ample time for pictures.. which is GREAT!
well, Not only they gave me time, they are as energetic as I am, so their wedding day was a total blast!..
We went everywhere we could for photo ops.. and the weather was just so lovely.

After going for my family vacation, upgrading my Lightroom to the latest greatest *with some crazy hiccups here and there*,
Finally their wedding pictures and slideshows are here. *sorry for the delay*

Zhen and Jay went to Europe for a cruise, visiting Florence, Marseille, and Barcelona on their Honeymoon.
They are back and I can’t wait to see the pictures from their trip.

Congratulations again to Zhen & Jay… I will see you both sometime when I visit Virginia / Washington, DC.:)
