april & jason | riverview park ceremony & hofbrauhaus reception | intimate pittsburgh wedding

On a sunny and warm Saturday in October, we started bride prep coverage at Hyatt House in Pittsburgh’s South Side for April & Jason’s big day!

The ceremony was held at Riverview Park, which also made a beautiful location for bride & groom portraits.

Two very important family members were present for the ceremony: the couple’s dogs! 

A dear friend was the ceremony musician – such a special touch!

April was escorted down the aisle by her father, and family and friends gathered around to witness their intimate ceremony.This is one of my favorite photos of the day – these two had their guests travel in style to and from the wedding locations in a cool, old-fashioned bus!

Of course, some family portraits with the pups were totally necessary!

This couple had one of the most unique reception venues of the year! I absolutely loved working at Hofbräuhaus, and the guests had such an awesome time!Also – how cool is this cake? The cupcakes were to die for, and this display was almost too pretty to eat – almost 😉

With tons of dancing and even a stein-holding contest, there was so much fun to be had at April & Jason’s reception! What an amazing night!I’m so glad these two ducked away from all the fun for a few night portraits – this is one of my favorites of 2017!

Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs! We had such a great time at your wedding, and wish you many years of happiness in your marriage!
