Courtney and Jake had such a beautiful and unique wedding day! The weather was perfect, and especially excellent for July in Pittsburgh. These two really lucked out with a gorgeous sunny day that wasn’t too hot!

The Pittsburgh Botanic Garden was the perfect setting for the couple to say their “I do’s,” and the portrait locations are nothing short of amazing.

It’s not often that the groom helps the bride button her gown – how sweet to share those moments with your very best friend.

I was so thrilled to have so much time to capture couple’s portraits of these two – we were able to check out some amazing locations within the gardens, and I love these portraits so much!

The sheer joy in these images – I can’t handle it! 

The bride and groom made their own chuppah, which was such a beautiful and personal touch. The potted plants at the base will be planted at the couple’s home, which I think is such a thoughtful and creative idea!

This is easily my favorite night shot of the year so far – I love this adorable little gazebo!

Congratulations, newlyweds! You had such a beautiful day!
