Emily & Brad | Orchard Hill Church Wedding | Monterey Bay Reception | Intimate Pittsburgh Wedding

Emily and Brad were married in an intimate Orchard Hill Church ceremony, followed by a lovely dinner at Monterey Bay. This was such a lovely wedding, and I’m so excited to share these images!

The jewelry worn by the bride was her “something borrowed.” The bracelet was given to Emily’s mom by her grandmother, and the earrings were a gift from Emily’s dad to her mom.

I just adore these images of Sloane, Emily’s niece and flower girl, trying on the bride’s shoes.pittsburgh-wedding-photographer-orchard-hill-church-monterey-bay-reception-intimate-pittsburgh-wedding-venue3pittsburgh-wedding-photographer-orchard-hill-church-monterey-bay-reception-intimate-pittsburgh-wedding-venue4pittsburgh-wedding-photographer-orchard-hill-church-monterey-bay-reception-intimate-pittsburgh-wedding-venue5

Meanwhile, Brad got ready at his parents’ home, just a few minutes from the church.pittsburgh-wedding-photographer-orchard-hill-church-monterey-bay-reception-intimate-pittsburgh-wedding-venue6pittsburgh-wedding-photographer-orchard-hill-church-monterey-bay-reception-intimate-pittsburgh-wedding-venue7pittsburgh-wedding-photographer-orchard-hill-church-monterey-bay-reception-intimate-pittsburgh-wedding-venue8

Brad’s custom tux was complete with an embroidery of his name and the couple’s wedding date, such an awesome touch!

I don’t normally share so many ceremony images in a blog post, but these two were *so* crazy happy the whole time, the love was palpable. Emily and Brad, you are so clearly meant to be together. <3

The reception was elegant and just as intimate as the ceremony; the restaurant was the perfect setting.pittsburgh-wedding-photographer-orchard-hill-church-monterey-bay-reception-intimate-pittsburgh-wedding-venue25

It was really important to the couple that we capture some images of them dancing with the city in the background. So awesome!pittsburgh-wedding-photographer-orchard-hill-church-monterey-bay-reception-intimate-pittsburgh-wedding-venue26pittsburgh-wedding-photographer-orchard-hill-church-monterey-bay-reception-intimate-pittsburgh-wedding-venue27pittsburgh-wedding-photographer-orchard-hill-church-monterey-bay-reception-intimate-pittsburgh-wedding-venue28
