1920’s Inspired Wedding at the Grand Concourse

Mr. & Mrs. Maenner

Pittsburgh, PA

Where to even begin, this classically styled 1920's inspired wedding at the Grand Concourse was amazing on so many levels. Jeni and Paul are the sweetest most genuine couple and their love is so inspiring and truly infectious. When I first spoke to Jeni over the phone about her upcoming wedding, I just knew this day was going to be so wonderful and filled with love, but I had no idea that their special day would be seen and celebrated throughout the world. Jeni's story to the altar and how Arthur Thomas, the man who received Jeni's father's donated heart, walked her down the aisle, was covered by the news - including The New York Times, The Washington Post, BBC, ABC and many more. The attention that this wedding received was truly amazing, but the most important part of that entire day was that for Jeni and Paul it was the happiest day of their lives! You can read more about how Jeni and Paul met and their love story, over on Burgh Brides! Jeni and Paul, I cannot thank you enough for choosing me to capture such an incredible part of your journey together! It has been a whirlwind, and I am so honored to have worked with you both!

I am currently booking weddings for the 2018 season, so contact me today to find out more information about my packages and services! I look forward to hearing from you!
