Elegant Mellon Walled Garden Wedding

Elegant Mellon Walled Garden Wedding

Mr. & Mrs. Sturtevant

Pittsburgh, PA

You never know what kind of weather you’re going to get in Pittsburgh on a September day, but the sun was shining bright with warmth for Anna and Tim’s magical day! Their elegant Mellon Park Walled Garden wedding was a serious dream.

The colors were out of this world and perfect for the time of year. The ladies wore the prettiest shade of burgundy which looked stunning against the lush bouquets filled with reds, golds, ivory, and greens. Anna looked absolutely flawless in her ballgown and romantic updo and the moments captured with her and her mom are some of my favorite shots ever. 

The first look between Anna and Tim could not have been sweeter! Tim was rocking a classic black tuxedo and together the two could not have looked any better! Taking portraits of them was so much fun as their love is easy to see.

I’m so glad they were able to hold their ceremony outside with the most scenic backdrop. Their details for the ceremony and reception were so beautiful to capture and the joy written on everyone’s faces was contagious! 

Anna and Tim, thank you for choosing me to document the moments of your elegant Mellon Park Walled Garden wedding. It surely was one for the books!
