The Le Mont Pittsburgh Wedding – Lauren & Justin

I am so excited to share Justin & Lauren’s wedding with you. Justin & I went to Ambridge high school together. (Go Bridgers!) He and Lauren are also photographers so I was very humbled to have them ask us to photograph their wedding.

These two met through Lauren’s maid of honor at a Penn State hockey game. Following which Lauren left to study abroad. Justin didn’t let that deter him. He waited until she got back to take her on an official date.

The boys got ready for the wedding at the Sheraton Station Square. It is one of my favorite spots for prep photos. The backdrop of the city is great!

All the pretty details.

From the Couple: ” One of the biggest inspirations for us was adventure. Adventure and our love for stories. Jt & his movies.. Lauren & her books. We wanted to include the things we loved within our wedding. Simply because we loved them. We both come from heartaches. We both found our way to each other despite these hardships. We have our story. We have our adventure.”

So for the traditional father daughter dance she shared it with 5 special men in her life who took on a fatherly role after she lost her dad. They danced to Tale as old as Time from Beauty & the Beast. Le Mont Pittsburgh Wedding

It definitely brought the feels!
