If I were to describe this wedding, it would be GO BIG OR GO HOME! Everything was incredible and over the top and I don’t think Gina would have had it any other way!
I got to hang out with the entire crew the night before during Gina + Brian’s rehearsal dinner at Eddie V’s These guys know how to throw a party- live music, gorgeous decor, amazing food and she walked in wearing the most gorgeous sequins outfit that stopped me right in my tracks! …….. but THEN the very next day, I got to see her wearing white and my o’my was Brian in for some eye candy! haha!
They got ready at the Omni William Penn hotel in downtown Pittsburgh with gorgeous views of the city. She wore a beautiful beaded Haley Paige gown, a veil for days and sparkles everywhere!
I give you part 1 of Brian + Gina’s big day!

She was late on their very first date so she said he should have known! haha!
Those lashes though!
Hot damn! Fun fact: her cake matched her dress-just wait until you see the reception photos!
She was holding back tears and so was I when she told me that the front of the card had something on it that she have to HIM on their very first date!
A few portraits after the first look in the Omni Mezzanine.
Gina surprised him with their dog daughter!! We walked outside and there she was waiting for him. I don’t know about you, but she looks like she’s smiling!!

Her veil got stuck in the revolving door! haha! No veils were harmed!
I really enjoyed shooting these in the Omni Speakeasy! It was moody and gave me a chance to use some off camera flash!
