Colorful Wedding at Spirit | Lawrenceville Pittsburgh

Ashley + David

Pittsburgh is an awesome city.
I have traveled quite a bit around the world, and I can assure you that Pittsburgh is indeed the best kept secret in America.
I am starting this post saying that because the pictures from Ashley and David’s wedding portray the amazingness of this city I call home.

The contrast of the old urban landscape against the yellow bridges, the beauty of kind people, the local art displays, the food, the colors, the textures… I mean, everything it’s pretty amazing here.

Today, I am finally sharing the pictures of one of the coolest and sexiest weddings I have photographed (I think the Strip District is the sexiest neighborhood evah!).

Ashley and David got hitched at Spirit this past fall, on a day with the most Yinzer weather ever.
It was cold, rainy, windy, warm, and then again cold; and also all that at the same time.

Their reception took place at Spirit in Lawrenceville, during the art installation of Ian Brill which covered the walls of Spirit’s second floor.

A killer party with one heck of a DJ. The most delicious food served in compostable banana leaf papers. The Flowers were on point, and the quotes from The Office and Gilmore Girls were just the icing of a beautiful day.

Overall, the most supportive atmosphere embodied the day with love, and I was happy to witness a relationship of ten years getting a beautiful upgrade.



A wedding with purpose

At the end of the wedding, and thanks to the generosity of the couple, and the collaboration of Blue Sparrow catering, the leftovers were boxed and distributed in among 23 homeless people in downtown and the northside AND 4 doggies.
Nothing better than comfort food during a cold, windy, and rainy day like we had that day. And nothing better than to start your life as a married couple keeping generosity and compassion in the center of your hearts.
High five to Ashley and David!
