Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh Wedding

There was a whole lot of this sort of thing going on all day long at Anne and Andy’s Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh wedding. Seriously. Anne and Andy don’t just giggle, it’s a deep down, teary-eyed, throw-your-head-back belly laugh🤣

That sense of joy set the tone for the entire day!

A young bride and groom hold on to one another in a wooded setting and laugh.

Getting Ready

Anne’s mom Lisa shares the joy when the flowers from Green Sinner arrived.

A woman holds a bouquet of flowers as an older woman leans over to her and smiles. Another woman in a black tank top stands at the rear of the frame.

Andy’s gift to Anne was a Pittsburgh Steelers’ T.J. Watt jersey. Nice!

The ladies share a toast with mimosas.

A brush paints red lipstick on to a woman's mouth. All you see is the brush, the woman's nose and her lips.

Sprigs of rosemary for the guys and dahlias and roses for the ladies. I bet you’re impressed by my knowledge of flora 😁

Two photos: one is a bunch of labeled boutonnieres made of sprigs of rosemary. The other is a bouquet with orange and white flowers.

Details. Andy’s bespoke Joseph Abboud suit with matching vest was definitely on point.

Three detail photos showing a blue pair of open toed heels, a wedding dress, and a man's torso in a grey suit and vest.

The guys, including best man Kevin, were a big help making sure that Andy looked his best 😉

The Union Project

Over at the Union Project Andy watched as Anne walked towards him…

A groom watches for his bride to walk down the aisle as his groomsmen line up behind him. There is a mustard colored wall behind them.

…on her dad Russ’ arm.

A bride walks down the aisle with her father as guests stand on either side of them. The walls in the room are mustard colored.

The Great Hall at the Union Project is a lovely space.

Andy’s buddy Ian served as officiant. Of course, there were jokes.

Portrait Time

The yard outside was perfect for portraits of the couple.

Bride and bridesmaids make surprised reactions as they are overtaken by cold water vapor.

While I was taking the portrait at the lead of this post I looked over and saw the bridal party playing in the water vapor in the Cloud Arbor. Kids!

Groomsmen and bridesmaids run through an array of tall metal poles emitting water vapor.

A Musical Family

Anne and Andy’s Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh wedding reception started with an amazing performance by Anne’s talented sister Megan, her dad Russ, and Megan’s husband Harrison on fiddle.

Three wedding guests perform music on guitar and fiddle while a bride and groom celebrate the song.

Dinner and Details

Dinner was in The Studio. I love those ribbons – the view looking straight up is kind of trippy:

Two views of a room with a long table set for a wedding banquet. Pink ribbons hang from the high ceiling.

What would a wedding in Pittsburgh be without a cookie table?

A cookie table and an escort table with a chalkboard showing seating assignments.

Following the performance by Anne’s family, she and Andy greeted their guests at dinner.

The Dancing Really Gets Going

First dance. I love the reactions of their guests!

A couple embraces at the end of their first dance while their guests applaud. There is a giant colored glass bird in the background.

Parent’s dances followed immediately afterwards.

Andy’s dad Eugene killed it on the dance floor.

A groom in shirtsleeves and a vest dances with his father who holds his hands in the air.A lineup of four men holding beer bottles kick their legs in the air in unison.

Musical talent runs in the family. Anne sat in with the band, Maxwell Strait, for a version of Tammy Wynette’s Stand By Your Man.

A bride laughs and claps her hands as she sings a song into a microphone.
