Heinz History Center Wedding
Heinz History Center Wedding: Lisa and Armando chose a beautiful early fall afternoon for their wedding at the Heinz History Center. There was much excitement surrounding the opening of the Vatican Treasures exhibit at the museum, but it didn’t affect the festivities – kudos to the History Center staff and for Shannon Spickard from Simply Stunning Wedding and Event Planning for making sure things ran smoothly.
Lisa’s maid of honor Jennifer makes sure her hair is perfect.
Meanwhile, Armando was getting ready downstairs.
Who knew getting dressed could be so much fun?

The path along the Allegheny River is a great place for photos, and for bicycling.

There are so many cool spots for portraits at the History Center, I loved it!
