Phipps Conservatory Wedding

Phipps Conservatory Wedding Photography: Kylie and Rachid were married at Sacred Heart Church in Shadyside in a lovely ceremony that combined elements of both of their faiths. The ceremony was followed by an evening of dancing and fun at Phipps Conservatory. We met up a few weeks prior to the wedding for an engagement portrait session by the big duck that was a huge attraction in town last fall.

Here are some of my favorite photos from their day.
