Pittsburgh Children’s Museum Wedding
Laura and Carson’s Pittsburgh Children’s Museum Wedding.
Laura and Carson came back to Laura’s hometown of Pittsburgh for their wedding celebration. They’re a loving, gentle, humorous, and generous couple. Their also very detail-oriented people whose biggest concern was that their guests have a terrific time at their wedding. They totally succeeded in that, as you can see in the photos below.
Getting Ready for the Day
I loved Laura’s reaction as makeup artist showed her the results.
Carson and his brother got ready in a different room at the Hyatt on the North Shore (Lisa’s photo below).
Laura’s mom Maureen and her sister help her get her dress on.
Laura’s niece helped her with her dress as she headed for the first look.
Carson waited for Laura on the bridge over the water steps near PNC Park on the North Shore.
Molly, their Welsh Corgi was waiting for her turn to see Laura.
Ceremony at the Children’s Museum
Laura’s dad did his best to keep a smile on his face – he was pretty emotional before walking Laura down the aisle.
The ceremony was filled with laughter.
Reception in the Big Red Room
First dance. The big red room at the Children’s Museum is a great place for dinner and dancing. It’s very elegant and the huge Chinese lantern chandeliers are very cool.
Laura and Carson’s guests rushed the dance floor to join them after the first dance.

There was a sort of selfie machine at the Children’s Museum that would automatically project a grid of photos on the wall above the dance floor. I love to photograph expressive people. Everybody at this wedding was very expressive 🙂
Carson’s brother plays a mean air guitar.
There are so many different spots around the museum that offer interesting possibilities for portraits that I feel like I’ll never run out of ideas photographing there.
Thanks to my friend Jenna at the Pittsburgh Children’s Museum for working hard to ensure that everything and everybody was well taken care of. Thanks to Rania’s catering for a great meal and to the fantastic Allison McGeary for making the space more beautiful with her floral creations. Frank Shepard from DJ Rockin’ Bob’s kept the guests dancing while All Occasions and Lendable Linens did a great job in transforming the space into an elegant dining and dancing hall. Finally, thanks to the late, great Andy Schick for providing the tasteful, classy lighting in the big red room. His gentle personality and talent are missed.
This Pittsburgh Children’s Museum Wedding was so much fun. Here’s another great wedding for you to check out.
