Two grooms wed at Station Square: I can’t think of a better way to start the 2022 season than Jeremy and Josh’s wedding! From the moment I arrived it was apparent that not only were they excited for their wedding, EVERYBODY was absolutely over the moon that they were getting married. Documenting an event with that feeling of love all around is 100% the best thing about my job.
Two Grooms Wed at Station Square
It’s winter in Pittsburgh which, let’s be real, isn’t the reason we love our city. A great thing about having a wedding at the Sheraton Station Square are those giant floor-to-ceiling windows that look across the Monongahela River to the skyline of downtown. So that’s where Jeremy and Josh had their first look.
Not wanting to he guys chose to wear different colored tuxedos: Josh in navy blue and Jeremy in black.
Josh and Jeremy exchanged vows. Which was a great time to get an angle that shows their guests, too.
The couple’s sister-in-law Sarah wiped a tear as she read an excerpt from the Supreme Court of the United States Same Sex Marriage ruling by Justice Anthony Kennedy. Seven years on it remains a powerful testimony to equality in the right of same-sex couples to marry.
The wedding party applauds as Jeremy and Josh are declared to be married!
There was a whole lot of love when the wedding party congratulated the couple right after the ceremony!
I’d noticed that Josh and Jeremy were holding what looked to be passports while they were reading their vows. So I asked them about it when we were outside doing portraits. Jeremy had a Wizard of Oz passport holder and Josh had one that was Star Trek themed. I love details like that!
The clouds made a dramatic backdrop as Jeremy and Josh posed for a portrait on the Smithfield Street Bridge.
An excellent cookie table! Pro tip: I always judge by the pizzelles. My dad was a master pizzelle maker – they need to be crisp! The takeaway boxes were a nice touch.
The Wizard of Oz and Star Trek themes made it on to the cake from Bethel Bakery.
Jeremy’s brother sang “Simply the Best” a la Noah Reid from Schitt’s Creek for the first dance. It was a perfect choice.
This guy was like Johnny Pulling Baby up on stage at the end of “Dirty Dancing” when “Time of My Life” was played – except he did it for everyone who wanted to be lifted. Fantastic!
Speaking of Baby being lifted…
Guests packed the dance floor for the entire evening!
