Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Wedding
Julia and Steve were one of the first couples to have their wedding reception in the new grand ballroom at the Wyndham hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. So this post featuring their Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Wedding is kind of historic in its own way 🙂
A few months before the wedding we got together for an engagement portrait session. After spending a couple of hours with Julia and Steve, I knew that their wedding would be a great time! Julia is energetic, enthusiastic and stylish while Steve is a laid back guy with a very positive attitude. Since they live out of town it was great to have the opportunity to get to know each other a little before the wedding day. That’s one of the big benefits to doing engagement portraits.
Here are Julia and Steve in the street market along Penn Avenue in the Strip District.

Steve and the guys were already at St. Stanislaus in the Strip District (Lisa’s photo).
The flower girls were so cute!
Julia gets a look at the back of her gown in a mirror at the Wyndham. She likes what she sees!
Meanwhile, Steve’s dad helps him get ready (Lisa’s photo).
There was a Furry convention in town that weekend!
Ceremony at St. Stan’s
Julia and her mom share a moment before heading over to the church. Truthfully, moments like this are exactly what a photojournalist is looking for.
Julia gave her dad a kiss on the cheek before he walked her down the aisle.
The flower girls were doing their job (Lisa’s photo).
Certainly, St. Stan’s is a beautiful church.
Portraits in the Strip District
We had a great time walking around the Strip District for portraits after the wedding.
The wedding party got a little thirsty, so we stopped for some refreshments.
More toasts. This time in the limo on the way to the Wyndham!
It’s ginger ale 😊
Point State Park is a great place for portraits, so we took a quick moment before heading into the hotel.
Julia and Steve had a receiving line at the cocktail hour.
First up, Julia and Steve cut their cake.

Steve danced with his mom while Julia and Steve’s dad watched.
Julia and her dad were up next. The windows in the grand ballroom provided a beautiful backdrop.
After a quick change into her reception dress, Julia was back on the dance floor!
Then it was time for the Anniversary Dance.
Such a great evening!
Here’s another fun wedding at the Wyndham Grand.
