Fred and Haley were married on September ninth in a brunch wedding at the Pittsburgh Botanic Gardens. It was such a pleasure to be their wedding photographer for their beautiful wedding day!
This gorgeous autumn wedding was actually a brunch wedding. In all my years as a wedding photographer, I’ve only photographed one other brunch wedding before! I have to say, brunch weddings are my new favorite thing. The staff over at the Pittsburgh Botanic Gardens REALLY knocked it out of the park. You can see why if you look at the photos of the food!
This weekend was also one of INCREDIBLE rain. Like, sideways rain where you couldn’t see. It was unbelievable. While this threw a bit of a wrench in the outdoor wedding plans, the ceremony was moved inside to a stunning tent and all was well.
It also helps that Fred and Haley were up for anything. This bride and groom followed my crazy self into the rain with an umbrella. And we might have gotten a little bit wet, but I personally think it was worth it. Their rainy wedding portraits are amongst my favorite rain photos! The rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits and the day was so much fun.
Fred and Haley also had their puppy in the wedding! He was the softest, most adorable pup ever! I love when couples include their pets in their wedding day. After all, they’re all one big family now!
Haley and Fred, thank you so much for having me as your wedding photographer. Despite the rain, your wedding day was such a fun event. I wish you both (and your puppy) all the best in your new life together.
