Scott and Jessica were married on September 22 with a ceremony at Heinz Chapel and a gorgeous reception at the Pitt University Club. It was so much fun to be their wedding photographer. Their wedding day was truly a day to remember.
This bride and groom’s love story takes them all the way back to 2009 when they were freshmen in college. Jessica was on a weekend trip visiting friends at Pitt. The very first night they met, Scott actually told his friend Jason that he knew he would marry Jessica. The two started dating, and Jessica ended up transferring to Pitt for Nursing School in 2010. They’ve made it through college, a time where they dated long distance and then back to Pittsburgh. Scott proposed in February, 2017 right in their apartment when Jessica came home from work one night. Then, the next day he surprised her again with a helicopter ride all over Pittsburgh. What a romantic gesture, to share such an amazing experience above the city that hosted their love story!
Everything about this wedding was easy and fun. Jessica and Scott had it all planned out to flow smoothly, and everything went like clockwork. We even had a few extra moments to do some fun wedding portraits in Heinz Chapel — one of my personal favorite wedding ceremony spots! (Who doesn’t love old stone architecture?!) It was also so convenient that we were able to walk everywhere. We even called for the Pitt transportation bus that took us over to Heinz Chapel – it was perfect!
And speaking of perfect, The University Club is such a breathtaking Pittsburgh wedding venue. During the reception, we ran outside on the balcony (where the couple had cocktail hour!) to get some gorgeous photos as Scott and Jessica enjoyed their first sunset as husband and wife. We even made sure to get the Cathedral of Learning in the background of their wedding photos!
Jessica and Scott, thank you so much for asking me to be your wedding photographer. Lizzy and I had so much fun capturing your Pittsburgh wedding! Best wishes to you both in your life together!
