L'amour Vrai:: Kristen and Philip

I'm thrilled to introduce you to Kristen and Philip! They were married on April 16, 2011, in Pittsburgh, Kristen's hometown.

Kristen and I met in New York through a mutual college friend. However, after her wedding, she and her husband relocated to Paris (amazing, I know)!

Their wedding pictures are stunning, so I hope you enjoy!

The wedding ceremony was held at Heinz Chapel at the University of Pittsburgh. The church dates back to the 1930s and houses the tallest stained glass windows in the United States.

Even with a few drops of rain, the bridal party looks fantastic! Coordinating umbrellas are the perfect accessory for this black tie affair.

The bride chose to wear an Amy Kuschel gown and a chapel length veil. Each bridesmaid chose her own black dress and gold shoes. Kristen loved how this added personality to the wedding day look!

The reception took place across the street from the church at the Carnegie Art Museum. 

When Kristen and Philip began planning their dream wedding, they had a clear vision of how it would come to live. Elegant, yet simple, with a vintage inspired theme throughout every detail. The groom, and groomsmen, even wore tuxedos with tails. A traditional choice of attire in England, where Philip is from.

I loved seeing Kristen and Philip's inspiration come to life! And, their first anniversary is quickly approaching, so the biggest congratulations to you both!
