The Strip, Louboutins, Amazing Reception Guests and a Silver Glove

I met my last bride and groom, Alison and AJ through the lovely Josh and Heidi Telin who's wedding I shot last July.  It was a perfectly sunny day in Pittsburgh on June 30th. The ceremony was held at the beautiful St. Stanislaus Church in the Strip District.  Although the old church didn't have AC, it was incredibly beautiful and the guests and bridal party didn't let the heat get to them!  We made our way to the North Side to take portraits at the Allegheny Commons Park.  I'm quite the shoe freak, so seeing Alison's Christian Louboutins was a treat! I knew we'd get to take some fun photos with the red bottom, my favorite is below :)
 
Alison and AJ's bridal party was one of the best I've had the pleasure of spending the day with.  They didn't leave a dull moment.  Things got even better once the reception started and everyone hit the dance floor.  At one point the groom had a silver glove on and had a solo dance to Michael Jackson!  Thanks to the family, friends, bridal party, and newlyweds, this day was fabulous and so much fun to shoot.
