A Guitar Pick, Bouquet Bling and Intimate Ceremony at Phipps

This was my first wedding at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Schenley Park.  This beautiful, small and intimate wedding for Leah and Ben was a perfect spot for their close friends and family to gather.  There were so many things about this wedding that I loved! Before the ceremony, Leah gave Ben the gift of a guitar pick engraved with "Im glad we picked each other. 8-17-12." Leah's bouquet had "bling" all throughout and Ben's daughter's who were bridesmaids, had handmade hair clips that matched their dresses.

After the ceremony we had fun shooting throughout the gardens before we headed off to Doones Inn in Oakmont for the reception.  Ben's family traveled from Lincoln, Nebraska, so the homey Inn was the perfect choice. Leah and Ben were absolutely fabulous and I want to thank them for having me be a part of their big day! Congratulations :)
