Jessica and Andy | The LeMont Wedding

“I just wanted our wedding day to be 75 degrees and sunny” Jessica tells me as we step outside to take pictures.  “I can’t believe that is exactly the weather we got!”  It was honestly one of the most beautiful Pittsburgh October days I can remember, and this wish-came-true couldn’t have happened to a better couple.

Jessica and Andy got married at the West End Overlook, and had their reception at the iconic and beautiful LeMont on Mt. Washington.  This lovely couple had a first look at The Point (which included their cute and fluffy little pup, Leo!  I am enamored with him, and swear he and Benny would be best friends.)

Even though Jessica and Andy had a first look, I will never forget the wave of emotion that captured Andy when he saw Jessica and her father walk across the park and down the aisle.  Watching him hold back the tears made me tear up.  His expression was almost as tender as the way he held Jessica during their first dance.  Dang, I just love how you can see how much they love each other.

And Jessica, I mean. WOW. She was absolute perfection in her Hayley Paige wedding gown and Jimmy Choo wedding shoes.  I just about fell over when I saw her in her dress!  A goddess with the most kind and loving heart.  The type of person that people flock to because she is such a sweet and fun person.  I’ll never forget the opening line of her first email to me “We are looking to find a photographer who takes great photographs and will have fun with us on our wedding day!”  Jessica and Andy are *such* a fun couple, and their wedding day was nothing short of amazing!

Take a look to see what I mean…
