The July 9th Pop Up Wedding was a beautiful day for three lovely couples, and a tremendous success for the amazing team of vendors that helped to put it all together!
For those of you that haven’t heard of a Pop Up Wedding… it is a fun and unique way to celebrate your wedding day! The wedding is completely styled at a unique and amazing location, and includes the venue, a ton of stylized décor, an officiant, cake, photographer, event planner and mini reception, altogether in one package. The wedding and mini reception last 1.5 hours, and is a perfect wedding solution for the modern, low-key, and off-beat wedding couple.
What I realized while photographing this Pop Up Wedding was that each and every couple that day had an amazing and unique aura about them. In the 1.5 hours I had to photograph their wedding, I got to see a small glimpse of the beautiful and special pieces that make them them: what makes them laugh, love, and cry. I heard vows that made me tear up… “every time you look at me, you make me feel like I am the most beautiful girl in the world.” I learned back stories about how they knew each other growing up, reconnected later in life, and fell in love. Every single couple told me how appreciative they were of the friends and family that traveled near and far to be a part of this special and intimate day. These couples are so lovely. What a better way to send them off into Happily Ever After than with a beautiful wedding, Pop Up Pittsburgh style?
Hats off to the talented group of wedding vendors that pour their heart and soul into ensuring the Pop Up was a success! A special thanks to Trish, who is owner and “imagineer” of the Pop Up Pittsburgh Wedding Co., and Vintage Alley Rentals.
