Kara & Robert

For my second wedding this June, I again visited Phipps for the ceremony. It was another spectacular day weather-wise, and the couple couldn't have been more excited about their special day. I met Kara and her bridesmaids at the salon to capture those shots. Then we stopped by her room at the fantastic Renaissance Hotel downtown to grab her wedding dress and things. They had a trolley pick both wedding parties up from the hotel and take everyone to Phipps where Kara got ready for the ceremony. This happened to be the weekend the Furries were in town, but alas, we weren't able to find any fully dressed Manimals to get some pictures with. That would have been a riot. The ceremony was beautiful, and afterward we had the opportunity to visit a few atrium rooms at Phipps for pictures. We took the trolley over to the West End Overlook for pictures, and then headed to the Clemente Bridge to board the boat along the Allegheny. Their reception was on one of the Gateway Clipper's larger boats, so we got to view the city from all three rivers. What a wedding!
