Wedding at The Pennsylvanian | Pittsburgh, PA | Lenaya + Chris

My goodness!!!! Lenaya and Christopher have to be the most smiley, vivacious couple I’ve worked with to date!  I met them for the very first time when I arrived to film and I fell in love at first sight.  Chris and Lenaya shine so brightly that I swear you’d be able to see them from outer space!  These two laughed and danced all day long during their elegant, bohemian, Summer wedding in Downtown, Pittsburgh on August 3, 2019.

This was my very first wedding at The Pennsylvanian and I’m still in awe of the stunning outdoor rotunda that set the scene for this ceremony.  Chris prepared for the day with his groomsmen across the street at the Westin while Lenaya and her bridesmaids had their hair and make up done at the venue.  Damn did they look good!!! So obsessed with Lenaya’s long sleeved dress, bouquet and the flowers in her hair that I’m likely going to copy her exactly for my wedding next year.

The happy couple met in college at Slippery Rock University and learning their story though their vows had me tearing up immediately.  Now they own and run a business together in Georgia and I’d say much of their success has come from the kindness and positivity they radiate from within.  Getting to know these two has been a joy to say the least and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for them!!

Thank you Chris and Lenaya for sharing your love with the world!  Congratulations!!
