Amie + Ben | Heinz History Center Wedding Photos

My weddings and especially the couples I’ve worked with this year have been sooooo amazing, and Amie and Ben were no exception. This a wedding you look forward to for SO many reasons. Having their ceremony and reception at an epic and unique wedding venue like Heinz History Center, having a first look early in the day to leave lots of time for photos, having beautiful bridal details (like a pink dress!) and reception details, having great vendors to work with (I’m looking at you, DJ Eric), having delicious food, and being an all-around awesome couple are just a few of those reasons. Amie & Ben’s wedding was classic, formal, and rich in their personalities, and I love how their florist summarized it: “like pink champagne bubbles at a black-tie wedding”. Here’s Amy & Ben’s story…

Amie and Ben were set up through mutual friends six years ago. One of Amie’s closest friends who she has known from high school (and their wedding officiant) and his brother Marc, who helped Ben get his first job, bringing him to Pittsburgh, thought that Amie and Ben would be a great match. They were right. Ben surprised Amie one spring weekend with a first-class trip to New York City, one of their favorite destinations. Before dinner on the first night Ben popped the question and they enjoyed their first weekend in the Big Apple as an engaged couple. The ring was a little big so Amie clenched her fist while walking around Manhattan for the entire two days.

Here are just a few of my favorites from their Heinz History Center wedding…
