Phipps Conservatory Wedding Celebration
These two. I can’t even with them! One of the BEST things about my job is getting to know couples. When I went to New York City to capture their engagement session, they showed me their world, personality and love in such a real way. Their Phipps Conservatory wedding is no different! Both of them have such a rich family heritage that shone brightly for all to see. Thanks for having me you guys! Now for the good stuff…
Answered by Sarah, the beautiful bride:
What was your inspiration behind your wedding day?
Flowers, gardens, the outdoors and of course our relationship! We have a pretty diverse group of friends/families and wanted that represented in ways throughout the day as well! We tried to pull those elements through with naming the tables different cities we’re from/been to, an assortment of Italian & Indian cookies at our Pittsburgh cookie table and our Indian inspired pashmina favors!
Advice to share with brides planning now?
Oof, the day really does go by faster than you think. If you think you are going to eat at your own wedding, I’m telling you now you won’t. On you day, take 5 min to just step away with your partner and take it all in.
Other big tip is getting the requests for proposals out early as possible. I didn’t realize how long it would take to go through picking each vendor (photographer, florist, etc.). Each piece takes a while to nail down!
What was your favorite memory from your big day?
When a little chipmunk joined the bridesmaids and I for a prayer leading up to the ceremony. He joined us for the whole thing:)
