Renaissance Hotel Wedding Day Photography | Matthew Blassey
Ashley & Sean kicked off their wedding day in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh at the iconic Renaissance Hotel. Both of their suites provided breathtaking views of the city as well as beautiful window light for “getting ready” candids. All & all, it was a great starter to my day of shooting.
Shortly before the ceremony, we took a stroll down a couple of blocks from the Renaissance to a small street corner parklet for a handful of creative portraits set against a picturesque two-story ivy wall and then trekked over to the Clemente Bridge for a closing portrait of Ashley & Sean. Afterward, we traveled atop Mount Washington to the elegant Le Mont Restaurant, where they had planned both their ceremony & reception festivities. I captured one of my favorite black & white photos during Ashley & Sean’s vows, positioned in front of the restaurant’s full-length windows, overlooking a spectacular view of the city at sunset.
Ashley & Sean’s wedding had a free flowing & relaxed vibe throughout the events of the day, and a lot of that had to do with their calm & casual approach. Sean & Ashley shared a quiet & intimate sense of love that was not only highly present amongst the two of them but also warmly resonated throughout their circle of close friends and family.
Special thanks again to Ashley & Sean for having me be a part of their special day. I wish them the very best in their new life together!
