The Searcys | Julia + Jacob | A Phipps Conservatory Wedding + The Smallman Galley Restaurant Reception | Pittsburgh, PA


The first time I met Julia + Jake I knew we were going to hit it off. I couldn't wait for their wedding, which was going to be featuring things that really encompassed who they are as individuals as well as a couple. 

I'm going to backtrack for a second to talk about our amazing weekend in Ann Arbor, Michigan capturing their engagement session. They wanted to really capture their relationship in a true way, so we ventured to the pretty outdoors of Michigan at the Arb in the morning at sunrise, and ended up at their rock climbing gym Planet Rock in the evening after they treated us out to dinner! This just shows how sweet and caring these two are. Getting to know them both better that weekend got Nickie and I even more excited for their wedding day, which was even better than I imagined. Special thanks to Emily for helping out toward the end of the evening! Their outdoor ceremony at Phipps Conservatory was just beautiful, they had the best warm + cloudy day for portraits followed by a short trip up to Mt. Washington, and made our way to their reception at the Smallman Galley. Their reception meal featured a 5 course meal, great conversation, and killer dance moves. We were excited to end the evening with a few nighttime portraits right in the Strip District (actually right in the middle of the road). We couldn't be happier for The Seacys and are happy to have them as friends!
