A Last Gasp of Brightly Colored Inspiration for Pittsburgh Summer Weddings

Labor day has come and gone, the kids are back in school and the stores are full of fall decorations. This fun bright colored wedding shoot is a last gasp of summer before we truly turn to the glories of fall. May all these bright colors give you the feeling of summer, freedom from schedules, vacations, and fun in the sun.

Pittsburgh Botanic Gardens, while a perfect wedding background in any season, is truly at its glory in the summer with its plants full of color and joy. It has indoor and outdoor spaces that offer a variety of backdrops for any style wedding, and the getting ready room is full of gorgeous vintage glam.

The details on the bride’s dress (Nima by Theia) from Blanc de Blanc wedding salon are a stunning beaded top and a gorgeous tulle skirt with a train. The gorgeous veil and beaded hair piece accent it perfectly.
