This Phipps Conservatory Wedding was like no other!
Allison and Seth’s attention to detail was outstanding.
And no, I’m not just talking about the pretty little details, but about every single
piece that had a part into their wedding day.
Keep reading and you’ll see what I’m talking about!
“When Seth and I first started envisioning our wedding day, we knew that we wanted the day to be a reflection of us as individuals and as a couple.
This meant that the wedding ceremony was a very important part of the day!”
” We chose readings and songs that spoke to our love and respect for one another as individuals.”
Seth and Allison met in Virginia and now live in Minnesota.
But they were set to get married in Pittsburgh.
At the same Chapel where Steve and Laurie (Allison’s parents) shared their own vows, thirty four years ago!
And, they chose to have a Phipps Conservatory Wedding because gardening was a part of their childhood!
It’s all in the details!
Seth had custom made suspenders, in ancient McLellan clan tartan, for all his groomsmen and for his and Allison’s dad.
But that wasn’t all. He had the suspenders neatly packed in little take-out boxes!
How fun is that?!
Murphy, their adorable pup, also joined the clan by wearing a matching bow tie!!
Needless to say, Murphy stole the show for a little while!
There is so much more about this day, so many sweet moments shared.
So many priceless memories created.
But I’ll leave you to a few of my favorite images from Seth and Allison’s magical day!
From Allison & Seth
“Our favorite part of the day was turning around, after first being introduced as Mr. and Mrs. McLellan, to see the smiling faces of our family and friends, clapping, as the organ music swelled in the Chapel.
We had agreed beforehand to pause on the altar, for as long as we wanted, to take it all in before walking down the aisle together.”
