Intimate Vow Renewal in Downtown Pittsburgh

A vow renewal done right in the ‘Strip District’ of downtown Pittsburgh!! Our bride and groom celebrate their love in an intimate, ‘trash the dress style’ ceremony in the Pittsburgh!

We are huge fans of love in the city – especially when it involves formal wear and wedding photos with a graffiti backdrop! Oh, and did we mention that our bride and groom stroll away into their future – hand in hand – past the famous Primanti Brothers?! There are so many subtle but striking touches to the design of this vow renewal that we can’t decide which is our favorite!! Crimped hair in a chic bridal updo, personalized vow books, bride tribe jackets (with sunnies), pops of jewel tones, and an intimate vow renewal ceremony right in the middle of a concrete jungle!!

PS: be sure to peep the flower girl & the ring bearer – cuteness overload!!!

This shoot took place in Downtown Pittsburgh at a place called the “Strip District.” It’s one of the most popular places in the city. We tried to capture the essence of it all, including the raw beauty of the Graffiti, Primanti Brothers, and the 16th Street Bridge.  I had friends who really wanted better Wedding Photos, and we turned the whole thing into a Vow Renewal for them. It was really a touching moment since I’ve known Jenny, the Bride, for almost 10 years. The whole gang, myself included, have grown up in this city and love everything about it. So, having this was really special for everyone. – Jenn of Jennmarie Photography
