Jen + Alex | Intimate Phipps Wedding

I am loving this trend of intimate weddings! I’ve got another Intimate Phipps Conservatory Broderie Room wedding to share with you today.

Jennifer and Alex had the most gorgeous day. And despite a number of bumps in the road leading up to the day (including the Alfred Angelo fiasco, although they did ship her dress!), Jen was in such great spirits, and they had a gorgeous wedding ceremony! I am sure that it is so easy to get caught up in all of the details (and in the long run, the things that don’t truly matter), but Jen and Alex did not lose sight of the most important piece of their day… their marriage covenant.

It was such an honor to be there documenting their wedding day. Jen’s dad was the ceremony officiant, and they were surrounded by their closest friends and family. There is something really special about sharing the day with your closest friends and family. If I were to do it again 11 years later, it is probably what I would do. 🙂

And now a little about their sweet love story!

How did you meet?

I was a lifeguard at IUP and Alex was on the swim team. What a dreamboat!

How did he propose?

We were riding our bikes from Pittsburgh to D.C. and he proposed on big savage mountain on day 3 of our trip!!

What do you love most about Alex?

 Alex has the biggest heart. I appreciate his genuineness and kindness….and utmost patience!!!

Favorite Date Night:

Cooking a delicious dinner together and chilling on our patio with some good tunes or go on a bike ride to find new coffee shop.

What they love to do together:

Bike, laugh, workout, cook, dance, explore new tunes, road trips, find new coffee shops, find new places to eat & snuggles with Baloo!

I love when close friends and/or family marry a couple. It is always really personal, and so often funny. I think it is so important to enjoy the ceremony and have a laugh or 2. 🙂 Getting married is obviously a very serious thing, but I think it’s ok to be a little lighthearted.

Jen looked so gorgeous! I am so glad that her dress came in! She actually went out and bought a new dress, and came home to her original Alfred Angelo dress on her doorstep. phipps conservatory outdoor weddingphipps conservatory outdoor wedding

I love having time for portraits! It was so great to have the chance to walk around with Jen & Alex and use so many gorgeous areas of Phipps, and spend time getting to know them!
