Steph + Brandyn at Lingrow Farms | Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

 @Jill Gearhart Photography |

Lingrow Farms is the perfect venue for an easy and romantic wedding day! With a charming farmhouse to get ready in, its gorgeous gazebo for your ceremony, and a romantically lit barn for your reception, it’s an easy choice to have a stress free day with a luxury feel. The only thing “rustic” about this lovely location is the actual barn, and the surrounding property offers plenty of amazing portrait spots. I was pretty excited when I found out that there was a row boat, and luckily, these two were happy to indulge my need for creative portraits and climb in!

The staff at Lingrow is truly what sets them apart - when the ceremony was over and we were done with family portraits, the staff delivered appetizers and drinks to the entire bridal party during pictures, right where we were! Then, the staff helped me get Steph and Brandyn into and out of the rowboat. Later during the reception, not only were the vendors served the same delicious food as everyone else, but we were permitted to go through the line first! We even had our own private table downstairs, and the DJ’s had a pitcher of ice water at their table in the loft (which, was accessible with safe, normal stairs - no scary ladders!)

It was helpful that the service was perfect, because Steph and Brandyn deserved nothing but the best on their day. These two met when they attended college at IUP and actually had a long distance relationship for two years before being able to be together in Indiana. Their adorable pup Moe lives happily with them, and you can often see him working out with his mom Steph in her instagram stories! In fact, both Steph and Brandyn work in the physical fitness industry, and though they are beautiful on the outside, they are just as lovely on the inside. Steph and I have grown close over the last year, sharing life stories and encouraging each other several times a week. It’s been exciting for me to see every piece of this wedding come together just as she dreamed, and I couldn’t be happier for the both of them!
