Kristen and Steve were married at the Gathering Place at Darlington Lake. It is a beautiful venue north of Pittsburgh overlooking the lake. This couple is so much in love, and this wedding has been a long time coming. You could just see it throughout the entire day. I don't always cry at weddings, but I definitely had tears in my eyes for this one (when the groom cries, I always lose it!).
While they didn't see each other before the ceremony, they had a letter exchange and were able to talk to each other. It is always an emotional moment. After the ceremony, their friends and family celebrated in style, with some epic dance moves. Check it out!

Rachel and Bob had a gorgeous wedding! All their details were so stunning, from the ice sculpture to the summery florals. Personally, I’m obsessed with Rachel’s hair color, and how well it worked with the style she picked!
Miko & Steve had a small, gorgeous wedding at the Andy Warhol museum. First off, I’m obsessed with her dress - which she MADE herself. Does it get better than that? Their style went perfectly with the museum; which is where we did most of their photos. They didn’t have a wedding party, so we focused on them. They even walked down the aisle together!
Roxy & Brendan got married in a very small, private ceremony in their hotel room at Hotel Indigo, then we walked down the street to Ace Hotel for their reception, taking photos along the way.
What a gorgeous day for a wedding! Ashleigh & Adam got ready at their home (he was downstairs, she was on the first floor) and they drove together to there ceremony. He had to wear a blindfold so that he didn’t catch a glimpse of her in the dress too early! The ceremony took place at Heinz Chapel, and then we drove around the city for their portraits, stopping at the columns, Mellon Park, and (of course) Mt. Washington.
Jim and Maura are amazing human beings. They held an all-American, red, white & blue themed wedding at Presque Isle lighthouse, which was just stunning (just wait till you see all these photos!). Maura got ready at her parents’ house in Erie, while Jim donned his suit at a nearby hotel. They were then married at St. Peter’s Cathedral, a beautiful church.
Melissa & Zach got married in a beautiful ceremony at Cafe Brauer, a venue space at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. They came to me last year for engagement pictures, and we ended up having so much fun they brought me out to photograph the wedding!
Suzanne & Kevin celebrated their 30th anniversary with an intimate vow renewal. We started off the day with portraits at the Walled Garden at Mellon Park with their family (who were dressed impeccably! I’m obsessed with the all light color scheme!). Then we headed down to Mansions on Fifth for the actual ceremony; performed by their friends.
Steph & Dan had a beautiful wedding day! Their ceremony was at St. Bonaventure, which ended with a fun ribbon wand exit. Then we headed over to Washington's Landing for portraits. Unfortunately, the rain chased us back onto the bus for about 20 minutes, but luckily we were running ahead of schedule and had time to wait out the storm! Steph changed into tennis shoes, and was able to climb up the bridge for some amazing shots. Then we partied the night away at the Sheraton.
Sarah & Jon had a beautiful wedding day! I loved the colors they chose - it made for a timeless, classic look. A nice surprise was having their pups come to the church for portraits. Afterwards, the whole wedding party headed out to North Park for pictures. We found a gorgeous cozy spot off the beaten path, then headed to the party back at the hotel!
Allison & Jeff had an absolutely gorgeous day. The ceremony was at a St. Paul Lutheran Church; a beautiful small church right outside of Harmony. Afterwards, we headed to the historic district for photos. You can't go wrong in this neighborhood. The buildings set off the girl's dresses, and we had great weather.
