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!

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.
Maggie and Nate are the cutest couple. They are high school sweethearts, and they got married only a few weeks after graduating from college. Hard to believe they did all that planning during finals!
Taylor and Christian had an amazing wedding day at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. How can you go wrong when you get married in the Hall of Architecture!? Plus, photo opportunities with the dinosaurs and in the Music Foyer are beyond amazing.
Laura & Ryan are the sweetest, most hard-working people. A week after their wedding, they BOTH finished up MBAs - how crazy is that!? For their wedding, they went with a winter/glam vibe, especially apparent in the champagne & gold decor, fur wrap, and abundant candles at their reception. I loved every second of it. You could just see how much they love each other.
