Oh my do I have a beautiful wedding to share with you today, and I am EXTRA excited because it's the very first wedding I photographed in 2018!! Hilary and Luke said "I do" mid-April at NOAH'S Event Venue in Cranberry Township and it was absolutely stunning!
It's no secret that Spring didn't really "spring" at the usual time this year, leaving us with a few lingering winter weather weeks. But - when I woke up the day of Hilary and Luke's wedding and checked the forecast, the weather was calling for a 77 degree day - hallelujah!! As you can imagine (or may have experienced!), it was a beautiful day in Western PA that day, and I was so thankful that Hilary, Luke, and their friends and family were able to enjoy the gorgeous weather!
We started off the wedding day at Hilary's family home, photographing her stunning bridal details and Maggie Sottero dress (with the most beautifully intricate beading!). Then, we headed off to NOAH'S for an intimate first look, then to Historic Harmony for photos of the bridal party and bride & groom! Historic Harmony is one of my all-time favorite spots for photos - there are so many beautiful colors and textures to work with, which especially complimented Hilary and Luke's blush and gray color scheme well!
After photos, we traveled back to NOAH'S Event Venue for a beautiful ceremony, surrounded by chandeliers, lanterns, and green garland. At the reception, there was a HANGING CAKE (yes, you read that correctly!) that almost stole the show! After some heartfelt toasts and lots of dancing, Hilary and Luke exited with a sparkler exit and drove away as husband and wife!
