Kellie + Adam: J. Verno Studios Wedding Photos

It all started when Kellie, while on a walk with her son, asked Adam if she could pet his dog. Later, Kellie found a note on her car with Adam's number on it, one thing led to another, and at the end of August, Kellie and Adam officially tied the knot at J Verno Studio in a destination here in Pittsburgh, PA!

Oh, and Adam's dog, Kimber, served as the "best dog" for their wedding day  🐶 Talk about the perfect role for the pup that brought them together in the first place!

You’ll also see quite a hilarious “fake” first look in the photos below, which was absolutely hilarious and so much fun to photograph!

All in all, we had the very best time hanging out with these two and their incredible friends and family! Congratulations to you and your sweet family, Kellie & Adam! It was such an honor to be a part of your day! 🎉

Molly + Ryan: Shady Elms Farm Wedding Photos

Molly and Ryan are a Pittsburgh sports loving, family-oriented couple who had the most beautiful wedding day at Shady Elms Farm in early August!

After these two got engaged on the front steps of Molly’s parents’ house on Thanksgiving day of 2018, they planned their wedding in less than a year (which, nowadays, is a huge feat!) and made sure to keep the day focused on what really matters: their relationship, along the new beginning of their life together, and their family, who they treasure and admire so much (and it’s so easy to see why!).

What I found most intriguing about working with Molly and Ryan was how different, yet perfect they are for each other. Molly’s free-spirited, bubbly personality, perfectly balances Ryan’s sincere, analytical, and organized approach to life (his minute-by-minute wedding day timeline spreadsheet was a big hit in the wedding day toasts!!). They truly make the perfect pair, and it was such an honor to be a part of their day! 💛 Congratulations on your marriage, Molly and Ryan!!

Becca + Dino: Duquesne University Power Center Wedding Photos

Becca and Dino's summery, light blue and blush romantic wedding day was something out of a fairytale (and not just because her dress had some serious Beauty & the Beast vibes 💛). Their Mexican-Catholic wedding ceremony took place at the very place where they met - Duquesne University, followed by a reception in the Duquesne University Power Center, overlooking campus and the city. They had so many incredible details, including Becca’s bouquet, which was wrapped in a sleeve from her mother’s wedding gown with her rosary beads wrapped around the stems, as well as Mexican wedding traditions, including the placing of a double rosary (or Lasso) over their shoulders during the ceremony, as well as the exchange of 13 gold coins (or Arras). Not to mention their epic maraca exit at the end of the evening where they danced their hearts out as they left the party as husband and wife!

I couldn’t begin to speak more highly of these two and their incredible friends and family - I’ve been counting down to their wedding since their engagement session a little over a year ago, and it was even more incredible than I thought it would be!!

Congratulations on your wedding day and on your marriage, Becca & Dino! We are so thankful to have been a part of your beautiful day!! 💕

Tamra & Chad: The Grand Estate at Hidden Acres Wedding Photos

Chad and Tamra’s summer pink and navy wedding took place at the Grand Estate at Hidden Acres on one of the most beautiful, summer July days! These two Office loving, dog parents had one of the most FUN wedding days we’ve seen from beginning to end!

Some of my favorite details included some subtle Office details - like the signature drinks, named after two main characters in the show, Jim & Pam - and the entrance into their reception, which was taken from Jim & Pam’s wedding (in the show)! Not to mention the beautiful invitation suite & signage, designed by the groom himself!

Chad and Tamra, it was such an honor to be a part of your wedding day! I hope these photos serve you well for many years to come! 💛

Alyssa & Billy: Bella Sera Wedding Photos

Alyssa and Billy met on the University of Pittburgh’s campus in January of 2014, and during a trip to Vegas in November of 2017, Billy asked Alyssa to spend the rest of her life with him - and in June of 2019, they finally said “I do” on one of the most beautiful Pittsburgh days!

From the very first phone call I had with Alyssa, I knew these two were an incredible pair. Both Alyssa and Billy are the type of people who you immediately feel comfortable with - you know, the ones that are so kind and who go out of their way to make sure everyone around them feels like an old friend! So, as you can imagine, their wedding day was a dream! Their friends and family made us feel like a part of the family, and we had the pleasure of working with an incredible vendor team that kept the whole day running ahead of schedule (which is no easy feat on a wedding day!).

Alyssa and Billy, it was such an honor to be a part of your wedding day. Wishing you two all of the very best as you start your married lives together! 💛

Valerie & Matt: NOAH's Event Venue Cranberry Township Wedding

When two graphic designers decide to get married, you better believe it’s going to be one absolutely gorgeous celebration - and Val and Matt’s wedding did not disappoint (hence the detail overload that you’ll see below!! 🙈) Val and Matt’s day featured shades of emerald, hunter green, champagne, merlot, and touches of brighter pink with lots of florals alongside varied metals and industrial elements (including cement blocks and hand-poured cement hearts, made by the bride!). Their entire day took place at NOAH’S Event Venue in Cranberry Township, PA, which served as a lovely backdrop for their soft/romantic meets industrial vision.

Of course, being graphic designers, Val and Matt designed their invitations together, which was one of my favorite details of their day! Another favorite detail was their ceremony, which included a unique element that I hadn’t seen at a wedding ceremony before. Val and Matt had an “Oathing Stone Ceremony,” where they each held a stone in their hand while saying their vows. Originally practiced in Scotland, the Scottish believed that a vow given near a stone or water was more binding. Over the years, this ceremony has evolved from seeking out a stone or water to the wedding couple physically holding a stone in their hand while saying their vows. Some think this is where the saying “set in stone” originated from.

Val and Matt, thank you for the incredible honor of being a part of your wedding day. It’s so easy to see how much you two love each other, and how loved you are by your friends and family! Congratulations on a beautiful wedding day and on your marriage! 💛

Cait & Brian: White Barn Wedding Photos

Cait and Brian met in high school and started dating in the summer of 2011, and this past June, they tied the knot at the White Barn in Prospect, PA - which will always hold a special place in my heart, since it’s where my husband and I got married in 2015! 💛

Cait and Brian’s wedding day featured lots of happy tears (as you’ll see in the photos below! 😭), and lots of sentimental details. For their overall theme, Cait and Brian decided on tropical decor, incorporating tropical leaves and greenery into the bouquets and centerpieces - and some of Brian’s Hawaiian relatives even brought them leis!

Their day was a total dream to be a part of! Cait and Brian, you are both so kind, so sweet, and we were so honored to capture the first day of the rest of your lives! Congratulations my friends!!!
