Jamie & Nick are married! Everything about the entire day on Saturday was beyond beautiful, but my favorite part of it all was how genuinely happy Nick & Jamie were to be marrying one another. Their smiles throughout the whole wedding ceremony were inspiringly bright. Love is evident in the way they look at each other. They’re one of those couples who simply fit together & everyone thinks of Jamie when they think of Nick and vice versa. Their wedding details were classic & sophisticated in gold & ivory tones. Their Pittsburgh wedding day was stylish & timeless.  Their guests had a blast & enjoyed the most delicious meal by The Fluted Mushroom catering. One of my favorite parts of the wedding day, though, was hearing the staff at the Circuit Center Ballroom talk about Jamie & Nick when they weren’t around. We arrived at the beginning of cocktail hour because Jamie & Nick wanted to see the ballroom all decorated & then get to mingle & have fun with their guests at cocktail hour. When we entered the decorated ballroom, Jamie & Nick were blown away by how beautiful everything was. Then they got to go outside & enjoy cocktail hour with their guests. After they left the ballroom, the staff was talking about them & how genuinely happy & in love they are. We completely agree & couldn’t be happier for Jamie & Nick! They’re embarking on an adventure of a lifetime together & we can’t wait to see what the future will hold for them!Jamie_Nick_FBclassic ivory and gold weddingJamie’s taste is classy & impeccable.

It was perfect.classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingThis was one of my favorite moments. After Jamie walked down the aisle, stole the breath from Nick’s lungs, and stung his eyes with tears, the officiant let out a huge, audible “WHEW!” to Nick and he busted up laughing.classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingJamie & Nick each wrote & spoke their own vows.classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingThe crowd definitely loved Jamie’s line about loving Nick even though their senses of style are completely opposite. And she will love him even if he continues to “rock the man bun” until they’re old & gray. classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingThere’s nothing like that Just Married feeling!classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingAhhhh!

We were sad that we were missing a couple due to illness, but we hope the photos will at least somewhat make up for it.classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingAfter our time at the church, we went to the Hot Metal Bridge near their reception venue for bridal party portraits and bride & groom portraits.Jamie & Nick Wedding - Northway Christian Church - Dormont - Hot Metal Bridge - Circuit Center & Ballroom - Pittsburgh, PA Wedding Photographers_0132classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingWe could’ve photographed these two all day. They’re perfect together! classic ivory and gold weddingTheir love is just too sweet.classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingI’m so beyond honored that these two chose us as their wedding photographers! We had a few conversations right after they got engaged when they were planning & setting a date. Jamie told us she would completely understand if we wanted to take the day off shooting and just enjoy the family wedding. But we simply could not imagine NOT photographing this beautiful day between these two amazing people. We had such a wonderful time being their wedding photographers & we also enjoyed ourselves as family members, too. It was the best of both worlds.classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingThat DRESS! That tux! Those smiles! Wanna hear something so amazing & funny & great all at the same time?! On the night Jamie & Nick met, they both knew that they had met the person they wanted to marry. Seriously! Of course, they didn’t want to seem intense & insane so they didn’t say that to one another for quite some time (lol!), but they did tell their family members & close friends. Nick’s Best Man even mentioned that in his toast at their wedding. Well, on their second or third date, a random stranger came up to them & said, “You two would have beautiful babies!” hahaha! They both just looked at each other & laughed it off, but how did that person know they weren’t related or something?! I can’t stop giggling at that, but that person is so right. . . classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingJamie & Nick’s sister-in-law who works with Petal Pushers made all of the beautiful bouquets & centerpieces.

classic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingclassic ivory and gold weddingOne of their requests was to possibly find a park so they could have at least some photos with greenery. But the time gap in between their ceremony & reception wasn’t too large so going to a park would’ve been difficult. We spotted this tiny little alcove of green right by the Hot Metal Bridge & violá. . . park photos!  These two looked stunning no matter what their surroundings, though!

This is one of our favorite engagement sessions for so many reasons! Marissa & Logan are so chill & laid back together because they’ve known each other their entire lives. Logan’s son Rolland is absolutely adorable! And the location for their session is stunning! The views! We’re looking forward to their wedding in January! We’re crossing our fingers for some fresh-fallen snow.
country engagement photosHe’s such a cutie! And even though he’s a rambunctious almost four-year-old boy, he was such a gem for the photo session! He listened so well & was a ham for the camera.country engagement photoscountry engagement photosPlus, his boots! I mean, it can’t get much cuter!country engagement photosThis little boy is very loved by his daddy & ‘Rissa (as he calls Marissa).country engagement photoscountry engagement photoscountry engagement photoscountry engagement photoscountry engagement photosMarissa is super gorgeous! She’s going to be the most stunning bride & I’m so excited to see what kind of dress she chooses! Her sister Erica got married a couple of years ago & we photographed her wedding, too! We absolutely love when we get to photograph the wedding of a sister or a brother or a bridesmaid or groomsmen of a past bride or groom. Wow, that sentence was something else. haha! But seriously, we love getting to know the whole family a bit better & see the bridesmaid/groomsman become the bride or groom!country engagement photoscountry engagement photosThis is a favorite! This would be a stunning huge canvas print. Would it be weird if I hung this on my wall? Probably? Okay, I won’t. hehe. The views at Logan’s childhood home are unreal!country engagement photosThese two love to tease each other all of the time & laugh a lot. They have an unparallelled level of comfort together since their families have been friends for so many years. As kids, their families got together all of the time & even went on trips together. They were girlfriend & boyfriend in elementary school (awwww!) and then reunited again at a family wedding.country engagement photosAnd then he asked her to marry him while they were on a family snowboarding trip in Colorado. Marissa’s sisters & mom knew it was coming the entire trip & kept teasing Logan about when it was going to go down. They almost slipped up a few times because they were so excited they couldn’t stand it. He thought about proposing in front of the whole family, but then he ended up asking Marissa to marry him when it was just the two of them, which she said was  perfect. country engagement photosWhat a great looking couple!country engagement photoscountry engagement photoscountry engagement photosMarissa’s hair is beautiful!

We got to celebrate Ashley & Joe’s marriage with their lively friends & family members on Saturday at St. Rose Catholic Church in Girard & Leo’s Ristorante in Warren. Everything was beautiful & went so smoothly. It never fails when we tell people that we’re wedding photographers that we hear, “Oh, you must have some pretty crazy stories.” We have really fun stories, that’s for sure, but it’s nothing crazy or out of control like people think. Brides are so organized & relaxed because they take their time & plan their wedding day carefully. Ashley & Joe’s wedding day was relaxed, full of stunning details, happy, and celebratory- exactly how a wedding day should be! The wedding day timeline was relaxed because Ashley & Joe did a great job with planning. And the people surrounding them on their wedding day were the people who support them most in life & will be there for them throughout their marriage. We’re so glad we were part of the beautiful day!Youngstown wedding photographerYoungstown wedding photographerAshley is a natural beauty! This is her with no makeup. . . seriously?!

Katie & Troy’s Youngstown engagement photo session in Mill Creek Park was full of goofy fun, laughs, warm light, and fun. It was just way too much fun. Did we say we had fun? Because we had a ton of fun! Katie & Troy are adorably goofy together & are always teasing & joking around. When your relationship starts by meeting at a party & includes someone pushing someone else into a pool at said party (we won’t mention who pushed whom lol), you know you’re starting an adventure!

Samantha & Michael enjoyed the loveliest wedding day on Saturday! They were both full of smiles all day & it was all about celebrating their love. We always love shooting at St. Columba Cathedral in Youngstown; it’s a gorgeous church to be married in! And just wait until you see the huge, happy smiles on their faces throughout the entire ceremony! It’s truly beautiful to witness two people so excited to spend together forever. After photographing the wedding ceremony at St. Columba, we ventured to one of Samantha & Michael’s favorite spots to hang out- Magic Tree in Boardman. It was a really relaxed afternoon & their bridal party & family members had a great time! Then it was time to party at The Lake Club! We absolutely love photographing wedding receptions at The Lake Club because they’re always organized & beautiful, and the food is amazing! The tunes were spun by Bryan Ladd Productions; he does a great job facilitating a fun reception! We also got to work with our friends from Acclaim Video Productions, Mike & Judy. All in all, it was a fabulous wedding day for so many reasons & we were really blessed to get to be part of it! Samantha & Michael, we know you’re enjoying your honeymoon, and we hope seeing a few images from your wedding day will bring a huge smile to your face just like that day! We’ll be in touch when you return from your travels!
