A Castle, a Ballgown, and a Prince

Every little girl’s dream — a Princess and Prince Charming get married at the castle! Bekah and Luke got married on November 8th at Shakespeare’s on the most beautiful fall afternoon. They had a lovely ceremony and a celebratory reception full of family, fun, and one of the best Pittsburgh Cookie Tables I’ve seen!

Congratulations you two!!

Shout it from the Rooftop!

In all of the chaos and tragedy that 2020 has brought, last Saturday was a welcomed celebration. Nearly everyone we passed on the street congratulated Brandon and Caroline — excited to have a reason to smile and be glad!

I’m confident Brandon and Caroline will bring many more smiles as they serve the Lord together and individually. What a joyous day to see this next chapter for you both — August 8, 2020. God is gracious and kind.

Love you both!

The Paschel’s Celebrate with Grace & Patience

2020 has been anything but ordinary, easy, or expected. Brides-to-be have been put through the ringer with new policies and mandates. Nicolette and Joe handled all the crazy this world had to offer and smiled through the hectic planning right down the aisle where they said ‘I Do.’

Their day was filled with joy and gratitude. It was a sweet privilege to capture their beautiful wedding (from a distance, with a mask).

Big shout out to Megan Read Photography for jumping in as my masked second!

Baby Blue I Do’s

Jess and JR are just the sweetest. I met them a little over a year ago as we sat in Starbucks laughing and dreaming about their wedding day. Time flies and we celebrated their marriage this past week!

The epic snowstorm of 2019 turned into a drizzly day, but the weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. Jess was glowing in one of the most beautiful wedding gowns I’ve ever seen and JR had his eyes locked on his bride from the time she walked down the aisle until the end of their evening.

Congratulations you two – I wish you all the best!



Shanna & Nick Say ‘I do!’

Shanna is the only bride I’ve worked with who was THRILLED that it rained while she was getting ready for her wedding! She said if ‘it rains on the day you’re tying the knot, it’s good luck — a wet knot is very difficult to untie.’

The rain stopped before the ceremony and we were left with a gorgeous sunset and rainbow to top it off! Congratulations Shanna and Nick, you two are so sweet together.

Chris & Jennie Make It Official

On a stunning fall afternoon, Chris and Jennie walked down a long aisle lined with flower gardens at Old Economy Village. Jennie’s smile is contagious and it’s obvious Christ just adores his new bride! What a privilege to capture your day. Congratulations you two!

Oh, and be sure to catch the ring bearer’s expression when Chris and Jennie kiss for the first time as husband and wife!

Shout out to the very talented Carley Danielle Photography for second shooting!


Not Too Rainy for Love

This past weekend we experienced the residual rainfall from Hurricane Gordon, but that couldn’t stop these two sweethearts from braving the elements and vowing their love to one another! Amber and Josh smiled their way through a rainy day and celebrated their marriage with family and friends. Congratulations to you both!

Shout out to Kim Hadden Photography for second shooting.
