Grove City College Engagement Session: Rachel & Paul

College was THE best, am I right?  Man, what I wouldn't give to relive that time of my life for just one day.  That's probably why I loved this Grove City College engagement session so much.  Besides GCC being just a stone's throw away from my alma mater – Allegheny College – this shoot from Jenna Hidinger Photography is sunny, summery, and downright adorable.  Since Rachel and Paul met right here on campus, they wanted to return for their pre-wedding photos and take in all of the sites that were a part of the start of their love story.  Traipsing all of over campus, the pair looked beautifully in love…and who knew Grove City College's grounds were so pretty?!  These photos are charming, sweet, and they are sure to have you saying “Go Wolverines!” in no time.

From the photographer…

The bride and groom met at Grove City College – which is where they decided to have their engagement session!  Grove City College is such a unique campus to shoot on.  There are so many hidden nooks and crannies for beautiful photos – I had such a blast taking these photos!  Plus, when the couple is as sweet as Rachel and Paul, my job is incredibly easy!

Modern Chic Wedding at the Pennsylvanian: Mallory & Zach

Inspired by sophisticated style and clean lines, this wedding is about as chic as it gets.  Mallory has always adored the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis.  When she married Zach, the pair channeled their styles as they designed a day that was timeless and refined.  They even dressed the part with the groom donning an always-in-style black and white tuxedo while Mallory wore a figure-flattering Anne Barge mermaid gown with a delicate bow at the waist.  A classic black and white color scheme fit with the grand beauty of The Pennsylvanian, which was flawlessly designed by Shayne of Soiree by Souleret – the bride's sister!  It pays to have a wedding planner in the family because this affair was stunning.  Lavish florals from Mocha Rose Floral and Event Design, fresh white roses at each place setting, ornate gold detailing, and even a few surprises for the bride and groom gave the historic venue a fresh, modern look that oozed romance and elegance.  These images from Ryan Zarichnak Photography are sure to leave you speechless!

From the bride…

Tell me about yourselves!  When and how did you meet?  How long have you been together?  How did you get engaged?  All the juicy details!

Zach and I met in college at Penn State Behrend.  He played soccer and I ran track and cross country, so we always seemed to cross paths with other student athletes but we weren't formally introduced.  We officially met at a track party, talking the entire night about everything we had in common.  Soon after, I transferred to Penn State’s University Park Campus and was dating someone else, and unfortunately we lost touch.  In 2008, I was single again, visiting friends at Penn State Behrend, and the rest is history.

Zach tried to ask my dad for permission for several months.  Living in Atlanta and traveling back to Pittsburgh only for holiday visits made it difficult to get him alone.  He eventually ran out of time, but still wanted to propose while we were home for Christmas break.  One night, a close friend was having a party and we got ready at my parents’ house.  After trying to get my dad alone all day, Zach eventually got him isolated and asked just 20 minutes before proposing!  On the way to the party, we passed by Mt. Washington, where a friend lived.  Zach asked if I minded if we stopped by to say hello.  We parked in front of the friend’s house and he said, “Well, while we're here, we might as well go to the overlook.”  Not thinking anything of it, we walked to the overlook, looked at the city, and he got down on one knee.

Describe the wedding and what inspired it.  What was unique about it?

Zach and I both appreciate simplicity.  Our style is classic and sophisticated, so the wedding was no different.  I have always been inspired by the looks of Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis, and I loved their personal style.  I knew I wanted something with clean lines for my dress and the bridesmaids dresses.  However, I had to add some bows for a little Kate Spade inspiration.  We always envisioned getting married in Pittsburgh because that is where we both are originally from.  I was always in love with The Pennsylvanian – the history of the building and the grandeur.  To be honest, the gold walls always reminded me of the ballroom in Beauty and the Beast.  Also, when we told Zach's late grandmother that we were getting married at The Pennsylvanian, she mentioned that was where she saw the troops off to war for World War II.  There were so many reasons, but the main reason was the space was just so special and breathtaking on its own that it didn't need tons of decorations.

What was your favorite moment of the day?

Our favorite moment was when I walked down the aisle to our close friend playing an acoustic version of ”Moon River” on the guitar.  I first fell in love with the song when I watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  It was such a sentimental moment because the guitarist was one of Zach's best friends and a groomsman that is married to one of my best friends from middle school.  It was also amazing to have a personal song played while I looked at Zach for the first time.  In addition to the special song, all our loved ones were in one room, which may never happen again.

Another favorite moment was when Shayne, our planner and my sister, took us into The Pennsylvanian for the first time.  It was amazing to see everything and take it all in before any of the guests were invited to sit for dinner.  She also had several surprises for us as her wedding gift and it all looked so breathtaking!

Is there any advice you would give to other couples planning their big day?

Trust your vendors and tie in family traditions!  We were blessed to have my amazing sister, Shayne Souleret from Soiree by Souleret, as our wedding planner, as well as a team of outstanding vendors.  For the wedding, I wore my sister's veil.  It was one of my favorite things because it made me feel so bridal and special.  I also wore Zach’s great grandma's necklace that has been worn by all the women in his family on their wedding day.

Sweet Outdoor Engagement Session: Maggie & Nate

As the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, this outdoor engagement session is just want I need.  High school sweethearts Maggie and Nate love being in nature, and Nate even proposed by carving their initials into a tree.  A pre-wedding shoot in the great outdoors was the perfect fit for these two.  They explored some really gorgeous scenery with Kathryn Hyslop Photography – tall trees, a still lake, an open field, a bubbling waterfall, blooming wildflowers, and a bright sunshine-y sky all make an appearance.  All the while, Maggie and Nate are being as cute as can be.  Naturally magical and super sweet, this session has me wishing summer would stick around for a loooooong time!

From the bride…

Tell me about yourselves!  When and how did you meet?  How long have you been together?  How did you get engaged?  All the juicy details!

We were high school sweethearts at the age of seventeen.  We have known each other our whole lives.  One thing that Nate and I love to do together is go for long walks in the Wintergreen Gorge by our college, Penn State Behrend.  This is where he proposed to me by carving our initials into a tree.  It was very thoughtful and sweet!

Describe the engagement session and what inspired the shoot.  What was unique about it?

Nate and I love spending time in nature so we knew that we wanted our engagement pictures to take place outside.  It was a gorgeous July evening and I couldn't be happier with how the pictures turned out.  I think that our shoot was particularly unique because it featured so many different types of scenery such as the lake, a waterfall, a field, and the woods.

What was your favorite moment of the day?

My favorite moment of the day was just spending quality time with Nate while Katie took our pictures.  The sunset photos turned out extremely beautiful.  She made the environment extremely comfortable and she captured many candid moments of us that I love to look back on.

Soft & Romantic Outdoor Wedding at Seven Springs: Lindsey & Jon

There never was an outdoor wedding more beautiful than this one.  Lindsey and John choose to celebrate their union at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in a gorgeous al fresco setting.  After a ceremony surrounded by trees, the newlyweds headed to the tented reception space.  And I'm telling you what – I've never seen a tent look quite this good before.  String bistro lights provided a romantic glow while gold chiavari chairs and a combination of elevated arrangements of hydrangeas, roses, and fresh greenery along with candelabras greeted guests at the mix of long and round tables.  A girly color palette of blush pink, rose gold, and champagne made the look soft and glamorous all at the same time.  Adding to the feminine vibe was Lindsey's all lace off-the-shoulder Allure wedding dress from Bridal Beginning and bridesmaids clad in mismatched perfection.  Overall, this wedding was light, airy, and will definitely make your heart skip a beat!  Enjoy the coverage from Oakwood Photo + Video!

From the bride…

Tell me about yourselves!  When and how did you meet?  How long have you been together?  How did you get engaged?  All the juicy details!

Jon and I met back in 2014.  Jon was out with some friends watching The World Cup and I was out with some friends heading to a baseball game.  We exchanged numbers that day but only communicated with a few text messages over the next few weeks.  It was not until Jon happened to be watching the news one morning and saw an interview that I did for Make-A-Wish (where I worked at the time) that he decided to ask me out.  And the rest is history!

The proposal was a complete surprise to me.  Jon and I love to travel together – it's our favorite thing to do.  So many of our friends and family expected that every trip we went on would be the one when he proposed.  And because of that, I never thought he would propose on a trip.  I had the entire day planned with adventures for us (or so I thought).  We started out on a hike to see some waterfalls and decided to hike to find a beautiful alpine lake.  It was a very secluded and peaceful spot.  There, on a rock jetting out into the lake, Jon got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.  It was such a special day and could not have been more perfect!

Describe the wedding and what inspired it.  What was unique about it?

Our wedding was romantic and classic.  The color palette was blush, rose, and gold.  The bridesmaids wore a variety of dresses in rose gold, blush, champagne, and rose – all different styles.  The floral look was very soft and classic – a variety of blush colored roses accented with white hydrangeas.  The tables were set with gold vases, candelabras, and a variety of votives.  Our florist did a tremendous job and created the perfect glamorous and classic look for our wedding!

What was your favorite moment of the day?

The entire day was beyond perfect.  There were so many moments that we will remember forever.  Our favorite moment of the day was our first look.  It was such a special moment that was just between Jon and me.  We will cherish that moment for the rest of our lives.

Is there any advice you would give to other couples planning their big day?

Enjoy every single moment of every single day leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day.  There are so many joyous occasions shared with all of the people that you love – the engagement itself, engagement party, wedding shower, bachelor/bachelorette parties, rehearsal, etc.  It all goes by so quickly.  Cherish and enjoy every moment.  Take the time to look around and soak it all in as much as you can.  And remember that things will go wrong, but don't get caught up in those details – most people will never even notice.  Nothing is perfect, but your day will be perfect for you!

Blue Beach Inspired Wedding at Phipps Conservatory: Ashley & Rory

When you can't take your wedding to the beach, you bring the beach to your wedding.  Ashley and Rory wanted a sun-and-surf vibe for their big day, but they didn't want a destination affair.  They settled for the next best thing – an outdoor ceremony, a dreamy mix of oceanic details, and a party in the tropical gardens of Phipps Conservatory.  There was no shortage of beach inspiration either.  From the watercolor invitations to the ombre blue bridesmaids dresses, the colors of water were out in full force.  Other nods to island life included escort cards set in a bed of sand, fresh palm leaves, cascading orchids, and even golden pineapples that doubled as centerpieces.  With hand-lettered sea glass seating cards, signature drinks named after a sailor and a siren, and even a painted wedding cake featuring starfish and shells, Ashley and Rory's wedding is about as close as you can get to the beach without actually being there.  If you need a vacation as much as I do, you'll enjoy this virtual escape beautifully captured by Leeann Marie, Wedding Photographers!

From the bride…

When and how did you two meet?  How long have you been together?  How did you get engaged?  All the juicy details!

Rory and I met in college through a mutual friend.  His proposal was a thoughtful and fun scavenger hunt.  I had been away for the weekend and when I returned home, I found a note on the door, saying that Rory had planned a surprise for our anniversary. He set up a scavenger hunt throughout our house.  Each clue held a special memory like my favorite flowers, movie ticket stubs from our first date, and take-out from the first restaurant we went to.  The clues eventually led to Rory down on one knee and the best surprise!

Describe the look, theme, style, and colors of the wedding.  What inspired it?  What was unique about it?

Rory and I are total beach people and we love to travel together.  We were torn between having a beach destination wedding or a hometown wedding.  We knew it was important to have our friends and family around and we wanted to show off the city we love.  So we decided to bring the beach to the Burgh!  Phipps Conservatory was a perfect backdrop to make our beachy dream wedding a reality.  Phipps has so much character and history and the tropical forest really makes you feel transported to a island wedding.  I was so inspired by the ocean and this was seen throughout the day – from the mix-and-match blue bridesmaids dresses to the watercolor programs and place cards.  I loved adding in personal touches throughout the day.  Our signature drinks were inspired by our first date, where I wore a mermaid costume and Rory was dressed as a sailor.  Instead of doing a traditional head table, we split the bridal party between two kings tables set with a palm runner and gold pineapple centerpieces.  The head tables had sea glass place cards for each guest.  The mix of high and low palm and orchid centerpieces really popped against the white draping and ocean blue uplighting.

What was your favorite moment of the day?

Our first look in Mellon Park's Walled Garden was absolutely magical.  The light and the flowers in bloom were so perfect; I really felt like I was walking through a fairytale.  The excitement walking up to Rory is something I will never forget.  After the ceremony, we had a few minutes inside the reception space before guests entered and I just had to twirl around and take it all in!

Is there any advice you would give to other couples planning their big day?

Make time for the things that are most important to you as a couple and try not to stress about the little things.  We planned a timeline that allowed plenty of time for things like pictures and traveling and we tried to make the day convenient and fun for us and our guests!  The day goes so fast but I truly felt like I got to enjoy every part of the day instead of feeling rushed and flustered.

From the bride…

We wanted our engagement photos to be a preview for our black tie wedding in September.  The venues chosen provide dramatic settings for a more serious and sensual photo shoot.  My dress was daring yet glamorous, and Cody's suit was classic and sophisticated.  The shoot really brought out the our diverse personalities and style.

Maria was absolutely amazing to shoot with!  Although some of the poses were instructed, she let us truly be ourselves and you can see that in our photos.  Cody made sure to make me laugh during a few of the more serious shots, which resulted in plenty of fun candid moments.  We both love dressing up, and genuinely had a blast in each other's company.

Bold & Colorful Wedding at the Gardens of Stonebridge: Nichole & Arnold

With it's subtle literary theme, an eclectic mix of styles, and a whole lot of personality, Nichole and Arnold's colorful wedding at the Gardens of Stonebridge is one worth seeing.  The outdoor, summer affair was inspired by “The Secret Garden”, with roses, keys, ivy, and quotes from the novel taking center stage in many of the decor elements.  A myriad of pieces from Vintage Alley Rentals, including fun vignettes, antique teacups and saucers, and a sweetheart table fit for a king and queen, added to the whimsical ambiance.  However, an ombre effect courtesy of the bridesmaids dresses in varying shades of red and a troop of groomsmen in dress blues added a few bold touches to the day.  In honor of Arnold's heritage, many Bolivian traditions made an appearance.  Artisanal favor boxes made from orange and grapefruit peels plus two folkloric dances (complete with costume!) were my personal faves.  Nichole had her own tribute with a veil and bridal belt she helped to design during a trip to Bolivia.  These two seem like the sweetest couple and I'm so happy to share their heartfelt, inspirational wedding with all of you.  Enjoy these photos captured by Kendelhardt Photography.

From the bride…

When and how did you two meet?

Arnold and I met at Seviche in downtown Pittsburgh on July 10, 2014 at a Latin Dance Night.  When I accidentally bumped into his chair, we started talking.  I tried to impress him with my Spanish and he tried to impress me with his bachata skills.  Through conversation, we realized that we were living only a block away from each other in Sewickley!  We danced the night away and have been together ever since!  Oh, and of course our first dance at our wedding was a bachata. 🙂

Juicy details on the proposal, please!  Where, when, how?

In April of 2015, Arnold purchased a house in Pittsburgh.  He insisted on moving in the very next day and told me to invite all of our friends and family over for a picnic after the move.  I thought it was a bit rushed for a housewarming party, but invited everyone anyway.  It was a crazy busy day and I rushed home at the very last minute to get ready for the party.  When I got back, his parents, who were visiting from D.C., had a huge spread of Bolivian food ready to go.  Before we ate, Arnold started talking on and on, and I couldn't figure out where he was going with it.  He then asked my grandfather to say a prayer, but afterwards, he started talking again.  This time I knew where he was going.  When he asked me to marry him, I said, “A thousand times yes!”  Little did I know, that when he had first been talking, he was giving a signal to his mom to get the ring, which was in her purse.  However, in the midst of the move she had misplaced her purse and couldn't find it for a few minutes.  I don't know how I missed all that was going on behind the scenes, but I couldn't have been more present when he got down on one knee in front of our family and friends, declared the most beautiful words of his love for me, and asked me to be his wife…with the most gorgeous oval ring, I might add!

Describe the wedding and what inspired it.  What was unique about it?

The theme of our wedding was based on the novel “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett.  We both love the story and built the decor for the reception around quotes from the novel, which we had displayed in English and Spanish around the reception.  We wanted our day to have a whimsical feel.  There's something absolutely magical about the Gardens of Stonebridge and our vision was even further brought to life by the breathtaking stylings of Trish from Vintage Alley Rentals.  The escort cards were tags with a key attached, a symbol of the novel, and each centerpiece was different.  I spent a long time collecting vintage and new items to match the theme and each table had its own unique vignette.  We had the most gorgeous roses, an important symbol in the novel, and touches of ivy in the reception decor as well.

Arnold is Bolivian and we wanted to pay homage to his beautiful culture through bold color choices. Each bridesmaid in our bridal party wore a different dress (they picked their own style!) but in red, coral, and blush shades.  The variety of color went perfectly with the bold colors in our church and were so stunning against the backdrop of green at the Gardens of Stonebridge.

My personal tribute to Bolivia was my to-die-for 13 foot, lace bordered cathedral veil and custom belt that I helped to design on a trip we had taken to Bolivia.  We got married in the church my grandmother grew up in when she was young and it is now our church as well.  Arnold wore his army uniform and so did his groomsmen, who are or were also in the Army.  We had many details that paid respect to the military, such as the ceremony table for the fallen soldier, and even a little army tank filled with flowers at our sweetheart table!

Arnold's cousins and friends performed the most amazing Bolivian folkloric dances at our reception. Everyone loved it and it was such an incredible experience to see both of our families coming together to enjoy and appreciate one another.

What was your favorite moment of the day?

One of my absolute favorite moments of the day was the time we shared alone (just us and the photographer) shortly after the wedding, taking pictures, laughing, and just reveling in the moment. They were some of the sweetest moments, twirling in my dress, laughing in the pine forest, and sharing the most magical looks into each others' eyes by the lily pads.

Soft Lavender & Gray Wedding at the Pittsburgh Field Club: Jacquelyn & Steve

With a soft lavender and gray color palette, this Pittsburgh Field Club wedding is the epitome of feminine romance.  It was exactly the wedding Jacquelyn had always dreamed of.  Ever since she was a little girl, this self-proclaimed lover of Beauty and the Beast longed for an elegant, soft look for her wedding day.  Thanks to a little design know-how and some fairy tale magic, that's exactly what she got when she married Steve.  Timeless beauty came together in the form of satin table runners, crystal candelabras, soft florals, and ambient lighting.  While the muted purple and gray scheme brought romance to the occasion, silver gave a subtle but sparkly boost.  Look for it in the form of sequin linens, a metallic wedding cake, and even the beaded belts on the bridesmaids dresses.   Even Jacquelyn dressed the park in a beaded sweetheart neck mermaid gown with a full layered skirt.  She accessorized it with a feather clutch and bohemian beaded headpiece at the reception.  The overall look combined classic wedding style with a few modern trends, and Laura Kathleen Photography was lucky enough to capture the whole thing.  If you like soft and airy romance, it's definitely worth checking out!

From the bride…

Tell me about yourselves!  When and how did you meet?  How long have you been together?  How did you get engaged?  All the juicy details!

We met through mutual friends in the South Side on Steve's birthday!  Once we started talking, we realized his mother was my high school gym teacher….Pittsburgh is such a small world!!

We got engaged a year and a half later on December 23, 2015!  He had planned a pre-Christmas dinner for him and me at Il Pizzaiolo in Market Square!  I was running late from work and tried to get ready as fast as I could, as he patiently reminded me of our reservations.  Once in Market Square, he suggested we take a photo in front of the tree and ice skating ring.  After the photo, he pulled me in for a kiss and next thing I know, he was down on one knee asking me to marry him!!!  Once we exchanged some celebratory kisses, I recognized voices cheering and shouting our names.  I turned around to see both our families running towards us!!  I was in heaven.  I didn't think it could get any sweeter….then a professional photographer comes out of her disguise.  It was so magical to have all our family present for that moment and even more so having it photographed to relive it forever.

Describe the wedding and what inspired it. What was unique about it?

I have been dreaming of my wedding day since I was a little girl and I always wanted it to be timeless and elegant!  I loved Beauty and the Beast growing up so I think deep down this had something to do with the setting and theme I wanted.  When it came time to plan our wedding, I knew I wanted a romantic setting using only chandeliers and candelabras to light the space!  Once I walked into The Pittsburgh Field Club, I knew that was it.  I actually cried in the ballroom because I could see my wedding there!!  My favorite color is purple and I wanted a soft, elegant look but something that was also eye-catching at the same time.  So I decided to used muted lavender and gray for our colors with a touch of silver.  The rest of the details were a mixture of ideas from myself, my mom, and Pinterest!  I had a wedding planning binder that was my savior through the entire process; it kept me organized and offered additional ideas and wedding hacks!

What was your favorite moment of the day?

Seeing Steve at the altar while my dad walked me down the aisle!  I'm the only girl with three brothers so that was a very special moment for me!

Is there any advice you would give to other couples planning their big day?

A friend advised me to take a look around at dinner while everyone is seated in front of you and to know that they are all there to celebrate you and your spouse.  There's just no feeling in the world like it!

Modern Minimalist Inspired Wedding Styled Shoot

A minimalist inspired wedding doesn't need much to make it beautiful, and the same goes for this styled shoot designed by JPC Event Group and shot by Dawn Derbyshire Photography.  To show off their new up-and-coming event space, Riverfront Weddings, the team put together a look that was simultaneously glamorous and streamlined.  The covered outdoor venue boasts crisp white walls, a ton of natural light, clean lines, and an industrial vibe with views overlooking the Allegheny River.  To bring some color to the space, the stylists choose a palette of steely blues, teals, orange, and mixed metallics for a striking, modern look.  Long tables were surrounded by crystal ghost chairs and adorned with a coordinated mix of linens and tableware.  Hammered bronze flatware and geometric accents brought a glistening touch, while hand lettered marble table numbers and asymmetrical floral arrangements of white orchids and greenery gave a sophisticated feel.  Deep blue glassware and single orange rose buds at place settings were colorful and eye-catching, while the sweetheart table covered in a sparkly sequin linen and flanked by large pedestals was certainly a focal point.  Not only does this styled shoot show off the blank canvas that is Riverfront Weddings, but it's also proof that you don't need much to make a venue absolutely gorgeous.

From the photographer…

To showcase their amazing new event space, Riverfront Weddings in Aspinwall, Jody Wimer and the magical team behind JPC Event Group put together this gorgeous styled shoot.  The Riverfront is a spacious blank canvas for weddings, and the branding for the space inspired the color palette for the shoot, incorporating mixed metallics, shades of blue, and white.  The openness of the building filled the space with gorgeous light, creating a bright, minimalistic look that helped drive the direction of the shoot.  The indoor space along the river, perfect for cocktail hour, was kept minimal, with tall candles accenting the greenery wrapped fireplace.  When walking upstairs into the reception space, long tables created a path to the sweetheart table.  Geometric accents were abundant to help create a modern feel, including a backdrop for the sweetheart table and copper wire cultures displayed on large pedestals flanking the table.  On the reception tables, the floral elements from the sweetheart table were carried throughout the space, mixing in marble accents against the steely blues of the linens, working perfectly with the dark blues of the glassware and bronze flatware.  The floral pieces throughout the space brought the copper tones from the color palette into the primarily white and green pieces with gorgeous roses, and were accented by the orchids wrapping through the arrangements.

For the two bridal looks, there were two different bouquets.  For the chic look with a long, minimalistic high necked dress with ruffle accents, Garnish created a larger, more textured and less structured bouquet.  The fun lace reception dress was aired with a tighter, structured bouquet with minimal greenery and a more modern, streamlined look.

As a photographer, I was so excited to be involved.  I feel like the landscape of the wedding industry in Pittsburgh is shifting, especially when it comes to venues.  While farms, barns, and outdoor spaces still rule, industrial and glam elements are starting to get incorporated into those spaces, and Riverfront is a beautiful meeting of lush nature elements with a modern, clean, minimal industrial feeling space.  The building is a blank canvas, and has so much potential to fit a wide variety of looks for a wedding.  It’s such a unique addition to the venues around the city.

Pastel Antique Inspired Wedding: Kate & Christian

This antique inspired wedding is vintage meets rustic meets shabby chic.  Kate and Christian met while attending college and when it came time to plan their big day, the couple stayed close to home.  Rather than renting a reception venue, the bride's dad's garage was transformed into an soiree-worthy space!  It's incredible!  Just wait until you see it!  A color palette of pink, peach, turquoise, baby blue, and lavender kept things light and bright, while gorgeous antique oil lamps and blown glass vases adorned each table.  But my most favorite detail was the head table backdrop.  Behind Kate and Christian hung a hand-painted tapestry showcasing the bride and groom's initials.  It's just about the most darling thing ever.  To dress up the garage's exposed duct work, the bride and her florist, Julie James Design, dangled rustic wreaths decorated with fresh florals.  It created the cutest whimsical vibe.  Every picture perfect detail of Kate and Christian's charming affair was documented by Jenna Hidinger Photography.  You're really going to love this one!

They met at Grove City College while obtaining their undergraduate degrees!

Describe the wedding and what inspired it?  What was unique about it?

The wedding was absolutely beautiful!  It was an intimate affair on the bride's parents' property.  You'd never guess it, but the reception took place in the father of the bride's garage (which is very fitting, since her dad is the owner of Tom Henry Chevrolet!)!

There were so many unique and personal details incorporated into the wedding day.  We started off at Kate's childhood home, photographing all of the gorgeous bridal details, incorporating an antique family heirloom silver serving tray.  While the ladies were putting on their final touches, Brianna (Matron of Honor) and Kate shared a special moment together – Brianna, who was a few months pregnant at the time, gave Kate a colored garter to reveal the gender of Brianna's baby.  And as you'll see from the photos, it's a boy!  Such an exciting (and precious) moment to witness!

What was your favorite moment of the day?

My favorite moment was definitely the garter reveal.  Such a unique gift to incorporate into the day!
