Mike and Leah’s wedding was amazing! They contacted me a few months before their day and I knew instantly we were going to get along just fine! We talked about their day and they had plans to have it at the Hyeholde Restaurant, near Pittsburgh, PA. The wedding party was going to be small, them, the flower girl ( Janelle), and ring bearer( Bryce)! They were hoping for nice weather to have the ceremony outside! I couldn’t wait to shoot their day!
The day came with a slight chance of rain in the evening, but the weather was great! A nice breeze on a warm day! When I got to the Hyeholde, I was so impressed with the look of it! A beautiful building that looked like something from a fairytale! Leah was busy getting ready so I checked in with her then got started on some detail shots! Her dress was GORGEOUS, I was in love with it the moment I saw it!
The ceremony was held outside and it made for a beautiful setting! I loved that they incorporated Leah’s daughter, Janelle, into so much of their wedding, as she is a huge part of their lives together! They even had a special ring for her during the exchange of rings! How cool is that?
I took SO many reception photos, everyone was dancing and having a great time! Especially the kids!
Also, on a side note, Mike’s mother made a huge cookie table! We sampled a few and they were the best! Thank you Lana!
Thank you so much Mike and Leah, we had an amazing time capturing these moments and we hope you love them just as much as you did that day! Congratulations on your beautiful lives together!
