Can you believe this reception took place at a hockey arena?? Only Marissa & Michael would think of that, and if you didn’t see that big photo you’d never know it.

Marissa & Michael | Married | Sneak Peek!

Capital Theater WV Weddings-ExposureLet me just start off by saying how much I totally dig this couple. So down to earth, so laid back…both of them together, and individually, are just the most awesomest people, ever.

Ok–now that that has been said, let me now say how much FUN we had at this wedding. As I mentioned above, Marrisa & Michael are so laid back and WOW did that make for such an enjoyable day. There was never a moment that I didn’t see a smile plastered on both of their faces and also surrounded by so many close friends and family.

It was a day of never-ending celebration…just the way I like it.

More to come!

Alexandra & Anthony | Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

Omni William Penn Weddings | Pittsburgh-1She hated getting her photo taken, but the camera loves her so much more than she knows. She breezed through the day like she was a pro. She would smile at everyone that came into her path, but you should’ve seen what that same smile looked like when she looked at him. He had a gentleness to him that any woman could appreciate. He guided her through the day with the ease of a man that instinctively puts her first, every time. When she wasn’t next to him, he looked around to see where she was till he found her.

You’ll see all of this in the photos soon to come. For now, you’ll just have to trust me that although this was a huge day and a huge wedding, this couple, their families and their huge gathering of friends made it seem like this was the smallest, most intimate, close-knit gathering you could imagine. So much love all packed into one day…

Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers-14How adorable are these two?? I know I say this a lot about my clients but it’s true! These 2 were so laid back, so fun and just so damn in love. The day went by like a breeze and a fun time was had by all. The champagne glasses overflowed, the dance floor was full all night, and I don’t believe I saw one time that a big fat smile wasn’t planted on both Erika’s and Eric’s faces.

What a sweet day it was!

Brittany & Nick | Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

Omni William Penn Weddings-57Eeeeeeeee!!!!! Today I get to unload some fierce gorgeousness upon you and I couldn’t be more excited! I know you got a teensy taste from my sneak peek, but just feast your eyes upon the beauty of this day.

This day was magical straight from the beginning. As soon as I walked into the suite at the Omni William Penn to begin my day I was made to feel like family. Being a fly on the wall so was so wonderful! Brittany was completely surrounded by friends that had touched all phases of her life and watching her mom and her future mother-in-law share giggles and whispers while drinking champagne in their comfy robes was just adorable. No kidding it was like being at a sorority gathering. At one point, while Brittany was getting her hair styled, all her gal pals gathered around on the floor and plopping down on chairs while they all took turns talking about funny memories they had shared with this gorgeous bride. It was so lovely to just melt right into the walls and listen while capturing some of the sweetest smiles.

And the rest of the day simply followed that line of goodness. The first look was so incredibly romantic and watching the debonair Nick turn to see his future wife all dolled up just for him was an amazing moment. And I will say, Nick was quite the good sport. You could tell he wanted to be absolutely anywhere instead of in front of my camera but he brought his A-game and we zipped through at a good pace so we could get on with all the festivities.

And what a party it was! The tears as they read their self-written vows to each other, the dance floor so full at the reception I had a hard time elbowing my way in so I could capture all the fun. The band played, the guests drank, ate and danced the night away. It was wonderful to see Brittany and Nick out on that dance floor all night too. Lots of times the couple gets a bit caught up in walking around and doesn’t make it to the fun stuff so it was awesome to see them living it up.

And just when you thought it was all winding down, the ballroom doors opened back into the Urban Room for an after party. All I can say is, I hope everyone got a good night’s sleep because they never stopped moving! From one dance floor to the other, the party stayed in high-gear all night long.

Congratulations to this amazing couple! Omni William Penn Weddings-4Omni William Penn Weddings-5Omni William Penn Weddings-6Omni William Penn Weddings-1Omni William Penn Weddings-2Omni William Penn Weddings-3Omni William Penn Weddings-7Omni William Penn Weddings-8Omni William Penn Weddings-9Omni William Penn Weddings-10Omni William Penn Weddings-11Omni William Penn Weddings-12Omni William Penn Weddings-13Omni William Penn Weddings-14Omni William Penn Weddings-16Omni William Penn Weddings-18Omni William Penn Weddings-15Omni William Penn Weddings-19Omni William Penn Weddings-17Omni William Penn Weddings-20Omni William Penn Weddings-21Omni William Penn Weddings-22Omni William Penn Weddings-23Omni William Penn Weddings-26Omni William Penn Weddings-24Omni William Penn Weddings-25Omni William Penn Weddings-27Omni William Penn Weddings-28Omni William Penn Weddings-29Omni William Penn Weddings-30Omni William Penn Weddings-31Omni William Penn Weddings-32Omni William Penn Weddings-33Omni William Penn Weddings-42Omni William Penn Weddings-43Omni William Penn Weddings-44Omni William Penn Weddings-45Omni William Penn Weddings-46Omni William Penn Weddings-47Omni William Penn Weddings-48Omni William Penn Weddings-50Omni William Penn Weddings-49Omni William Penn Weddings-54Omni William Penn Weddings-52Omni William Penn Weddings-51Omni William Penn Weddings-55Omni William Penn Weddings-56Omni William Penn Weddings-58Omni William Penn Weddings-53Omni William Penn Weddings-59Omni William Penn Weddings-61Omni William Penn Weddings-60Omni William Penn Weddings-62Omni William Penn Weddings-63Omni William Penn Weddings-64Omni William Penn Weddings-65Omni William Penn Weddings-66Omni William Penn Weddings-34Omni William Penn Weddings-37Omni William Penn Weddings-35Omni William Penn Weddings-38Omni William Penn Weddings-36Omni William Penn Weddings-39Omni William Penn Weddings-40Omni William Penn Weddings-41Omni William Penn Weddings-67Omni William Penn Weddings-68Omni William Penn Weddings-79Omni William Penn Weddings-82Omni William Penn Weddings-69Omni William Penn Weddings-70Omni William Penn Weddings-81Omni William Penn Weddings-84Omni William Penn Weddings-71Omni William Penn Weddings-76Omni William Penn Weddings-74Omni William Penn Weddings-80Omni William Penn Weddings-75Omni William Penn Weddings-77Omni William Penn Weddings-85Omni William Penn Weddings-78Omni William Penn Weddings-72Omni William Penn Weddings-83Omni William Penn Weddings-86Omni William Penn Weddings-87Omni William Penn Weddings-88Omni William Penn Weddings-89Omni William Penn Weddings-90Omni William Penn Weddings-91Omni William Penn Weddings-92Omni William Penn Weddings-93Omni William Penn Weddings-94Omni William Penn Weddings-95Omni William Penn Weddings-96Omni William Penn Weddings-97Omni William Penn Weddings-98Omni William Penn Weddings-99Omni William Penn Weddings-100Omni William Penn Weddings-101Omni William Penn Weddings-103Omni William Penn Weddings-105Omni William Penn Weddings-106Omni William Penn Weddings-102Omni William Penn Weddings-107Omni William Penn Weddings-108Omni William Penn Weddings-104Omni William Penn Weddings-110Omni William Penn Weddings-109Omni William Penn Weddings-111Omni William Penn Weddings-112Omni William Penn Weddings-113Omni William Penn Weddings-114Omni William Penn Weddings-116Wedding Planner: Shari Zatman
