It was one of the hottest days of the year, and they had travelled back to the Weirton/Steubenville area to wed in Amanda’s hometown. She sent to him a brand new watch, and he adoringly showed it off to his groomsmen in the back room of the church. It was finally the day that they had been planning from Baltimore, and the pews were slowly filling with old friends and new.
As familiar faces took their seats, Amanda and Gideon celebrated their own special moment in the quiet room on the side of the church. They reached to the end of the wall, interlocked fingers, and both smiled instantaneously.
As they hold hands through the years, they will remember that moment when they couldn’t see each other, but could touch hands with nervous excitement, laughter, tears, and a whole new world opening before them.

We had a lovely location to shoot their portraits!
Loved the big iron gates at this spot in Steubenville.
Love how happy Gideon is in this photo!
I was infatuated with these blossoms.
A little flare!
They made quite the entrance into the reception venue.

And proud parent dances. Congrats!
