The day started on a mild December afternoon, with MK prepping at her parent’s house, and Tom hanging with the guys not far away. The girls readied themselves with lipstick touchups and last-minute bobby pins. The guys prepared for the day with some Busch pounders in honor of Tom’s late father. As MK’s dress was buttoned her mother and father looked on with pride that their only daughter was getting married, but she assured them with gifts of embroidered handkerchiefs that she would “always be their little girl”. The ceremony at MK’s hometown church solidified she and Tom’s union.
MK and Tom are an extraordinary couple – dedicated to the family and friends that they love, giving, and down-to-earth. On the other hand, they’re go-getters and traveling to Africa on a two week safari for their honeymoon in order to see more of the world together. They love classy and chic, but aren’t afraid to joke about their love of pumpkins or hippos with you. They’re made to be together, and I’m sure they’ll live a life together of cosmopolitan pleasures and ever-so-slightly offbeat jokes.
MK’s wedding dress had a LOT of buttons.
Seriously. A lot of buttons.
What a classic bride!
St. Ferdinand’s Catholic Church in Cranberry:
Exchanging their rings:
Perfect shot of the unity candle. This doesn’t always happen due to the way churches are laid out and where the candle is placed.
Once at Fox Chapel Golf Club we had just a brief amount of time to take advantage of the setting sun…
So, they ran!
Tom – you are a handsome gentleman!
All of the bridesmaids looking absolutely adorable.
Can’t get enough of this one. Classic. Timeless, yet still with a modern feel.
Look how stinkin’ cute they are!
Tom takes care of the greens at the golf club, so we had to shoot on the golf course!
Something totally different to satisfy my creative bug:
MK asked if I added “can drive a golf cart” onto my resume. It’s there! (I speed)
Again, something a little different.
MK’s dad giving a speech at the reception. I loved that the “head table” was really a long table in the middle of the room. It was non-pretentious yet still and elegant way to seat the bridal party.
The golf club has a second, quite large room, where the bar and dancing were located:
Bouquet toss time!
The night finished up with some dancing, and the party was kept going by the (always awesome) Eric Schiemer:
