Marybeth and Michael are so incredibly sweet. Such nice, nice people, and every single person at their wedding was exactly the same way. It was an absolutely pleasure to work with them, and so fun to experience their hometown wedding (after their city engagement session!).
They were married in Latrobe (which I never realized was more than just a football field), and their reception was at the always wonderful Chestnut Ridge Golf Course in Blairsville. We always love working there.
The day started off really rainy, so I started brainstorming ideas for where to photograph them inside of Chestnut Ridge (there are actually lots of options there!), but as the time passed the weather cleared. Finally, when we were in our golf carts heading back to the reception from taking photos, the sky became this beautiful watercolor canvas, and we were able to get the most beautiful, graceful, and regal wedding photos on the golf course! Love!
Michael gave each of the guys their own monacle – which was hilarious!

A quick moment during the ceremony:
Look at this beautiful church!
Vows. Marybeth’s grandfather is the officiating priest!
Look how happy they are!
Loved the color of the bridesmaids dresses, and their jewelry too!

This just reminds me of the English countryside:
I had to practically crawl into the stream for this photo. Was hoping I wouldn’t have to say goodbye to any equipment as a result…
Again, regal. Beautiful.
Love how sweet they are!
We really loved the pale watercolors, and Marybeth’s flowers complimented the style beautifully:
A quick kiss before returning to the reception:
Husband and wife!
A first dance, taking advantage of the DJ’s colored lights:
After their dance together, Marybeth’s father gifted her with a handkerchief.
Grandparents. They have been married for over 50 years. This is pure love!!
Time for the dollar dance!
Wave those napkins!
