Allison and Matt were married on September 16th, with a ceremony at St. Ferdinand’s Catholic Church in Cranberry, Pennsylvania, and a reception at Noah’s Event Venue.
I started out the day with Allison as she got ready in her brand new house. She and Matt just moved in a month prior to the wedding, so the house still had that shiny, new, and exciting feeling to it. Once I got there, I was incredibly touched by the fact that Matt had sent flowers ahead to the girls in the morning. All of the bridesmaids got flowers—and Allison got roses. What a sweet gesture!
An Autumn St. Ferdinand’s Catholic Church Ceremony
After the ceremony, which took place at Allison’s childhood church, my second shooter, Loren, and I had plenty of time to take photos. We ended up sticking around the church grounds for all of the pictures, because there were plenty of fall colors to take advantage of to showcase the changing seasons in Pittsburgh, and lots of wide-open space to work with. What more could a photographer ask for?
Family clearly meant the world to these two, and my favorite moments from the whole day involved Allison and Matt’s families. Matt’s niece was the flower girl, and she had the best flower girl dress I have ever seen. I loved watching her spin around in the dress.
A Noah’s Wedding Reception
Allison’s dad also gave a hilarious speech in which he joked about handing over the “responsibility” of Allison to Matt—but you could really tell that he cared about his little girl and was happy to see her with someone who would take care of her.
It was also a new experience for me shooting a reception at Noah’s. It’s a new venue in the Cranberry area, so I had a blast as a photographer exploring the new setting and finding new little gems for the next time I come back here.
Matt & Allison, thank you for asking me to be your wedding photographer. I wish you both nothing but the very best!
