A beautiful summer day for a joyous wedding.
Congratulations to Jeremy and Melissa.
Reception: Four Seasons Banquet House

Months of planning. Details and lists. Flowers, cake, music, officiant, cookies baked for the cookie table. A lot of work. A lot of love.
Friends and family offering support and cheering the couple on to a happy life together. Relatives travelled from California,Florida, Jersey & North Carolina, Ohio to witness the marriage.
My DIL’s first cousin Matthew married Melissa this evening and I had the honor of being the photographer. Mansions of Fifth was an elegant venue.
Uncle Frank, Aunt Linda and Uncle Donald were the drivers of Uncle Frank’s vintage cars which added a lot to the ambience of the occasion.
A lovely wedding. The rain held off- I had a big golf umbrella with me-
though the clouds looked threatening.
Chas, the shirt PITT shirt vendor, on the corner of Forbes and Bigelow Blvd came to the car window to offer congratulations AND two free PITT T-shirts. And the bride is an alum! Thanks Chas.
Unexpected and fun. Cake decorated by Jordan in the wedding party.
What a perfect day for a celebration. Doreen and Marty chose this wedding date as her grandfather was born on July 4th, 1910. Although he has passed, Doreen’s grandmother was dancing up a storm and enjoying the wedding.
Here they are watching the fireworks being shot from a barge on the river. The reception was at Station Square Sheraton Hotel in Pittsburgh.
The typewriter is a 1941 model.
The typewriter poet, Dylan Laine, creates a custom poem for the bride and groom in 5 minutes or less.
The poems were hung on a rose laden trellis that will be incorporated in a book for Josh and Sara.
I just thought it was the coolest thing I’ve seen at a wedding lately…. so I asked her if it would be okay to blog her and she agreed. Thanks Typewriter Poet.
Here Dylan Laine, Typewriter Poet, jots down a few words to create the poem for the bride and groom.

Groom-to-be Shawn (tomorrow August 8th) bestowed these unique gifts upon his groomsmen at the rehearsal dinner tonight.
Jason, Davide and Jason test them out while Shawn looks on in the intersection of the beams of light.
I felt like we needed a swell of Star Wars Music.
Most unusual and creative groomsmen’s gift I’ve seen.
And with a slow shutter to show the light and movement
