Lots of gatherings documented throughout the course of a year and a few from years ago.
The group photos pose a challenge, getting everyone with you simultaneously. I’ve included some more candid shots.
The wedding party is walking towards St. Mark’s Square in the Upper Town, Zagreb.
The building on the right is the Museum of Broken Relationships.
You’ve seen her featured on the blog if you’re a follower.
This blog sends lots of love from your MIL on your special day! Erika is a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, friend and DIL and a beautiful person, inside and out. She ‘s really good to me and I’m so fortunate. That whole “in-law relationship” can be tricky, eh Erika? I try to be a good one, too.
(You watch, she’s going to let me know that Henry and Josie, the Airedales, would have liked their photos on the blog today, too!)
A first peek at some of the highlights of Jarrod and Lauren’s Wedding. The weather was cooperative in that the summer thunderstorm didn’t start until they were safely inside the reception. Perfect timing!
Two caricaturists captured the guests happy expressions. The bride had her caricature done by Jeffrey D. Harris at a festival in 2007 or 8 and tracked him down for her wedding. He was assisted by Dave. The bride and groom put their likeness in a frame and all the guests signed the surrounding mat.
Pittsburgh weddings delight in their cookie tables and Jarrod and Lauren’s was something to see! (and delicious to taste)
The bride’s attention to detail was evident throughout the day. A lovely wedding. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. James.

Their two dogs are important to them although they didn’t attend the wedding they were featured in the cake topper silhouette.
Working together to get the wedding cake’s first piece out and onto a plate. It’s more difficult than it looks!

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.
