Saturday was a beautiful day for Tatiana and Marc‘s wedding. They grew up just a few blocks away from each other, but didn’t start dating until they were in college. After flirting in class (to no surprise of their friends), they finally got together. I was honored to photograph their wedding in the South Hills of Pittsburgh at St Sylvster Parish in Brentwood.
First, I joined Tatiana and her bridesmaids while they were getting ready.
Tatia’s dress was really really big, and she is a small lady.
Due to some really excellent wedding day planning by Tatia and her mom, the ladies were all ready in plenty of time to make some photos. This was great since we had a limited amount of time between the ceremony and reception.
I took this photo at the request of Tatia’s mom, Laura. When the girls were children, there is a similar photo of them from another wedding. They are just as adorable now.
Ryan joined Marc and his groomsmen as well. Nice work with that off-camera light, Ryan.
The wedding ceremony was held at St Sylvester Parish in the Brentwood area of Pittsburgh. This was my first time at St Sylvester Parish, and it was wonderful to work there. Marc was little nervous before the service.
Nat was super happy (and emotional) taking Tatia down the aisle.
Some love for Dad during the Sign of Peace.
When they came out of the church after the receiving line, Tatia’s mom threw rice at the couple. Obviously, Tatia and Marc were surprised and shocked! Sorry guys, I thought it was a hilarious moment that you couldn’t forget. You probably found rice in your clothes and hair, but at least you’ll have good luck.
Our photo spot was the pond in Jefferson Regional Memorial.We had some great lighting for these photos too!
Ryan grabbed this photo while Tatia was walking to the limousine. Nice catch!
They had a hilarious, good-spirited cake fight during the reception.
Next three first dance photos by Ryan. Tatia and Marc were so adorable!
Their bridal party, parents, and grandparents joined them for a dance.
Then the real party started! Here is (sister) Sonja and her main squeeze.
This bridal party was so excited to be there celebrating with Tatiana and Marc. We always love to see a dancing bridal party, especially groomsmen!!
Congratulations, Tatia and Marc!!! Have a great time on your honeymoon!
