Sara and Mike met in chemistry class during the last week of their freshman year at Saint Vincent College. They had their first date at a Pirates game. I met with them last year near PNC park for their engagement photos. At that time, their wedding seemed so far away…but last Saturday, it was here! They were surrounded by a wonderful group of family and friends for their ceremony at St John Capistran Catholic Church and their reception at Crowne Plaza Hotel Pittsburgh South.
I joined Sara at her parents’ home where she put on her wedding dress. She and her bridesmaids just returned from La Pomoenee.
Nicki was with Mike and his family at the church. He’s getting a last minute kiss from mom.
These next two photos really show the warmth that Sara and Michael wear on their faces for each other.
The church had some beautiful trees nearby, so we made all of the bridal party photos there. Next three photos by Nicki
Favorite from the day! Great job, Nicki!

Once you’ve had a wedding dress (or any dress) with pockets, there is no going back. Sara’s showing off.
After a joy ride in the limo, Sara and Michael arrived at Crowne Plaza Hotel Pittsburgh South.
About 60 seconds into first dance, Nicki said “well, I got everything I need out of this one” as she flashed her LCD screen at me with tons of great looking photos of Sara and Michael smiling and looking SO happy!

The dance floor was PACKED for the last dance!
Congratulations, Sara and Michael! I had a great time photographing your wedding and I hope you have a fantastic honeymoon!
