A wedding day means different things to different couples. Some couples are anticipating walking down the aisle, some are focused on tiny details, and others are so excited to celebrate (and feel relief) at their wedding reception. Kristen and Daniel were excited about their very personal wedding ceremony. They both work for churches and their wedding ceremony was performed by one of Daniel’s closest friends. But they also really enjoyed dancing all night at their wedding reception!

Kristen and Daniel were married at Trinity Cathedral in downtown Pittsburgh. Prior to the ceremony, Kristen requested a popular wedding photo where the bride and groom each stand on the side of an open door. They are unable to see each other, but they can hold hands and share a few words. Kristen’s expression while sneaking past the groom’s room and out to the open door yielded one of my favorite photos of the day! While it was a staged moment, Kristen and Daniel were quite emotional.

After their very personal ceremony, Kristen and Daniel ran through thier bubble exit and off to the Heinz History Center for their wedding reception. We paused for some wedding portraits behind the Heinz History Center before they made their grand entrance into the ballroom. Guests enjoyed dinner from Common Plea and beautiful decor by Hens and Chicks. Once the party started, Three Rivers Entertainment: In the Mood kept the guests dancing all night long! I was pleased to be joined by photographer Sean Means and the cinematography crew from Evermark Studios.

Congratulations, Kristen and Daniel! It was an honor to watch you truly enjoy your wedding day!

You know you are at a wedding planner’s wedding when one of the first things you hear the bride say is “I’m not using to being on this side of things. Where’s my clipboard and my watch?” That’s right! A few weeks ago, Nicki and I were honored to be Ashley and Justin’s wedding photographer. I’ve worked with Ashley and her event planning company, Hello Productions, over the last four years and I was excited when she contacted me to be her wedding photographer.

Ashley and Justin were married in a ceremony at St. Mary of the Assumption Parish in Glenshaw, Pennsylvania. They were both eager to celebrate with their guests at their wedding reception at Heinz Field . Justin was excited to celebrate at the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Ashley also thought it was a super cool event space with a great view of the city. While we were on our way to take photos on the field, Justin said that “The two best things in my life are together in one day!” I’m confident that he was talking about Ashley and football.

They were introduced into their reception with a performance of “Renegade” by their wedding band, Jeff Jimmerson & Airborne. Anyone who has been to a Steelers game will know just how exciting this moment can be! Allison McGeary provided the beautiful flowers and Hello Productions took care of all of the tiny details.

Nicki and I were thrilled to be with Ashley and Justin to capture all of the best moments of their wedding day. At the end of the reception, I agreed when Nicki remarked “It was great to see them having as good of a time at their wedding as all of their guests!” I agree! While we usually see Ashley working at weddings, it was great to see Ashley as a bride, enjoying her wedding day.

Congratulations, Ashley and Justin!

Maria and Brian’s wedding guests really had a great time taking photos in their ShotBox studio. Everyone enjoyed trying out all of the crazy props and making silly faces. In some of my favorite photos, Maria and Brian brought their University of Pittsburgh/Penn State rivalry to life. Enjoy!

Maria and Brian are very kind and thoughtful people. I was a benefactor of their thoughtfulness last fall at their engagement photo shoot. Since I was expecting my first baby at the time, they brought a gift for my little one. At their wedding, it was clear how much thought, effort and planning went into making a great wedding for their guests to enjoy. The gifts for their bridal party were perfectly selected, they were always making sure everyone was comfortable, and everywhere you turned, there was a basket of things you didn’t know that you needed.

Maria and Brian were married in a Catholic ceremony at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Parish in the south hills of Pittsburgh. The rainy afternoon hampered our efforts for outdoor photos(at first), but we were able to take a few photos on a covered porch at South Hills Country Club. As their guests entered the ballroom, they were wowed by the gorgeous table decorations from Mocha Rose Floral. After Maria and Brian were introduced into their reception and the Best Man and Maid of Honor shared a toast, Maria and Brian stepped away from their dinner for a few moments to take some photos since the skies cleared. They rejoined their guests from a great meal from the speedy and corteous staff at South Hills Country Club. John Sarkis kept all of the guests entertained with great performances during dinner and the reception.

As we always do, Nicki and I really enjoyed working along side of Megan from Pictory Productions. Maria and her bridesmaids started their day at Posh Salon, but we joined them as Maria was getting into her wedding dress in her childhood home.

It was truly a fantastic wedding and I was honored to be a part of it. Congratulations, Maria and Brian!!

    First off,love the sparklers. The silhouettes look fantastic.Really love the effect.

It’s here! Randi Voss Photography’s first wedding post of 2014! Nicki and I definitely started the year off right with this beautiful and fun wedding. It was our honor to photograph Kendra and Ed’s wedding on March 22, 2014. Kendra and Ed had quite a few wedding planning challenges including finding the perfect venue, locating missing bridesmaids dresses, and contending with unpredictable March weather. Those challenges are all a thing of the past now since Kendra and Ed had a picture perfect wedding day here in Pittsburgh!

Kendra and Ed were determined to have some great outdoor photos, even though their wedding ceremony and reception were both at the same venue. At our first meeting, Kendra asked me if we “could take outdoor photos sometime during the wedding day.” I’m happy to take photos anywhere that time permits on the wedding day. So into their wedding day schedule, they built some time for a First Look  at The University of Pittsburgh and a quick stop at the Duquesne Incline.

After the marathon photo shoot, Kendra and Ed were married by Reverend Mark of A Simple Vow in an intimate ceremony at Jay Verno Studios. Kendra looked amazing in her unbelievably beautiful pinky-peach wedding gown. Her fantastic hair and makeup were done by Mia and Lindsey of Metamorphosis Salon and Day Spa. Guests moved to the adjacent room for cocktail hour before being welcomed into the main event space at Jay Verno Studios.

Guests were treated to some tasty buffet stations including a burger/fries station, Southern food station, and a salad station. This wedding was my first time working with Jen of JPC Event Group who organized and catered the event. The food was both beautiful and delicious! After dinner, Kendra and Ed shared their first dance and celebrated with their wedding guests. Congratulations Kendra and Ed!
