Alison and Josh’s Wedding in Mill Run, Pennsylvania

Alison and Josh were married last Saturday at Grandma’s Gift in Mill Run, Pennsylvania.  Inviting their 40 closest friend and family, they celebrated their nuptials with an outdoor ceremony, a fantastic dinner, and a bonfire.

They chose to see each other before the ceremony with a “First Look.”  They really wanted to attend their cocktail hour, so taking many photos before the ceremony allowed them more time for snacking and socializing……two things that I love to do too.

This place was insanely beautiful.

They were really happy to be getting married.

We went to take some photos by this fence, but the pony was stealing the show.

A little laugh right after the family portrait session.

Alison and Josh had a civil ceremony with music by Aeolian Winds of Pittsburgh.  Josh and his brother, Matt, waiting for Alison to arrive.

Next two photos by Ryan.

Oh the happy couple with all of their guests.  This house in the background was designed by Alison’s dad, who is an architect.

Just a little “angel light.”

The next three photos are taken at the same time, but all use different lighting and exposure techniques.  

After a fantastic dinner by Hazelnut Catering, it was time to change clothes, and relax for the evening.  Handing out glow sticks to children is like handing out money to adults.

I loved the glow sticks (Alison gave me one too)!

Congratulations, Alison and Josh!  What a wonderful way to start your lives together.

    You two do BEAUTIFUL work and you are fun to have around too. But more than the technical part is that you really got the spirit of the day; Josh and Alison’s swelling happiness, the fun we all had and the beautiful setting and changing time of day.

    Our house looks great too. Could I use some of these photos to see if anyone would like to rent it for another wedding?

    randi, the use of light in these pictures is the best i’ve seen at any of your weddings. i guess that’s what’ll happen when the wedding is such an intimate event. beautiful.

    the silhouette is the best i think. ISO up, shutter speed down?

    The pictures are glorious and truly capture the joy of the celebration. I wish you both a long and loving marriage.
