An Elegant Wedding on the Allegheny River
This wedding was so special to me for so many reasons. First of all, this was the first wedding that my husband, Aaron, was able to join me…and it was so wonderful to not only have his help but to also have him by my side. I think of him often as I capture couples exchanging their wedding vows, embracing each other with such joy, and sharing in the emotion of their first dance…just wishing he could be there to experience it with me. So to have him there on such a special day was truly a blessing. Then to add to the day, this bride has such a very special place in my heart. I met Josie about five years ago as we were both just finding a new beginning. She was walking into ministry as a youth pastor and we were finding a new church home, and thankfully it happened to be at the same place! I remember watching Josie, and to me it was very obvious that there was something special about her. I remember thinking to myself, I HAVE to get to know that woman. Little did I know that she would become like family and that we would all grow to love her so very much. It was surreal to watch her walk down the aisle and become a wife herself! She loves the Lord and that has been obvious since the day we met her.
Another great part of the day was Zach’s sister Molly is also one of my sweet brides from a little over a year ago! Being able to celebrate with both Molly and Tyler and their entire family was just the icing on the cake. So many of our special people together, on the most beautiful day, to celebrate Josie and Zach…truly everything combined to make it a day that I will never forget.
Zach, you are one lucky guy! God has given you such an amazing woman to stand by your side, and we are so happy for you both! Your heart loves deep and your devotion to friends and family is strong. I couldn’t imagine a better person for Josie to spend her life with. Thank you for being a huge part of our lives and for being such an incredible man of God. Josie, I love you so much, and capturing your wedding day was such an honor. You were radiant, and I can’t wait for you to relive your day through these images!!!! Aaron and I are so blessed to have you both in our life! We thank God for you and are praying that this new season is full of so much joy for you two! Enjoy your cruise, enjoy living in your new HOUSE together, enjoy not having to say goodbye at the end of the night, and enjoy fully living life with your best friend!
