I was remember waking up on the day of Tayler and Chris’s Wedding, and being so excited to shoot this particular Wedding! Tayler is one of those people who makes you feel like you’ve known her your entire existence. She’s extremely warm, and comforting. When she talks to you, she looks you right in the eyes and her smile makes you instantly feel like you’ve known her for what feels like forever. Through out this journey, she has been such an amazing person to get to know!
When it came time for Tayler and Chris Wedding day we hopped in the car and drove a little over an hour. We arrived at the bride and grooms getting ready location which was at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Pittsburgh.
Tayler and Chris said their I do’s at Shakespeare's Restaurant & Pub in Ellwood City, PA. There Wedding Ceremony was packed with close family and friends. I remember thinking, wow these two really have a lot of support in this room! The venue was jam packed with family from both sides.
Tayler told us how she originally met Chris. She use to work with Chris’s older brother Matt in college. They would always joke about how she would marry his brother some day. Isn’t it funny how life works out sometimes? Your right there, smack dab in the middle of studying for college tests, working your butt off at your job, and just when your not looking…. love comes and finds you. Thats how it always works!
Their Wedding was one of those Weddings that gives you goosebumps all day long. The feeling of that knot in the back of your throat when you swallow, from holding back tears.
Tayler’s Dad was by far one of the sweetest Dad’s I’ve ever met. He tried his hardest to hold back the tears, but they were flowing all day long! As expected, this was the day he was giving his little girl over to another man. Dad’s really are super hero’s! Following Tayler and her Fathers first look together he helped her finish the rest of her getting ready images, but helping her with her Grandmothers watch as well as ring.
Some of our favorite moments from their Wedding Day were the images of Tayler and her Father. We captured candid moments of the two of them throughout the day and if you don’t know these two, their images speak for themselves. You can see in their photographs how strong their bond is.
We have a blast shooting this Shakespeare’s Restaurant Wedding. The venue was beautiful, and the staff was as nice as can be!
