Brianna + Eric were married last weekend on a very warm summer day at Oglebay Resort & Conference Center in Wheeling, West Virginia. These two were so cute all day long and were so happy to finally be married.
Brianna and her bridesmaids got ready at their house that they recently purchased and have been renovating. (Does the makeup artist look familiar? That’s my youngest sister, Kristina!)
Brianna’s aunt made all of their stationary for them.
Eric put a nail in this oak tree behind their house so that Brianna could have a shot of her dress hanging on it.
Does the bridesmaid that is second from the right look familiar? That’s my middle sister! Brianna is Maddy’s best friend from middle school. Actually, Brianna was my freshman buddy when I was a senior in high school marching band : ) So crazy how time flies!
Brianna’s Grandma sewed a piece of her twin sister’s dress in Brianna’s wedding dress.
Brianna wore her Mother’s veil.
Brianna’s Mother passed down this ring that was her mother’s. It’s stunning!
Eric got ready and then headed over to the house for the first look.
Brianna + Eric adopted their black lab, Timber, so he got to be a part of their first look. I love that Timber is peeking : )
For only being one year old Timber was very good at looking at the camera when his name was called.
Brianna also wanted to do a little first look with her dad.
Since Brianna + Eric did a first look we had time to head to Oglebay before the ceremony and take portraits.
Look at that view!
Brianna said she passes this spot every day and thought it would be perfect for the bridal party pictures. I agree!
Time to get these two married!
Benjamin was sweet enough to assist me at the wedding and carry all my gear. He got this great shot of Brianna’s grand entrance.
They put a bottle of wine, two glasses and notes for each other inside of this box that Eric made. They both nailed it shut and will open it on their 5 year anniversary. Such a sweet idea and a cool little time capsule.
First kiss as Mr. and Mrs.!
Brianna + Eric had such a special moment after the ceremony where they both realized they were finally married. These are the moments that make me love my job even more then I already do.
We had some extra time after the ceremony so we shot some more bridal party portraits.
I really love this bridal party shot.
Ben and I walked around Oglebay with Brianna + Eric and found so many beautiful spots for their portraits.
Love this shot! So classic!
Then we all headed over to River City to enjoy the air conditioning and celebrate!
I love Pittsburgh weddings, not only because I get to visit home, but for the cookie tables!! Brianna + Eric also made the wood cutout of West Virginia that all of their guests signed.
I love a good cake smash as a photographer! Ben was not allowed to do that to me as a bride.
Then the dancing began! And boy did everyone dance!
This little guy danced so much that he lost a shoe! haha
Congratulations Brianna + Eric! Ben and I are so happy for the two of you and were honored to capture your wedding day for you. We love you and cannot wait to see what the future has for you : )
