Ronnie & Dan's Edgewood Country Club Wedding
At Ronnie and Dan's beautiful wedding, I got a mix of everything - gorgeous indoors, a majestic cityscape, and lush green fields. It was a pure joy for me to photograph their wedding and turn their special day into forever memories. My couple had a sweet wedding ceremony at St. Mary of the Mount Church and an elegant reception at the Edgewood Country Club, Pittsburgh. It was an amazing day, and I had so much fun with my couple and their incredible guests. One of the most special parts of this wedding was the love and support that my couple was surrounded by. Their incredible family and friends made the whole experience even more special.

Ronnie and Dan had first met while working at Smokin' Joe's in Southside. Presently, Ronnie is a NICU Nurse at Children's Hospital, and Dan works at a finance company. They both are very laid back and believe in enjoying every moment of their lives. So obviously, their top priority on their wedding day was to have fun with all of their friends and family, and that's what they did! Just like the couple, even one of my favorite moments from the wedding was also when they were hanging out with their best friends and scream-singing to their favorite songs on the party bus.
On the morning of the wedding, I began by taking some detail shots and then pictures of Ronnie relaxing with her gang of girls before she started getting ready. I also took some stunning portraits of Ronnie against the large windows that faced the skyline. My bride wore sapphire earrings that Dan had gifted her. Sapphire being Dan's birthstone, I thought this was such an intimate and romantic act they both shared on their wedding day. When I asked Ronnie for one piece of advice that she'd give to all future brides, she shared, "Expect that there will be one thing that will go wrong. And realize that there's a large possibility that only you and your significant other will notice. And don't forget to bring an invitation/save the date for pictures."
After the ceremony, I got some great couple portraits and also family photos at the gorgeous St. Mary of the Mount Church. We then moved to Edgewood Country Club for the reception. Before we went indoors, I photographed the newlyweds in the beautiful green fields. Ronnie even put on her customized monogrammed denim jacket for the pictures! I loved how everything from the ceremony decor and the wedding party dresses to the reception arrangements was color-coordinated and in sync with the wedding theme. Clearly, Ronnie and Dan have fantastic taste and spent a lot of time planning even the smallest detail.
Keeping the COVID pandemic in mind, my couple offered sanitizers and hygiene boxes to their guests. The speeches at the reception were heartfelt, the traditional dances were emotional, and the cake was scrumptious. Since Ronnie and Dan both love jamming out to the oldies, they incorporated a Rock & Roll theme into their wedding too. And naturally, everyone on the dance floor went crazy over the music!
