Alex & Ben’s wedding was an especially incredible one for me to document. You see, i grew up with Alex being my next door neighbor. My childhood consisted of many a phone call to her house to see if i could come over and secretly watch Harry Potter (sorry mom!). I remember falling into creeks, playing in the river, and eventually bus rides to high school together.
I’ve known Ben for almost just as long as well! We went to the same private school until i switched to public for high school. I remember playing with stuffed animals in the back seat of our van that took us to school and then eventually bickering over who got to have the front seat back home.
All of this background story is to say that you never know how life is going to play out when your little. I have childhood memories with these two separately and i would have never guessed back then that these two would find each other and spend the rest of their lives together and i’d be there to take the pictures!
This wedding was filled with people i knew. Whether family friends, my life long neighbors that watched me and Alex grow up, high school friends, past clients; it all felt like a giant reunion of a lot of great faces to see and everyone was so happy and excited to spend this beautiful day celebrating Alex & Ben. I can’t explain how special it was to be able to document this day for them.
This wedding was filled with beautiful colors from the bridesmaids’ dresses, the decorations, and amazing flowers. The reception was right on the Allegheny river in Foxburg at the Allegheny Grille. My favorite was that they decorated each table with wedding pictures of family and friends’. Every inch of this day was stunning.
Congratulations Alex & Ben! Thank you so much for choosing me to be apart of your day and i wish you all the happiness in the world.
