This wedding was awesome and held at two very quintessential Pittsburgh places (well, with the exception of Primanti’s) so we quit jaggin around, red up arr haas in North Carolina, came up to da ‘Burgh and went dahntahn to shoot their wedding n’at yinz guys.

Ashley and Dave both went to the same high school as me, only 4 years earlier, so it was a wedding full of people who went to school with my sister (there were several mistaken identity issues) but whom I vaguely knew from seeing their faces at my sister’s random school functions. So there was a lot of, “Is that…?” and “Are you…?” and “You look familiar…” going on, and a few reunions of people who were my sister’s friends who I tried to usurp for my own friendship back in the day because I was that type of little sister (sorry, Laura). Laura actually set me up for this wedding by reuniting with Ashley when they were both put on a flight to Los Angeles and randomly sat next to each other and Ashley had just gotten engaged. Small world! There was also one past wedding couple (Morgan and Jim!) and one future wedding couple (Julianne and Ian!) at this wedding which was super cool… so we had a great time photographing this wedding as well as hanging out with some really awesome folks.

Ashley was a really excited (and gorgeous!!) bride, but I think Dave’s excitement took the cake, as he was one of the happiest grooms we’ve ever photographed. He made some sort of golf analogy to us at the end of the night that we can’t quite remember, but the gist of it was that his wedding day was, in short, the best day ever. :)
