Congratulations Trisha and Eric! You both looked perfect at your wedding on Saturday. Here are some of my favorites from the day.

Check out Trisha’s cute shoes!

Trisha’s dad beamed all day, so proud and happy for his second daughter to be married. Older sister Shelly, here helping him with his tie, was married a year and a half ago, so the whole family were old pros at this getting ready business.

Trisha’s bouquet featured hydrangeas. There were lots of them everywhere – so pretty for June.

After the ceremony, the bridal party traveled in a decked out limo bus. To my amazement, Trisha managed to stand in the limo while her skilled pit crew of bridesmaids bustled her dress. I thought I’d add a little in-camera radial blur by using a slow shutter speed and spinning the camera. Fun!

Trisha & Eric’s wedding reception was held at the picturesque South Hills Country Club.

Wedding days are always exciting. On Saturday, I had an extra treat: my second shooter for the day was none other than the fun, spirited, talented and tall Randi Voss. Not only is Randi a fabulous photographer, but she’s also a great friend, and I was glad to have the opportunity to work together again. And I definitely appreciated all her help carrying light stands and bags and cameras. We sure bring a lot of stuff, and amazingly, we do use almost all of it.

I love cake photos.

Eric’s brother, Best Man Paul, told a great story from their childhood. That’s their mom in the blue, very amused.

That cake above looked fabulous, but that wasn’t it for desserts. A cookie table, of course. I managed some restraint and only had one, an iced sugar cookie. Delicious!

There was also a dessert table full of beautiful cakes and pies like this one.

“Just the Way You Are” – Billy Joel

Lots of dancing, with music supplied by DJ Les Holliday.

I noticed that the sun was setting over the golf course and suggested to Trisha and Eric that we step outside for a few minutes for a few more portraits. I highly recommend to brides and grooms taking a few minutes to do this! As the night goes on, you’ll feel more relaxed, and in the summer, this beautiful evening light comes late in the evening.

Trisha and Eric – I hope you have a wonderful week in Mexico!
