Joni and Jared’s epic wedding day is one we will never forget. Their wedding day was a special one to us because it was also our own wedding anniversary date. And we loved the idea of capturing this wonderful couple’s big day together as we celebrated our 11th anniversary.
Our clients know we love to have a meticulous wedding day plan in place, and we always have a plan B if it looks like rain. For Joni and Jared’s wedding day, there was no escaping the forecast. We were looking at heavy, torrential rain for most of the morning and afternoon – right when Joni and Jared planned to have their first look and bridal party photos taken.
Most couples would have deferred to plan B in a heartbeat, but Joni and Jared, who loved the idea of having their first look in St. Patrick’s Parish courtyard in the Strip District, didn’t let the weather stop them. With everyone sporting umbrellas (including the photography and videography team), Joni met Jared for some of the most beautiful rain photos we’ve ever taken. Joni and Jared were so amazing as the rain literally poured down on all of us – they just enjoyed the moments together (and boy does it show!). We continued photos in Mellon Park with their entire bridal party as well as Maple, their adorable pug, who was dressed in her best florals for the occasion.
Joni and Jared are active members of Saint Mary of the Mount Parish, so many of their close friends took part in their ceremony. Afterward, we headed to the Duquesne Power Center ballroom for dinner and dancing. Thank you, Joni and Jared, for such a beautiful wedding day! Congratulations you guys!!
