I am so thrilled to share the images from this wedding. I absolutely love all the details that included fresh seasonal flowers, masquerade masks, and a homebrew aptly named "Portergeist". The location has to be one of my favorite places I have photographed.......filled with amazing old buildings and stone walkways. It has happens to be the birth place of Henry Clay Frick and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Check out their website if you are looking for a great wedding location. The combination of natural elements and beautiful October weather made for a great day for Angela and Raymond. I am thankful I got the chance to meet them at the wedding of Crystal & Ben Hinton. And also grateful for their trust in me to capture photos of their wedding day..
If you have a moment check out this great wedding blog created by Angela & Ray, documenting their experiences planning a wedding......starting with a fantastic "save the date" video. I have to say an Oktoberfest wedding would have been a good choice too! I also love the story of Angela's engagement ring...... two stones: one from the ring of her late mother, the other stone from the ring of the groom's grandmother......PERFECTION. I am also a beer lover and can appreciate anyone who homebrews. Mad props to you guys for creating a beer for your wedding. I also respect anyone who documents their journey through a blog... thank you for sharing! It's great to see that people can find humor in what can often be such a stressful time. I am certain that you both will always find laughter and love to be the most important parts of a marriage. I wish you many years of happiness.
The red shoes were a perfect choice! I love when bride's have fun with their shoes!

Okay, so check out this cake! Here's the story behind it:
Angela and Ray met while Ray was interning at the architecture firm Angela works at, so the measuring tape and notebook represent the field work they did together. The pizza and beer bottle are the result of how the field work ended. The "Groom Elephant" and "Bride Penguin" represent the results of a "what kind of animal are you quiz" and they are singing karaoke because for awhile most of their dates involved karaoke. There were also origami flowers, which Ray used to make Angela all the time......in fact Ray's first Valentine's gift to Angela was a box full of origami flowers and hearts...... so sweet! All these elements put together make up one amazing cake!
