The Wedding of Christy and Tyler 

4 - 25 - 15  

 

Christy and Tyler came to me about a year before their wedding to talk about the details of their day. They were so excited about the wedding, in fact when I asked them their goal of the wedding day their answer was "Fun, dancing, booze, food, and did we mention FUN?" My first cousin was a bridesmaid in the wedding, which is how I was introduced to Christy (Thanks Nikki!) I knew from the start it would be quite a fabulous party... and oh, it was! Check out some of their details and special moments!

No wedding is complete without the special detail of the bride's shoes!

Make that two pairs of shoes! The Chuck Taylors were specially made to match the wedding colors and had the words "Mrs. Malone" stitched into the sides.

They aren't the only ones preparing themselves for the long walk down the aisle.

Family was a major part of this wedding, with the bride's sister as the Matron of Honor and the groom's brother as the Best Man.

The church had a full house, with 50% of the guests coming from out of town.

The floral arrangements done by Kim at Dragonfly Florist enhanced the navy and coral themed wedding. The plaid elements added to the preppy and fun style that defined the couple's personalities.

The newlyweds finally had some time for just the two of them. They were glowing together.

The couple chose the Pittsburgh Field Club as their venue because the groom has been a member there since 1989.

The Oakmont Bakery did a fabulous job with the wedding cake and assorted cupcake tier!

Not only were the assorted cupcakes nontraditional, but the cake topper itself was a unique portrayal of the couple's relationship. Who are always up for a loving high-five!

The party favors were mini jars filled with a varied assortment of candies.

Around 6:15 pm the couple made their way to the dance floor and shared their first dance to the song "Forever" by Ben Harper.

It's always so exciting to capture the expressions during the fundamental moments of the wedding, like the entrance and the first dance, and cutting the cake, of course! To compliment the moment of the cake-cutting the DJ played "Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leopard.

Christy and Tyler wanted the wedding reception to be a party, so they made sure people had the footwear to dance all night long.

Christy had an ever-changing wedding dress! For the beginning of the wedding she had her train out, then for pictures bustled the back while wearing her heels. For the dance party she broke out the Chuck Taylors and bustled the front of the dress to create a high-low look to show them off.

Mr. Malone was surprised and impressed by the "Mrs. Malone" personalized Chucks!

What's a wedding without the entertaining garter toss. The man who caught the garter and the woman who caught the bouquet turned out to be a couple already, what are the odds?! Maybe this is a sign for their future...

It was "Call Me Maybe"! Of course! 

Everyone had a great time rocking out to the music provided by Jeremy Ganss Productions

At the end of the night the guys gathered on the deck to indulge in the "Cigar Bar." This was something that Tyler specifically wanted. It was so popular they ran out of cigars!

It was a pleasure to shoot this special day for you! Sincerely, Autumn and Bill Stankay
