The Wedding of Nichole and Chaz

6 ~ 13 ~ 15

The wedding between Nichole Anderson and Chaz Sztroin was truly a "Sweethearts" wedding. The couple dated since high school and decided to tie the knot many years later. The wedding had many strong family ties, even their dog made an appearance! The newlyweds shared so many beautiful moments together. Covered in light pink and gold, the details sparkled to make the event even more elegant. It was such a pleasure to shoot this wedding. I had the honor of taking their engagement photos, as well. Enjoy the moments from their big day!

Nichole and Chaz had their wedding ceremony at the Saint Joseph Chapel at Seton Hill University. The old, classic building is beautiful whether captured in color or black & white.

Love always radiates from the groom's expression when he finally sees his bride for the first time.

Monessen Florist provided the elegant bouquets and floral arrangements for the wedding. They were so lovely with white and pink hues, tips sprayed with a gold color to accent the theme of the day. The perfect color combination for an early June wedding.

What's a photoshoot without a goofy picture? It looks like the groomsmen are trying to reenact Dirty Dancing moves. I have to say, they really pulled it off, I'm impressed! (that's not an easy move! I've tried!)

I love that even the cake's center was pink! They didn't miss a single detail with this wedding.

The homemade dessert table provided a taste of everything (A Pittsburgh tradition of course!) The candied peaches stood out uniquely amongst the other sweets.

And now, as husband and wife, Nichole and Chaz come together on the dance floor to share their first dance to "Better" by Tom Baxter.

The dances between the bride and her father and the groom and his mother were very emotional. You could see how much these family members meant to each other. They were beautiful moments to capture.

A wedding isn't complete without the traditional dollar bridal dance and plenty of shots!
