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!
Here is a preview of the engagement shoot. Now, on to the wedding day!
Nichole's elegant hair and makeup were done by Salon Eye Candy.
Every detail of Nichole's accessories have a sparkle to them.
The bridesmaids are there for the bride and all her little details- from clasping every button to strapping on those sparkling shoes.
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.
Chaz and his groomsmen are ready to make their appearance for the ceremony.
The moments between the father and the bride are so special. They are both preparing for this life-changing moment, but they get to share it together.
Love always radiates from the groom's expression when he finally sees his bride for the first time.
The newly wed Mr. and Mrs. Sztroin finally get to share their first kiss as husband and wife.
Even Chaz and Nichole's adorable dog got to make a special appearance to share a moment with them.
Off to shoot the formal pictures with the bridal party!
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!)
Finally, the bride and groom get to share some private moments together.
This is what love looks like.
The Bridal Party is en route to the reception, held at the Waterworks in Greensburg.
The couple picked a beautiful and classy style for their wedding, using complimentary colors of light pink and gold.
For their guests, the bride and groom chose little boxes filled with decadent chocolates as their favors.
Letters, cards, advice, and love collected for the bride and groom.
Mr. and Mrs. Sztroin enter and the celebration begins!
The lovely monogrammed wedding cake was created by Barton's Bake Shop.
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.
Let the dance party begin! DJ 2nd to None Productions kept the guests dancing all night long.
A wedding isn't complete without the traditional dollar bridal dance and plenty of shots!
A beautiful moment to sum up the wedding of Nichole and Chaz. They shared a truly magical day that I had the honor to capture. Best wishes to you both. May your marriage always be filled with health and happiness.
