Calli and Joe | Pittsburgh Field Club Wedding

Walking into Calli’s parents’ house, we were pleasantly surprised to find a relaxed atmosphere, with her family members hanging out and soaking in the scene as Calli and her mother were finishing their final touches of makeup.  As we start photographing Calli’s wedding details, her mother explains to us just how meaningful these details are- so many pieces of their family’s history were present that day: a piece of her grandmother’s wedding dress, her grandmother’s diaper pins, and also the necklace her grandmother wore on her wedding day!  It was so touching to see these pieces preserved and hear how they were passed down for each lady in the family to wear on their wedding day!  Just this scenario is a perfect example of how close Calli and Joe are to their families.  It was so special to watch them all laughing, hugging, dancing, and singing, in celebration of Calli and Joe’s day.  Yes, I said singing! Calli’s sisters performed a SINGING TOAST!  And the groomsmen performed an interpretive dance with streamers.  Folks, these toasts were hard to beat!  So was the wedding day in general! What made the day even more special was that it was held at the beautiful Pittsburgh Field Club, where Joe grew up frequenting with his family.

Take a look to see what I mean…
