Nikki and Nate | The Hyeholde Wedding

Nikki and Nate drove from Naples, Florida, to get married in the heart of autumn at one of the most charming and unique venues in Pittsburgh, the Hyeholde.  This small castle is tucked away in a crimson and gold forest, and I felt like we were driving into a magical land as we passed the front gates which, if you look closely, are adorned with medieval artwork.  As a matter of fact, the interior of the entire castle is chock-full of furniture, tapestries, and stained glass that look like they came straight out of a medieval movie.

I remember the first time talking to Nikki on the phone; I knew that we instantly clicked because she told me that she and Nate met and became engaged through their dogs (I love animals!) Nikki first met Nate via pet sitting his dog, and when Nate proposed, he did so by creating two signs: one for each of their dogs to wear.  One sign said “Will you marry my daddy?” and the other sign said “Mommy say yes!”  We got to meet both pups while Nikki was getting ready at her parents’ house, and just adored them!  *Almost* as much as we adored Nikki, Nate, and their families.  You honestly couldn’t know a kinder and more welcoming group of people.  They treated us like family the entire day, and at the end of the night when the wedding was almost over, they sent us home with a warm hug and delicious cupcakes!!!  They even braved the snow flurries that started to come down while we were taking pictures outside (can you imagine being used to Florida weather and then wearing a strapless gown in 30 degree weather?!)  It was worth braving the cold, though!  The leaves and the outdoor scenery at the Hyeholde are second to none.  Take a look to see what I mean…
