“Most people say ‘Where’s the Paige I know and love?’ when I get all dressed up” Paige says to me as she hoists up the bottom of her wedding dress to climb a set of stairs. Paige, Nate, Barry, and I are right outside of The Grand Concourse photographing around Station Square. She goes on to tell me that her usual attire is not fancy but laid back, so wearing a wedding dress was completely out of her norm!
This completely resonates with how I view this couple that we’ve come to know and love. Paige and Nate are a fun-loving and laid back couple, who had a leaf throwing fight during their engagement session, and who dressed their bridal party up in naval hats and sunglasses for their wedding pictures! Paige is also a soccer player, and she kicked around the soccer ball in her wedding dress on Duquesne’s field (Paige and Nate met at Duquesne University!) Not to mention, the interlude during their first dance; Paige is from Cleveland and Nate is from Pittsburgh, so halfway through their first dance, the DJ switches music! Nate and his groomsmen taunt Paige that Pittsburgh is better than Cleveland (think Black and Yellow!) and Paige and her bridesmaids taunt Nate with the vice versa! It was honestly hysterical to watch!
The entire day was so relaxed and fun- take a look to see what I mean…
