The Alcorns | Ashley + Carl | Fells United Methodist Church + The Event Center at Waterworks Wedding | Pittsburgh, PA

Ashley + Carl were one of the sweetest couples I have ever had the pleasure of meeting in my years of photography. I love the soft romantic details throughout their wedding, and meaningful moments! I have also never been so emotionally moved by a wedding so many times-and many many guests as well.

The getting ready was full of love and prayer, and even a sweet first look, no look. This time gave them some calm before the ceremony as they read each other’s letters, had some time to hold hands, and even a private prayer. Carl had the absolute touching groom reactions I have ever seen when he saw Ashley walking down the aisle. Once the ceremony concluded, there was a sweet remembrance of her dad by releasing butterflies with their guests. Afterwards we headed over to Round Hill Park in Elizabeth, PA for their bridal portraits. It was an absolutely beautiful day filled with blue skies and clouds. We even had some barnyard friend photobombs! The Event Center at Waterworks is a beautiful and bright reception venue. Their first dance was just beautiful and so very special. Carl wrote and performed an original song he wrote for Ashley prior to the wedding, and they danced their first dance as husband and wife together. Ashley also shared a dance with her mother and invited all girls that had their father’s in attendance up for a very emotional dance-not a dry eye in the whole room, including mine. Such a sweet gesture which was very important to them! Their night consisted of a cheesecake bar in lieu of cake and cupcakes, and my goodness just look how delicious! They even ended the night with a sparkler exit!

Congratulations again to the newlyweds!!
