What is a better way to celebrate a low key Hawaiian wedding ceremony than having a big party to celebrate? Pretty much nothing. Vicki and Sean are currently living in St. Louis, MO, but since they are from the Pittsburgh area they brought they party here and celebrated with family and friends in style.
I love details and this wedding surely did not disappoint. Have a close look at the bouquets…they are paper. PAPER! I love them so, so much. You can get some of your own from More Paper Than Shoes.
Wasn’t her dress stunning?
The obligatory take-a-picture-of-us-in-the-elevator photo. Seriously, they were so fun.
We didn’t have a whole lot of time for formals, and the rain was looming…but the ones we did get…KILLER.
Sean’s mom is of Filipino decent, so as part of their reception they had a full Filipino blessing ceremony. If you thought those paper flowers were amazing, take a look at the hand made origami crane backdrop for their arbor.
No cocktail hour is complete without a fire dancer. The kids were in awe!
It’s pretty safe to say the reception was epic. There were Polkas and Irish step-dancing, where could you go wrong?
This bride is not only gorgeous, she’s athletic. Last weekend she was inducted in to the Allegheny College Sports Hall of Fame for her efforts on the volleyball court in college. Here she is showing off her moves with her teammates.
Congrats to you Vicki and Sean, thank you for letting me be a part of your day.

This session for an incredibly fun group of friends was simply amazing, except for the rain…lots and lots of rain. Most of them were in from out of town so a reschedule was out of the question, but the rolled with the punches and the result couldn’t have been any better. I was so impressed that they all coordinated, guys included, even though they were only supposed to be in a few shots. Thank you all for being such great sports on a less than ideal day.
How many dogs are going to be in the picture? Four? Challenge accepted! This fun family contacted me to get some special images taken as a Mother’s Day surprise. We were able to get some fun sibling shots and even fit in a mini engagement session for one of the couples. What a great group!
