Photographers Note: A true DIY wedding with the bride not only organizing but making many of the reception details herself. This was my first time shooting at all three of these locations. Thistledown at Seger House is a great Inn. With large rooms the bridal party never felt cramped and the rooms all shot beautifully. Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Ligonier is a minimalists dream come true. With soaring ceilings and open beams its open plan is gorgeous in it's simplistic design. The reception was held at The Barn at Ligonier Valley, which has a really lovely side yard with the Laurel Highlands in the background that makes for lovely photographs.
The Lantern Release was really nice. And produced one of my favorite lantern release photos of all time of a guest releasing a lantern (the last photo in this post).
