Sara and Mike | Perfect Summer Wedding In Pittsburgh

“Together they stand on the hill telling each other stories and feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs.
And that, my friends, is how it is with love.
Let us all be Dinosaurs and Lovely Other Dinosaurs together.
For the sun is warm.
And the world is a beautiful place.”
-from A Lovely Love Story by Edward Monkton

This is Sara and Mike.  Do you know who’s really cool?  Sara and Mike.  They also are really fun to hang out with and incredible hosts.  And they’re pretty darn good dancers too.  Oh, and apparently really patient, since this blog post is pretty seriously delayed and I haven’t gotten any scary ticking packages in the mail yet.  And since I’m talking about how awesome Sara and Mike are, let me also tell you about how awesome their wedding was.  Some people have a special gift for seeing the essence of things, and not getting distracted by all the ephemera that fills our world.  Sara and Mike have that gift.  Their wedding day was relaxed and beautiful and fun. Take a look and see for yourself.

And that’s just a small sampling of photos from their beautiful day.  If you’d like to see more pictures, be sure to play the slideshow below.



And that, dear internet, is how the coolest couple in the world has the funnest wedding in the world.  Also, now that you’ve looked at all the photos and the slideshow, you really should take a minute and look up the rest of that poem from the top of the page.  It’s really cool. And I’d like to say thankyouverymuch to Sara and Mike for being so awesome and giving me such a fun tour of your city.  You guys really are amazing hosts, and I’m so glad you chose to have me be a part of your amazing day.
