Real Weddings 2010 :: Laura & Jay 07.17.10

We recently went through our 2010 wedding photo albums, and realized we never shared the wedding of Laura & Jay! Nick, the couple's wedding photographer, was kind enough to send a few photos of their wedding over to us. This wedding is definitely too cute not to share! Laura & Jay are such a fun loving couple, and their wedding certainly reflected that. Laura chose purple and lime green for their wedding colors - a perfect combination for their summer time nuptials.

The day started off with on-location hair and makeup for Laura and her bridesmaids by the fabulous ladies of Pretty Hair Salon. Following hair/makeup, the ladies departed for the ceremony via their transportation for the day - an adorable vintage trolley from Lenzner Coach Lines. Their ceremony took place at Laura's family church, the beautiful St. John and Paul Catholic Church in Wexford. Following their "I Do's", Laura & Jay made their grand exit as the new Mr. and Mrs. with a bubble release outside of the church. Luckily, the weather was absolutely perfect on July 17th, and the bubble release made for some great photos!

After a few fun photos in the park, they made their way over to the reception, Twelve Oaks Mansion in Mars. Let me just say that Twelve Oaks is one of my favorite venues to work at in all of Pittsburgh. The mansion sits on top of a beautiful country hillside and evokes the charm of a real Southern mansion (an added bonus for Laura & Jay since the couple now resides in Atlanta, GA). Their reception was filled with many sweet touches that Laura had worked on for quite some time. One of my favorite elements of the entire day was the effort Laura had made to make the little guests feel welcomed. Laura is a kindergarten teacher back in GA, and knows just how important it is to keep the little guests happy (and busy). She put together this kid-friendly activity station, which was a HUGE hit with the under 5 crowd! On top of the kid-friendly activities, Laura & Jay also made a donation to Adopt A Classroom in lieu of guest favors (see photo above). 

We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this couple, as well as their families. It was truly a special day for us, and we couldn't be more happier for this sweet couple. We wish Laura & Jay all the best in the years to come!
