Lizz and Derrick's Wedding--5/23/09

Lizz and Derrick's wedding was held at the breathtakingly beautiful Zen Center of Pittsburgh in Sewickley last Saturday. The details were exquisite, and most were chosen and even created by Lizz and her mother. Everything came together so well and reflected Lizz and Derrick's tastes--classy yet fun. Even the weather cooperated! I think the photos will describe it better for you, so I'll leave it at that.

Even the dogs were included:

Lizz's dress reminded me of vintage Vogue.

It was a little bright during the ceremony.

This shot was taken by Jay--way to go babe!

Lizz and Derrick wrote their own vows.

Can't get much prettier than this view.

First moments as Mr. and Mrs.

Lovely blue sky and golden field. Can't beat it.


I think this is my favorite kiss.

Doesn't this look fun?

Lizz's mother cross-stitched the table numbers.

Lizz's sister gave the sweetest toast.

The flower girl was a little doll.

Fans couldn't miss the Penguins' game:

They couldn't get their first dance to themselves.

They had a lively dance floor.

This is Big

OK, so I've already posted twice(!) today, but I just heard this on the news tonight. Obama is going to host the G20 in Pittsburgh this September. That's huge for this city. I'm excited about getting some photos (if not of Obama, at least of some wild protesters who will surely descend upon the city).

I promise my next post will be photography related!

Things like this amuse me

I saw this clip on a blog I read regularly for "inspiration." I like the concept and the music. One of the fun things about traveling is taking those typical "tourist" shots. They may be cliche, but they're also the ones you'll enjoy 20, 50 years down the road (were we really that goofy??).

Speaking of traveling, I am getting so excited about our Big Summer Trip to England and Scotland in June! Yes, that's right folks, stay tuned for some action packed photos and riveting tales of adventure...or maybe just some shots of my sister, brother-in-law, and my adorable nephew.

Also, (Martha you'll appreciate this), I have purchased a nice rain coat for the trip, as I hear it's pretty rainy every day.
