OLD ECONOMY VILLAGE WEDDING
PITTSBURGH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Dominique and Derek were married on the gorgeous grounds of Old Economy Village in Ambridge, PA. I was so excited when Dominique reached out and told me that they were getting married in the garden. It has been a few years since I was there and I always enjoy going back to venues that I love photographing. I met Dominique and Derek last fall for their engagement session at Sahli Nature park in Chippewa. We had a lot of fun working together!
OLD ECONOMY VILLAGE CEREMONY
The grounds at Old Economy Village are so romantic. While is was super hot the day of their wedding, the garden was perfectly bloomed with the summer flowers and it created a beautiful look for their ceremony. It is the perfect backdrop for the ceremony. What I absolutely loved most about their ceremony was the processional. Dominique is close with both her Dad and her Step-Dad and so they both walked her down the aisle.
OLD ECONOMY VILLAGE WEDDING PICTURES
The benefit of having your wedding ceremony at Old Economy is the ability to use the grounds for wedding pictures! While the area isn’t entirely spacious, there is so much variety in and around the garden for beautiful wedding portraits.
WEDDING RECEPTION AT THE FEZ
Following the ceremony, Dominique and Derek’s guests enjoyed an evening at the Fez in Hopewell. Their reception was a blast! What I love best about a wedding reception at the Fez, is their massive spot light that they bring out for the first dances. Back lit images are very much my style so having the ability to have that inside is just awesome.
SUNSET WEDDING PORTRAITS
When the weather allows for it, I always get my couples outside for a few sunset photos. The Fez unfortunately doesn’t have any grassy area or space other than a parking lot outside. Fear not, I can make anythign work when it comes to sunset photos! I found a great spot for the light, placed them (safely) at the edge of the parking lot and we simply waited for cars to pass to get the shots we wanted. It worked out perfectly!
Dominique and Derek, than you SO much for allowing me to be a part of your day. I loved working with you both.
