Stephanie & Ryan Wedding Highlights & Slideshow! | Erie PA Wedding Photography

One of the best parts of my job is getting to see SO many different kinds of weddings. I’ve had super formal, super laid back, over-the-top themes, and simple destination weddings. About a year ago, I met with Stephanie and Ryan to discuss the possibility of photographing their wedding. They had met with several other photographers to determine whose style and personality meshed with theirs the most, like most couples do. They proceeded to tell me about their day and how they wanted it captured and I was pretty blown away that they had already so much careful thought into the planning process, even so far out from their big day! Needless to say, they chose me!

The ceremony was held out on the lawn of the Erie Yacht Club overlooking the lake. It’s one of my favorite ceremony spots in town!

Now for some details! The couple knew that they wanted a big formal sit-down dinner with multiple courses and no traditional “events” like the dances, bouquet toss, garter toss, etc. They also knew that they wanted family-style seating. There were two long rows of seating, and I LOVED it! The Yacht Club and Allburn Florist did a FANTASTIC job creating this cozy environment.

Loved this cake created by Cindy of Cindy’s Let them Eat Cake. Do you SEE this cake!? I didn’t try any, but it looked and smelled phenomenal! After dinner and a slideshow (which, to my delight, contained several photos from their engagement session with me!) we raced off to get to the beach before sunset. Stephanie knew that she wanted sunset photos at the beach…but the pressure was on. Sunset was in about 7 minutes…and though we weren’t very far from Presque Isle, I was TERRIFIED we weren’t going to make it! But, alas, we did–as you’ll see by the slew of massively amazing photos below!

I’m a little obsessed with the below image. Joe keeps surprising me with beauties like this one! Way to go, Joe!Ooh and THIS one! A little bit of off-camera flash to make the most efficient use of the rapidly fading sunlight.Here’s the infamous shot that was a teaser image the day after their wedding. It got a LOT of praise and I even had an organization contact me about entering it into a competition of theirs….but as it turns out, I might like the one below THAT even more!Yep-THIS one. Swoon.

As if all of this excitement wasn’t enough, THEN the bride had the day laid out so we would end our coverage at Waldameer, meeting up with the rest of the bridal party for some fun. How cool is this couple?!

How fun is this couple!?  For more photo awesomeness be sure to check out the highlights slideshow! {For the best viewing experience, view at 720p or higher}

Congratulations to Ryan and Stephanie!
