Sarah and Ian had dated for over six years before getting married Memorial Day weekend at the Historic Church of St. Peter and the reception was at Southpointe Golf Club.
Ian and Sarah exchanged gifts the morning of their wedding – Sarah received a pair of pearl earrings and Ian received personalized glasses and a bottle of liquor.
Sarah and Ian both added personal touches to the details on their wedding day. Sarah had rosary beads and a photo pin of her late grandfather in her bouquet. Ian wore his late father’s cufflinks and family ring as well as wearing a photo pin inside of his suit.
With Ian being a huge Star Wars fan, he and all the groomsmen wore Star Wars socks and Sarah surprised him with a Star Wars garter.
After the ceremony and on the way to our photo location, the limo’s tire blew! While the groom directed traffic, one of the groomsman changed the tire. We even were able to grab a few quick pictures of the men in the bridal party being put to work on the wedding day! After a short delay, we got to Washington & Jefferson campus for photos and at that exact time it started to rain. But that’s okay because this – being Pittsburgh – we always prepare a rain plan for our couples. In this case, we planned to use Old Main at W&J which has great covered arches and we brought along one of our sets of umbrellas for the bridal party.
After a few quick pictures, we headed to the reception. Sarah and Ian’s reception featured a different type of floral centerpiece on each table. Sarah and Ian were able to leave the reception for a few moments to finally get their golf course photos. They ended the night with a singing of “Country Roads” for all of the WVU alum to join in.
Note to the couple:
