From the Photographer;

Carrington and Tyler’s wedding day was not only featured within WV Weddings Magazine, but also selected as an “Editor’s Pick”. When I was 16 and just starting my photography business, I use to day dream about my own wedding day by flipping through the pages of WV Weddings Magazine. Now I am actually a photographer that has had my work featured in WV Weddings Magazine 5+ times since 2019. I can’t even begin to explain what an honor it is to be featured in a magazine that sparked my love for wedding photography. When I think about how far I have come with my photography, the amount of people I have met and formed relationships with, it truly brings tears of joy to my eyes. When I picked up a camera and devoted time to learning everything I could about the wedding industry, I didn’t realize back then what an impact I would make through my art. I take this gift so seriously because capturing memories for people on big moment days like wedding days has allowed me to see life in such a precious way. If you are planning a wedding or elopement, I would love to meet you! You can explore my experience, and learn more about what it’s like working together.

I’m so grateful that Carrington and Tyler asked me to capture their wedding celebrations. Carrington and I were actually childhood neighbors, and throughout the years she has followed along on social media always showing her love for my photography work. It felt truly special to capture a wedding day for someone who truly trusted and valued me completely. And that value shows within their wedding gallery!

From the Article;

The couple chose to have two ceremonies: an intimate Catholic ceremony just for parents and grandparents on St. Patrick’s Day; then, two days later, a larger event at the historic Hotel Morgan in Morgantown. The bride chose different dresses for the various events. She wore her mother’s pearl earrings and carried a bouquet of white, soft pink, cream, and linen-colored orchids and roses and, as her something old, a four leaf clover pin that belonged to her great-grandmother. The groom wore a white tuxedo jacket with a black bow tie. Bridesmaids donned black dresses, and groomsmen looked dapper in black tuxedos.

The couple offered signature drinks: Hers was a “My Ty,” and his was a “Cran This Be Love,” made with cranberry vodka. The newlyweds cut into a traditional white wedding cake that sported the 50-year-old cake topper that Carrington’s grandparents had used on their wedding day. The couple also personally delivered individual trays of cookies made by Carrington’s mother, grandmothers, and family friends to each table through the evening.
