Francie & John | Sacred Heart Parish Wedding

Francie and John were married at Sacred Heart Parish in Shadyside and held their reception at the Renaissance Hotel downtown.

I LIVE for moments like this. Perfection.

I brought along a new assistant (Michelle) and she grabbed this shot from a distance with her 70-200.

He was trying to take off her dress. And it was fun.

Francie is a dancer, so it seemed natural to ask her to spin. Image by Craig.

I wrapped her gorgeous ring in the ribbon on her bouquet.

Renaissance Hotel Wedding PhotographyThis wedding was filled with love and emotion, but this moment had everyone in tears. John is from Ireland and his parents were unable to make the trip over for the wedding. His brother put together a very nice video presentation of them wishing the newlyweds happiness and love. To say it was moving would be an understatement.

But the way it made me feel is almost indescribable. All I can say is, thank you Francie and John for allowing me to document your wedding, my heart is full.
