Brian + Lindsay Mohr - 7.4.2015
If you travel back in time seven years from the date of their wedding, you would find yourself at the exact day that Brian and Lindsay met.
Lindsay worked as a pharmacist. Her co-worker at the time was having a baby and asked Lindsay if she would be her daughter’s godmother. Lindsay agreed. Not surprisingly, she was curious as to who the godfather would be. Her best friend, and future maid of honor, encouraged her that they should scope him out on Facebook. They were not disappointed with what they found. Brian and Lindsay finally met one another in person at the 4th of July carnival in Ellwood City, brought together by the goddaughter they would soon share, and who would, exactly seven years later, be the flower girl at their wedding.
Lindsay spent the morning of her wedding day getting ready in her childhood home, alongside her parents and bridesmaids. Callie Kim from Auria Salon was at the house to do all the hair and makeup (talk about great service!) That allowed for a relaxed, low key way to start out the day. Lindsay decided to do a reveal with her parents, at which time she planned to surprise them with the special gifts she had made for them. They were beautiful, personally embroidered handkerchiefs, that served well to dry the tears that were shed when Lindsay made her debut.
Their ceremony took place at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox church in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. This was our first Greek wedding! The church was one of the most beautiful we've ever seen with the most enormous chandelier. And the Father who officiated the ceremony was awesome! (He was even excited about the drone shots!) The Greek ceremony is beautifully traditional and very ceremonious. The ceremony has actually remained almost entirely unchanged since its origination centuries ago. Many parts of the ceremony are performed three times in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. There are no traditional vows- and just a little kiss at the end. This Greek wedding was truly special and a privilege to experience the great intent that is taken during the ceremony to symbolize the bride and groom’s lives being entwined into one.
The reception was an incredible party. Located at the Marriot in Cranberry, there was live music for the cocktail hour, incredible food, a photo booth and lots of beautifully thought out details. The center pieces stood out to us- as each table had photos of Brian and Lindsay at the same ages throughout their lives paired together. It was fun to see a glimpse of them throughout the ages!
Thank you Brian and Lindsay for trusting us to capture your wedding day! We had a blast at your wedding and were blessed to be a part of the day. (They even let us go in their photo booth! - and encouraged us to stick around and break it down on the dance floor!) They are a blast! Lindsay overflows with love and enthusiasm for life, and for her new husband! We wish you guys all the best as you enjoy the greatest adventure of this life- and work towards being an old couple who plays gin :)
