On a beautiful hot summer day in July, my second shooter Stephanie and I photographed Kara and Andy’s wedding at Chestnut Ridge Resort in Blairsville, PA. It’s always super-convenient to have everything all in one place – the hotel where everyone got ready, the ceremony, great locations for portraits, and the reception.

Part 1 includes all the moments leading up to the ceremony and the ceremony itself. Shooting under a pavilion on a full-sun day is not really the most desirable of conditions, but it sure kept the guests comfortable, so we made it work. Kara had an awesome theme going on: I’ll call it “bling and blue.” See part 2 here.
