Few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only. - Victor Hugo, Les Miserables
For their seven year anniversary, Eric asked Corry out on a dinner date to Mt. Washington. What he didn't tell her, is that he had invited her sister and his best friend to follow them and make sure to stay hidden until the right moment. When they arrived, they were "too early" for dinner so Eric took Corry to the overlook and surprised her with a marriage proposal. Thanks to their tag-a-longs, they had video and pictures of the whole thing. That day was March 23rd, 2018.
Fast forward a year. It was chilly on March 23rd, 2019, but the skies were blue and the sun shining. It was a beautiful day for a wedding. Rich and I arrived at the Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square and went up to see Corry. She had the biggest smile on her face as she prepared to have her hair styled. She pointed us in the direction of where she had all her bridal details and we quickly got to work photographing the lace and sparkle. I was in love with the blush gown and beautiful earrings. As soon as Eric arrived, we went and introduced ourselves. He seemed very relaxed and happy. These two were possibly the calmest bride and groom that I've worked with.
Rich and I spent time separately, he with Eric and I with Corry and then we swapped for a bit, each capturing the day as we saw it. The friendship and family bonds in this wedding were so strong and special. Corry's mother and stepmother both helped lace her into her dress and her sisters helped put in her earrings.
Soon enough, it was time for the first look. When Eric saw Corry for the first time, he couldn't stop the tears. His bride was a vision in blush and ivory, the lace detailing absolutely stunning. She simply smiled and they held each other tenderly. And a few hours later, despite having already seen her during their private first look, Eric still teared-up when Corry walked down the aisle toward him. Listening to Corry and Eric recite their vows to each other was so touching. They spoke promises of creating dreams together, of seeking compromise, of always and forever.
It was exactly a year after his proposal, that Corry and Eric stood in the same spot for their wedding portraits. In anticipation of becoming husband and wife, they whispered "I love you" and revealed that the secret to happiness is communication and always being willing to compromise. It's what had gotten them here, to their wedding day.
