Todd and Candace traveled all the way from Shippensburg to be with family and friends for their wedding in Pittsburgh. Candace and Todd met in 2010 while working together as TSS for autistic youth at the Franklin Learning Center.

Their love story begins there and continues as Todd asked Candace to marry him while ice skating at PPG Place. We shot their engagement photos last December at PPG Ice Rink, which you can check out here: Candace & Todd's Downtown Engagement.

Candace & Todd Fun Facts: Candace, at one point in her career, worked at Disney World (sounds like fun!). Todd is known for his outstanding basketball skills -awarded for scoring over 1000 points in his college basketball career! 

The couple's gorgeous wedding day (perfect weather, might I add) began with a musically-rich ceremony at Missionary Temple Ministries in East Liberty.

After a bubble send-off, the couple jumped in the limo and headed off to the first part of their reception, held at Central Baptist Church.

At Central Baptist, the guests enjoyed light refreshments, cake, and many of the traditional wedding events - although it was anything but traditional having both the guys and the girls so anxious to catch the bouquet and garter.

Once these festivities were completed, the couple and their closest family and friends traveled once more to Hyde Park, a steakhouse on the North Side. Candace changed into her cute purple shoes, and we photographed the bridal party in the lovely area right beside the restaurant.

As we were finishing Candace & Todd's portraits, the Pirates game was just letting out - little did they know that we'd soon be off to the Playoffs!  2013-10-09_00362013-10-09_0036 2013-10-09_00382013-10-09_0038 2013-10-09_00372013-10-09_0037 2013-10-09_00392013-10-09_0039 2013-10-09_00402013-10-09_0040 2013-10-09_00412013-10-09_0041

At the end of the night, Candace & Todd did two "exit shots" - one with sparklers and one with Chinese lanterns. The next day, they traveled off to Cancun for a week of paradise! 

A Very Special Shoutout: To Candace's Aunt Debbie (a.k.a. Debbie Moncrief of Missionary Temple Ministries), who graciously helped the couple pull together their wedding plans remotely in Pittsburgh when they couldn't be here.
