Erie Weddings: Lucia and Brandon at Mercyhurst University

I have had the honor of photographing many weddings for graduates of Mercyhurst College (now University!). Lucia and Brandon’s wedding was held in late September of 2012.

Many Mercyhurst graduates have had their ceremonies at the chapel on the campus of the University. Lucia and Brandon chose to have their ceremony in Mercyhurst’s Christ the King Chapel:

We captured some very nice images on the Mercyhurst campus as well:

Congratulations, Lucia and Brandon!

Erie Weddings: Danielle and Charles

Weatherwise, September 22nd was an “iffy” day. Part of it was sunny. Some was windy. Most of it was cloudy with the threat of precipitation. Danielle, our bride, was not about to be put off by a bit of rain!


The ceremony and reception were held at the historic Sunset Inn in Erie. Famous for its amazing views of the lake at sunset, this day did not have quite the sunset appeal for Danielle and Charles. But that did not stop them from having their ceremony outdoors!

A delightful indoor reception followed:

After the reception ended, I still wanted to capture the “Sunset” moment that they wished for and had missed, owing to the rainy weather. So a couple of days later, we ventured out and captured these memorable moments:

Congratulations, Danielle and Charles! You did get your “Sunset” wedding!
