Sometimes the greyest days make for the best pictures, and this was certainly the case for Amanda and Mark! The Oberports beautifully captured every detail from the couples day and we are still swooning! Mark, a professor at Slippery Rock University, and Amanda, a Professional Photographer in the City of Pittsburgh, chose Rustic Acres to house their main event as it was just minutes from their family home in New Wilmington! The couple chose to have a first look not only with each other but with their guests as well as they stood before the ceremony site, personally greeting everyone who arrived!

The non-traditional couple joined each other, accompanied by the Mother of the Groom and Mother of the Bride, for their short walk down the aisle.

The color scheme for the wedding was jewel tones, and the couple displayed their vibrant florals on classic navy linens with a mixture of round and rectangle table shape.
