Randa + Adam Wed in Wheeling, WV

Randa and Adam’s wedding was in the surprisingly funky town of Wheeling, WV where old world industrial city has given way to a funky artistic community occupying the ashes of former steel mills and cigar factories. Autumn was coming on strong and the leaves were about half changed sprinkling beautiful colors throughout the mountains and valleys. The ceremony was at the beautifully restored St. John the Divine Greek Orthodox Church in downtown Wheeling. Randa looked radiant in a beaded strapless gown, while her groom was in traditional white tie.

After a bubble and rose pedal departure we photographed the couple in the old downtown on an 1849 suspension bridge spanning the Ohio River.

Randa’s bouquet was absolutely stunning. The combination of white flowers looks really beautiful on film.

After shooting downtown we continued to the mountain top Oglebay Resort where the reception was to be held. The resort spans a whopping 1700 acres and provided beautiful views of the town of Wheeling. It’s safe to say Randa and Adam’s wedding was the event of the year for the little town as more than 400 guests came for the reception and party. Guests were served Lebanese specialties, filet mignon and Chilean Sea Bass. The decorators did an amazing job turning a giant hall into an intimate space. With massive flower arrangements decorating the table and pink silk draping the the rafting above.

The night ended with a HUGE dance party circling the bride and groom. Randa and Adam’s wedding was a wonderful affair and a great example of how to make a large party into an intimate and fun event.
