“Some things are meant to be. Take my hand, take my whole life too. For I can’t help falling in love with you” Christie & Arik’s Loft at Sweet Water County Club Wedding was so perfect!  Can’t wait for you to see a little sneak peek into the day!

Bride Getting Ready at Her Parents House

I love being greeted, when I arrive to a wedding, with open arms! We love seeing our couples and their families and are so lucky to get to be such an important part of their day!  When I first saw Christie’s dress, I gasped at how beautiful it was!  All her little details were the perfect additions to complete her look!  Right before we left the house to head to the venue, I got some photos of Christie at her piano.  She looked so radiant and beautiful.

The Story of Christie & Arik

Christie went away to college to the University of Pittsburgh.  Arik started working for Christie’s parents.  Since Arik had to travel to Pittsburgh for some work, so Christie’s mom gave him her number so he could call her if he got bored while he was out there.  After a few trips out there, he finally gave her a call!  And, well, they’ve been together ever since!!

First Look at The Loft at Sweet Water Country Club

To say Christie & Arik were excited to see one another would be an understatement!  She practically ran to him with joy! <3

Overlooking the golf course, the ceremony location was perfect!  The moment that Christie walked out of the balcony doors, you could see the excitement on Arik’s face! There was so much anticipation in the air as Christie and Arik read their vows, and just like that – they were married!!

A Fun Reception at The Loft at Sweet Water Country Club

As Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley started to play, the room fell silent.  Gasps were heard and tears were seen all around because Christie & Arik surprised everyone with a choreographed first dance!  It might be the best first dance that we’ve ever seen!  It definitely set the mood for an evening of fun and celebration!!
