Last weekend Matt & I headed out of town to shoot Shannon & Todd’s wedding near Pittsburgh. They held their wedding at Mannitto Golf Club in New Alexandria (which is not far from Latrobe). As we headed out to Mannitto, the skies were gray and gloomy and it looked like it would almost certainly rain the entire evening. We continued to hope for the best. It rained on our wedding day and we certainly didn’t want that to happen to Shannon & Todd! Also, this was our first Pittsburgh wedding and Mannitto Golf Club is such a stunning location for a wedding, so it just *couldn’t* rain!
Clearly, God had other plans for this sweet couple! Just before the ceremony the sun came shining through and the skies were blue with fluffy white clouds. You couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather! Not only that but as everyone enjoyed the reception outside underneath Mannitto’s pavilion there were ooh’s and ahh’s over the beautiful rainbow that formed beyond the clubhouse. It was such a glorious day for a wedding, including a sunset with some of the boldest colors I have ever seen before!
All of the colors were just insane, from the golden tones during the formal photos to the dramatic storm clouds to the sunset to Mannitto’s beautifully landscaped grounds… INSANE! It was one of the most beautiful weddings we have ever seen and Shannon & Todd were so deserving of having everything turn out the way it did.
I can continue to try to describe how beautiful it was but I think everyone would rather see the photos! Congratulations to the happy newlyweds, Shannon & Todd! Your wedding was truly beautiful and your friends and family were such a joy to be around! We wish you both much happiness together! : )
We just LOVED the clubhouse at Mannitto! It looked like a red barn and was so gorgeous for photos!
