Wow! What a day! Leave it to a weatherman to choose one of the most gorgeous days of the year for his wedding date. That's right, Mark's a meteorologist and he must have a few prediction tricks up his sleeve because it was seventy degrees in late April without a cloud in the sky.

Amanda and Mark's wedding was a great party with a fairly large crowd.  It was clear to us from the start that it was important to them to share their wedding with as many of their nearest and dearest as possible.

From the bride:
Mark and I are both very modern, artsy people which is the main reason we picked ArtsQuest Center at Steel Stacks for our reception. We are both so in love with the building and with Bethlehem and couldn't imagine a better place to host our big day. We are very excited to share that space with our friends, as many of Mark's family and friends aren't familiar with the area and it will be their first time seeing the Stacks and the great space ArtsQuest created. We both have a ton of family and friends and although sometimes wish we would have scaled back a bit, we are looking forward to celebrating with all 250+ people! My best friend passed away, someone who was very close to both Mark and I and part of the reason we met. So asking his sister Danielle to be my maid of honor was a big deal for all three of us and she is a very special part of our day as well.
Everyone was so friendly, which is a good since Amanda and Mark set aside plenty of time for portraits with their wedding party (thanks for your patience guys!).  We ended up with some amazing shots and with plenty of variety and interesting details. My favorite photos are the shots Josh took from behind the altar and the after dark photos in front of the stacks. Scroll on to check out some of our favorite photos from the day.

We also set up a photo booth for a couple hours at the reception. Click on over to the photo booth gallery to check out the fun!
