Jess and Ray planned their April wedding with hopes of beautiful tulips and budding trees….but instead, they got snow!  HAHA!  That’s Pittsburgh for ya!  It really didn’t matter what the weather was on their wedding day.   Jess and Ray had a gorgeous day full of fun, family, friends, and dogs.  It.  Was.  Awesome.

I LOVE that Jess surprised her father as they were dancing with a game of catch right there on the dance floor.  What a totally unique facet to add to your father-daughter dance experience!
