Wedding Photography In West Virginia
Wedding Photography in West Virginia. Emily and Bill’s Lawrencefield B&B wedding in Wheeling, WV was a rocking good time. And that’s not just because D.J. Zombo was there with his Zombotron 🙂 It was a big family event and everyone from the kids to the older generation had a part to play.
Getting Ready at Her Parent’s House
Lawrencefield is one of those elegant old gilded-age country estates in the hills above Wheeling, not far from Oglebay, and Sandscrest. It’s quiet and rural, but still only a few minutes from Wheeling and about 45 minutes from Pittsburgh. The wedding day started with Emily getting ready at her parents’ house in Wheeling.
Emily’s sister Megan helps with her sparkly high-heeled shoes from Betsy Johnson.
Beautiful lace detail on Emily’s dress and a wreath on her parent’s front door.
Megan hands Emily a Kind Bar on their way out the door to the church. Gotta keep that blood sugar up!
The Ceremony in Wheeling, WV
Standing with Megan and her their dad Kevin, Emily gives the thumbs-up to the flower girls and ring bearers at the back of St. Michael Church in Wheeling.
St. Michael’s Church on National Road in Wheeling is a lovely parish.

They’re pretty happy about it, too 🙂
The Flatiron Building
The weather was pretty crappy, but no worries. We went to downtown Wheeling for a photo shoot inside of the historic and beautiful Flatiron Building in downtown Wheeling. Emily’s dad is redeveloping the 120-year-old building so we had the run of the place! Like many old buildings, attention was paid to providing natural light – perfect for pictures.
On to the Reception
While the cocktail hour went on inside of the mansion at Lawrencefield, the stage was set in the tent outside for the reception. It was tremendous space!
Emily and her friends goofing around with a pillow fight while they were inside the B&B freshening up.
I saw this little cubby hole with beautiful light. So I had all of the ladies crowd into it. Fun, huh?
The rain stopped for a few minutes so we went out to the barn for a few portraits. That veil, right?!?
Emily and Bill make their entrance into the reception (Lisa’s photo). It really pays to have a great second shooter.
Emily was all smiles during the first dance.
Kevin toasts the happy couple.
The action on the dance floor was hot, crowded, and fun!
If you want good photos then you’ve got to get close!
A Sweet Ending
