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.

A bride looks out the window while seated in a red upholstered chair in the entryway of a house.

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!

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?!?
