Last fall, Andrea and Kyle brought their dog Nova to their engagement session at Nova Place. At the wedding in September, Andrea’s dad shared that the name Nova came from the phrase “Northern Virginia” – where they were living together when they first got their puppy.

These two are kind and quiet and very go with the flow and sweet. They have so much maturity. They’ve been in a few weddings One thing I noticed was, during the Catholic ceremony, Andrea observed that a few relatives with mobility challenges didn’t get to go up for communion and she quietly alerted the priest so he could go to them and offer communion at the pew. I thought that was so kind and attentive to the needs of her guests!

Another sweet and cute little touch was that they had a small “Nova” put on the side of their cake – now we’ve seen dogs on the cake before, sure. But this little statue was designed to make it look like the Golden Retriever had taken a bite out of their cake!

Andrea’s veil was beautiful – we love the cathedral length and it caught the light perfectly. Kyle had a great “fit” as the kids say today on TikTok with a custom-made suit and pants with no break. To the grooms out there, the more fitted suits look great in photos!

Now let’s talk about their venue – Point View Hall has the best view in town. The curving balcony is amazing and I overheard some of Kyle’s guests from Delaware talking about how beautiful it was and how great our Pittsburgh weather was too. As the sun set outside and we took some sunset images with the couple, I thought of how September is probably the prettiest month here – the most gorgeous light and the last hurrah before fall.

These two are now making their home in Columbus together after starting out in a long distance relationship. It was an honor to work with them – there was so much happiness and joy!
Note to the couple:
