This beautiful Steinhilber’s Restaurant Wedding has been many years in the making!

I first met this sweet couple through my brother Aaron (who works with Julie). We did family photos for them before her son Kyle joined the military.

Then we had the honor of travelling to Pennsylvania to photograph the wedding for her daughter Paige and her hubby Nick.

Fast forward a few years, and Ray pops the question to Julie (hooray!).

We were so honored to be asked, and kicked things off the right way with a fun engagement session at the Cavalier Hotel.

Now, here we are – getting to share all the gorgeousness from their wedding.

It was such an amazing celebration of love, family, and JOY.

Steinhilber’s Restaurant Wedding

After waiting such a long time to get married – dancing to the song “Amazed” by Lonestar was perfect!

Julie and Ray told me that for as much life as they’ve lived – they are still constantly amazed by the other person.

So sweet!


Ray gave a quick speech, thanking everyone for coming to their wedding. And he said that it was a small group, because everyone present had made an impact on their lives. These were the people who had loved and supported Julie and Ray, and it was important that guests knew how special they were to the couple.

You could tell that Julie and Ray just wanted to jump up and give everyone a big bear hug.


Julie and Ray, after 20 long years, your love story finally has it’s happily ever after.

Eric and I wish you nothing but love, joy, and adventure as you start this next chapter of your life!
