jennifer + justin: the ceremony | jen mcken, photographer | johnstown incline overlook

Built after the Johnstown flood of 1889, The Johnstown Inclined Plane is the steepest vehicular incline in the world, meaning its 30′ cars, which are large enough to hold 60 people, 6 motorcycles, or a vehicle, travel at the steepest grade for cars their size. In its heyday, the Incline carried approximately 1,000,000 passengers a year to and from the downtown area. This was largely due to the steel mills that were in operation. Today the Incline welcomes visitors and locals alike, carrying approximately 100,000 passengers a year. The overhang that you see pictured below is where Jennifer and Justin’s ceremony took place!

There was a storm brewing in the background and as a matter of fact there was lightening and you can tell by some of the images that the wind was a bit out of control….the strange this is, that some how there was a calm about it! As they stood there exchanging their vowels at the top of the Johnstown Incline, and family stood around and watched, it was probably one of the most romantic ceremonies I’ve ever photographed! Her sister conducted the ceremony and her other sister sang acappella as she walked down the aisle with her dad!



You can tell how windy it was on the overlook by her sister’s hair! tee he he!
