Finally getting caught up enough to do what usually sits on the back-burner (but is one of my absolute favorite ways to share) – blogging.  In July, my friends – Donnie & Tasha tied the knot and I am so excited that I was able to be a part of it.  I’ve know Donnie for a long time now and to look at him during the ceremony and see how happy he was, it was awesome.  Tasha is a sweetheart and I wish them both many, many years of happiness!

Check out the video to see even more, especially the photo booth fun!

Thanks you two for asking me to capture your day.  It was an honor!

Winter weddings.  Cold?  Yes.  Beautiful?  Absolutely.  Emily was stunning and her bridesmaids’ dresses (on seven gorgeous bridesmaids) were definitely my very favorite of the year.  The guys were equally gorgeous and fun – which made our job so easy.  Emily & Gino are two super sweet and thoughtful people.  They didn’t want their bridal party to get cold, so we had some fun inside with the group at the Poland Library and then heated things up outside with Emily and Gino by themselves.  These images were well worth bearing the cold and I think I could say I loved every single one of them.  It wasn’t just the atmosphere or the beautiful architecture.  It’s the way these two look at each other.  They are so in love and it couldn’t be more obvious.

An awesome party afterward at The Lake Club (seriously, the best place for a reception – I love shooting there) with Rudy and the Professionals.  Couldn’t have ended the year any better.  🙂

Emily's niece was the flower girl and so adorable.

Emily's dress was breath-taking.



Posing for grandma.


Grandpa saved the day on helping the littlest one down the aisle. How cute are they? 🙂

One of my favorites.

Gino's dad is a singer and sang their first dance. Such a beautiful moment.

A serenade from Rudy. 🙂

The parent dances were very sweet.

Congratulations and thanks so much, Emily & Gino!  It was an honor to be a part of your day.

Congratulations to Sami & Craig!  We had a great time at their Fall wedding!  Such awesome details.  The candy/cookie table was filled with all of everyone’s favorites and the wine list rocked.  They hit the area wineries and even created a variety of their own for the celebration.  The pumpkin cake…all I can say is yum.  Definitely my new favorite.  Not only were the details great, they are just one of the sweetest couples ever.  Very thoughtful and so great to work with.

Sami & Craig's personal mix - this was delicious (they gave us some as a gift!)

The room was buzzing that morning while all the girls where busy getting ready.

Sami's dress was beautiful.

My absolute favorite bridesmaid dress of the year! It was actually two pieces - gorgeous.

One last check before she heads down the aisle.

St. James Meeting Place

Craig's brother performed the ceremony.

The girls were so funny! 🙂

Tons of people on the dancefloor including DJ Branden 🙂

Had an awesome time shooting this wedding with Jimmy!  Congratulations, again, Sami & Craig!

Ever meet a person that’s just so sweet, you immediately want to be their friend?  That’s how I would describe both Amy & Brian.  I think if you asked any of their friends or family, they will probably tell you the same.  And their love for each other?  Well, check out the images…I think you can see that sweetness for yourself.

Fall colors for three adorable little flower girls.

Love how Brian is checking out his ring here.

A lot of fun with this crew.

The lighting that night provided by Special Light was spectacular!

There were so many cookies - they took up two tables. Yum! 🙂

Brian & Amy heading to the floor for their 1st dance as husband and wife.

Check out the bubbles in the background. Although, I don't think these two noticed them. 😉

Amy & her proud father.

Both of Brian's grandmas were so cute and they were dancing all night long!

The House Band kept the dance floor full.

Congratulations, Amy & Brian!  It was a blast working with you and we wish you a lifetime of happiness.  🙂

Lisa & Walt said I do in Boardman, but the party headed to PA after that to Wally’s hometown of New Castle.  New Castle Country Club was a great setting for their formals.  We avoided a few flying golf balls before reaching the New Englander for the celebration.  There were so many great images, but these are some of my favorites from the day.

The girls were great with helping Lisa get ready.

Something borrowed...

Lisa wanted a picture with Wally before the ceremony, but did not want to break tradition. 🙂

Congratulations, Lisa & Wally!  We had a great time with you both.  🙂
