Vowing to be caught up on my blogging soon (as always…lol), I’m going to start out with this Spring wedding in Youngstown.  I met Erica a few years back while photographing her brother’s wedding.  It’s always so great to get to work with a family, again.  Erica & Nate were so sweet to photography and we really enjoyed our day with them.  The Davis Center was gorgeous and these two couldn’t stop smiling at each other.  Here are a few of my favorites from their day!

Wow, this Spring and Summer have been incredibly busy!  This wedding kicked off an eight wedding stretch through May and June.  I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun Angie and I have had this year with our couples and their friends and families.  This day was definitely no exception.  Along with all of the amazing little details Kristie and Mitch had, she put out quite the spread of props for the Live Photo Booth and their guests had a ball with them!

We started out the day in Shenango Valley RV Park where the girls were getting ready and then headed over to Grace Chapel Community Church for a beautiful ceremony, in which Kristie & Mitch literally “tied the knot”.

Kristie & Mitch’s little boy is an absolute baby doll and was their ring bearer.  🙂

After the ceremony, we headed to the flower garden where the tulips were in full bloom!  The guys also came up with the idea of a “faux” selfie…lol.

I had worked with Megan’s family a couple of years ago when her sister was married, so I already knew one thing about her and Bryan’s wedding.  The details were going to be amazing!  In my opinion, Megan’s mom should have her own creativity show.  Her details were unbelievable.  To the one of a kind button bouquet she designed for her daughter, all the way down to the cute little flower girl’s feet.  🙂  It was so fun getting to work with the family, again!

Thank you so much, Megan & Bryan for allowing us to capture your day!

It’s that time of year, again!  Time to play catch up and shamefully (or maybe thankfully, for being so busy) I am just now getting to blog Anastasia + Jim’s greek orthodox beautiful wedding from June!  With Anastasia’s father officiating, the ceremony and day was so rich with tradition, it was unbelievable.  It was so touching watching them exchange their vows.  I can only imagine what it must be like to not only give your daughter away, but also be the one to unify her with her new husband.  Fr. Andrew kept it together – I would’ve been a mess.  🙂  Angie & I loved capturing every moment.  So awesome.  After the service, we headed to New Castle for formals (and lots of laughs) at Cascade and entertainment and really yummy food at The New Englander afterward.  Still thinking about those caramel cookies…lol.

Check out some of the gorgeousness below.  It was truly an honor to be a part of it – not to mention – a ton of fun.  🙂  Thank you so much, Anastasia & Jim!!
