I couldn’t wait for Liz & Kirkland’s wedding day.  The two of them were so incredibly sweet at the engagement.  The way they looked at and treated each other.  High school sweethearts are always my favorite.  On their wedding day, Angie (my friend & assistant) said something that has stuck with me since – “when he looks at her, his eyes smile”.  🙂  That was it.  That was what I was seeing during the engagement session and even more so on the wedding day.

I’m so thankful they welcomed me into that  and honored to have been there to capture it!

Lindsay & Greg’s beautiful wedding took place on a perfect summer day this past year.  The kind of day I’m yearning for during these cold winter months.  🙂  They were an amazing couple to work with, their family and friends were awesome and I’m so happy that they allowed Angie and I to be a part of their perfect day.

So to start my “catch up phase”…flashing back to this warm weather wedding in Spring.  What a romantic day Kristin & Chris had and I can’t even say how sweet these two are.  🙂  After Kristin was dressed and ready, they opted to meet at Millcreek’s Metropark Farm for a first look.  If you haven’t heard me say it before, I love when a couple chooses to do the first look.  This moment is all about them.  I love when the groom see’s his bride and is just like, “wow”.  The farm is a perfect backdrop for that and for the formals that followed.  With one of the fastest ceremonies following (seriously, they told me it would be quick, but it was even quicker than that…lol).  Then some more gorgeousness when the sun started to set at the golf club.

How cute is Chris's mom with this blackboard at the front door.  LOVE!

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”.

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.
