Jessica & Eric Wedding | DeYor Performing Arts Center | Youngstown Wedding Photographer

We’re sharing our first DeYor wedding on our blog with you today! It’s hard to believe we haven’t photographed a wedding at DeYor in our almost six years of photographing weddings in the Youngstown area, but it’s true. This was our first. And it was perfect. Jessica & Eric are one of those couples who make you feel like you’ve known them forever even though you’ve only just met. We still remember the first time we met them when they came over to talk about wedding photography & we got caught up in talking about everything else- how they met, how they got engaged, what they liked to do together, Jess’ adorable son, Eric’s job. Then we realized, “Hey, we might as well talk about what you came here to talk about!” ha! But that’s how Jess & Eric are together- comfortable, full of genuine love, relaxed, and authentically happy. We felt like we were friends from that very first meeting so it was wonderful to photograph their beautiful, laid back November wedding day! And we’re so happy they were our first DeYor couple! The ornate decor & warm atmosphere fit their personalities well.DeYor weddingDeYor weddingDeYor weddingDeYor weddingJessica, her two bridesmaids, and her mom all got their makeup done by the lovely ladies at The Makeup Boutique.
