Danielle & Lance Wedding | St. Charles Church | Ciminero’s Banquet Centre | Boardman, Ohio Photographers

Saturday was such a fabulously joyous & relaxing wedding day! Danielle & Lance planned a glorious timeline with ample time for everything & it made the day so much fun & enjoyable for everyone. It’s such a great time being around Danielle & Lance because they’re both so easy to talk to, fun-loving, and full of smiles. Everything about their wedding day was gorgeous & the weather could not have been more perfect. If we could order a day exactly like that for every wedding day we photograph, we would. We photograph brides, grooms, and bridal parties at The Rose Garden (Fellows Riverside Gardens) in Mill Creek Park quite often and that’s because it’s simply stunning. There were a ton of bridal parties there on Saturday & we saw a few of our photographer friends, which was fun. Danielle even knew two other brides that were there taking photos that day.  We’re happy to be sharing this beautiful wedding day with you & can’t wait to show Danielle & Lance all of the photos when they get back from their honeymoon!Mill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosDanielle got her hair done at Casal’s in Canfield.Mill Creek Park wedding photos Her stylist did a beautiful job!Mill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosHer makeup artist came to her parents’ home to enhance her natural beauty.Mill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosWhile I was Danielle & the bridesmaids, Josh was with Lance & the groomsmen.Mill Creek Park wedding photosLance & Danielle exchanged letters to read the morning of the wedding, which is so sweet & romantic.Mill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosAnd Danielle got Lance some sunglasses he’s been eyeing.

We hope many, many, many years down the road that family members can look at Danielle & Lance’s photos & see a glimpse into the way that they truly interacted with one another- authentically, organically, beautifully- instead of stiff & rigid posed portraits. They were so happy and I’d even say giddy to be married. It was a joy to watch.Mill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosHe makes her laugh a lot. Mill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosMill Creek Park wedding photosThe back of her dress!
