Joslyn & Joey Wedding | Boardman Park | Drake’s Landing | Youngstown, Ohio Wedding Photography

From the beginning of Joslyn & Joey’s wedding day all the way through to the end, it was absolutely lovely & full of beauty. These two care about each other more than anything & they’re surrounded by a group of family members & friends that’ll support them through everything. It was encouraging & inspiring to see such a strong family bond. We know it’ll be instrumental in Joslyn & Joey’s life as they build their marriage and future together. The first day of their marriage could not have been more amazing; it was full of glowy light, sunshine, blue skies, smiles, laughter, tight hugs, strong friendships, & unbridled fun. We loved sharing your wedding day with you, Joslyn & Joey, and we’re really happy to share our favorite photos on our blog today!  Boardman Park made such a great backdrop for the just married portraits of the bride & groom, and Drake’s Landing was a cozy & inviting spot for guests to enjoy dinner & dancing!
