Saturday was so full of joy! Sheri & Ryan are two peas in a pod. They share a sense of humor, know each other like no one else does, and according to Ryan’s brother, they love to bicker like an old married couple. They are well suited to one another & they don’t hold back when they’re together; they’re their true & authentic selves. Even though they’re young, they’ve been through a lot together already. They’re high school sweethearts & they’ve weathered storms together for 8+ years now. Their wedding day was absolutely beautiful in every way! They chose the most perfect Fall day to get married with the perfect temperature, lovely sunny glow, and a stunning sunset full of color. But we know they would’ve been smiling from ear to ear on their wedding day even if it had been less than perfect weather because the thing that mattered most to both of them was to become husband & wife and pledge forever together in front of their favorite people. We’re so happy for you, Sheri & Ryan! We can’t believe this day has finally come & gone! We feel like it was barely a few months ago when we sat down & talked about all of this after you got engaged. Welcome to the married club! We know you’ll enjoy!boardman wedding photographersboardman wedding photographersboardman wedding photographersboardman wedding photographersJenny from The Willows by Wehr worked her florist magic for Sheri’s wedding day & she, of course, did NOT disappoint!

60 Years of Marriage- Personal Post

Youngstown Country Club Summer Wedding

This past Saturday was the ideally beautiful October day that Midwest brides dream about when planning a Fall wedding! Seriously! It was wall to wall sunshine, blue skies for miles, light glistening through orange & yellow leaves, and a cool breeze to top it all off. Presley & David were full of smiles all day & their family members & friends had such a great time during the wedding ceremony at Damascus Friends Church & the reception at The Embassy in Struthers. Presley & David were fantastic planners & chose to do a first look because their church was a pretty far drive from their reception hall. The first look was really romantic & these two are going to receive so many bride & groom portraits! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bride look so beautiful & put together from the beginning of the wedding day all the way through to the end! Presley & David were dancing the night away, but she didn’t even look like a single hair was out of place- congrats to Magnolias on the Green in Canfield for pulling that one off with her bridal updo! And don’t even get me started on Presley’s STUNNING beaded dress from Toula’s Bridal in Canfield! It was absolutely gorgeous on her! The day was so much fun because Presley & David are surrounded by wonderful friends who know how to celebrate. We’re so thankful we got to photograph the joy!  high end wedding photographerhigh end wedding photographerhigh end wedding photographerSweet Arrangements provided the flowers for the wedding day.

You’ve come to the right place if you want to see a wedding day full of love & emotion between two people who love each other more than anything. Not to mention, they have the cutest Boston Terriers we’ve ever seen- they were both part of the wedding & wore the most adorable tuxes! Corinne & Jason’s wedding day was beautiful in every way! The weather was full of sunshine, the temperature was pleasant, their fresh florals from Fodor Tree Farm were vibrant, her dress was unique & stunning on her, and there was even a horse & carriage! Just wait until you see all of the amazingness! We loved photographing this wedding day! If you’ve been following along with our blog lately, you may have noticed that we’ve been hanging at The Barn & Gazebo in Salem a lot! We had three weddings at The Barn & Gazebo this month! It’s so interesting how certain venues seem to hit our schedule simultaneously, but we’re not complaining. We really enjoy photographing weddings at The Barn & Gazebo- it’s a rustic venue full of character & takes on a different form depending on who decorates it. On Jason & Corinne’s wedding day it was decorated in beautiful blooms with deep hues & pops of bright color. Everything was gorgeous! Corinne had amazing bridal details including the handkerchief her grandmother gave to her mother on her wedding day that her mother passed down to her- something old, borrowed, and blue! We are so happy for Cori & Jay!salem barn and gazebo weddingsalem barn and gazebo weddingsalem barn and gazebo weddingsalem barn and gazebo weddingsalem barn and gazebo weddingHer stunning & unique gown is from Evaline’s Bridal.

We feel like Fall is the perfect time to share this Summer engagement session with you for a few reasons- Jaclyn & Wally’s engagement session was an overcast, chilly day for Summer, we hit up a beautiful winery & Fall seems like such a cozy time to enjoy a glass of wine under twinkly lights, and Fall is a great time to cuddle up under a blanket & look at pretty engagement session blogs, right?! Anyway, this session was a few weeks ago. We were really excited to photograph it because Jaclyn & Wally are super smiley together & are really comfortable together. Their interaction in front of our camera was adorable in every way. None of us could stop smiling the entire time! And we got to go to two new locations, which was really interesting & fun! Jaclyn may look familiar if you’ve followed our blog for awhile because she’s the twin sister of one of our other lovely brides Joslyn. Joslyn’s & her fiancé Joey’s wedding is coming up this October so we’ll see them all again soon- yay! vineyard engagement wedding photos ohioWe started off our engagement session with Jaclyn & Wally at Buhl Park outside of the Avalon Golf & Country Club. vineyard engagement wedding photos ohioSee what I mean about their connection & amazing smiles?!

These two met at a wine festival that Jaclyn’s coworker invited her to & once Wally & Jaclyn realized that they had so much in common, they started dating. They hit it off so easily. When it was time for them to make it official, Wally proposed at a winery. Jaclyn had no idea because she was really caught up in the happy moment, but her sister & Wally’s siblings were waiting nearby. Wally had it all planned out & they all went out to dinner to celebrate the great news. vineyard engagement wedding photos ohiovineyard engagement wedding photos ohiovineyard engagement wedding photos ohiovineyard engagement wedding photos ohiovineyard engagement wedding photos ohiovineyard engagement wedding photos ohiovineyard engagement wedding photos ohiovineyard engagement wedding photos ohioOutfit change & scenery change!
