Despite the sleet & snow Ohio threw at us after a week of temperatures in the mid 50s, Amanda and Dave’s wedding was full of warmth from all of the love, joy, and excitement that went into making it a perfect day! When I met the girls at the salon, I could already tell that it was going to be such a fun day — not even the weather was going to bring anything down :)
Amanda had all sorts of fun details for me to capture, and, well, I couldn’t choose just one ring shot….so you get to see quite a few :)
Of course a #selfie made an appearance or two while the girls where getting ready..
LOVE the one on the right — Amanda’s mother, Darnell, wasn’t quite sure what to make of the “duck face”! :)
After Bridal Party photos and portraits, we headed over to Ciminero’s Banquet Center for the reception!
Youngstown weddings have a unique tradition: everyone bakes cookies and brings them to the wedding for the bride, groom, and guests! I had never seen this before — but absolutely LOVE it!!! :)
Amanda and Dave’s kiddos — Joey and Matt — had SUCH a blast at the reception; they were CRACKING me up with all their dance moves, poses, and stolen photo-booth apparel :P
Amanda and Dave, CONGRATULATIONS again! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding day — I had SO much fun celebrating with you!! Here’s to all the love and happiness life can bring for many years to come!
