It’s always an honor to photograph the wedding of friends, and being a part of Alyssa and RJ’s day was no exception. A warm summer day under a white gazebo made for the perfect setting, and the friends and family who made up their bridal party were some of the funniest people I’ve met. Their affection for Alyssa and RJ came through in the pictures – this is truly a couple blessed by those around them.
The reception went long into the evening, and, since this was a Youngstown wedding, of course there was a cookie table. This was no ordinary cookie table, however – the fantastic baking skills of the bride’s mother and family truly raised the bar!
Ceremony: Julia’s Bed & Breakfast
