Jim and Melenie were married at St. Stephen Church in Niles, Ohio and their reception was at Leos Ristorante in Warren. We started out at her dad’s beautiful home and continued on to the church, followed by photos at the McKinley Memorial across the road after the ceremony. It was extremely warm outside, but both Melenie and Jim and their entire wedding party were so cooperative and lots of fun!

Melenie did such an amazing job with the reception decor. She decided on black and white with tropical flowers, and the result was vibrantly beautiful.

Melenie moved to Columbus to be with Jim after the wedding, so the day was both a celebration of their commitment to each other as well as a huge going away party. They both have very close bonds with their family and friends, and it was a privilege to photograph all the many beautiful moments that happened throughout the day.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Such a beautiful bride!
