Malissa & Justin’s wedding was our last wedding of 2019 and it sure was a great one! Nothing makes us happier than starting out a wedding day with awesome welcoming vibes. It really helps to set the tone of the rest of the day! Malissa and her mother both greeted us so warmly and were so excited to have us there to photograph their big day!
Their wedding ceremony took place at Canfield United Methodist Church. Justin got choked up during their vows, which was very sweet. Their ceremony felt so authentic. You could tell how important it was to them.
After the ceremony we headed to Fellows Riverside Gardens in Mill Creek Park. We got there close to sunset, so we worked as quickly as we could to take advantage of golden hour before we lost the pretty warm light. Malissa looked absolutely stunning. Her dress was so classic and the back of it was gorgeous! Her look definitely had Old Hollywood vibes.
Their reception was filled with emotion and fun. All of the toasts were so heartfelt! Malissa’s dad’s toast was definitely our favorite. There were so many tears and laughs. Damon was D and R Audio is an incredible DJ. His setup was awesome! He had a number where guests could text photos from the reception to and he was able to display the photos on a large screen for guests to see. So cool! We haven’t seen that much dancing at a reception in a long time. We loved that even Malissa & Justin’s grandparents were on the dance floor! Everyone was having fun!
We honestly wish all weddings were like Malissa & Justin’s. Sometimes people focus too much on all of the little things that don’t go as planned and forget what really matters. Getting to marry the one you love. Congratulations again to them!
