May 25 was a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding. The sun was shining brilliantly through puffy white clouds, and although it was a bit windy, it was a lovely day. I met Ashley in college, and I was delighted when she asked me to be the photographer for her wedding ceremony. (Unfortunately, her original photographer had cancelled last minute, but it gave me a great opportunity!) The ceremony was held in a charming gazebo at the Mill Creek Park Rose Garden in Youngstown, OH. I had never been to this park before, and I was blown away by its beauty! The landscaping was pristine, and the blooming flowers were absolutely gorgeous! I'm a big fan of landscape and nature photography, so being able to shoot with this beautiful backdrop was a treat for me. Ashley and Mike looked radiant together, and I wish them a lifetime of happiness!
