Ally has been a family friend as long as I can remember. I think of her as a kid playing in the ocean on beach vacations, so it was both surreal and satisfying to see her as an adult, marrying her longtime boyfriend Brendan. This was one of those hometown weddings where we knew, or were in some way connected to most everyone in attendance, which always drives home the importance of these events, seeing people you know and know well in the midst of a wedding day.
We started the day at the Damascus Friends Church, where they were married by the entertaining John Ryser. Although it was raining during the ceremony, the weather cleared up on our trip to Stadium Park in Canton just in time for our creative portraits at the McKinley Monument. We moved on to La Pizzaria for a family style meal and a great dance party. We finished the evening with a sparkler send off and somehow nobody got burned! 😉
Thanks for having us guys, we look forward to sharing the rest of the photos with you!
