SAMANTHA + JOE | NILES, OH

Samantha and Joe are both engineers at Rockwell Automation. They enjoy being active, whether they're in the gym working out together, playing tennis, or just going on a walk through the park. They married on September 17, 2016 at Immaculate Heart of Mary in Austintown, OH.

How & When You Meet: "Joe and I met and started dating in high school, we both attended Austintown Fitch and graduated a year apart from each other, Joe in 2008 and Samantha in 2009. We have been together since 2007. We got engaged in Dec 2014 and married Sept 2016 so we were engaged just under two years. I really enjoyed the long engagement because we had more time to plan everything and the planning process was relaxed."

Your Best Memory From The Day: Samantha said "although our whole day was amazing and I had a blast at the reception, my favorite memory was probably our first look! It was just the two of us for a few short moments before the craziness of the day. It was nice to have that time of just us and to have the candid photos from that as well is just a plus!"

Joe thought "the whole day was a blast but I enjoyed the ceremony. Even though we were surrounded by our family and friends, we were seated up on the alter, just the two of us so it felt like no one else was around. We were able to talk to each other and really just enjoy the moment, it was a great start to our day!"

The bridal party gathered at Fellows Riverside Gardens, Lily Pond, and Niles McKinley Memorial for pictures. Sam's gown purchased from Livia Calais in Canfield is truly the focal point in the photos.

How Did Your Wedding Style Compliment You As A Couple: "We like simple so nothing was super extravagant or over the top but we definitely but a lot of thought and time into each detail of the day. We wanted it to just be a fun day for us to celebrate with our family and friends. Everyone was very excited since we have been together for such a long time."
