Shrub identification help

Asked October 26, 2017, 10:28 AM EDT

I need help to identify a shrub in my yard. It was originally in North Jersey parents yard and I took one of the runners that had rooted years ago. This is also one of the runners from the original I planted here in Harford County maryland. I thought it might be a spirea ‘ bridal wreath’ bush as it was next to that type in my parents yard but it only puts forth very tiny flowers in August. I’ve enclosed 3 pictures for help in identifying. One is a closeup if the flowers this late summer and one is a close up of the red/purple berries that are there as of today. Thank you in advance, .
