This memorial day weekend I met Ronny at Hotel Indigo where she got ready with her girls before heading to the Baltimore Streetcar Museum. This girl had a smile on her face all morning that I just couldn't stop capturing! The joy that filled the room was contagious and I was thrilled to carry it around all day with me. I snuck out to the library to meet Jon, all decked out in his custom Baltimore suit (one of the coolest suits ever - including baltimore socks, cufflinks, red tie and all). As the groomsmen arrived, hugs were given, beer was had and laughter filled this space, too. The moments ticked by, the guys left the space, and Jon waited patiently to see his bride.
Ronny was a vision in her beautiful dress and before long it was time for her to meet Jon just down the hall. The joy that Ronny emanated became the sweetest tears of joy as she walked up to her husband to be. Their first look was so full of love, but my goodness, what came after that... Ronny and Jon decided to write their own vows, for just the two of them. So, after their first look and a few portraits they sat down together and read their vows a loud to one another. It was so difficult to hold back tears as these two poured into one another their memories, admirations, and promises to each other. It was such a beautiful moment that I can only imagine these two will cherish forever.
Soon after we made our way to the Baltimore Streetcar Museum and snuck in a few portraits just before we got back into the cars to go in for the ceremony. Literally - sheets of rain came pouring down the moment we closed the doors! The rest of the day was on-and-off showers, which didn't keep anyone from having the best time. From their heartfelt ceremony (including mad-lib vows!), to some of the best food I've ever tasted (thank you The Food Market!), to the streetcar rides for guests, the whole day was just extra full of life! And the details of the day!! Ronny made practically everything, including their incredibly detailed cake toppers and pinwheels for her bridesmaids! Such a colorful and beautiful day.
The blog version of a P.S.: Very quickly we have to talk about this venue. First, I am absolutely in love with this space! But you need to know, one of the primary reasons Ronny and Jon chose Baltimore Streetcar Museum is because it only takes a few events their to fund the museum for the whole year. This means that on top of the fun, unique and antique vibe, Ronny and Jon knew that choosing to have their wedding there meant giving back to the community. And that is just something that blows me away about these two. The friends, family, and even vendors at the wedding couldn't stop talking about how wonderful this couple is - and I couldn't agree more. Congratulations again Ronny and Jon!
