Angela and Bruce's Blue and Orange Tidewater Inn Wedding | with Harry Potter details | Easton, MD

#orangeandbluesayido #groveapair #angelanadbrucearefantastic. Okay, so only two of these were the real hashtags at their wedding, but that last one definitely should have been included. From the moment I met Angela and Bruce I knew this would be one amazing day. Their personalities were so fun and so real, and as we sipped our coffee and they told me about their story and their dreamy Tidewater Inn wedding, with an orange and blue color scheme and nods to Harry Potter I just envisioned what their day would become - and it exceeded anything that I could conjure up in my mind. What made it fantastic above all else were these two, everyone who surrounded them, and their love. Bruce is one of the most emotive grooms I have met, in every way. When Angela walked down the aisle he couldn’t keep the tears in. Writing a novel on their story for his vows which included lines like “I promise not to ever eat wet nuts with my hands again” along with some of the sweetest sentiments I’ve heard. They shoved cake into each others faces and just a few minutes later they were on the dance floor, sharing their first dance to one of their favorite film scores that brought the whole room to silence and tears.

This is a wedding that I could write about forever, all the emotions that filled the day, all of the beautiful details. But I really want you to soak it in through the images. These two had the most gorgeous May-day for their wedding; getting ready was fantastic, sunset photos were a must, and the Tidewater Inn was the perfect backdrop for these two to celebrate their official beginning of being one for life. Congratulations again, Angela and Bruce! Thank you so much for inviting me in to be a part of your day <3

Ronny and Jon's Baltimore Street Car Museum Wedding

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!

Samantha and Andrew's Baltimore Engagement Session

I took a trip to Baltimore Maryland and met up with Samantha and Andrew for an evening of exploring and chatting; some snuggles for them and clicking for me - these two did not disappoint! It felt like I was being shown around town by two old friends, despite this being the first time we had actually met in person. From the moment we had our first Skype meeting I knew that this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

Samantha and Andrew's love for one another is so real. They're so sweet with each other and you can tell that they are just best friends! We started in Charle's Village where it all began for the two of them, Andrew's old apartment! From there we took a trip to Parts & Labor, a seriously cool auto body shop turned restaurant (I know, right?) and then to Mount Vernon to catch the last bit of sun! 

It was the most wonderful thing to get to know these two a bit more and a privilege to capture their love. Samantha and Andrew I am so crazy excited to photograph your wedding in the spring at Accelerator Space (but let's see each other a lot sooner than that, okay?)

Have fun taking a peek into our evening!
