There’s a few wedding venues in Maryland that just give me that “wedding magic” feel; Antrim 1844 is definitely one of those locations. With its historic architecture, stunning gardens, and classy decorating, Antrim 1844 allows its guests to get lost in the feeling of the day. Ame and her bridesmaids got ready for the wedding day in Antrim’s bridal suite while Jason and his grooms-people did their thing in the carriage house.
Well it might be a tad late, but I've finally got Lindsay and Mike's wedding at The Mansion at Valley Country Club up on the blog. You may remember these two from their engagement session last winter. These love birds had an amazingly beautiful wedding day; one of the last perfect days of the Fall in fact. They said their vows on the front steps of the Valley Country Club and celebrated the evening away in the beautiful reception hall. It was something else to see with the amazing draperies alongside the warm dark hardwood that covers the walls and floors of this historic wedding venue.
ack in the spring I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of a couple that I've known for many years. In fact, Brad used to live in the room directly below me in college. Apparently, these two met in our college's computer lab while Brad was attempting to hack the World Bank and Jenni did homework. I'm not sure the hacking worked but in the end he got something much more valuable than money. Time passed, they fell in love. According to Brad its because Jenni has, "pretty hair and a nice butt".
As I'm sure some of you remember, I photographed this stud and beauty's engagement over the summer at their home Mary and Steve's Engagement. A home that happens to be walking distance from their wedding venue; Herrington on the Bay. If rain on your wedding day is good luck, these two got it by the bucket loads. We did manage to sneak in some KILLER night shots of these two. There's something about working in tricky lighting situations that just gets my creative juices going.
Sometimes in wedding photography you get asked to shoot in some pretty interesting locations. People tend to pick a wedding or reception venue that really reflects who they are. While I might be a Baltimore wedding photographer, I had the chance to photograph a wedding in DC where the reception took place at an amazing brewery. The Right Proper Brewery in DC is where Stephanie and Darrel decided to celebrate their wedding with close family and friends. It was freaking awesome!
Some of you may recognize this couple. I photographed their engagement in downtown Frederick last Winter. You can check out that blog post here Ashley and Josh's Engagement. Well they had such a good time with me they brought me around for their wedding too. Thankfully, this time the weather was so perfect the day seemed to stretch on forever in one of those perfectly blissful warm Fall afternoons.
Sam and Mike got married this last summer almost when that CRAZY storm wiped out most of Ellicott City. Safely nestled up on a hill, overlooking the city, is the Patapsco Female Institute. Its the shell of a old school that's been renovated and turned into an open air venue. Does that make it "old-school cool"? Dad jokes aside, it's a beautiful wedding venue and these two filled it with love. Their gorgeous wedding matched the colors of the Institute and it couldn't have been more perfect. Samantha's family even managed to get her dad's old convertible up and running just for the wedding.
On an exceptionally warm day in May, Ashley and Joe celebrated their wedding in the most beautiful way possible. These two are a truly stunning and beyond that some of the kindest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. The ceremony was absolutely lovely and the reception, held at Grimmel Farms, was something straight out of Pintrest! This rustic wedding was just truly beautiful.
