Katie and Tony met in Hawaii on Match.com in 2014.  Tony messaged Katie but did not getting an immediate response. Katie, who created the profile in 2009 at the urging of friends and family, rarely checked it.  But shortly after Tony messaged her, Katie decided to make more of an effort. She updated her profile and started to return messages — including those sent from Tony.  The two hit it off. Match.com messages turned into emails, which turned into texts and eventually into talking on the phone.  Katie said she was “completely smitten” by Tony. Despite Katie recalling that the first date was filled with the standard awkward moments, the next day at work she was saying, “I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it.”  She happily deleted her Match.com profile and has been in love ever since.   On New Year’s Eve 2015, Tony proposed in their home in front of their three dogs.

The wedding was imbued with Hawaiian touches, as the two live in Ewa Beach, on the Hawaiian island of Oahu.  Guests were greeted at cocktails with an Hawaiian trio, along with orchid leis flown in from Hawaii and a Hawaiian style buffet.   And, Katie had a surprise special hula dance for Tony that she learned for the wedding.  Malia Humschild from Lanikai, Hawaii, taught her the dance.   Congratulations!!!

Nearing the end of their time at Loyola University, Connor and Jessica were introduced by mutual friends.  Not missing the opportunity, Connor asked Jessica the color of her dress for the up coming senior gala and matched his suit and tie accordingly.  As time passed and the two grew closer it was time for Connor to pop the question.  On a cold day in January of 2015, with Jessica’s parents in town, he seized the opportunity.  Doing so while the couple were on a walk with their dog, Duck, in the park in Canton.  Overjoyed Jessica said “yes” and was able to celebrate the special occasion with her parents.

Jessica and Connor’s Loyola University Chapel wedding happened on a beautiful day this Spring.  With friends and family in abundance they tied the knot and took the wedding celebration to Pazo in downtown Baltimore’s, Harbor East.  With stunning flowers, delicious food (including a dark chocolate drizzled vanilla cake with golden glitter) and a beautiful couple the night was one for the books.

Laura and Chris met first in Chicago in 2002 while both attended college at Northwestern University where they became close friends.  After graduating Chris moved Baltimore and they lost touch.  Fate intervened when, in 2010, they reconnected on the streets of Annapolis and the relationship begin to bud.  After a brief time Laura moved to Baltimore to be with Chris.

On a cold day in January (having just missed the snow storm) Laura and Chris gathered with all those they are close with to celebrate.  Their ceremony and reception took place in the stunning George Peabody Library in down town Baltimore.  The beautiful classic ceremony was accented with pops of beautiful purple to pay homage to their Alma Mater.  The night finished with an amazing champagne saber toast.

Valentine's Day Wedding at the Lord Baltimore

Catharine Paules and Randy Bielski were married on Valentine’s Day at the historic Lord Baltimore.  Wanting a 1920’s vibe to her wedding, she found a vintage-feel strapless, trumpet style gown covered in lace.  Continuing the 1920’s feel, Catharine sported custom made black and mother of pearl embellished shoes from Emmy of London. The bridemaid’s dresses were from Bella Bridesmaids by Adrianna Papell and were black with silver sequins giving them a flapper-esque feeling.

Catharine and Randy chose the historic and newly renovated Lord Baltimore to continue their 1920’s theme.   Built in 1928, it provided the perfect backdrop for their Great Gatsby styled wedding.  The décor was an elegant gold, black, white and silver. Placed throughout the reception were Great Gatsby quotes in gold frames along with vintage postcards on which guests wrote their well wishes for the newlywed couple. And, at the end of the evening the bride and groom cut an art deco decorated cake by La Cakerie. Catering by Classic Catering.

 

Kelly and Tim have a special place to relax, have a drink, take in a sunset on the water; Castle Hill Inn, a favorite of Newport, Rhode Island. It’s there, on the lawn, that Tim took a knee for the biggest question of his life. It’s no surprise then that they picked the Evergreen Museum and Library in Baltimore, Maryland to host their wedding. It’s a place with an almost Versailles feel. A feeling they took full advantage of with an outdoor patio wedding with the Chuppha overlooking Evergreen’s garden.

For a photographer, the architecture and grounds lend themselves to every shot taken on a wedding day. Its walkways, its arches, its porches are always dreamy backdrops for the intimate journalistic frame as well as portraits large and small. And that is why the Evergreen Museum and Library is one of the most outstanding venues in Maryland.  The subtle touches of florist Fleur De Lis didn’t overpower but added a splashes of brightness and color to set off the ceremony. Out of the open air and into the night with a reception catered by one of Baltimore’s best Chef’s Expressions, celebration, dancing and joy hosted by the famous band Right On.

1
Shoes? Check. Dress? Check. Rings? Check. Looks like someone’s getting…
2
Just get some life-long loved ones together.
3
Gather those that mean the most and make them bring a Dress and a Tux.
4
Because this day is a celebration, a party in ones life like few others.
5
And where in Baltimore does one go for such a party? In their dresses and their tuxes, with their flowers and their adoration for one another? There are a few choices, definitely more than a couple.
6
But not many as photogenic, with all there is to love about Maryland as Harbor East and the Marriott Waterfront. There is nothing to a Marylander that signifies home, that warms the soul more than the sounds of boats gently rocking in the water, dinging, the chirp of gulls and the scent of salt in the air. Hold please while I slip on my Sperry’s.
7
Oh no, I gotta keep my tux on, just a bit longer to enjoy the elegance of a ballroom with pedestals and flowers and the photo, that one of many but that one of the bride, frozen in time, her dress in full flair as she moves down the aisle, all those who’ve come pause, taking a breath of the sublime.
8
Ahh, and now we can exhale, let loose and celebrate.
9
Celebrate the first day of the rest of our lives.
