‘Evergreen House’

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.

Weddings, guys in tuxes, gals in dresses, mother-in-laws-to-be, churches, receptions, drinks, food, dancing, repeat. Yet sometimes, the passion and uniqueness really shines through. Sometimes, as an editor I open the files and think men in tuxes, women in dresses. And then it unfolds…

Nabely and Mike getting married are just that. First a bride and groom getting ready for a wedding (this happens thousands of times a Saturday). And then just how beautiful Nabely is begins to shine through, how excited and in love she is begins to appear as she becomes comfortable with the camera. This, this happens a lot. It’s our job as photographers, get the bride and then the groom comfy, get them used to us, and then capture it all as they celebrate.

Then there is Mike. It’s a Saturday in the world and there is a guy in a tux making one of the biggest commitments of his life. Sometimes, in a groom, you can see their awareness of the gravity of the decision.

As I continued editing this wedding there were many amazing things that made the day shine. The Basilica of Mt. Vernon, an absolutely beautiful cathedral, and a reception at the Evergreen, a Historic beautiful building that’s also a Museum and Library on a chunk of land maintained for the purpose of being seen. The right touches of Southern significance and classy shabby chic in both the venue and the details. At the Evergreen, with an amazing catering provided by Taliya at Linwoods; flowers by Wicked Willow, Lighting by Event Dynamics and all coordinated by Becky Vanderbeck at Simply Chic, you really just couldn’t go wrong.

As the images move on we learn a few things. We learn the bride is really funny and very excited to marry Mike. But of Mike we see his boyish excitement, his love for his friends and more than anything, we see his charm. We can see in the pictures the charm and honest love that Mike stole Nabely’s heart, and leaving her no choice but to steal his last name.
