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.



Congratulations Nabely and Mike.

This has been an endless summer of sunny weekends, perfect for the wedding of Emily and Drew at the 1840’s Plaza near Baltimore’s ever-budding Inner Harbor.
The “Upper Garden” of the 1840’s is a truly unique urban courtyard. The guests, seated in the shade of trees that sprout from the red brick patio, watched the ceremony of Emily in her Betsy Robinson wedding dress as she wed Drew under the 1840’s trellis. Chinese lanterns dotted the trees, flower petals covered the aisle. The trellis, with flowers and greenery of the garden wall, became a wonderful backdrop for formal photos.
After the ceremony, the party moved to the plaza. Surrounded by manicured gardens along wrought Iron fencing and the towering elegance of the red brick Fava building and it’s stunning array of 8 foot windows.
As the sun began to set, the event moved to the fourth floor ballroom. Surrounded by hand-painted murals, the room was filled with an era of elegance. Revelers could enjoy the sweeping views of the Harbor. The beauty of the room was accented with bright and exciting floral arrangements from Crimson and Clover. The dining tables dressed spectacularly in the linens of Gala Cloths by Dulany Noble. All for an always incredible Linwoods dinner.
Whats a dinner without dancing in the ballroom? And what a great space for dancing. But what is a wedding without the cake? There was once a time when wedding cakes, well, they just weren’t that great. But that time has long since past and Emily and Drew were treated to the fabulous confection of Linwoods.
To end the evening in style these newlyweds set off from the ballroom and into the plaza with an exit in arms, arms of sparklers –because every wedding night leads to fireworks.
The couple chose to remember the day with custom designed photo album.
