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.

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.
