Maryland Wedding

Alicia + David | Pond View Farm Wedding

This wedding was oh so special to me. I grew up with Alicia, our families went to the same church. I've been on mission trips, youth group trips and even did summer camp with Alicia. To say I was honored to photograph her marrying her soulmate last Sunday would be an understatement. 

Alicia + David tied the knot on a rainy day at Pond View Farm. The venue is SO beautiful and thankfully the rain held off enough for us to snag some awesome portraits. Alicia + David had infectious smiles all day long. Joy was in the air and I was so grateful to be a part of this celebration! 

I loved the special touches throughout the day. There's nothing like hand written notes, your dad being your best man and tearful first looks. Check out this stunning wedding below! 

As always, thank you Jonathan for capturing gorgeous photos throughout the day!

Lauryn + Ian | Backyard Wedding in New Germany State Park

Lauryn + Ian are two of the sweetest people I've ever met. They tied the knot this past weekend at Lauryn's childhood home tucked in the woods of New Germany State Park. A perfect backdrop - I know! Lauryn + Ian grew up together and their families have been friends for years. Not until a few years back did they realize the other was there all along. Such a sweet story that matched their beautiful personalities. 

The forecast was unfortunately 100% rain all day long. Their property was stunning (you'll see) and I was praying we'd get a break in the weather to capture some portraits. It rained their entire ceremony but I loved their rain plan - umbrellas. The day was filled with such joy that the rain didn't even matter. 

Thank you for allowing me and Jonathan to photograph your special day, guys! We are so grateful. Scroll for their cuteness!

Carolyn + Joseph | Philadelphia Mormon Temple Wedding

I love all my couples equally, but what I love even more is when the love between them is SO apparent. That was definitely the case for Carolyn + Joseph. They got married May 5, 2018 at the Philadelphia Mormon Temple. From the moment they stepped out of temple with their hands in the air and smiles plastered across their faces, I knew we were going to have a great day celebrating their love for each other and the Lord. Everyone swarmed them with hugs + love as soon as they came outside and I think that's a testament to how wonderful they are as people. 

Jonathan and I had so much fun photographing them all over the beautiful grounds of the temple. I know we were both smiling behind our cameras the entire time. One of Joseph's brothers couldn't make the wedding because he was in London on a mission but rest assured, he was there in spirit. He was also there by way of a cardboard cut out - yeah, it was creative + hilarious! Don't scroll past those family photos! 

Fast forward to their reception which was held at the Westminster Riding Club in Maryland. Carolyn crushed the details + decor and you'll be drooling over the dessert table for sure! They partied all night long with their family and friends dancing and having the best of times! I am so incredibly grateful Jonathan and I got to be a part of such an incredible wedding day! Carolyn + Joseph deserve all the happiness in the world! 

Always thankful for Jonathan shooting alongside me!
