On Saturday, Emily & Greg said ‘I Do’ and became husband and wife! After months of planning, the day unfolded perfectly! We started shooting at the hotel in Frederick, MD prior to the ceremony. Emily was busy making sure the final details were in place, all while singing along to her favorite love songs with her favorite people! She and her bridesmaids were in ‘wedding mode’ and the sense of excitement and anticipation was overwhelming! It was the ideal start to her day! Meanwhile, Josh met the boys downstairs where they were watching football, drooling over their orange Oakley sunglasses, and prepping for the events ahead.
The ceremony took place at St. John’s Catholic Church in downtown, Frederick! It was so exciting for me to finally photograph a wedding in the church where I made my first communion! St. John’s is absolutely stunning and the ceremony was beautiful! Emily and Greg involved a lot of friends and family in their ceremony. They also chose all the readings and really personalized it as much as they could. It was very special to them and you could tell how much they loved every minute of it!
As we finished with family photos and headed over to Holly Hills Country Club for the reception, I noticed the threatening clouds and had a sinking feeling the weather wouldn’t cooperate for our outdoor portraits. However, we all remained hopeful and it paid off! We had an amazing overcast sky for portraits out front of the country club! We had a lot of fun with different poses and props. Then, it was time to ride the golf carts to the covered bridge! This location looked like it was straight out of a fairytale. It fit Emily & Greg’s love perfectly!!
The reception was SO much fun! A jazz quartet played during dinner and afterwards, the dance floor really heated up! The Bride and Groom sure knew how to throw a great party!
Emily & Greg – thank you so much for allowing me to capture your day. We had a wonderful time with you, your family, and your guests! I hope you have a fantastic honeymoon and that you love the preview of your images below!
Emily’s smile was radiant – and contagious!
Looking dapper there, Greg!
Their version of a ‘First Look’! They were able to hold hands and steal a moment together without actually seeing each other! I LOVED it!
Just after Greg departed, Emily donned her veil and completed her bridal look! I love this sweet moment between her and her mom!
The dance floor was rock ‘n all night!
