We have been looking forward to this wedding day for over a year since we photographed this couples engagement session in Baltimore at the Inner Harbor and Loyola College! See those photos here if you like: blog.wrhphotography.com/inner-harbor-loyola-university ! But on this fall day, we met the couple at their individual childhood homes for getting ready among family, friends, and dogs! With all the details in place, we made our way just down the road to Our Lady of the Lake Church in Verona for a touching marriage ceremony. Though it rained from morning through night we still had a chance to hop over to Verona Park (and later that night outside the Westmount) for some beautiful couple portraits and group photos for the family and bridal party. The reception at the Westmount Country Club began with touching dances and speeches and quickly transitioned to an amazing party as the night continued on. We had a blast photographing this wedding in our candid style and hope you enjoy scrolling through just some of our favorite photos below.
Sometimes we have to search for the perfect spot to hang the wedding dress, but some days it is already set up perfectly!
A kiss on the cheek from her niece and then a quick photo at the other daughter of the family – this adorable pups!
One of the most emotional card readings we have photographed, tears literally dripping onto the words of her soon to be husband.
With the wind and rain, it took a combined effort to get into the church with the wedding dress still perfect!
We always take photos from the “traditional” angles of all the big events of the ceremony but especially during a full mass we have plenty of time to capture all those little moments that might go missed with everything going on.
A burst of emotion as the guests piled out of the Lady of our Lake Church to greet the newly married couple!
We still managed to take a bunch of photos at Verona Park right across the road from the church despite the wind and rain on this wedding day!
The groomsmen and bridesmaids photos at the Westmount Country Club and then some of the ballroom and wedding cake!
Tears rolling down the brides cheek as she had her first dance with her father at the Westmount Country Club.
Toasts by the maid of honor and best man gave rise to an amazing party complete with the flower girl catching some air.
Right before cake cutting, everyone the room enjoyed a slideshow showing the pair as they grew up and then eventually met and fell in love!
The cutting of the cake ending with a kiss and then even more dancing as the dessert was served.
We always love grabbing the couple for some night photos when there is an opportunity during the reception. We think this pair of images, made even more magical by the rain, was well worth the few minutes of standing outside!
