It's not everyday that a potential client invites you to their home for your first meeting with them. Sam and Melissa live downtown in Baltimore in a super cute town home and it was there that is was "love at first site." We just clicked with these two and especially were approved by their sweet dog Cloud. We left their home with dog kisses on my legs from under the table.
These two had a beautiful outdoor Belmont Manor wedding with a tent reception surrounded by many family and friends. With a sweet guest count of a little under 100, 2 ring dogs with floral leashes, and a 4 person total bridal party, this wedding was nothing short of intimate and personal.
Melissa and Sam beamed all day. The smiles, the laughter, even the details reflected their humor, their personalities, and the things they love. Some of my personal favorites were the bride and groom flamingos, the oyster bar, the garland throughout the tent, the wine selection (Sams favorite), the postcard memory book, Baltimore townships such as Roland Park and Federal Hill, and of course, the family dogs who walked the rings down the aisle - Cloud and Uncle Spencer (who is her parents favorite child).
Anything that went wrong on the wedding day, Melissa and Sam remained unchanged. They were excited to get married and weren't going to let anything ruin it. Today was the day they had waited for and planned so much for.
Sam and Melissa, congrats lovebirds! We are so excited to share this with the world today. What a fabulous day! Love you guys! Can't wait to double date (with or without Cloud)!
