Oh man, this wedding is so fun to share with you all today! First off, I met Lexi, mother of the bride years ago at the Cloisters at a bridal show. Lexi is a wedding planner here in Baltimore, who I’ve had the privilege of working alongside, educating brides with, and also building a friendship with. Super thankful for my relationship with her and just wanted to start off saying that. Prior to meeting Creason, I actually met her sister who I did senior photos for and once Creason got engaged, we were soo excited and honored when Creason and Caleb (and Lexi) asked us to be their wedding photographers! I’m always so honored when a vendor hires us for their daughter or sons wedding, considering she works with so many other talented photographers too.
The day was so full! And by full I mean non-stop for us. We knew going into the day that this wedding may take the cake for most organized photos ever. Like ever. But we were ready for it, and so were the families of our couple. The morning was awesome, relaxed and Creason got ready on site at Dulany’s Overlook. The bridal parties were awesome, friendly and full of laughs. Once dressed in her stunning gown, Creason did a dad reveal with her dad which was soo emotional for everyone… mom, dad, sister, Creason. Phew. Following the dad reveal, we headed out front of the manor house where Caleb would see Creason for the first time.
We knew rain was coming, just not sure how much so we quickly had all bridal party head outside to meet us in the rose gardens and fields. If you’ve never been to Dulany’s Overlook, they have this really beautiful area of Roses… maybe my favorite place to do portraits now at that venue! Patrick and I rocked through bridal party separates and group photos prior to the rain coming… and of course when it did come, the groomsmen took full advantage of singing and dancing in the rain with our umbrellas… we have proof! We luckily had a location indoor to finish family photos which worked out perfectly prior to ceremony. With a low percentage of rain, Creason and Caleb opted to get married outside and we are soo glad they did. The overcast skies made for a beautiful filter on everyone… gorgeous ceremony!
The rest of the day was a blast! These two got married, cheered and walked out of ceremony MARRIED into a beautiful cocktail hour in the lower level of the reception barn. With great food by Eleven Courses, a polaroid guest book, and yard games, guests got to relax and gear up for a crazy dance party. The night was fun. With beautiful speeches by parents and siblings, an incredible sunset, and sweet parent dances, the evening erupted with loud singing and dancing that moved the barn.
Caleb and Creason, what a day. We loved being there, documenting all your people, all your details, and ultimately your love for each other. We are so excited for whats to come for you both!
