Angela + Chris {married} | Belvedere Hotel Wedding | Living Radiant Photography | Baltimore Top 10 Wedding Photography

Yahh! This wedding is so fun for us to post. Let’s first start off saying that is was our first full greek traditional wedding we’ve photographed. But beyond that, everything in the day was amazing. The day started off with the wedding party and families getting ready at the Four Seasons hotel. We had gorgeous details and monogrammed goodness, we had so much fun photographing their personals.

Angela’s mom dressed her and Chris’ brother and dad helped him. With reveals with bridesmaids, dad and moms, these two went into their first look giddy, excited and anticipating the best! When Chris turned to see Angela, it was amazing. The nerves left and the two of them giggled, hugged and kissed and they both just admired each other. Within minutes a surprise showed up, their sweet dog. We love when fur babies show up to wedding days so we made sure to get those pics. Since our almost newlyweds opted for a first look, we were able to get all their iconic photos on the front end of the day! Wedding party and family were amazing to work with and we got to church on time and ready to get these two married. I loved the Greek ceremony with all its customs and important moments. Soon after announcing them as husband and wife, a bubble send-off with all guests as they cheered and celebrated our newlyweds! We surprised these guys with some drone photos since the church building was soo neat… a bucket list church to shoot at!

Christina + Jeremy {married} | Belvedere Hotel Wedding | Living Radiant Photography | Baltimore Top 10 Photographers

Dang, this is a bittersweet wedding for me. Not because of the couple, but because of the memories associated with this couple and their families. I met Christina back in 2017 at her sisters wedding. Amanda and Rob were the first couple to get married. Amanda is one of 3 sisters. Christina is the oldest, followed by Amanda and then Melissa. Melissa and Jon got married 2 years later, and we were asked again by this family to photograph their wedding day. We of course were honored and didn’t hesitate. Then 2 years later, Christina and Jeremy. How freakin’ awesome.

Corrine + Bradley {married} | The Belvedere Hotel Wedding | Living Radiant Photography | Baltimore Top 10 Wedding Photographers

What a wedding! Hands down, this was the coldest wedding day we had in 2021. It actually is in our top 5 for coldest wedding in 10 years. But Corrine and Bradley and their families were soooo awesome.

They could have said no way and had indoor photos at Belvedere but Corrine wanted the water and the city feel. They trusted us to get through their shot list. They huddled together behind the scenes. We photoshopped hair flys, the pink/purple in hands, but they kept smiles throughout all the segments. The whole day was lovely. Corrine and her girls got ready at her parents house on the water, while the guys got ready at a hotel in Baltimore. They did a first look on the Baltimore waterfront. They trusted us when we had to switch locations of where to do a first look and where all their portraits would be. The Four Seasons waterfront was a wind tunnel… it would have been a shipwreck of hair and dresses. Everyone including us would have been miserable. But we found a spot that would still capture Baltimore, the Domino Sugar sign, and the feel of a city with a waterfront. We weren’t escaping the high 30 degree temps,, but we did escape the 20+ mph wind that day on the waterfront.

Heather + Kahlil {married} | The Belvedere Hotel Wedding | Living Radiant Photography | Baltimore Top 10 Wedding Photography

I’ll never forget when Heather sat at my kitchen table in our new home and told leaned over to KC and told him she was going to have to cancel their next meeting. As in they had planned to meet another photographer that night after us, and decided not to. They booked us at our table that night and the rest is history! The only thing that could’ve made this wedding day better was if selfishly, we had done an engagement session with them because we didn’t feel like we had enough time with them on wedding day! These guys had a ton of guests, an awesome timeline, and were covered head to toe in love.

Amanda + Matt {married} | The Belvedere Hotel Weddings | Baltimore MD | Living Radiant Photography | Baltimore Top 10 Wedding Photographers | Baltimore’s Best

The day started at Hotel Revival, a really cool Parisian Hotel in Mount Vernon. The collage wall, holy moly, how gorgeous. I was so excited to know that the wedding party was getting ready there, followed by a really sweet first look on the greens of Mt Vernon, with some chill in the air and a slight breeze. 

When I walked into the room, Amanda was in the makeup chair, beaming. I was so excited to see our bride, and to know that she was so excited to see us was the best feeling. Seeing us made it feel more real she said, and we gave her a hug and got to work. Her details were beautiful, her dress stunning, and my personal favorite, the reveal with her dad. He gave her a music box, custom sound, a song from her childhood.

Phil + Jenny {married} | Loyola College + Belvedere Hotel Weddings | Living Radiant Photography | Baltimore’s Best Wedding Photographers

When I think about this wedding, all I can do is smile. I drove with our Bride and Groom, Jenny and Phil after their ceremony, just moments after saying I Do, and they just said “Thank You.” I’m like, guys, the day isn’t even over and besides, you JUST GOT MARRIED! Woot Woot! This day was such a gem for us this May. We had wedding after wedding of rain, which as you all can imagine, is a wrench thrown into months and months of planning for our couples and their vendors. Things shift day of and everyone has to roll with it. Well, every couple handles it differently and these guys just rolled with it. They didn’t really care what the rain would do to the day because they decided it wasn’t about the rain, the day was about the two of them enjoying their people, their family, and mainly each other. We have proof that they had a blast at their wedding. Even their guests had a ball! But let’s back the day up.

Ashley & Travis {married} | The McDonogh School | The Belvedere Hotel | Baltimore, MD

We are so excited to share the wedding of the newly married Travis and Ashley Holmes!

Not only did they get married at one of Maggie’s sentimental locations (The McDonogh School), but they also had a stunning weather day, amazing bridal party, and details galore! The Belevedere Hotel was their reception venue. Wait until you see this amazing venue!

Maggie met Travis when they started teaching at McDonogh almost 5 years ago. They were both first year teachers and they both were single at the time. Almost a year ago, we got an email from an Ashley Miller, and a Travis Holmes. Maggie was ectatic, because she knew that Travis Holmes had to be the same guy she taught with right out of college. Ashley and Travis have become dear friends of ours and we loved celebrating the day with them!
