You wanted a summer wedding, now be mindful of your guests. The heat can be dangerous, especially when there is a lack of water. Make sure your guests, caterers, wedding photographers, and DJs stay hydrated by providing access to coolers of water bottles or constant water service. Again, utilize your wedding favors as a mini survival kit for your guests by adding a small bottle of water to the arrangement. Wedding accessories often include personalized water bottle labels that you can add to the bottles so that they match the rest of your wedding decorations. Don’t forget that you and your groom stay hydrated throughout the day too! Also providing parasols or paper fans can help in the sweltering heat.
This was a sweet albeit large wedding at Horticulture Center. The ceremony was draped off in the main room as the chilly weather warranted indoors. The soft colors and tons of candle light made this a favorite wedding of ours.
This wedding was EPIC, y’all. I flew up to Baltimore, Maryland in mid-April on a picture-perfect weekend to capture these two lovebirds tie the knot:
I first met Bernadette while studying abroad in Sydney, Australia during college. From our first conversation miles away from both of our homes, we pretty much clicked and spent a lot of time together. I couldn’t have been MORE thrilled when she asked me to shoot her wedding (I think I did a happy jig/dance while talking to her on the phone — not exaggerating!). : )
I’m so happy she met Casey in Baltimore; they couldn’t be more perfect for each other. My favorite part of their wedding day was simply witnessing how they looked at each other. It melted my heart from behind the camera, that’s for sure. They got married at Old St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, and the GORGEOUS reception was held at the Four Seasonsin Harbor East. I think Baltimore is my new favorite city… at least, the harbor views left me breathless. ; )
Coming away from this wedding, the beauty of it and feelings from it leave me without words. It really was a perfect day. Everyone had a smile on their face the ENTIRE time! Let me get to the photos because I had SO many favorites. Bernadette & Casey, y’all know I love you guys and wish you a lifetime of happiness and FUN!
