My beautiful Aunt Bev married her best friend and love of her life, Ferd, in early November at the historical Waverly Mansion in Baltimore, Maryland. Leading up to the wedding, as I heard all details that Bev and my mom (Bev's sister and wedding planner) were planning, I couldn't wait to see it all come together. The mansion was full of stunning antique accents and allure, creating the perfect backdrop for this vintage, Autumn inspired day. Capturing a day like this for someone so unbelievably close to my heart was an honor. Joining me in in capturing this day was my dear friend and Amy of C Studios. Amy came to this day with her fresh, creative eye and captured some true, descriptive and memorable images. Thank you Amy for sharing your warm heart and unbelievable vision to this day, for our family.
Bev's Monique Lhuillier lace gown was incredibly romantic, feminine and totally made for this beautiful bride!
This incredible vintage bracelet was Bev's Grandmother's (and my Great Grandmother's). From the same jewelry collection, I inherited an incredible ring a few years ago that I wore in my family's honor.
I love this moment that happened just after Bev's daughters helped her get into her gown. Their happiness for their mother was evident the whole day.
Bev and Ferd had their moment of reveal in a quiet, private area of the homestead. The moment Ferd turned around to see her, his expression said it all.
Amy captured this shot, one of my most favorite shots of the day!
Favorite shot of the day!
Amy captured a few shots with me and my beautiful Aunt while we were shooting the family portraits. Love her!
As the ceremony approached, guests entered into the tent while Jonathan accompanied two of my cousins who sang songs handpicked by Bev and Ferd.
Every part of the day was arranged and pieced together by close family members, they created such a beautiful atmosphere. A candy bar is always a good idea!
Families and friends from from both sides of the wedding came together for a big celebration and danced the whole time! And yes, there I was, dancing with my dad!
