Kristen and Kris were married in a traditional church ceremony at St. William of York Catholic followed by a reception at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Md. on June 8.  “They planned one of the most unique and fun wedding days I have ever been a part of,” Brittani Croft of Britt Croft Photography said. “They did a great job prioritizing their faith and choosing a sacred ceremony space, while also showing their guests a true glimpse into their colorful personalities.” The bride wore a v-neck tea-length wedding gown with short sleeves, accessorized with her hair in an updo, finger-tip length veil, and a pair of peep-toe slingbacks, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a tie. Bridesmaids wore short yellow chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses, gerber daisies, berries, and dusty millers. Guests were greeted with a kraft paper bag filled with local trivia and treats. Once the exchanging of vows were sealed with a kiss, it was official! They exited out as everyone waved ribbons wands in the air. “The American Visionary Art Museum was one of the coolest venues I have ever shot in,” she said. “From the prime location, being just across from Federal Hill and the Inner Harbor, to the sculptures, gardens, exposed brick, and art displayed throughout, there was already so many great things for the eye to explore.” Tables were decorated with gray linens, white napkins, mason jar centerpieces, and votive candles, surrounded by folding padded chairs. Notice the paper pom poms hanging from the ceiling too? “My favorite element was their beautiful cake and the fabric backdrop behind it,” Croft said. “Their sweet bunting topper turly was the icing on it. . . the day really came together just as Kristen and Kris hoped.”

Real Wedding at the Evergreen House in Baltimore

Posted by ddrenner on Jul 20, 2011
Alexia and Neil’s had a beautiful June wedding at the Evergreen House in Baltimore. Their ceremony was outside on a wide lawn behind the mansion and their reception was held in the Evergreen Carriage House. One of the highlights of the wedding came after the ceremony, when the couple made their way through an arch of swords,  a tradition for Navy weddings where the couple must kiss to “pay” for passage past each pair of swords.  The last Naval officer in the arch gives the bride a little swap in the rear end  and hearty cheer of  “welcome to  the Navy!”

Real Wedding – Emilee + Jason

Emilee & Jason
April 2011
Baltimore, Maryland

From the Photographer: “This wedding was EPIC! Jason & Emilee had a hindu ceremony, starting with a traditional baraat (groom’s processional), where the groom rode a horse to the ceremony site, and then celebrated with his family and friends outside, complete with an indian drummer, and bagpiper (a surprise nod to Emilee’s scottish heritage). Following the hindu ceremony, the couple changed into western attire for more photos, and a reception where the groom surprised his lovely bride with a surprise visit from Poe, the Baltimore Ravens mascot! It was an amazing day, from start to finish!” – Meghan Lynn Photography
