There was so much positive energy at Vanessa and Ash’s wedding, the bridal party was full of energy and I enjoyed being around and documenting the day through my lens. The day started at Royal Sonesta Baltimore located in downtown Baltimore with a nice view of the water. We took some getting ready pictures of both the bride and groom at the hotel and did their first look at the lobby. After the first look, we went to Federal Hill for some portraits with the bride, groom and bridal party. The ceremony took place at Martin’s West. Side note, I think its very important that couples pay attention to booking great wedding venues to ensure their ceremony is all they dream it will be. Their friends and family were looking vibrant at the ceremony which started with the family and bridal party walking into the ceremony to a slow song. The groom, Ash walked in afterward and the lovely bride Vanessa walked in with her dad. It was such an amazing moment to see Vanessa tearing up at the sight of Ash. The ceremony was short, with a lot of emphasis from the priest on the importance of marriage and standing by each other no matter how good or bad life gets. After the sermon, there was a quick ring exchange, and these two were officially married. We had some time to take some portraits of the bride and groom inside the reception hall before the guests started trooping in which then started the dancing and merriment. I loved photographing Vanessa and Ash and I wish them the longest of marriage and the best.
Enjoy some of the pictures from the ceremony below.
If you’re getting married this year and looking for a wedding photographer in the Baltimore area or beyond, I would love to work with you to create images that would take you down memory lane.
