Chelsea and Matt: Engaged!!

There is so much I love about my job, but the best part is meeting new people. On many occasions, these new friends inspire me. Chelsea and Matt definitely did that when we went out to Patapsco last week for their engagement session. They were telling me all about their adorable dogs and, naturally, I was curious about when they got them. They told me that they agreed to pet-sit a little pit bull puppy, mainly to make some extra money for the wedding they’re planning. Not far into their two week commitment, they realized that the sweet puppy was in distress and wasn’t being treated well, so they took him to the vet, had him treated, and eventually adopted him. This just amazed me!! Here they were thinking they could make a little money, but instead, they ended up spending a whole bunch of money and taking on a huge responsibility just out of the goodness of their hearts! I loved hearing everything about Chelsea and Matt’s story – including the fact that they couldn’t stand each other when they first met!! Clearly, that’s all changed now, as has so much in their lives. I’m so glad to have these new friends and I can’t wait to see what’s next in their story… a wedding, for one thing! :-)

Congratulations, Chelsea and Matt!!!!! Can’t wait to be there next spring!!

– Becky

Stone Manor Country Club Wedding: Eileen & Justin

When I pulled up to Stone Manor for Justin & Eileen’s wedding, two things concerned me. First, it had already started to mist and everything indicated that heavier rains were coming. Second, and far more importantly, no one was there. There was a single car in the driveway but as I searched the property, I certainly couldn’t find any evidence of it’s owner. I was terrified that I had the date wrong; I arrived on Friday and maybe it was supposed to be a Saturday wedding?  Worse, I was afraid that I had the wrong location!!! I was 30 minutes early, so I figured I had some time to get somewhere else if I could just figure out where it was I should be! :-)

Fortunately, it all worked out. Turns out that Eileen is just the most laid back bride EVER and pulled up a few moments after my panic set it. She nonchalantly walked up to her room, totally ready to pull on her dress, lace up her Chuck Taylor’s, and head out to the ceremony site to marry Justin. :-) This is by far the most relaxed wedding I’ve ever photographed – it was simply about saying vows and celebrating with friends and family.

And as for the mist… Well, first I have to say how impressed I was with Brian and his team at Stone Manor!!  They fully prepared TWO ceremony sites, one outdoors and one inside the reception tent. This allowed Eileen to make her decision at the very last second. Winds were blowing and leaves swirling as she made her way out to the ceremony site, but by some grace, rain held off not only through the ceremony but all the way through family, wedding party, and bride&groom photos. The clouds only let loose once everyone was cozy inside the reception tent.

A perfect wedding day :-)

So many great photos down here from Jay Carbonella… great friend and amazing photographer!!

I love this… heels, hose, and a beautifully tailored dress, but still willing to play.

 

 

There was some photobombing during the family session… but someone needed to tell this groomsmen that a photobomber doesn’t give himself away!!
