Have you ever met someone and felt like you had been friends for a long time? Well, that’s how I felt with Allison and Joe. I had never met them before traveling to the Ellicott City courthouse to photograph their intimate wedding ceremony, but when I did finally shake their hands and give them a hug, I knew that this day was going to be special. These two sweethearts were surrounded by their immediate family and said their vows in the beautiful garden outside of the courthouse. Thinking back on this day, I remember getting misty-eyed as Allison said her vows through tears of joy. These two have been through so much together, including traveling all the way to Michigan from their native Arizona for grad school, and then again out here to good ol’ Maryland to pursue their careers. It was truly an honor to have been able to a be part of this special day!
Allison wore an heirloom ring and a beautiful Milamira Bridal gown sent all the way from Russia! Willow Oak Flower & Herb Farm based in Severn, MD created Allison’s stunning bouquet and Joe’s dashing boutonniere.
I couldn’t narrow down my favorites any more than I did, so I hope you enjoy this slightly-longer-than-normal post! 🙂
