If you can recall last weekend’s weather it was HOT! The humidity was ever present with a chance of thunderstorms was in Saturday’s afternoon forecast. The storm the night before left much of the Baltimore area without electricity. Early on in the planning, Corinne made a decision to have their wedding indoors instead of their original plan to have the wedding in their backyard. I think we were all thankful for the decision of an indoor wedding with the heat that was present. Thankfully the church and reception had its electricity on. I first meet Corinne at the church and started shooting her details. Her beautiful soft and graceful wedding dress fit perfectly for her first look and portrait location on a farm about one mile down the road from the church. As soon as Corinne slipped into her wedding dress she was ready to see John who was already waiting at the farm with his groomsmen.
At Belvedere Farm John waited patiently with a huge smile on his face. He could not wait to see his bride!!! As John waited he adjusted his tie and jacket and polished his shoes one more time. He had been waiting five years for this day! As they turned around to see one another both of their smiles reflected the love and excitement they have for one another. Both of them withstood the heat with out melting and looked amazing in the 100 plus degree weather. We not only captured their portraits at the farm, but also their family portraits with a classic 1941 Packard! Corinne’s father is a true blacksmith by trade and completely restore this car by himself.
We made it to the church just in time for John and Corinne to become husband and wife. They confessed that their first love is Jesus who saved their lives and committed to love one another they way God has first loved them. Throughout the day Corinne and John both smiled and laughed together. It is a gift they give one another and it will be a blessing as they start their new journey as husband and wife.
John and Corinne were surround by family and friends who loved them and who they loved. The reception was inside and filled with Corinne’s vision of DIY projects that she quickly acknowledge and thanked many friends and family who helped create each detail. At the end of the night Corinne and John rode off in the 1941 Packard as husband and wife!
