Christina & Kevin Antrim 1844

Wedding Photographers in Taneytown

Dusting off the ol' blog to bring you Christina and Kevin's GORGEOUS wedding at Antrim 1844 in Taneytown, Maryland. This was our first big wedding of 2021... the first one that truly felt normal after the year of COVID, and it couldn't have been a better day! After their big wedding turned into a "minimony" last year, their day this year was an opportunity to renew their vows and have the big celebration with all their friends and family. The day was filled with so much happiness, love, and DANCING. Seriously, I don't think we've seen a dance floor that full and with SO much energy in a long time. It was incredible to witness, and we are so happy that we got to capture it! Christina and Kevin, thank you so much for allowing us to be at your wedding celebration. You two are so wonderful, and even though the wait was probably VERY long - you did it! And with incredible style <3.  Some fun moments from the day! Kevin & Christina are high school sweethearts and met on the dance floor at homecoming! Making the dance floor a very important place for them :P. Christina choreographed her and Kevin's first dance. They received a standing ovation after that dance! Christina's something old was a beautiful gold ring from her grandmother. Kevin & Christina's grandmothers served as their flower ladies!  Christina's cousin, Faith, baked THE most beautiful cake we've ever seen...

Samantha & John

A Rustic Wedding at Shoemaker Homestead

I think I'm still in shock from Sam and John's beautiful wedding at Shoemaker Homestead. I just cannot get over how the weather forecast predicted 100% chance of thunderstorm for the time the ceremony was to start. I know the Weather Channel can very often be wrong, but the color of the sky in the morning was matching what a storm would look like, so I was a bit worried. However, when Shawn and I arrived and walked in to greet Sam, she was so positive and happy. The weather seriously couldn't put a damper on the fact that she was marrying her best friend. Not only was she positive, but Sam also was prepared. She read up on advice that I shared about having a rain plan and bought some super cute umbrellas from Ikea. I'm convinced that when you think happy thoughts (and spend a bunch of money on rain gear) the weather will completely change it's mind and be gorgeous. That's exactly what happened for Sam and John and I couldn't have been more ecstatic that they didn't need to change any aspect of their wedding plan. Not only was the weather on point, but the emotions within this day were on a whole different level. No one could keep a dry eye throughout the day. Tears were shed while Sam was getting ready, since her dress was the same dress that her mother wore almost 30 years ago. And there was no shortage of feelings from...

Samantha & John's Engagement Spotlight

Shoemaker Homestead

I have been waiting for this day ever since I met with Sam and John a full year ago! These two are the absolute sweetest, and they are getting married tomorrow at one of the prettiest locations, Shoemaker Homestead. Shawn and I got the pleasure to see their gorgeous wedding location during their engagement session, and I was just blown away. There are horses, a beautiful barn and gardens that have the most colorful flowers. If you want to check out their full engagement session feel free to head over to their original blog post. It is truly going to be amazing to see this homestead all ready for Sam and John to be married. Tomorrow is going to look like it's totally out of a magazine! Getting to know these two and their location over the course of their e-session was one of my greatest joys. It really did make this waiting game for tomorrow almost impossible. Leading up to this day, I do have to mention how incredibly organized Sam has been as a bride. I mean, she has been on top of her timeline and her family group shots, which is rare. It's been a total dream to have this super sweet bride keep us in the loop with everything. We get to attend and shoot a little bit of their rehearsal tonight, and I cannot even begin to describe how excited I am to see these two again and meet their families! If their families are...
