Heyhey! How is everybody doing? I've been a busy wedding shooting bee this summer and have a few weddings I can't wait to show you all. In case you're ever curious what I'm up to when I'm not posting on my blog do check out my Twitter. I love posting sneak peeks and funny stories from the weddings I shoot. So, what are you waiting for? Follow me!

This wedding took place at the lovely Union Mills Homestead in Westminster, MD. I had never been there before and it was just beautiful. Not to mention I think I really did fall in love with the wedding party and guests. I stalled a good 20 minutes at the end of my contracted time because I didn't want to leave. And once I did leave I felt like I hadn't just done my job but that I had also made friends. That's the best.

Before I get a hundred emails about where these girls got their dresses from I'll just tell you here: the one and only Anthropologie! Beautiful, right?

Tyler and Jessica went detail crazy for their reception. I was in heaven!

The favors were tea bags from Baltimore, MD. Haha I suddenly felt very far away from home.

Tyler and Jessica flew out their friend Jeff Alfiero from Nashville (where they now live together) to play during the reception. Can I just say live music is incredibly superior to any sort of mix at a reception? Or, forget a reception, anywhere for that matter! He played/sang for 4 hours straight - no sheet music, no lyrics. And he even took one of my requests! I was very impressed. Jeff, if you're reading this, you made my night.

Tyler is an incredibly talented musician himself. He composed much of the music for the wedding!

Tyler & Jess - You two are a wonderful couple. Thank you for having me on the first day of your life together. I wish you the very best forever and always.

Wow! I just booked this venue over the weekend and I am so glad to see the possibilities! Where did the bride get her dress from, it is gorgeous!

Does anyone have contact information for that venue? Their website does not mention anything about weddings.

I believe you need to contact Jane Sewell, Executive Director, at 410-848-2288 if you'd like to schedule an event on the property :)

Does anyone know where they may have rented these chairs? Can't find wooden ones anywhere!
