Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park Wedding | Baltimore Wedding Photographer

I don’t even know where to begin when talking about this wedding. I could write a book about this couple and this day. Rachael and Adrian met in Fire Island, NY over the 4th of July three years ago. After realizing that they lived close to each other in the DC/Baltimore area, they began dating. Their story is the kind that people look for their whole lives, waiting quietly while hoping to meet “the one.”

But these two, they found each other. When Rachael initially reached out to me, she told me that for their wedding, they were looking to marry Adrian’s classical east coast style with her bohemian west coast style. Immediately, I got excited. “classical” “West Coast” and “Bohemian” are all words that inspire me. I think that these two totally succeeded in doing just that. This wedding was gorgeous from start to finish. The open air venue made me feel like I was in Tuscany, while still highlighting the beauty of a Maryland fall.

In the stillness of their October day, Rachael and Adrian committed their lives to each other in front of 80 of their closest friends and family. I truly hope that my work reflects this incredibly gorgeous day and this special couple. This one was special. Check it out below.
