Leigh & Jared : Married.

There is just something unique and special about winter weddings. A chill in the air, a few snow flakes falling…magic! Leigh and Jared said “I do!” on just such a day this past week, and I was most honored to capture their amazing occasion. These two are so in love and so grounded in their faith…it blows me away (and makes for some fantastic photos! :))! With just a few months to plan their wedding, I shot their engagement pictures just over a month before the big day! Though I had known both Jared and Leigh previously, I loved getting to know them more (during the shoot) in the orchard and realized what an amazing pair they were…even more amazing together! Their wedding day was nothing short of spectacular, filled with personal touches, a gorgeous Baltimore city backdrop, loving family and friends, and a lifetime commitment between two wonderful people. Jared and Leigh, you have been an inspiration to me and I wish you both a lifetime full of blessings and joy! Much Love!

Both Jared and his brother Luke, had the bible verse 2 Timothy 1:7 embroidered inside their custom suit jackets:

 “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”

In addition, Jared included the word “Phobos” and Luke had “Deimos” – two sons of the God Ares and two moons of the red planet, Mars.
