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!
The wedding and reception were held in the beautiful and historic 1840’s Ballroom in downtown Baltimore. Gorgeous!
A stunning dress for a stunning bride!
When I arrived to start shooting Leigh getting ready, she was calm and excitedly chatting with the ladies closest to her.
Jared and Leigh decided to write each other a note to be read prior to the wedding ceremony.
Jared wrote Leigh a poem. Amazing.
Leigh’s sweet sister, Erin, was a most beautiful Maid of Honor.
Jennifer, one of Leigh’s best friends was in charge of her gorgeous makeup!
Leigh, you are stunning and pure elegance!
Now for the stylish guys!
Jared has such a fantastic sense of style. Love it!
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.
Jared’s letter to Leigh and her letter to him…
Reading Leigh’s sweet letter…
Vows and bands!
Here comes the bride!
So beautiful, Erin!
Just before her grand entrance. I love this moment of you, Leigh!
Husband & Wife!
Such a handsome bridal party!
You two! Gorgeous!
Such joy together!
Vintage windows were used as seating charts!
Each place setting had a different set of antique china! So beautiful and creative.
Throughout the day, but especially during the toasts, could you tell how much these siblings love and admire each other.
A sweet cake cutting and then…let the dancing begin!
So much excitement and FUN!
A festive glow-stick farewell…
Congratulations, Leigh and Jared! It was a pleasure to capture such an elegant day!
