Christine & Matt ‘s Maryland Summer Wedding

December 16, 2022

Christine and Matt’s Maryland summer wedding was another great one for the books and because we are in the dead of winter, it’s making me dream of the warmer days and the summer light I love to chase.

Christine and Matt booked me a little late in the year, so I was actually already booked, but I had a great feeling about them so I moved forward with a zoom call to learn more about them and their day. I know I say that you want to book your favorite photographer ASAP, and I still will always encourage a newly engaged couple to do exactly that, but in this case I’m so glad I made an exception.

I instantly fell in love with her.

When I met them both for their engagement session that was just the icing on the cake and confirmation that my gut feeling was more than right about these two. So, yes, book early, but also, shoot your shot! You never know what can happen! šŸ˜‰

Maryland Summer Wedding Day

Christine and Matt were married on their property on a perfect Maryland Summer day. You could see just how much hard work and love had been put into not only their special day, but their forever. 

They had THE BEST group and when I tell you I haven’t heard a better DJ, I mean it! Hands down in all of my wedding days I’ve not had a better DJ (sorry to my DJ friends for this, you’re still awesome!).

I was obsessed with their vision and to see it come to life, especially that Ceremony spot. Oh my heavens talk about perfect. Every inch of their property was laid out and designed to keep their guests first priority. Talk about having servant’s hearts!

The love and care these two have for one another and their loved ones just radiates and it’s one of the things I love most about them. Not having met them and being a “stranger” they still made me feel like we’d known each other for years and there wasn’t anything they wouldn’t do for me. The same goes for me to them.

When you find your people it’s like pieces of your heart are just put together and getting to know these two and spend their day with them, man, my cup just overflows.

The food was incredible, the company was incredible, the entire day was incredible! Thank you both for such a beautiful Maryland summer wedding to capture and enjoy!
