Photographing weddings is so fun, but it turns out, being a wedding guest is also pretty great!
Two weekends ago, two of our closest friends tied the knot! So this time, it was my turn to be a wedding guest! I was so fortunate that I was able to take the evening off and celebrate with Kristina and Allyn. Before the wedding, I got to hang out with Kristina and her bridesmaids and photograph them having fun and getting ready together! After that, I got to sit back, relax, and enjoy myself as a wedding guest!
The whole day was absolutely perfect! It was warm, sunny, and the rain even held off until later in the night. Kristina and Allyn said their "I do's" at Camp Wright in Stevensville, MD. The ceremony location was in a beautifully shaded area next to the water, that had a great view of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. They were surrounded with many of their friends and family who were so happy to watch these two become one. The rest of the evening consisted of LOTS of dancing and lots of laughs. It was such a fun night celebrating the newlyweds!
Congratulations Kristina and Allyn!
I am loving the trend of bridesmaids choosing their style of the dress, but all matching in the same color. And Kristina's dress...it was absolutely perfect for her!
The Airbnb that Kristina and her bridesmaids got ready at was ah-mazing. Pretty much a photographer's dream getting ready location with lots of windows, white walls, and a big bed!
Instead of the traditional matching robes or shirts, they all had these awesome dresses to get ready in! What made them so awesome? They were super soft...and had pockets! Perfect for staying cute and comfy while getting ready for the big day.
These two adorable flower girls were just so smitten with Kristina and doing anything they could to help her get all done up for the big day. Just wait until you see their faces during their first look!
All of the girls helped Kristina get beautified, but she wanted to capture their reactions when they saw her all done up in her wedding dress for the first time. I am so glad that she chose to do this because it was such a priceless moment. Just look at all of those faces full of raw emotion and excitement!
Another reason that I was a big fan of the Airbnb....this beautiful mirror! Again, a photographer's dream.
This was such fun and easy going group of ladies to work with. They were all so excited to watch their beautiful friend get married!
I still can't get over how STUNNING Kristina was, such a beautiful and laid back bride!
