Magalys + Brian’s Real Frederick Wedding

From the photographer:

“I have some great news for youuuuu” the planner sang to Maggie as she popped her head into the bridal suite. We had all been listening to the wind and rain batter the fogged window panes for a while, and when the planner exclaimed that the forecast had shifted and the storm was on its way out for the rest of the day, we all exhaled a collective sigh of relief.

These two vowed to spend the rest of their lives together at the Ceresville Mansion. The ivy-woven altar, the lush greenery and classic architecture of the mansion surrounding it, and even the clouds that danced above us after the storm…it was all enough to set a tone of excitement and romance as Maggie slipped into her fairy tale gown. While Maggie enjoyed the company of her adoring bridesmaids and family, Brian and his groomsmen put the finishing touches on their swanky getups in the room across the hall. After the storm kindly made its way elsewhere, Maggie and Brian were ready for their intimate first look. Brian had a chance to marvel at his STUNNING bride (no really…if you have read this far without peeking at her in her dress…you’re in for a treat) and they shared a few quiet moments alone before everything got started. From then on, the day was a whirlwind of happy tears, joyous embraces from loved ones, and a heck of a dance party.

Congratulations to Brian and Magalys!

Cristina + Gonzalo’s Real Frederick Engagement

From the photographer:

Cristina went down to Peru to help out at an orphanage, and on the last week there, she met Gonzalo.  During the next few days, he would either look for her or text her. She came back to the states, and it was not quite over yet.  It started with facebook chat, made its way to texting, and finally they admitted feelings for each other.  So Cristina decided to go to Lima, Peru to visit him. The day she got there, he got a ring. And before she left, he got down on one knee.

Having the engagement session in downtown Frederick was PERFECT. It was full of energy and they had a blast, at least I hope so! Their love is evident in the many smiles and hugs.

One Fine Day | Sara + Mayan’s Real Frederick Wedding

From the photographer:

Sara and Mayan met through work and fell in love! Sara made the flower arrangements and the decorations for the wedding. Mayan’s mother and brother and sister in law flew over from Israel! Mayan’s mom, Eti, brought the fans for the guests. They were so beautiful! The day was absolutely perfect. They had a cocktail hour first, Sara wore a different dress, then the ceremony and reception. It was amazing!
