Irene & Howard
On a perfect fall day, Irene and Howard said their I Do’s. It was simple and elegant with fabulous details. (Be sure to see the vendor information at the end!) It was a beautiful early evening Nuptial Mass at the historic Baltimore Basilica, immediately followed by a reception a few blocks away at the charming Chase Court. The evening was flowing with great music, food and drinks, facilitating lots of socializing in the intimate Gothic inspired reception areas.
I’m so glad Irene and Howard squeezed in a “First Look” since we were able to get some really natural and joyful portraits of the bride and groom in the early evening light. (In case anyone doesn’t know, a First Look is where the bride and groom arrange to see each other privately before the wedding and have a quite moment together before the events of the wedding carry them away. The photographer documents the moment from a small distance and then, in the afterglow of that moment, the official portraits are taken. It allows for an experience that would otherwise be missed and makes for some of the best images of the day!)
Let’s congratulate these happy newlyweds and wish them well!
