The April showers stopped for Allie and Drew on their wedding day! We had cozy overcast skies and so many sweet moments… It was so nice to see so many friends from high school too! Allie and I graduated together, and Brooke (de la TERRA Esthetics) too, along with several girls in the bridal party, and Jessica, the coordinator! It’s always fun getting to reconnect with each other and see how everyone is doing after over ten years now!
The girls got ready at a nearby hotel just outside of Havre de Grace, Maryland. Brooke is such a talented makeup artist… Allie looked so natural and beautiful! Her gown was one of the most unique I’d ever seen… Absolutely stunning!
The Stepping Stone Museum is a non-profit museum dedicated to preserving rural arts and crafts of the 1880-1920 time period in Harford County. They represent the “last rural generation” of people who lived off the land and hand-crafted their livelihoods. They have a few barns with antique farm equipment and the cutest old stone house overlooking a lush wooded area. It was such a cute property!
Allie planned an entire extra hour for portraits between the ceremony and Cocktail Hour which was awesome! We photographed around the grounds while the last few touches of the barn were being completed. As guests arrived, we were finishing up just in time for Cocktail Hour to begin. I love when I have the opportunity to be part of that time, mingling with the guests as they enjoy small bites and tasty drinks!
The inside of the barn was decorated with romantic soft pink and gold details… Jessica and her team at White Oak Events did such a great job implementing exactly what Allie had envisioned… After two incredibly touching speeches by Allie’s sister Megan and Drew’s brother Devon as well as Allie and Drew’s first dance, it was time for dinner which included the largest asparagus anyone of us had ever seen…!
I had no doubt that their dance floor would be AMAZING! And it was… I had the best time on the floor with everyone! It was such a fun day… Everyone had an absolute blast… Truly a day that will be remembered! Congratulations to such a sweet couple! May your life together be endlessly blessed!
