Sarah and Mike were such a fantastic couple to work with! I had the privilege of photographing their engagement photos near their Hampden, Baltimore home last fall and was beyond excited to photograph their wedding. They were married at the stunning Cloisters Castle in Lutherville, Maryland. Seriously, I could not have thought of a better venue for their wedding, which by the way was Hobbit/ Lord of the Rings inspired. The Cloisters Castle sits high up on a hill surrounded by acres of woods. The sky was soft grey and some unexpected snow flurries fell throughout the day. I’m guessing nature was a bit confused, seeing as it had been spring for a few days. However, the light snow added such a magical element and you truly felt like you had stepped into a Tolkien book.
Moss and candles adorned the tables, which were named after various locations around Middle Earth, in the reception rooms. Sarah’s bouquet had ferns mixed within the flowers giving it a lush, Middle Earth feeling. To top everything off Sarah had a stunning hand made cloak she wore in place of a veil. Not only was it unique and lovely, but it kept her warm with the chill that lingered in the air. It was an unforgettable day!
Congratulations Sarah and Mike! It was an honor to photograph your day!
