Hailey & Sam | Columbia Country Club Maryland | November 9, 2019

video

Columbia Country Club in Maryland was where we shot Hailey & Sam’s beautiful Fall wedding.

Stories like theirs never gets old as you see God work his magic between two people. They met on their first day of work in a new city in Colorado – one from DC, the other from Seattle and the rest is history!

It was a frigid day, but still bearable. After an emotional first look between Hailey and her father, Hailey walked up and pointed Sam on his shoulder. You couldn’t tell from the pictures (Lisa from Abby Jiu Photograph) and video that they braved the cold during their first look as well as portrait and bridal party shots on the golf course.

They performed a short Ketubah signing as most Jewish weddings do. However, a priest was brought in as well and was beautiful to see both Jewish and Catholic elements in the ceremony!

Ceremony & Reception

Anne from Anne Kelley Events designed such a gorgeous ceremony site as well as all the decor in the reception site.

Because Jewish weddings have ceremonies after sundown, we typically use our lights, but Frost Lighting I believe provided the lights which definitely helped the visuals immensely.

I tell people all the time I want a daughter simply because I want to know that feeling. I know it will be different than having a boy in many ways. Hailey’s father again teared up during his amazing toast to Hailey and it’s just so beautiful to witness. Definitely being a father is one of the best joys in life and I just.can’t.wait.for.our.children’s.weddings!!

Check out the rest of the fun evening such as their first dance, the Jewish Hora, and the awesome props utilized on the dancefloor!

Lauren & Drew | 3.2.19 | Four Seasons Baltimore Wedding

video

Lauren & Drew’s March wedding started in their hotel rooms at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore. The last time we were here was for another Jewish wedding many years ago, but in the Fall.

Fortunately we lucked out not only with weather, but with the sun coming out from the clouds and shining right into Lauren’s suite as soon as she was finished getting into her dress. The sun made the room and Lauren look even more stunning!

Soon after the first look happened on the terrace and these two young lovebirds couldn’t be happier to see each other. The sun continued to shine for us as we were finishing up photos with the bride and groom and the bridal party. Shortly after, the Ketubah signing occurred right before the Jewish ceremony.

Ceremony & Reception

Having worked with Elle Ellinghaus Design on a previous wedding a few years ago, I was still very surprised by the look and design of the ceremony. The room was flipped shortly after for the reception and the design was even greater!

Kudos to this team of planners who truly made the rooms gorgeous and helps make our videos look beautiful!

The awesome first dance by Lauren & Drew was exciting for us to capture along with the traditional hora with them and their parents. And without fail, I shed a tear with the parents dances, imagining our son, Christian dancing with my wife, Susanna.

As I tell people over and over, we love these intimate moments between families and we always definitely feel like a part of the family that day and extending into the many many hours I am editing their special day.

We are thankful to have captured Lauren & Drew’s wedding day at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore and pray and bless their union as a married couple. Mazel Tov!
