We are so lucky to experience so many beautiful weddings at so many different venues, hotels, destinations, etc. I feel like the Sagamore Pendry  Baltimore Wedding took it up a notch in terms of hotels venues. To the ceremony site, the unique artwork displayed, and the elegance of the ballroom.

I was also lucky for Victoria Weddings of San Diego to have found me on Instagram. And even more lucky for Dimi choosing my work amongst a few other names that were sent to her.

This, along with the entire wedding was almost a last minute occasion because they were originally supposed to be married last year, but Mark the groom, being in the special forces, got injured and had to delay their San Diego wedding.

Needless to say, as the father of the bride states in his speech, the planning by the mother and also Victoria Weddings made everything happen so seamlessly and also made my job on the day go smoothly as well.

Ceremony & Reception

Dimi, in her beautiful flowing dress matched the elegance of the hotel. It also matched with the red long staircase, and views overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.

This classical wedding began with formal pictures with just close family along the staircase after them getting ready, followed by the ceremony under the long glass roof which leads into the outdoor pool area overlooking the water. Their personal vows to each other were so beautiful and you could see not just love between these two, but DEEP love.

Once the reception began, there were wonderful toasts made by the parents of the bride and all the siblings, but my favorite was hearing Dimi’s mom talk about having prayed for Dimi’s husband since she was a little girl.

This was so special because Susanna and I have been praying for Christian’s wife, even though Christian is only 3 years old. We believe in the power of prayer and believe prayer can protect even now his future wife and future union.

With some quick formal pictures before the sun set, the night came to an end with everyone dancing the night away. It was awesome to have been a part of this special God appointed day!

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!
