Sagamore Pendry Baltimore Wedding
Dimi & Mark | Baltimore, MD
We are so lucky to experience so many beautiful weddings at so many different venues, hotels, destinations, etc. I feel like Sagamore Pendry 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 even more lucky for Victoria Weddings of San Diego to have found me on Instagram and Dimi, the bride, 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.
Dimi, in her beautiful flowing dress matched the elegance of the hotel 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!
