Cathy + Allen – A Pier 5 Baltimore Wedding


Cathy and Allen were married at Pier 5 overlooking the water right in downtown Baltimore, Maryland.  It was a perfect August day; not too hot, and no rain!  It was a fun day all around too.  When I arrived, I was so surprised to see how calm Cathy was!  Cathy was relaxed and having fun with her bridesmaids (they even did zumba together!).  After the girls finished getting ready, we went downstairs and did some bridal party photos and pictures of the beautiful bride.  On the other side of the hotel, Kelsey, my second shooter, was photographing the guys.  Then it was time for the ceremony – which was truly the most touching ceremony I have ever seen.  Cathy and Allen wrote personal messages for each other, and they were so sweet.  It was so beautiful.

The reception afterward was so fun, complete with a Pixelated Photo Booth, raffles, and lots and lots of dancing!  Ashley and Katey of Lemon & Lime Event Design coordinated Cathy and Allen’s beautiful day.  They are so great to work with, and it was so nice to see them again; the last time I saw this awesome duo was at my own wedding in June :)  I also had my favorite second shooter, Kelsey, with me.  I always love working with my sister!

Cathy and Allen’s wedding was so beautiful and fun, and these two are really just some of the sweetest people.  I loved getting to know Cathy and Allen during our engagement shoot and it was so fun celebrating their wedding with them!  Enjoy a few of my favorites from Cathy and Allen’s wedding day!

Cathy’s beautiful veil was her “something borrowed.”




Aren’t these three girls so adorable?  They were so much fun to photograph! 2014-09-21_0002.jpg


Aren’t these four a gorgeous group?  Cathy’s bridesmaids were all so sweet and supportive! 2014-09-21_0009.jpg 2014-09-21_0010.jpg 2014-09-21_0011.jpg 2014-09-21_0012.jpg 2014-09-21_0017.jpg
