Laura & Drew planned such a gorgeous wedding in the mountains of western Maryland, anticipating spectacular fall foliage and just enough nip in the air to get everyone excited and ready for hot cider – I couldn’t wait! So when the weather turned out very cold (36 degrees!!!) and rainy, we were all a bit disappointed. But Laura & Drew are such warm and cheerful people and their happiness was enough to put a smile on everyone’s face!
Laura’s groomswoman, Alicia, made this gorgeous necklace for her to wear…
….and her mom made her veil!
I love how it took such a group to fasten the back of Laura’s dress!
These two are so smitten
I love it when couples are willing to troop into fields for some fun shots!
The ceremony was at a charming and warm little church in Oakland, MD
After the ceremony, Laura & Drew climbed a narrow little staircase to ring the church bells. They had a moment to themselves before exiting through the church and the arch of swords!
Their friends were kind enough to decorate Laura & Drew’s car with “just married” signs and plenty of streamers and glowing stars – it was so cute!
And on to the reception at Wisp Ski Resort in McHenry, MD. Everything was so festive and beautiful!
They had a really great swing band – The Swing Machine out of Fairfax, VA – they were fantastic!
And they really got everyone going!
And by the end of the evening, all that rain became worth the trouble when it turned into snow.
