I’ve been so excited about this wedding all week for lots of reasons.

First of all, Lisa and Steve are so in love with each other and their daughter, Ellie . . .

it was pure joy to share in their wedding day.

I’ve gotten to know Lisa and Steve over the last six months, beginning with our first meeting in my studio in Reisterstown.

Several weeks later we shared a morning together (our “get-to-know-you” session) at Olive Garden, where Lisa and Steve met and fell head over heels.

Lisa and Steve are building a home together just over the hill from me. They’ll be building next to Steve’s boyhood home . . . also the location of their elegant backyard reception.

One of the other things I LOVED about their wedding was that they kept it local.

Starry Night Bakery, Dutterer’s Florist, The Spa at Roop’s Mill, Harry’s Main Street Grille, and  Frank Young, DJ

All from Westminster. ALL really fine pros.

Tim Hinsche shot this wedding with me, and we both agreed . . . great wedding, great couple.

Shannon Kraus at The Spa at Roop’s Mill did such a beautiful job on hair and makeup and kept those girls smiling.

Lisa and Steve’s daughter Ellie was a little tentative at first, but then really warmed to the thought of “princess for a day.”

Mary Couture. Need I say more?

The ceremony was at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Taneytown . . . the one with all the bulldozers in front.

Everyone had a great attitude though, and it was really no big deal.

A photographic trick? A “mirror” application? Naw. That’s Michael, Steve’s twin . . . these guys were super fun together.

One of Steve’s family traditions includes wearing “Groucho Marx’s” to special events.

It’s been happening for decades. How much fun is that?

It’s fresh. It’s new. And I LOVE it! I’ve had so much fun designing the new blog and will continue to tweak as the weeks go on.

And this one is just straight out of the camera. Okay, so it was a five minute blog post . . .

but you get the picture. The Big Picture.

If you’re feeling nostalgic for my former blog, “through the lens,” it still floating out there.
