The girl knows how to make things happen. While raising two young men on her own, building a career with Johns Hopkins, and pursuing her education, Brian and Amy met and realized they had quite a connection. They fell for one another but their busy lives and their long distance commute became a stumbling block. Brian continued to build his life with daughter, Alex, just south of Amy. After a six month sabbatical, Amy decided that she’d like to have dinner with Brian to catch up. After all, he was her best friend. One dinner turned into a second and a third, and before long they realized that they want to share all of their dinners without end.
I first met Amy and Brian in the quaint coffee shop we three call”our favorite.” I was mesmerized by her energy. I was humbled by his support and love for her. Their Ostertag Vistas wedding was the culmination of a year of collecting antique china, gorgeous vintage broaches for her bouquet, and myriad artistic details culminating in the winter wonderland wedding of their dreams. It takes a brave couple to book a January wedding on Old South Mountain. Although our hopes of a snow blanket did not come to fruition, we were blessed with a gorgeous soft box of winter light.
Amy and Brian, you are magical. Your love is strong and true, keeping those around you tucked into your orbit of love and acceptance. Thank you for the honor of documenting your first day as husband and wife.
