They carried book bags into their classroom at Sacred Heart School in Glyndon, wide eyed 1st graders with hope in their eyes and dreams in their hearts. They ate lunch, played on the playground and learned to read side by side. She graduated to Mercy High School, an all girls’ school where she fell into her posse of girlfriends that would walk her through the ups and downs of becoming an independent woman.
He graduated to Loyola High School where he would live his days running with the guys from the hood before heading off to college and jumping into corporate life.
There were moments in the journey when Tarryn and Dan would get it right. But he would get distracted by his Playstation and she would get distracted by the energy and activity of a new college semester. They gave one another the space to explore yet they always wound up back in each other’s arms. They’ve decided that’s a sweet place to live.
All their friends and family agree . . . this first love made it. And it’s a beautiful thing to celebrate, surrounded by family and friends that have been there for the ride.
Tarryn and Dan, thank you for showing me that love hopes, love endures, and love wins. I am grateful that I was invited into your lives . . . and that I’ll get to be back with you for another family wedding later this summer!
Maryland’s glorious horse country, on Belmont Road in Worthington Valley was our backdrop . . . we were chasing light all day and it was a beautiful game.
Immaculate Conception Church in Towson, Maryland has seen generations of Twomeys join their lives for eternity. Rich tradition. Meaningful ritual.
Tarryn King . . . fierce.
The stately Mansion at Valley Country Club. And Mr. Artie D was there in his place, for all you old school Baltomorians.
Their song was Tom Petty’s Free Fallin. A father and his only child, a beautiful woman. That would make a rock cry.
Tarryn and Dan. Keepin it real. Love those guys, because they have the world at their feet, yet don’t take it at all too seriously.
I worked with some of my favorite vendors on this wedding . . .
Frank Young kept the party rolling . . . he’s the master of Vitamin String Orchestra, so you get AC/DC, U2 and Muse as your chamber dinner music . . . warming up the guests for the real throw down.
I also shot the day with Iron Mountain’s Bernie, who knows his cinematography. Got to draft off his cool lighting all night:)
