Kyle + Sami | Maryland Wedding Photography

May 20, 2016 was a great day…it was Kyle and Sami’s wedding day! Thinking back over the event, the one word that stands out to me is FAMILY. Kyle and Sami had told me how close they were to both sides of their families and how important it was to have all of their family there celebrating with them when they got married. Even though technically I am not a guest or family member, sometimes I come away from a wedding feeling like I am and this was one of those times. Everyone was so accommodating, thankful and encouraging – checking on me and Ruthie, my awesome assistant, making sure we had what we needed, offering to move things out of the way, checking to see if we had drinks or food and doing whatever they could to make our job easier. I felt kind of spoiled.

As far as the real family…everyone was SO happy for Kyle and Sami and it was truly a uniting of two families who know and love each other. Kyle and Sami have been together for 10 years and it showed in their families’ relationships. It was very special.

The wedding day itself went so smoothly. Sami had everything planned perfectly down to the last detail including monogramed shirts for all her bridesmaids, sweet little coloring books for the kids at the reception and a coffee bar to go with the adorable yummy cupcakes for dessert. Sami’s dress was simple and oh so elegant, Kyle looked handsome in gray and a bow-tie, the church was beautiful, the flower girl and ring bearer were so adorable and the venue, Walker’s Overlook was the perfect backdrop on a cool spring day.

I had such a wonderful time capturing these memories for Kyle and Sami. It was one of those weddings when I left knowing that they have all the love and support they will need in their new life together and it was a good feeling.  Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Carter for welcoming me, trusting me and giving me the privilege of being at your wedding. I wish you ALL the best in the days and years to come.  XO
