The day was crystal clear at Mountain Branch Golf Club in Joppa Maryland for Eric and Lauren’s wedding. I can’t remember the sky being that blue for a wedding!
This was my first ceremony at Mountain Branch and I had NO idea what a beautiful view you had at the ceremony site! The rolling hills of Harford County behind the bride and groom made you feel like you were in the mountains! What a hidden gem for a beautiful wedding!
The Mountain Branch coordinator gave the bride a sneak peek of the reception set up. Oh boy did she like it!
I love this shot with the bride and her bridesmaids in their purple robes! So fun!
What a happy groom!
A really neat thing about this couple is that they met through running! The run marathons and ultra marathons! The groom proposed at the end of a race! So this sign was special to their relationship!
Ah, I LOVE the first time the groom sees the bride! There
were definitely tears was definitely something in his eye. 😉
I also love the first time the bride sees the groom!
The flowers were done by Blush Floral Design Studio. Since I know NOTHING about flowers besides what’s a rose or a lily…or a daisy…lol, yea, that’s about it!….I asked Stacy, one of the owners, to describe them! “The main flowers were dendrobium orchids! They were the vibrant turquoise and purple! We also used white ones as well as hydrangeas and roses.” I loved how extravagant they were! I mean, look at these bridesmaid’s flowers! And didn’t everyone look smashing in their dresses and tuxes? Everything came from K&B Bridals!
I loved the elegance of the baby’s breath (ok, hey, I know a few types of flowers!) with a touch of purple and turquoise ribbon.
The sand ceremony was perfect with turquoise and purple sand! The inscription was “Marriage, two hearts joined forever in love. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate. Matthew 19:6”
Immediately after the ceremony the bride and groom are whisked away in a golf cart. This is my FAVORITE moment at a wedding. When the bride and groom get to the end of the aisle, before anyone has walked down the aisle or can say congrats, and it’s just the two of them. There is this wonderful, emotional moment when they realize “We’re married!” and it’s a reuniting since they’ve been apart all day! Ahhh, love it. 🙂 Also, check out the back of the bride’s custom made necklace by Faye Daniel Designs! I’ve never seen anything like that before!
And this right here may be the best shot so far we’ve gotten with the bride and groom!
The four ring shot isn’t too bad either!
This venue is wonderful for so many reasons, this right here is my favorite! Bret and I were tossed in golf carts along with the bride and groom and taken to a hidden spot to take pictures! I’m telling you, this is a photographer’s dream!
Their beautiful cake was done by Yia Yia’s bakery. When we met with the bride and groom to review their pictures they said that the flowers on the cake were edible! I had NO idea they were fake flowers!
Aren’t their wine glass favors great?
They even had a signature drink! “Something Blue” which is one part lemonade, one part blue curacao and one part blue berry vodka. It sounds delicious! I’m going to try it soon!!
Their photobooth was Wilmington Photobooth. Bret gave the bride some advice on when to photo bomb the guests!
Jenny Z Mobile DJ kept the party rockin’ until the very end of the night! I don’t think there was a point where the dance floor was empty all night! I think this shot shows how much fun everyone was having, especially the groom!
Check out the rest of the wedding!
