She grew up in Harford county. He grew up in Carroll county. They met junior year at Stevenson University and bought their first home together in Baltimore City adjacent to Patterson Park, because they love urban life with their 2 dogs. :) Watching Sara + Jake together makes it easy to understand why they are so perfect for each other; we had an incredible time along the water for their spring engagement session, so we all knew their wedding day would be even that much more incredible!
They make an adorable team, and are constantly cheering the other on in so many aspects of life! Sara's parents and sister and brother-in-law were all married on September 4th as well. Now Teresa and Richard will share the same wedding anniversary with both of their daughters - isn't that the sweetest?!
Glamorous, formal, royal and fancy was the way Sara described their wedding vision the first time we met... I think it's safe to say it was definitely that, and so much more!!
Sara's friend (and bridesmaid!) Natalie designed all of the paper goods, including their crest and the caricature on the cutest koozie wedding favor you've ever seen. So many unique personal touches to all of the wedding details made the day a dream to capture at the Royal Sonesta overlooking Baltimore's Inner Harbor on a bright, sunny fall day...
During so much of our time together, Sara kept mentioning how excited she was to see Jake all dressed up in his tux - so dapper!!
Hands down. Cutest flower girl EVER. #allthehearteyes
Sara, you were such a stunning sight in your Maggie Sottero dress and Betsey Johnson shoes, both with champagne undertones and just the right amount of delicate sparkle!
Time for a daddy daughter first look that makes it all so real... :)
I love the focus and concern... donut wedding cake for the win!
So glad we had such a wonderfully fun couple that was willing to head outside to take some epic night portraits along the water!
Here's to wishing you both the best as you celebrate your newlywed status! We loved having the honor of being your wedding photographer and hope you cherish the memories of officially starting your lives together in such a romantic and meaningful way! xoxo
