To say it was an honor to be a part of Stephen + Joe’s wedding is an understatement. It’s hard for me to put into words how much love and connection was palpable between these two and their family, friends and guests!
The day started with Joe getting ready at their home in Bolton Hill (where their #urbanrowpup Luther stayed close to him the entire time!) and Steve getting ready at Hotel Indigo, downtown. As the trolley rolled up to Hotel Indigo, Steve and Joe saw each other in their custom tuxedos for the first time and joined their wedding party for a fun and lively trolley ride down to Fells Point for portraits and back to Mt. Vernon park for the ceremony.
In front of 250 friends and family, there were heartfelt stories of love, connection and memories shared. Vows started with “I’m going to try not to ugly cry...” and ended with stories of spontaneous decisions early in their relationship that are an invaluable part of their story to this day.
My favorite part of the day was when the ceremony was over and the entire wedding party and their guests walked Steve and Joe down to the Assembly Room, along the sidewalks and through the streets of Baltimore… it was such a sight to see so many people gathered together to share in and support their wedding!
We couldn’t be happier for you, Steve and Joe! Your marriage and the strong connection you two share is something so many hope for. Here’s to dancing in the streets together for years to come...
