Jennifer + Bryan

It was the gorgeous Sunday of Memorial Day weekend when Jenn and Bryan were married. The Baltimore Country Club was the setting for the outside ceremony followed by a cocktail hour (also outdoors) and a lovely seated served dinner inside the club's beautiful dining room. After dinner, the formalities melted away and what followed was a spirited, fun and lively dance party facilitated by one of our favorite bands: Onyx.

The images here are from talented photographer Brian Slanger. Jenn and (her) Bryan decided to have a photo session before the ceremony so their "first look" photo is pictured here. The cloistered garden walkway at BCC is the perfect, private setting for a bride and groom's first moments together on the wedding day.

Jenn's gown was a wonderfully detailed Ramona Keveza dress from Betsy Robinson's Bridal Collection and the groom and groomsmen's tuxedos were from Tuxedo House. The bridesmaids chocolate brown (short) dresses were by Thread and purchased at the fabulous Garnish Boutique on Falls Road in Mt. Washington.

The bride's hair and make-up were flawless and the work of Lorraine Ross (hair stylist) and Jamie Leboe (make-up artist). These are two women that I turn to many times to provide a bride and her girls with terrific styling in a friendly manner. The bride looked stunning.

The flowers in these images were designed by the amazing Carole Langrall of Garden of Earthly Delights. She is talented, creative and kind and we loved working with her on this wedding. She incorporated the wildflowers that Jenn loves so much while keeping the florals formal enough to match the venue.

Next post: the (very fun) reception.
