Courtney + Brian: Pre-Ceremony

It was certainly another beautiful Saturday in Baltimore when Courtney and Brian were married. July was especially kind to us this year with comfortable temperatures and low humidity. Even though this wedding took place inside at a church and museum, good weather always allows us to move guests easily from one site to the other and offers a great opportunity for outdoor photos.
For this wedding, uber-talented New York Photographer David Mielcarek from Cinematic by David M started the day by capturing the groom's side trip to the famous Camden Yards stadium, home of our beloved Baltimore Orioles. It looks like they had such fun. What a great way to start the day.

I'll bet very few grooms have a photo of their groomsmen standing on the Orioles dugout at Camden Yards. This is a keeper.

Meanwhile, the bride along with her bridesmaids were relaxing, having hair styled and make-up applied in the comfort of the bride's suite at The Intercontinental Harbor Court Hotel.

Cool photo of Courtney's wedding jewelry.

Madeleine Homes from La Papillion Spa and Boutique in Timonium did a wonderful job with make up for the wedding day. She also has a cute blog to follow: Peace. Love. Lipgloss.

Aren't these wedding shoes super-cute? They are from Betsy Robinson's Bridal Collection.

This next photo was taken by Kakki Morrison who is a designer at Romance of Flowers. Owner Victoria Claussen along with Kakki and a talented team of designers, once again created breath-taking florals for this wedding. If anyone wonders why I turn to Victoria time and time again for wedding flowers, this photo and the ones to follow in the Ceremony and Reception posts will certainly explain why.
