Don't forget these special items to be photographed first thing on your big day!

Martina and Tim are the most joyful couple! I had the pleasure of meeting Martina when she accompanied her bestie, Megan, at her 2019 Linganore Winecellars wedding as a bridesmaid. I was so thrilled to hear that Mart & Tim would be having their own Historic London Town & Gardens wedding this past spring! I knew it would be an absolute blast. Then, I was even MORE thrilled to hear that their doodle, Brewer (a relative of Megan’s doodle, Porter!), would be attending their engagement session and their wedding ceremony! I’d say he stole the hearts of all the guests, but Martina looked so breathtaking as she walked down the aisle, the guests couldn’t help but be awestruck. Tim, even having seen her before the wedding in their exciting first look moment, became emotional when he saw her coming. It was absolutely magical!

Martina’s details were simple, classic, and fun!

Tim got major brownie points from Mart & her family for gifting her with a beautiful tennis bracelet the morning of the wedding! And then, best boy Brewer showed up – he was SO excited to see all of his friends and favorite people!!!

Mart & Tim’s first look was so wonderful! His joyous reaction made us all giggle. You could really feel how much he admires his beautiful bride!

The wedding party met us down in the woods of London Town & Gardens for portraits before the ceremony.

This next shot was 100% worth the dog hair on Tim’s suit! 😉

The ceremony space overlooking the water was so serene. Guests were able to move to cocktail hour on the lawn right afterwards!

Can we talk about this incredible vintage GTO that Martina’s dad bought her when she was younger? so we definitely had to get some portraits with it!

Their reception was light and airy with white linens & florals, delicate gold details and dusty blue linens to match the bridesmaid dresses.

At sunset, we made sure to head down to the historic house for a few portraits. It was timed perfectly to catch the sunset colors over the water on the pier, too.

They finished the evening with a super packed, high energy dance floor!
