Yesterday, Angie and Mike had the most spectacular wedding at the famed Turf Valley Resort in Ellicott City, Maryland. Despite the heat, the waning pandemic, and the brutal noise of the 17-year cicadas, it all went without a hitch!
I got to know Angie and Mike about 18 months ago, and had the pleasure of photographing them during an engagement photo session last year. These two love birds met online and quickly forged not only a relationship between each other, but equally important, they forged a relationship between their families. You see, Angie comes from a Chinese heritage whose father Tony came to the United States almost 50 years ago. It was undoubtedly important to Angie’s family that her husband loves Angie well and that they would love him well too! A firefighter, Mike couldn’t be anymore sweeter and soon won the heart of Angie and her family too! Tears, laughter, traditions including the beautiful Tea Ceremony which included a stunningly tailored dress for Angie made by her mother-in-law. These families truly became one family thanks to Angie and Mike saying their “I dos”!
As I continue to edit Angie and Mike’s wedding photos which will be posted in the coming weeks, join me as we take a brief sneak peek tour of their wedding and please be sure to give a shout out to all the creatives (at the bottom) who worked tirelessly in making their dreams come true! Enjoy these sneak peak photos!
