When you know, you know! Jordan met Anthony while they both sat together on a flight and small talk turned into many hours of conversation and the rest is history. You see, Jordan is a Human Resource professional and is naturally gifted towards communication. Anthony is a tough on the outside, soft on the inside sort of guy and he fell head over heels for Jordan. This glamour magazine duo recently moved to the area, bought a house (which was hit by a tornado within weeks of moving into it), and planned a wedding without breaking a sweat. Seriously, it was a lot on their plates, but you could tell that they really cared for each other and didn’t sweat the small stuff.
I had the pleasure of spending some time with both of them during our engagement photo session which we planned around a beautiful boat marina in Edgewater Maryland. I’ve done this enough times where I can now tell within 3.5 seconds whether the chemistry is going to help all of us create artistic photos or not. And great photos we got! So much so that Jordan and Anthony had created several 30×40 canvases which they prominently displayed at their wedding venue.
Which venue you ask? Well, this past weekend, Jordan and Anthony got hitched at the historic and elegantly decorated mansion in Catonsville, Maryland known as Overhills Mansion (the official name is Whitehouse Caterers at Overhills Mansion). This property boasts a classic circular driveway, colonnades, a tented ceremony area, and all the quaint and beautiful decor you would expect at a historic mansion. The Bridesmaids wore full length pistachio dresses and the Groomsmen wore navy colored tuxedos. And of course, the service catering by Whitehouse Caterers made the hardest critic smile (great job to Mark and the team!). What an amazing wedding it was on a partly sunny and beautiful day.
Join me in congratulating Jordan and Anthony on their special day and come along with me on a quick sneak peek tour of their wedding with the photos below. Enjoy these images as I continue to edit the remaining images over the course of the next few weeks. And give a shout out and some love to their wedding team below!
