Popular. Winsome. Warm. Bright. Cheerful. Friendly. Thoughtful. Fun.
These are but a few words that come to mind when I think of Kaitlyn and Shane. From the minute I met them about a year ago to discuss their vision for their wedding and wedding photography, I knew that we had chemistry – a very important facet of forging a relationship with my couples. Not to mention that they both belong on the cover of a fashion magazine!
This past Saturday, my 2nd photographer Desirae and I joined Kaitlyn, Shane, their families and friends at the picturesque wedding venue known as Stone Ridge Hollow, in Forest Hill, Maryland. Situated near Rocks State Park, this property boasts panoramic landscape views with its modernized barn and silo homestead. Immediately across the main facility are two ponds, one with a water fountain, and one without (which served as the background for the ceremony), providing for ample opportunities to capture great photographic backdrops. Trimmed with new carpentry (I think it was cedar, but can’t be sure), chandeliers, drapes, and just the most perfect bridal suite I have seen, this facility is a must have if you’re in the market for a wedding venue! Kaitlyn and Shane’s wedding was catered by Santoni’s and videographed by Red 5 Recording.
The weather on this wedding day was a sunny, clear, and balmy 65F in November… a dream! Kaitlyn and her glam squad, along with Shane and his boys took part in a Father-Daughter First Look, as well as a Bride and Groom First Look. Have I ever mentioned to you how much I love First Looks? Ha! Needless to say, Kaitlyn was breathtaking in her gown. Great entertainment by DJ Korey from Baltimore’s Premier Event Solutions kept people on their feet, with drinks and desserts by Santoni’s filled the guests with laughter and smiles!
Join me now on a brief tour of their wedding photos below! And please remember to give a shout out to all the professionals who worked tirelessly to make it happen!
