Cynthia shared how she had a great time finding the perfect dress that seamlessly matched their end-of-summer outdoor wedding. From carefully choosing the florals to meticulously planning every detail that fell into place on the big day, their driving force was crystal clear – turning their dream wedding into a living, breathing reality. The couple’s genuine joy and commitment to their big day stood out wonderfully! Here’s a glimpse of their incredible celebration.

Carter And Cynthia’s Crownsville Wedding

It was a great start to Carter and Cynthia’s big day as I started photographing their getting ready moments. Cynthia looked stunning as she got ready with her bridesmaids and mother in her childhood home. And that first look with her dad? It was absolutely heartfelt. I could feel the emotion as he hugged her tightly and nearly shed a tear. The couple looked stunning, and their excitement, clearly shining through moments before their union, was an absolute joy to capture!

WOW! The outdoor setting for their union was simply breathtaking! I was in awe of how the beautiful greenery and pastel-colored flowers adorned the space! Even the wooden-framed arbor couldn’t have been more perfect with its gorgeous florals. The simple yet elegant setting was perfect for capturing stunning photographs of the beautiful couple and their loved ones as they witnessed their union. Seeing Carter tear up at seeing his gorgeous bride walking down the aisle was a touching moment that will stay with me forever. 

There’s something beautiful about two people so in love, and Carter and Cynthia perfectly embodied that. One of the highlights was definitely their fun wedding party, as they brought so much energy and personality to the shoot. Their striking poses and funky style left a lasting impression! Once I took the group shots, it was time for the couples portraits, and boy, did they knock it out of the park! Carter and Cynthia looked gorgeous together, and their chemistry was undeniable. Every shot captured their love and adoration for each other, and I was mesmerized.

To say this couple knew how to party would be an understatement. As Carter and Cynthia took to the dance floor for their first dance as newlyweds, the dance floor energy rose to be electric as the newlyweds owned every inch of the room with jaw-dropping moves. Another highlight was the bride’s father-daughter dance. Cynthia said it took them practicing all summer to perfect the routine, and it was a true standout moment! Not to forget the sweet dances shared between the bride and her brothers? As the night drew to a close, the couple’s sparkler exit was the cherry on top of a perfect day.

Reliving The Wedding Joy

It was an honor to document such a joyous and loving celebration! The couple later shared fond memories as they reflected on their special day’s moments. “There were so many sentimental moments that made our special day truly unforgettable!” Cynthia continued, “We had grandparents and siblings involved in unique ways that made the day extra sentimental.” Although the August heat was a bit of a challenge, the couple agreed it was a minor inconvenience compared to the day’s joy.

When asked about vendors, Cynthia couldn’t praise them enough, “I loved all of our vendors!” she said, beaming. Finally, when asked for advice, Cynthia had only one thing to say, “Enjoy every moment of the planning and the day off. Planning can be stressful and a long process, but it is all worth it! Soak up all that hard work on the day off and feel all the LOVE!”
