James and Lisa were married at St. Ann Roman Catholic Church in Hagerstown, MD with a reception just down the street at the beautiful Fountainhead Country Club. They had perfect weather and a great group of people to celebrate the start of their new life together. We started at Fountainhead with getting ready photos then headed over to the church for them to have a moment alone to pray before their full mass ceremony. I loved that we had plenty of time for lots of photos of the two of them together before their reception began. Enjoy a sneak peek into their wedding day!

Lisa was glowing all day! Such a gorgeous smile, and Tanique really nailed the perfect wedding day makeup. Check out her gorgeous wedding dress that her mother MADE for her! How awesome is that?!?
I loved the color pallette for this wedding. Her girls looked amazing in these colors!
So many couples are opting for time before the ceremony together, and many times this is done in a way as to not break the tradition of seeing each other before the walk down the aisle. We found the perfect spot outside the church by a tree which provided a meaningful place to pray together before starting their marriage.
I loved the chemistry between these two!
Here’s one of the shots of the two of them from a little later in the evening before sunset when they came out for 5 minutes. The front of the country club is a parking lot, but it was the best view of the sky. So, I got down super low and did a nice silhouette. I could totally see this as a canvas on their wall. Check out the behind the scenes shot that Jon got below this one to see where we were shooting.
The ballroom looked incredible with lighting provided by WoW Event Lighting. Such a romantic first dance…
I have to say this photobooth by Laughing Hat Photobooth Co was spectacular! This is BY FAR the VERY BEST photobooth I have ever seen. And the owners are the sweetest, most wonderful people who go out of their way to make sure you are happy. The only drawback to this was that everyone wanted to keep going back to the photobooth instead of dancing, LOL!
They made this cake cutting fun for everyone (even I was cheezin’ haha). Shannon with Frosted Fantasies always makes the dreamiest cakes that taste divine!
So many sparkler exits this year! What a fun way to end a wonderful celebration!
