February 24, 2016 Laura + Chris | Westminster Hall and Burying Grounds Wedding | Baltimore, MD
Laura and Chris met in 2012 on Match.com after Laura signed up to meet some locals and see more of Baltimore. She thought she was only going to be in town a few short months for work. Then, Chris came along and changed everything. They had their first date at Max’s Taphouse in Fells Point, which brought their wedding day full-circle. Chris brews his own beer and he whipped up a giant batch for their guests to enjoy at the reception and bottled even more as favors for guests to take home at the end of the night. One of my favorite moments was the first time Laura got emotional. Seeing Laura get teary-eyed, her niece said to her, “Just remember all the dishes you’ll have to do tomorrow.” From then on, every time Laura felt tears coming on, she would say “doing dishes” as her own personal mantra. Laura and Chris were all smiles all day, it was contagious. Even now, days later, I still can’t stop smiling thinking about their day.
Westminster Hall and Burying Grounds didn’t disappoint, a historic church and burial ground where Edgar Allan Poe is buried. It provided a unique, meaningful backdrop to Laura and Chris’s careful planning.
