August 31, 2016 Turf Valley Wedding in Baltimore, Maryland | Jenna + John
This Saturday’s wedding is one of the most beautiful and hilarious weddings I’ve ever photographed. Seriously, these people know how to have a good time. Buckle up, this Turf Valley wedding is one for the books.
About the Couple
Jenna and John met in 2011 through mutual friends. A few months after their first meeting, John ran into one of Jenna’s girlfriends and told her to say hi to Jenna. Her reply? “Do it yourself!” And so he did! He asked her on a date, but it was the week of Valentine’s day and they were pretty much complete strangers, so he told her to pick any day but Valentine’s day. A gesture that Jenna appreciated – who needs that extra pressure on a first date? They went to Chazz’s for Italian food and talked the night away. At the end of the night, after a few minutes of chatting in the car, Jenna proceeded to give John “a big awkward high five” to end the date, which he gladly accepted. And here we are, years later, celebrating their love and marriage!
This is one of my favorite blog posts of all time. This wedding is just beautiful. The people, the location, the decor. But not only is it beautiful, it was also an absolute blast. There are so many wonderful moments during the early part of the day, and hysterical ones through the latter part of the day. My team and I spent the better part of the evening laughing our butts off. We had a blast and so did everyone else involved. Jenna and John – thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your wedding, it was amazing and I’ve loved getting to know you! I’m so pumped to share just a sampling of my favorite images on the blog today!
