September 21, 2016 Thorpewood Wedding Photos | Thurmont, Maryland | Leanna + Andrew

This Saturday’s ThorpeWood Wedding was filled with so much love and emotion. Nearly everyone cried, including me, many times. It was such a beautiful day, celebrating two incredible humans.

About the Couple

Mentioned many times during various wedding speeches and even during their vows, Andrew pined for Leanna for quite some time (literally years) before she finally accepted his offer to go out in 2013- realizing, in her words, that he wasn’t so bad. Over time, they developed a deep friendship, and in 2014 that friendship turned into a relationship, which turned into love. They moved in together, adopted a sister cat for Leanna’s cat, moved again, and mutually decided to get married. Andrew wanted to do an official proposal anyway, and they had agreed on no public proposals. Leanna guessed his proposal plan immediately, making it difficult to surprise her. The next day, they went to dinner at their favorite restaurant and where Andrew proposed after a delicious meal.  As Leanna says, “So really, the lesson of the story is that if you guess your surprise you’re definitely going to get what you least expect and maybe even what you requested not happen, but you will still cry a little and then you can eat dessert.”

The Wedding

Leanna and Andrew’s wedding at ThorpeWood was as beautiful as it was emotional. Leanna’s blush wedding gown was absolutely gorgeous as were the flower by Local Color Flowers. There were so many wonderful personal touches throughout the day. They had a friend officiate the ceremony (who did an absolutely amazing job) – they had friends perform the ceremony music – and as soon as we heard it start, Leanna, her mother and I were all in tears, which was only the first of many times I cried. All weddings are wonderful reminders of how loved a couple is, and this day was a beautiful tribute to Leanna and Andrew. In short, it was an amazing day, for two really incredible human beings, and I’m so honored they chose me to capture it all.

Huge thanks to my friend Farid for being amazing and second shooting with me!
