October 4, 2016 Pond View Farm Wedding | Maryland Photographer | Hannah + Meredith

I have been looking forward to Hannah and Meredith‘s Pond View Farm wedding for literally years. They booked me more than two years out, and we’ve been talking about it for longer. I love these guys so much.

The Couple

I stole this (and condensed it) from their wedding website, Meredith did such a great job writing it!

Hannah and Meredith met in the most romantic way possible– the internet. Somewhere in Meredith’s profile it said, “I love people who can teach me something.” Hannah messaged her with a simple “the only thing I can teach you about is food.” And so it began. After several days of texting and talking on the phone, they decided to meet.

Dinner grew cold as they talked for hours and the restaurant staff started putting chairs on the tables around them. At some point during the conversation, Hannah stopped Meredith mid-sentence and asked “did you just use the word ‘ethnocentric’ in casual conversation?” At that moment, Hannah knew Meredith was the one for her, even if she was wearing an awful studded belt and oversized jeans.

The Proposal

In March 2015, Hannah planned an extra special trip to Walt Disney World for Meredith’s Spring Break from law school. Little did she know, Meredith had something special planned for her as well. The first night in Orlando, Meredith and Hannah went to dinner in Animal Kingdom and then, with the night still young, Hannah suggested they walk around Downtown Disney before heading back to the room. Trying to play it cool, which does not come naturally for Meredith, she agreed.

After returning to the resort, the two managed to get lost searching for their room, as Hannah is directionally challenged and Meredith’s mind was focused on what she was going to say when they returned to the room. Hannah opened the door of the hotel room to see, amongst the candlelight, an arrangement of daisies, her favorite, and a trail of rose pedals. “I love you so much and I want to spend the rest of my life with you,” Meredith said. Not something that goes unsaid between these two, Hannah remained oblivious to what would happen next. Realizing this, Meredith began to stutter and her face turned many shades of red. Meredith got down on one knee and showed Hannah the ring she’d been designing in secret for over month. “Oh my god, of course,” Hannah replied.

The Wedding

I love these guys so much, I knew their wedding would be amazing, but there were no expectations too high for this day. There was Chipotle (which I indulged in as well!), nintendo, surprise puppies, a french fry bar, and late night pizza. There was laughter with friends, vows that brought tears to everyone in the room (and a fairly loud “well, shit” from one of the guests – hilarious), loads of awesome dance moves, and so, so much love. I couldn’t be happier to have been a part of their day, and I’m so glad that through all this, we’ve become friends.

And for fun, five and a half couples that I’ve photographed were in attendance at this wedding (including the brides) and it was so cool and a once in a lifetime thing that I had to get a photo with them all!

In chronological order: Jamie and Tommy, Chelsea and Pete, Eden and Ryan (who was missing but is represented by a slice of lemon in the photo), Megan and Danny, Lori and Matt and finally Hannah and Meredith!hannah-meredith-pond-view-farm-wedding_0760
