May 15, 2019 Laurainne + Holly | Elkridge Furnace Inn Wedding Photos | Baltimore, MD

Laurainne and Holly were married at the Elkridge Furnace Inn on Saturday in an amazing celebration of love. Surrounded by amazing people, two gorgeous outfit changes and a kick ass party- this was easily one of our favorite weddings ever!

The Couple

From the brides: “We met playing volleyball for Muhlenberg College, our alma mater. Laurainne hated Holly at first because she thought Holly was being recruited to take her position on the team, but she quickly warmed up to Holly. Within two months of Holly arriving at Muhlenberg, we were dating and we never really looked back. The next 7 years were a long trek to getting to where we are today. We did two years of long-distance after we graduated when our academic pursuits took us in different directions, and while it was tough and we both prepared for an inevitable growing apart, it never came. Laurainne generously agreed to move in with Holly and her sisters after their mother died unexpectedly 3 years ago, and after ensuring that we could live together semi-harmoniously (Holly has been known to be extremely messy while Laurainne likes to keep things in order), there was no question that marriage was the next step. And yet, despite having numerous conversations about marriage, Laurainne was still able to surprise Holly with a proposal. Now we are just excited to keep moving forward together and start a life of our own.”

The Wedding

Holly and Laurainne’s wedding was everything I had hoped for for them and more. We did their first look at the beautiful lake behind their home, and took portraits there before heading to EFI for their wedding ceremony. They had written the sweetest vows (including a pretty sweet volleyball reference) that had me in tears. Halfway through the evening the entire family and wedding party changed into traditional Nigerian attire and brought the party in with them when they re-entered! Here are just a few of our faves.
