HARFORD MARYLAND BACKYARD WEDDING PHOTOS

Backyard weddings are my favorite.  In the middle of a crazy busy wedding photography season like we’ve had this year, I love the relaxed feel of a Maryland backyard wedding.  Where the focus is on the right stuff.  And a bride and groom who value photography and details just makes it perfect.  This would be where I would tell you a little more about Dawn and Joe, but let me tell you something.. From the moment Dawn first emailed us about being her Hartford Maryland backyard wedding photographers, I was struck by how she has such a way with words. And I really couldn’t tell you about their love better than she already did: “I don’t think either Joe or I have any one defining moment where we both knew this was it, that I was the one for him or that he was the one for me. It sounds so anticlimactic to not have a defining moment but it also didn’t just sneak up on us either. I think we both mutually had a pure instinctual and gut feeling about the other, that there was never really any question about us not sharing our lives and future together. Being around him felt natural, like I’d been doing it my whole life. On top of love, we have a deep respect for the other, trust, loyalty, confidence, comfort, an actual liking for the person he/she is; If I need advice, or he has exciting news, we always seek the other out first. During our good and bad times, we rely on each other, and I think our relationship has been strengthened by the bonds we’ve developed that far exceed mere attraction. Having a foundation in a relationship like the one we’ve developed has truly given me, personally, the gift of unadulterated calmness. When life gets hectic, he’s that calm in the storm, and the best diffuser of an intense situation. His gift of humor lightens my life and I’m always turning towards him. We may not know the defining moment when we fell in love, or how or when we ‘knew’. But for me, it’s every moment he’s in my life reinforcing that gut instinct I have that continues to tell me everyday that he’s the one.” I told you, right?  Oh my gosh! I feel like I’m reading a Nicholas Sparks novel or something!  They worked with Salvage Sisters Weddings to create the most perfectly rustic blush gold wedding on their family friends gorgeous Harford Co Maryland property.  I can’t wait for you to see all of the pretty details!hartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0463hartford maryland backyard wedding photoshartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0465hartford maryland backyard wedding photographerIsn’t this such a unique engagement ring?hartford maryland backyard wedding photographerhartford maryland backyard wedding photosThis front porch swing kind of stole my heart from the moment we arrived.  It reminds me of  a southern estate out in the country. And it didn’t hurt that the porch was just filled with beautiful diffused light, which is a Baltimore wedding photographer’s dream!  So of course I incorporated it into a lot of Dawn’s bridal detail photos.  You’ll be able to spot it in quite a few of these images!hartford maryland backyard wedding photographerhartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0470hartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0471hartford maryland backyard wedding photoshartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0473hartford maryland backyard wedding photosI love love love that she found such a meaningful way to keep her dad close to her on her wedding day.hartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0475hartford maryland backyard wedding photographerhartford maryland backyard wedding photoshartford maryland backyard wedding photoshartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0479hartford maryland backyard wedding photographerhartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0481hartford maryland backyard wedding photographerhartford maryland backyard wedding photoshartford maryland backyard wedding photographerhartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0485Dawn, you are such a stunning bride!harford maryland backyard wedding photoshartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0487hartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0488harford maryland backyard wedding photosCheck out Joe’s Pink Floyd tie.  Its the perfect mix of classy and fun!hartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0490hartford maryland backyard wedding photoshartford-maryland-backyard-wedding-photos_0492True confession time- I’m kind of obsessed with these stars.  We have two of them at our house, so I got really excited when I spotted this one!hartford maryland backyard wedding photoshartford maryland backyard wedding photosIsn’t this just the prettiest most peaceful backdrop for a backyard wedding ceremony?
