Chanel & Torrey

I’m finally allowed to share this amazing wedding with you all!! I have been dying to blog about this but had to keep it all a secret because it has a small feature in Baltimore Bride magazine – so many other good things in there, make sure to pick up a copy! This past July (11th to be exact) I had the pleasure of photographing Torrey and Chanel’s wedding at the Merion in New Jersey. It was such a great day. Between the fun bridal party and family to the amazing vendors they chose to work with – the whole day was just perfect and couldn’t have gone any better. I don’t want to write all that much because I want you all to get to the amazing photos!!
