Lizzy & Brandon – Maryland Zoo Wedding

Apr 9, 2013

If you had told me in 9th grade when Lizzy and I were playing on the freshman volleyball team (read freshman not JV or Varsity, we weren’t that special) and having sleepovers and pool parties, that I would one day be photographing her wedding, I never would have believed it. I hardly believed it either as she was working her wedding date so I could photograph it. Lizzy and Brandon met in law school. She used to think that he thought she was weird because she and her friends were always goofing off and practicing their sweet dance moves in the hallways. Once she was practicing something totally ridiculous when Brandon stepped off the elevator. Totally embarrassed she continued dancing. That’s just so Lizzy if you ask me. She is a charmer, a total sweetheart, a crazy amazing athlete, and such a loyal friend to everyone. It doesn’t surprise me one bit that she was able to capture Brandon’s heart forever.  I was absolutely honored to photograph Lizzy and Brandon’s wedding at the Baltimore Zoo this past Saturday. It was filled with pink gorgeousness, laughs, penguins, and a ton of love. Enjoy the pics!!

Venue: The Maryland Zoo

Ceremony: Holy Cross

Catering: Rouge Catering

Florist: Bella Fiori Flowers

Photobooth: Perskie

DJ: Danny Serpico (friend of the bride and groom)

Cake: Sheila Mongeon (friend of the bride and groom)

Oh ya know, we had time, so why not swing by the Crossfit gym to get a workout in.

Dude. How awesome is this??

It was such a beautiful ceremony in the church that Lizzy’s parents got married in and Lizzy was baptized at.

Oh man, I am so in love with all of these, they are all my favorites.

Appropriately dressed, I’d say!

Dance buddies. 🙂

Gangnam style is still happening at weddings. And when you know how to dance to it, I am 100% ok with that.

    I was already planning on commenting on how amazing her arms and back were from the pictures of her getting into her dress and then the crossfit photos happened and this lady over here turned green with jealousy.

    I love everything about this! The colors, the penguin cake topper, the REAL penguin (who I think I know, but that’s another story), the bridal portraits. Ugh. Amazing! I wish I could have been there!
