BMA Wedding | Annie & Neal got hitched!

The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) is one of my favorite reception sites as a wedding photographer.  It was the perfect spot for Annie and Neal’s high-energy reception after a lovely ceremony at Loyola Memorial Chapel.  The heat index hit 110 degrees on Saturday and I think we were all a tad delirious because of this.  The super fun band, Sound Nation, had no trouble keeping everyone dancing until midnight despite the warm temps.  Thanks to my talented second shooter, Emily Hayes, for being a tremendous help all day.  I’m posting a few more images than usual….I had lots of favorites plus I was just in the editing mood!

I love me some detail shots.  Annie’s silver Vera Wang Lavender flats were a great combination of comfiness and bling.  Also take notice of the blue “rose” in her bouquet. This is actually her father’s handkerchief rolled up and inserted in the bouquet.  Annie’s sister/MOH,  Katie, was responsible for this clever idea.  The gorgeous flower arrangements were made by Karen at Flowers Market in case you’re wondering.

They both threw handfuls of baby powder in the air like an explosion. I don’t think Neal’s sister meant to get quite so much powder on herself though!  [Edit:  Okay, I now know that this was a Lebron James chalk throwing reference. Please excuse my non-sportiness.]BMA Wedding Photographer BaltimoreThe newly married couple makes their entrance below.  They’re really shy as you can probably tell. ;  )BMA Wedding Photographer BaltimoreA little disbelief and laughter during the toasts:BMA Wedding Photographer BaltimoreTwo amazing mom hugs:Baltimore Museum of Art Wedding ReceptionBaltimore Museum of Art Wedding ReceptionI love how this one turned out.  We were crunched for portrait time after the ceremony, so I set up a light/umbrella right near the reception and literally dragged Annie and Neal away for a few more shots together.Baltimore Museum of Art Wedding Reception

Congratulations Annie and Neal!  I’ll post a slideshow soon, so check back.
