A classic elegance mixed with pure love made for this Hotel Monaco Baltimore wedding to be such a spectacular event.
We first joined Stephenie and Dexter’s love story during an engagement session at the Rawlings Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland during the summer of 2016. Stephenie’s attention to detail and stellar style, coupled with her and Dexter’s contagious personalities were showcased during this shoot as we learned more about their beautiful beginnings.
Their story continued later that year with this November Baltimore wedding. The morning of her wedding day, Stephenie was pampered and showered with love from those she adored the most. Her and her groom had also arranged for an exchanging of gifts – handwritten letters and sweet fragrances that reminded them of each other – as preparation for the day ahead. Stephenie and Dexter locked eyes for the first time on their wedding day during an intimate first look in the spectacular Hotel Monaco. Dexter’s bride gracefully swept the grand staircase with her Jason Alexander embroidered lace wedding gown as she approached her groom with the greatest of joys. The two spent a few moments reflecting on their journey to marriage and shared in the excitement for what was to come. The bride then tucked away, ready to join her heart together with the one whom she loved the most.
Guests were invited to an early afternoon indoor ceremony at the hotel. As they arrived, all were greeted by exquisite details and sentiments close to the bride and groom’s heart. The ceremony was filled with emotion and love, leaving no dry eye in the room! Stephenie and Dexter’s emotional wedding vows were so moving and perfectly displayed the deep connection the two share for one another.
Following the ceremony, all in attendance were invited to an indoor cocktail hour and lunch reception on the property. Tables were set with fine touches of rose gold and blooming florals, complete with love scriptures that were presented as table numbers. A marble-brushed cake, soft uplighting, and delicious foods were also included in this luxurious hotel reception. The newlyweds spent the evening with friends and family, dancing the night away to celebrate the end of their wedding day, but the beginning of their next chapter together!
Stephenie and Dexter, we were honored to be able to capture the moments of your special day for you. Your wedding was full of faith, hope, and love, and we wish you all of those things in increasing measure in the days to come. Congratulations again!
(We had the opportunity to capture more memories with this wonderful couple in November 2017 at their anniversary shoot at the Glenview Mansion!)
