When Susan and Will said they dreamed of a fairy tale Brookside Gardens Maryland wedding, I knew our team would be in for a treat.
Susan and Will began their love story after meeting at Yale University in the fall of 2015. The two grew fond of one another during their time on campus and began dating when they realized they shared many common interests. Susan and Will pursued careers across the country, which led to periods of long distance between the two. As with any fairy tale though, the two found their way back to each other and eventually settled down in Maryland.
Susan and Will engaged privately when she was visiting him on one of her long distance visits. Will asked her to be his forever after enjoying a quiet, peaceful morning together at his home in Madison, Wisconsin. Susan celebrated this new milestone with a styled bridal portrait session at Tudor Place prior to her big day.
Their magical Brookside Gardens wedding was the perfect mix of romance, intimacy, and love. The bride and groom adore natural greenery and blooms and wanted their event to display these elements in a grand way. Floral and nature-themed decor, gold-toned signs, a Polaroid guestbook, and soft string lights were some of the many features that exemplified this garden party. To add to the ambiance of the day, Susan and Will’s ceremony included readings and quotes from some of their favorite poets and musicians. Each detail of their event embodied not only their dream wedding escape, but their kind and gentle personalities. All of those in attendance witnessed the coming together of two people whose connection runs deeper than no other.
Susan and Will are excited to begin this new chapter in their lives as they continue to do the things they love, such as exploring parks and gardens and simply enjoying life together. Being a small part of their journey has been an incredible experience, and I wish them nothing but the best for the future!
