Brittany and Greg live in New York, where she is a photo editor (yay!) and he works in finance. But because Greg grew up in the Baltimore area — and remains a huge Ravens fan — they decided to wed in Baltimore. They exchanged vows in the beautiful Catholic church — the Sacred Heart of Jesus — where his parents were married years earlier and they celebrated with a spectacular reception at the Four Seasons Baltimore. There was candlelight and mercury glass and romantic draped fabric and warm amber lighting. There was a delicate ruffled cake and an array of desserts from the 86-year-old Highlandtown bakery, Hoehn’s. There was a custom bar backdrop, designed to echo the honeycomb pattern of the couple’s invitations and carried through to the seating chart. And there was a lively jazz trio,  a rocking band that kept guests on the dance floor all night and the impeccable food and service that accompanies any event at the Four Seasons Baltimore. At the center of it all hung a mind-boggling 16-foot-wide floral installation that provided a focal point to the dance floor over which it was suspended as well as the the Four Seasons Grand Ballroom as a whole. It was a truly magnificent creation by Fleur de Lis florist and event designer Stephanie Bradshaw. Lest this post become more about the details than the people, I must mention how terrific Brittany and Greg were all day long. After their ceremony, we snuck off — in an exquisite antique Rolls Royce, no less — to Ravens Stadium so Greg could visit the beloved Johnny Unitas statue and the couple could rub Johnny’s shoe for a little luck. Alone in the park outside the stadium, they laughed together and whispered and enjoyed a few quiet moments before the whirlwind of the reception began. But even amidst the groups of friends and relatives eager and angling to spend time with them on their wedding day, Brittany and Greg carved out sweet little moments for themselves — a meaningful glance during an otherwise rowdy sharing of shots with friends (which Brittany adorably sipped as the groomsmen around her knocked back their glasses and grimaced), a quick caress during toasts and a hearty laugh as Greg serenaded Britt during their first dance. This wedding was a joy from start to finish. Here are some of my favorites from #turningterrinoni 002-SiegmanTerrinoni_00007_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch-FourSeasonsBaltimore-BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 003-SiegmanTerrinoni_00072-0009_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 004-SiegmanTerrinoni_00107-0014_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography

Brittany, her bridesmaids and the couple’s mothers got ready in a beautiful suite with sweeping waterfront views of the city. 005-SiegmanTerrinoni_00113-0015_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 006-SiegmanTerrinoni_00146-0020_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 007-SiegmanTerrinoni_00177-0025_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 008-SiegmanTerrinoni_00223-0033_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography

After a few family and wedding party photos in the church and a congratulatory phone call from a relative who couldn’t attend the wedding, we were off to see Johnny and then shoot a few quick portraits back at the Four Seasons Baltimore. 062-SiegmanTerrinoni_01692-0410_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 063-SiegmanTerrinoni_01762-0424_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 064-SiegmanTerrinoni_01882-0446_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 065-SiegmanTerrinoni_01930-0457_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 066-SiegmanTerrinoni_01986-0464_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 067-SiegmanTerrinoni_02071-0482_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 068-SiegmanTerrinoni_02066-0479_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 069-SiegmanTerrinoni_02130-0495_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography 070-SiegmanTerrinoni_02182bw-0507_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_SacredHeartOfJesusChurch_FourSeasonsBaltimore_BaltimoreWeddingPhotography
