Sydney and Greg booked me for a wedding that I looked forward to for more than a year. Not only was I curious to see how Sydney would pull off a color scheme that heavily featured her favorite hue of gray. Nor was it her intriguing plans for a reception bar made of wooden ladders or her vision of friends holding big wooden doors at the end of the aisle for her processional, mimicking the look of church doors opening as the bride and her father make their grand entrance. It wasn’t even that she occasionally sent me sweet notes throughout the year, telling me how much she loved seeing my work on Facebook and how excited she was for her own wedding photos. No, I looked forward to Sydney and Greg’s wedding day because I knew — I just knew! — that it would be oh so much fun. I could not have been more right. Despite the gloomy day and the rain that forced their outdoor ceremony indoors, Sydney and Greg had an amazingly wonderful wedding day. From the love-themed shirts and statement necklaces that Sydney ordered for her bridesmaids and the fabulous relationship she has with her three younger sisters to the parade of thoughtful surprises — something old, new, borrowed and blue — that Sydney planned for Greg and their personal, hilarious and touching vows to each other, the day was a joy to photograph. Oh, and her dress. The gown — in the very lightest of blush pinks from Monique Lhuillier — was a confection of tulle and lace. It was so very beautiful! My most favorite part of the day, by far, was the way that both Sydney and Greg so obviously reveled in the company and affection of their closest friends and family members. They were so excited to see each and every person who approached them. That kind of joy and happiness is always a pleasure to photograph. My friend and assistant, Sam, joined me again for this wedding and his photos are mixed in with mine below. Here are some of my favorites from Sydney and Greg’s wonderful day:0002-BlumWilliams_00006-0002_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0003-BlumWilliams_00043-0009_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0004-BlumWilliams_00027-0005_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0005-BlumWilliams_00175-0029_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0006-BlumWilliams_00357-0058_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0007-BlumWilliams_00754-0141_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0008-BlumWilliams_00259-0041_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0009-BlumWilliams_00385-0062_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

Sydney started a business, the Periwinkle Pig Gift Company, that creates really creative and stylish gift collections. (No wicker baskets of wine glasses and cork screws here!) It was no surprise that she put together really great and personalized gift crates for her bridesmaids and cigar boxes of gifts for the groomsmen. 0010-BlumWilliams_00214-0035_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

The parade of gifts — delivered by her bridesmaids to Greg’s hotel room — begins. Old: a grocer’s sign with his last name. New: a handsome watch. Borrowed: his grandfather’s cuff links. Blue: a giant tower of PBR (which include his fraternity’s seal on the can).0011-BlumWilliams_00310-0048_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0012-BlumWilliams_00340-0052_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0013-BlumWilliams_00458-0077_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0014-BlumWilliams_00519-0091_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0015-BlumWilliams_00528-0094_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0016-BlumWilliams_00529-0095_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0017-BlumWilliams_00483-0085_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

Sam started the day with the guys and these images of Greg getting ready and the gift delivery were shot by him.0018-BlumWilliams_00577-0108_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

I love the look on the faces of Sydney and Greg’s fathers as they opened their very, very bright wedding day socks from the couple.0019-BlumWilliams_00592-0114_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0020-BlumWilliams_00617-0118_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0021-BlumWilliams_00627-0121_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

Meanwhile, I wondered if Sydney’s wedding gown could be seen from outside the hotel, where she and her girls were getting ready. I spy, with my little eye …0022-BlumWilliams_00109-0019_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0023-BlumWilliams_00079-0016_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0024-BlumWilliams_00805-0150_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

Caitlin (at left, in the next photo), a bestie of the bride and whose father officiated the wedding, rehearses her own remarks for the ceremony as two of Sydney’s sisters listen. 0025-BlumWilliams_00771bw-0146_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

Outnumbered even more than usual by girls, Sydney’s father looks on as wedding preparations continue. 0028-BlumWilliams_00983-0176_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

Sydney is so expressive that she was particularly fun to photograph. (Remember their sunflower engagement session!)0029-BlumWilliams_00988-0177_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0030-BlumWilliams_01077-0192_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0031-BlumWilliams_01084bw-0196_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0032-BlumWilliams_01124-0207_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

A few quick portraits of the bride, looking absolutely lovely.0033-BlumWilliams_01204-0217_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0034-BlumWilliams_01205bw-0220_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0035-BlumWilliams_01248-0230_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0036-BlumWilliams_01332-0248_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

And then finally, after the accident that had shut down Interstate 83 cleared, it was time to head to the Evergreen.0037-BlumWilliams_01392-0258_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0038-BlumWilliams_01469-0271_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0039-BlumWilliams_01548-0287_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

Despite our best no-rain dances, showers continued during the time Sydney and Greg were to see each other for the first time and we were to begin shooting wedding party and family photos. Fortunately, the Evergreen has some lovely covered outdoor areas and we went with our rain photo plan.0040-BlumWilliams_01542-0286_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0041-BlumWilliams_01553-0289_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0042-BlumWilliams_01591-0298_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0043-BlumWilliams_01647bw-0311_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0044-BlumWilliams_01699-0321_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0045-BlumWilliams_01717-0324_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0046-BlumWilliams_01727-0328_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0047-BlumWilliams_01773-0335_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0048-BlumWilliams_01880bw-0355_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0049-BlumWilliams_01896-0359_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

And then, just as we were starting wedding party photos, the rain stopped. Entirely. It was amazing! So we dashed around the property, seeking out little pockets of light amidst the grayness and hitting all the spots that Sydney and Greg wanted to include in their photos.0050-BlumWilliams_02081-0390_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0051-BlumWilliams_02035-0384_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0052-BlumWilliams_02082-0392_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0053-BlumWilliams_02113-0400_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0054-BlumWilliams_02128-0403_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

The gorgeous flowers — which, incidentally, went perfectly with gray! — from My Flower Box Events.0064-BlumWilliams_02421-0440_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

And then it was time to get married.0065-BlumWilliams_02663-0481_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0066-BlumWilliams_02685-0486_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0067-BlumWilliams_02763-0499_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

The big entrance from behind the doors. (I love the next behind-the-scenes shot on the far right that Sam took from the back of the aisle.)0068-BlumWilliams_02858-0517_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0069-BlumWilliams_02882bw-0525_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0070-BlumWilliams_02887-0527_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

I love wedding ceremonies that are funny and moving and poignant and personal, all rolled into one. Sydney and Greg’s was just that — including the unscripted moment when Sydney somehow worked the web site address of her gift company into her vows!0071-BlumWilliams_02916-0535_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0072-BlumWilliams_02924-0536_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0073-BlumWilliams_02945-0542_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0074-BlumWilliams_02993-0557_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0075-BlumWilliams_02974-0551_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0076-BlumWilliams_02997-0558_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0077-BlumWilliams_03028-0566_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0078-BlumWilliams_03057-0575_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0079-BlumWilliams_03061-0576_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0080-BlumWilliams_03073-0580_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0081-BlumWilliams_03043-0570_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0082-BlumWilliams_03123-0597_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0083-BlumWilliams_03126bw-0599_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

Married!0084-BlumWilliams_03139-0603_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

As the ceremony went on, it grew brighter and brighter outside, until gorgeous sunlight was streaming in the windows that framed Sydney and Greg as they were pronounced husband and wife. The gorgeous light remained just long enough for us to shoot a couple of post-ceremony photos in the woods before the skies turned overcast again.0085-BlumWilliams_03171-0616_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0086-BlumWilliams_03189bw-0619_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0087-BlumWilliams_03278-0646_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0088-BlumWilliams_03265bw-0643_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0089-BlumWilliams_03301-0652_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0090-BlumWilliams_03315-0655_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0091-BlumWilliams_03326-0658_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

I’m not even sure what to call this piece that My Flower Box Events constructed for the head table. An arbor? An amazing flower-and-greenery-topped head table accoutrement? No matter the name. It was gorgeous. And I took sooo many pictures of it!0101-BlumWilliams_03704-0749_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0102-BlumWilliams_03718-0751_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0103-BlumWilliams_04221-0893_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer

Sydney and Greg offered beef jerky, made by a friend, as favors at the end of the reception. I love that Classic Catering dressed it up with fancy flower arrangements next to the, you know, jerky. “Mark my words,” Sydney told me early in the afternoon as she and her bridesmaids started getting ready. “Beef jerky is going to be the hot wedding favor by this time next year.” Hmmmm.0131-BlumWilliams_04686-1017_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographer 0132-BlumWilliams_05174-1130_JenniferMcMenaminPhotography_Evergreen-Museum-Carriage-House_Baltimore-wedding-photography_Baltimore-wedding-photographerMany, many congratulations, Sydney + Greg.
