LIZ + TOM: A RAINY MARYLAND WEDDING

Their love is simple and straight-forward—connection in its purest form. You can see it when they look at each other: there’s something unspoken, but unmistakable, a quiet respect and tenderness. And it spreads beyond them, to their family, their friends; Liz and Tom are surrounded by community. It was an honor witness when they wed, and even more so to tell their story today with these images.

MEAGHAN + CHRIS: AN EASTERN SHORE WEDDING

There’s something really beautiful about unconventional, intimate weddings. They’re less cookie-cutter, more focused on the details, more tightly knit. When Meaghan and Chris described their vision for their small, September wedding on the Eastern Shore, I knew it was an affair I wouldn’t want to miss—even though my newborn would be only three weeks old at the time.

I recently commented to Margaret and Todd that if their wedding day was any indicator, their marriage was going to be off-the-charts fun. And I meant it: these two are wild about each other, thrive off each others’ laughter, and are against-all-odds committed to turning every lemon they encounter into the most succulent of lemonades.

So, when overcast skies gave way to rain – right in the middle of their family and wedding party photos – they donned their biggest smiles, passed around adorable (and matching, I might add) grey umbrellas, and kept going. They might have hoped for sun, but you’d never know it, looking at the images below. And although it meant a wet hour or so for this photographer,* I have to admit they’re some of my favorite images in the bunch. Besides, what’s a little rain on the happiest day of your life?
