I’ve known Danielle since my elementary school days. When she got in contact about having me photograph her and Brady’s Combsberry Inn wedding (a beautiful bed & breakfast on the Maryland Eastern Shore), I was over the moon excited!

The two of them wanted their special day to be a relaxed waterfront get together of their loved ones and their priority was for their guests to truly enjoy themselves. After their pre-ceremony portraits, dark grey rain clouds rolled in and we began to hear roaring thunder. As guests were shown into the Barn where their ceremony was held, it began to pour. The power went out for a brief moment – but that didn’t put a dent in Danielle’s excitement. Being a carefree bride, she chose to spend the day without shoes and, for the ceremony processional, she made her entrance from the Inn to the Barn. Danielle trekked outdoors – barefoot – through down pouring rain with the biggest smile on her face and it was incredible to witness the joy and anticipation that occurred in that very moment.

The rain clouds broke apart soon after the conclusion of their ceremony. Guests made their way to their tented reception and engaged in conversations over delicious small plates and blanket covered seats of hay. Their celebration continued as friends new and old danced into the night with their drinks in hand.

Last year, Josh and I drove to Pennsylvania for Lauren and Jamie’s Historic Shady Lane wedding. Upon our arrival, heavy rain began to pour – but the weather cleared up just in time for their lovely outdoor ceremony in front of a greenhouse! They first met a few years back (through their church) and are two kind, caring souls. They have a strong passion for helping others and, to give you an idea, here’s a little snippet from Lauren about what she does and how they met:

I am an artist at heart and a lover of people. My heart is for missions and traveling the world to help broken people heal. I was taught film photography early on then went on to do weddings for an organization in LA. I found that the posing and demands of photography were just not for me, but I wanted to use my love of photography to help people some how! I went on to take an internship in Cambodia to teach photography to girls who had been rescued from sex trafficking. This was used alongside art therapy so that they could express their feelings, thoughts and emotion through the incredible art of photography.

Jamie and I met through our church in January 2014. I saw him in this great coat and was instantly attracted. We truly got to know each other over the next few months through our group of friends. We always ended up talking to each other or walking together so, before we were even dating, we pretty much knew that this was it for both of us. Our foundation is our faith and our mission to live our lives as a reflection of His love to this world. I had never met a man that I respected and that made me laugh as much as Jamie!

A huge thank you goes out to Britt – one of Lauren’s bridesmaids and owner of Woven & Wed!
