The pagoda in Patterson Park was the quintessential backdrop for Melissa + Eric’s first look. Eric proposed here and they live a block away. Right before Melissa walked up behind him, Eric had a huge smile on his face full of excitement and anticipation. They looked, they turned, they hugged; it was an incredibly sweet moment for the two of them to share.
They were after a simple, classic look and chose the perfect church to be married in. St. Ignatius, designed by Long and Pittar, opened in 1856 and remains one of the cornerstones of the Mt. Vernon neighborhood in Baltimore. The magnificent interior was a wonderful setting for the beautiful mass.
I’m tellin’ ya, these two were quite a couple. You’d never guess they started the day anxious to be in front of the camera! We have many more incredible moments to share with you…part deux will be ready for viewing tomorrow!
