For devoted Star Wars fans and science geeks that loved the idea of exchanging vows under a starry sky (with the exact sky from their first date, mind you. During the ceremony, the sky transitioned to their wedding date! Technology is amazing…), the Maryland Science Center was quite the perfect fit for Kristina and Ed’s Baltimore wedding! These two are so perfect together – they have a quiet, calm sensibility about them but I just love how with one look from Kristina, Ed’s face breaks out into the biggest smile you’ve ever seen. You may remember their adorable love from our Federal Hill engagement session… can you recognize Ed? I almost didn’t! 😉
The bridal party got ready at the Lord Baltimore Hotel on Baltimore St. It was the perfect historic setting to contrast the contemporary architecture of the Science Center where they exchanged vows and celebrated as husband and wife.
Kristina gave her girls gold Kate Spade charm bracelets that had the words ‘Partner In Crime’ engraved and were the perfect accessory with their bordeaux bridesmaid gowns. All of Kristina’s jewelry was exquisite; just the right amount of sparkle to create a timeless and classic look. The necklace Ed gave her brought tears to my eyes!
Ed has 4 brothers. My second shooter (who happens to be my husband!) has 5 brothers, so he was completely at home with the idea of lots of men getting ready together in a small hotel room. There were so many fun, candid moments of guys just being guys.
We searched for the perfect location for their first look and at the last minute, stumbled on the overlook to the hotel’s ballroom. This intimate series is one of my favorites from their day.
