So, I am super late posting this blog on this Maryland wedding but we were waiting to publish this because these images were submitted to another publication. :)
Snow was still on the ground when Ricky and Brian got married, but the love and happiness inside the Overhills Mansion was more than enough to keep everyone warm. The couple braved the cold for some elegant photos outside where they stood happily between the mansion's grand entrance pillars for some photos. The grooms both wore purple vests and bowties representing the color they had chosen for their wedding, while one wore a grey suit and the other wore a white one, creating beautiful contrast.
After the photos, Ricky and Brian were introduced to their guests as newlyweds and the reception began shortly after noon. They were joined by their two matrons of honor and several other attendants, as well as friends and family that were there to celebrate one of the most important days of their lives.
A tower of decadent cupcakes awaited the guests and acted as Ricky and Brian's cake for the wedding. Atop the cupcakes was a fantastic display of Ricky and Brian fending off the evil empire Stormtroopers with their handy lightsabres in a full Star Wars lego display.
Following the heartfelt “I Do's” and the rest of the ceremony, Ricky and Brian's guests attended a one hour cocktail party as I captured photos of the newlyweds. They held a red lego heart between them as they shared their first kisses as a married couple and couldn't help but beam from ear to ear as they had their photos taken. They made my job so easy!
Since this was a day wedding, everyone had said their well wishes to the couple and had left around 3PM, giving Ricky and Brian time to themselves to go for a romantic dinner and enjoy their first evening out as newlyweds.
Congratulations Ricky and Brian!
