I absolutely love the Four Seasons Baltimore! And I truly loved photographing this wedding. All day as I shot I couldn’t help but think how excited I was to blog it because of how much I loved the venue. Living in DC we don’t get a lot of really dense urban weddings with tall buildings in the background (or really experience tall buildings much at all). As an architect/photographer I loved being able to incorporate verticality in to the photos. So between the urban location, the gorgeous space at the Four Seasons Baltimore, the beautiful lines throughout the day and a gem of a couple we were set up for a perfect day.
Falling for the Four Seasons Baltimore
Our couple lives in New York City but the groom grew up in the Baltimore area so they chose to do the wedding back home in Maryland. They selected the Four Seasons Baltimore for their wedding venue because of the wonderful harbor views, the outdoor terrace and the large and comfortable banquet rooms. Not to mention the spa at the hotel is a huge bonus too!
The flowers and decor were all white with touches of green. I love a classic, elegant and timeless wedding with a little edge to it, like the slit in this bride’s dress. The acrylic pedestals at the altar and the mix of square and rectangular tables perfectly captured the mix of modern elements paired with beautifully classic flowers.
The bridal party was intimate, only the bride’s two sisters and her best friend, and the same number on the groom’s side. I strongly believe that a small wedding party is key to a calm and enjoyable celebration for the bride and groom. And this bride and groom deserved the most wonderful day ever.
I can sincerely say that this bride made me want to be a better person. The whole day she was trying to make sure everyone else was okay, their flowers were pinned, they were comfortable and that all were having a good time. She was truly a selfless and unbelievably caring person that we can all strive to be more like ever day. I was honored to be a part of their day and worked my darnedest to get them the best damn photos ever!
