Sweet Joy-filled Garden Wedding at Gramercy Mansion | Maria & Greg | Maryland Wedding Photographer
When Maria first reached out to me about doing her wedding at Gramercy Mansion for an afternoon ceremony, I was beyond thrilled to return to the gardens and (Yes) the gazebo you continually see on my instafeed. It would probably be the easiest game of Where’s Waldo actually. “Where’s the gazebo?” And that gazebo is the exact spot that they chose for their intimate ceremony! (Happy Dance!)
A Budding Relationship
Upstairs in the mansion suite, Maria and her girls were getting ready. Music blared, glasses clinked and laughter rang throughout the halls. These girls were a blast! What was even more special was watching Maria and her soon-to-be stepdaughter get ready together. The squeals could break your eardrums (and I wouldn’t have it any other way) They even picked out a special bracelet for Bridget to wear, and she insisted on giving her the spotlight multiple times during the morning. How sweet is that? #momgoals
Something About Maria…
The entire garden was alive with anticipation. Butterflies flitted all around. Greg and his daughter walk down the aisle together sharing in a can-never-be-duplicated daddy daughter smile. They were both so happy to welcome Maria into their family and it really showed. This was it. Wedding Time! Maria enters through the grove of trees and she just couldn’t stop smiling or bouncing on her toes, and when Greg saw her- Man! The grin on that groom-to-be was unmistakable! I’m telling you, Maria is just one of those people that spreads ALL the good energy and joy. She was so excited to get married to Greg. Greg was so excited to marry her, and by the end of all the sweet tears, passionate kiss and cheering, everyone was full to the brim with excitement! It was a party in the gardens. Complete with butterflies!
Maria & Greg,
Joy and sweetness. Love and compassion. Those are the four words I would use to describe your wonderful new family. I wish you the very best and I hope to see you next year! I don’t think I could go a whole year without a daily dose of Maria, Greg & Bridget!- I just realized that I could’ve made Sound of Music puns the entire time…ah well. Next time 😉
With Love, Amanda
