ELEGANT AND JOYFUL COLUMBIA WEDDING | ERIN AND ANDREW | MARYLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | AMANDA MACPHEE STUDIOS
I was looking forward to this wedding SO MUCH! Especially after all the fun we had at their engagement session! Not only is it with the two sweetest people, but it was going to be in the hills of the Shrine of St. Patrick! Excited would be an understatement because that place is GORGEOUS! First looks are just so amazing! Erin and Andrew both started off a little tense and nervous, but once they saw each other and shared that beautiful moment of ‘We are getting married today!’ with each other, they both relaxed pretty quickly and really started soaking in the day. Bringing their flower girl over for a first look and frolic through the fields was just the cherry on top! The adoration shared between these three was just so adorable. This was a beautiful, relaxing and elegant day. And in all honesty, the BEST way to to start off the fall wedding season!
The cool September air breezed in and around the columns of the shrine atop the hills of Columbia, Maryland. Off to the side, there rests a small little garden brimming with trees. And underneath those trees, blissful peals of laughter bounce off the hills as a bride and groom twirl around dancing and running with their sweet flower girl. For as long as they have known each other, they have known this little angel. Watching her twirl around in her little dress, puffing up like a cloud, the two smile in absolute joy. This day has only just begun and its already perfect.
After the breaking of the glass and their sweet kiss under the autumn sun, Erin and Andrew are now husband and wife! The joy on their faces was really quite beautiful and I just loved watching them be with all their family and friends, sharing their joy of this wonderful day!
Erin and Andrew, thank you so much for trusting me to capture this beautiful day for you! I loved being apart of the intimate gathering you shared with your family and friends and I loved watching you guys just be so in love. Here’s to you! Best, Amanda
