If you didn’t see the first half of Frank and Jean’s wedding at the Johns Hopkins, University Baptist Church on the blog yesterday, hop on back there to take a look at their ceremony and portraits at the church before we all headed to the Valley Country Club for their reception. I’ve photographed several weddings at the Valley Country Club and it really has a unique feel to it. The front porch is a beautiful location to take in the evening air, the main floor and ballroom have a great charm and the bar filled with dark wood and Art Donovan’s sports memorabilia is pure man cave! It’s got something for everyone is what I’m trying to say!
Jean and Frank were introduced into their reception straight into their first dance. I was lucky enough to see a few of their dance moves during our engagement session together, so I knew they were not going to simply rock back and forth on the dance floor. Following their first dance, a close family friend provided a blessing for dinner then toasts. As the daylight faded outside and just before cake cutting I took Frank and Jean out in front of the mansion for some beautiful twilight shots. After cutting the cake, the rest of the night was filled with dancing by Frank and Jean and family and friends. My good friend and outstanding videographer, Matt Buerhaus was there through it all to document the video of their whole day. Check his page out for their upcoming video spotlight!
Jean and Frank, I had a great time meeting you at your engagement shoot and was so thrilled to be a part of your wedding day! Thank you for including me in your plans!
