Shawn and Laurie's wedding at the Sheraton in North Baltimore was easily one of my favorites of the year. This wedding was actually not on my books until one day before the wedding was on! I was called last minute about second shooting with my new friend, Lauren Swann Photography, and off course I said yes! I'd seen Lauren's work and had been wanting to shoot with her for quite a while. Luckily I got the chance, and it was a gorgeous day to be a part of!
Shawn and Laurie were a fun and carefree couple to be around on their wedding day. Despite the hustle and bustle of wedding days in general, Laurie seemed relaxed as could be and Shawn was just happy to finally see and be with his new wife. They are completely in love and you can definitely see it in their couples portraits—just the two of them.
The bride and groom both prepared for the day at the Sheraton in North Baltimore before making a short drive to Hope Lutheran Church where they later exchanged vows and became husband and wife. Back at the Sheraton, the couple enjoyed a relaxed and lighthearted evening at their reception filled with their most-cherished family and friends.
Something in particular that touched me which I still remember about this wedding is Laurie's relationship with her mother. Her father passed away and of course was unable to be at the wedding. Laurie danced with her mother for her parent dance and shed tears during, which touched my heart in the most endearing way. I have a similar relationship with my own mother can relate to her in a real way. It's special things like that that make wedding photography so worth it.
