Heather and Tim ~ October 3, 2009 ~ Baltimore, MD

posted by Kelly

Fall, fall glorious fall. My favorite season of the year. The weather, the colors, the freshness….pumpkin lattes, cinnamon candles, cozy blankets, good books….I just love this time of year! I also enjoy shooting fall weddings so much. No more swampy July days peeling my dress clothes off after a full day’s shoot.

Heather and Tim’s wedding day was nothing short of perfection. The weather was RIDICULOUSLY amazing. Low 70’s, sunny, breezy, no humidity…ahhhhh.

It’s so hard to adequately describe the tone of the their wedding. It was beautiful, thoughtful, simple, well-planned, personal, intimate, celebratory, I could go on and on. There was no bridal party, just Tim and Heather— and to be honest, I wouldn’t have noticed anyone else. I mentioned in their teaser how intense their ceremony was. I mean that in the best way possible. We see a LOT of weddings and it is always an interesting case study of human behavior when you witness formal ceremonies. Some couples get giddy, others aloof and shy, still others very astute and serious. Heather and Tim were ELECTRIC. The eye contact was palpable. The love and admiration these two have for each other was tangible. Sitting just a few feet away from them I found it hard to concentrate on shooting pictures because I was so swept up in their eyes. It was so awesome and it made me appreciate them so much as a couple. It also set the tone for the whole day’s celebration.

Their details were so well thought out. Distinctly fall, classy and crisp. Heather did her homework on Etsy getting her hairpiece, jewelry and purse online. Her ivory chiffon dress was perfect on her ivory skin. Throw in some divine coral heels and I am a happy camper. Enjoy some details.

The adorable flower girls and sisters. By far one of the funniest entrances by flower girls. Let’s just say these flower balls became soccer balls and baseballs all at once.

The ceremony was held at the exquisite Lovely Lane United Methodist Church in Baltimore, Maryland. The church was so beautiful and ornate. The paintings on the ceiling were heavenly, literally.

Group shout out.

One of the funnier family photos following the ceremony. I can only empathize as I can imagine our kids would do the same thing after this many hours of having to “cooperate” and “be quiet”.

We went down to the Inner Harbor for Tim and Heather’s private session. They chose this overlook at Federal Hill and we couldn’t have dreamed a better view of Baltimore.

We happened to see from the top of Federal Hill a carousel below. The ticket taker was very cool and let us jump on board for a spin. Ryan jumped on with them and I stood on the outside so we could grab both perspectives. This is much harder than I thought getting the timing on everything correctly. We ended up getting some winners in the bunch.

Getting a little feisty together.

We all headed to the first reception site at Cinghale Restaurant on the harbor. OH. MY. WORD. FABULOUS. FOOD. This is where Heather and Tim got it right.

They served a three hour sit down dinner with 6-8 courses and copious amounts of wine and spirits. Their reception was so intimate. Savoring their family and friends for hours over an amazing meal peppered with great toasts. Ryan and I feasted on some of the best tortellini ever. Prosciutto stuffed tortellini to be exact. Salty wonderful meat packed into hand-made pasta…yes please! It was such a chill reception.

We noticed Tim’s drink of choice was a gin and tonic so I asked the bartender for a bottle of gin and Ryan executed a sweet ring shot.

Next up, reception #2. We headed over to the 8 X 10 Club to listen to some wicked fun tunes courtesy of Tim and Heather’s friends The Bridge.

Heather had a change of footwear so she could shake her tail feather.

Tim and Heather, awesome, awesome celebration. We loved spending the day with you two. It was so relaxed, beautiful, and a privilege to capture. You guys are terrific together and are obviously surrounded by wonderful, loving family and friends. Thanks for a memorable October wedding!

Perfection as usual!

What great locations they chose!

We too found that out about the “trickiness” of carousels for my sister’s e-session.

LOVE October weddings! I still tell Seth how I wanted an October wedding, but he was so ready he couldn’t wait that long. :)

I’m checking out the pictures with my 2 year old Tyler and he keeps wanting to kiss me like he sees in the pictures. He says, “what’s dat?” He sure is persistent. Beautiful pictures Kelly and Ryan.

Oh, my goodness! I was in awe of the beauty of this while I was there and was quite choked up, but this is absolutely phenominal! I do plan to contact the two of you to do my wedding - in the near future!
