Nicholas & Stephanie | August 31st, 2019
American Visionary Art Museum | Baltimore, MD
A marriage is a sacred bond. But, a wedding is a chance to share your personal style. Have it wherever and however you like and wear whatever you damn well want to. Be you! Your guests will gladly embrace the authenticity of your event.
Nicholas and Stephanie are artists, arts advocates, and valued community members in Baltimore City. They are both musicians, among other things, and have incredibly good taste. Their choice to get married at the American Visionary Art Museum personifies both their love of the eccentric, and inclusive nature.
I knew this wedding was gonna be a good one when Steph walked up to hug me wearing a white jumpsuit and leather belt. Yes! We made a quick stop at their alma mater before going to the AVAM. This stairway moment at the Peabody was such an exciting image to capture.
My favorite thing is when a couple will do the robot with us, give us FACE while posing with Divine, and laugh through most of their portraits, but then, blow us away at the ceremony. Nicholas and Stephanie share a true love for one another, and while they like to joke around, their wedding ceremony was heartfelt and deeply meaningful.
Each aspect of the day was bolstered by the creative efforts of the bride and groom's lovely friends. Hand painted signs displayed the names of musicians, potters, and bakers ...all collaborating to make this magical event shine. This duo is loved by many, so the evening included several speeches, but left room for some kick-ass dancing. I feel like this was one of the more diverse weddings we shot in 2019, and I felt so at home with this fabulous group.
Truly, a reflection of the good people that Steph and Nicholas are. #winning
Congratulations you two!!!
