Rhiannon & David | September 20th, 2019
The Maryland Zoo | Baltimore, MD
I've been heavy on praise for the "people of the north" lately, which is all well and good, but, let me say a thing or two about Baltimoreans. I love this city. It gets a really bad reputation, and I think anyone talking smack about B'more simply hasn't spent quality time here. Charm City has so much to offer, and constantly surprises me.
But the best thing about Baltimore, is the people. The individuals who make Baltimore their home are some of the more interesting and charming folks you will meet. They are gritty and have great style. They like to have a good time. People here are authentic.
When Rhi and Dave asked us to document their wedding at The Maryland Zoo, I was super excited. The wedding venue at the Baltimore zoo is stunningly gorgeous, and, I'd heard rumor about penguins joining cocktail hour ...?! How cool to get to be behind the scenes with the animals! Being a photographer has perks that really speak to my inner child.
This couple is so lovely to be with. We felt as if we'd known them for a long while, despite not meeting until the big day. Rhiannon and Dave are warm and playful, and their laid-back nature is delightful. They wanted to have the most fun day ever, and I dare say that they did.
This ceremony had everyone tearing up. Laughter and tears are very close to each other in the human heart, you know.
As I always say, the couple that plays together, stays together. I see great things for this duo and their wild love!
Congratulations to the Newlyweds!!!
P.S. One of the penguins at the wedding was named Olive!!!
