West River Center Wedding | Luke and Laura

L&L301Luke and Laura’s June wedding was just wonderful at West River Center. Luke and Laura were just beaming with excitement and love for each other. They went from meeting on E-Harmony, to dinner at Strapazzas for their first date to a scavenger hunt around Towson when they got engaged. I have just loved the time that I have spent with them because they are so smitten with each other and clearly head over heels. Not only that, they love each other’s passion for Jesus which is clearly the most important thing in their marriage.

So the week before the wedding, we were all stalking the weather and the forecast was rain…rain all day long. I collected my umbrellas and was ready for the monsoon, but surprisingly there was only a mist for the majority of the pictures. We lucked  on that, but didn’t luck out electricity in Laura’s parents’ house!  When I arrived, there was half of the house with no electricity and the other half of the house was running on a generator!  It was crazy, but the girls were total rock stars and Laura was so calm…just ready to get married!
