Eagle's Nest Country Club Wedding

The Wedding

This Eagle’s Nest Country Club wedding could not have been more perfect, from beginning to end. The weather was perfect…it was the only somewhat cool day that we’ve had all summer. You could feel the energy and happiness surrounding the bride and groom from all their family and friends. Roman and Kelsey were giddy with excitement and obviously know how to celebrate (you will see what I mean when you get to the reception pictures)!

About the couple

Kelsey and Roman met at Wheaton College at the birthday party of one of their friends. Their first date consisted of going to the zoo and afterwards getting donuts at Bb’s Baby Donuts. I obviously need to try these the next time I visit Chicago. These donuts are apparently so good that Roman took Kelsey back there to propose. Kelsey and Roman love to be together whether they are reading, dancing, cooking, exercising or just hanging out with Kelsey’s nephews who also live in Chicago.

Even though I’m sure Chicago is awesome, I’m so glad that they came to Maryland to get married. Fun little fact, Kelsey’s sister also had her getting ready pictures at their parents house and her wedding reception at Eagle’s Nest Country Club. It was such an amazing day and I can’t wait to show you the pictures! I hope you like them and can feel the happiness in photos.

First Glance

I don’t think I’ve ever had another bride and groom who were more excited to see each other.  They were just giddy with emotion…I absolutely loved their first glance!!!

The ceremony

After getting the pictures done at Kelsey’s parents’ house we headed to Central Presbyterian Church for the ceremony.  I love that Roman still got emotional seeing Kelsey walk down he aisle.  Such a special moment!wedding ceremony photography at Central Presbyterian Church in Towsonwedding ceremony photography at Central Presbyterian Church in Towsonwedding ceremony photography at Central Presbyterian Church in Towson

The reception

The reception was held at Eagle’s Nest Country Club in Phoenix, MD.  I love the simplicity of the geometric center pieces and gold accents.  It was so pretty!Eagles Nest Country Club wedding reception, gold geometric terrarium centerpieces, eucalyptus and rose centerpieces Eagles Nest Country Club wedding reception, gold geometric terrarium centerpieces, eucalyptus and rose centerpieces

Extra photos during dinner hour

Luckily during dinner, I was able to grab Kelsey and Roman for a few more portraits.  This is why its always good to trust your photographer!  We had time during cocktail hour but the lighting was pretty harsh.  Taking the photos during dinner allowed us to be able to see the gorgeous views of Eagle’s Nest Country Club.  Eagles Nest Country Club wedding photography, arpasi photography, bride and groom portraitsEagles Nest Country Club wedding photography, arpasi photography, bride and groom portraitsEagles Nest Country Club wedding photography, arpasi photography, bride and groom portraitsEagles Nest Country Club wedding photography, arpasi photography, bride and groom portraits

    Omg, I LOVE her dress and shoes! Genius, girl! This looked like such a fun wedding to photograph!

  2. I seriously love everything about this wedding! And especially the photo of her showing off her pink nikes after the first look! Great moment.

  3. That dress is EVERYTHING. I also love how absolutely beautiful and glamorous she looks, but how she also clearly didn’t sacrifice comfort (yay for nikes and no train!) Best of both worlds!

  4. I don’t know which I love more – that dress, her kicks, the anemones in her bouquet, or the incredible golden light in those Eagles Nest portraits!! But their love outshines it all – beautiful captures!
