Stress-free Maryland wedding

One sentence sum-up of wedding vibe: Our wedding day was a wonderful, fun, and stress-free day filled with the support and love of our family and friends.

Other cool stuff we should know about: Our families come from vastly different places: Mark’s from Southeastern Ohio farm country, and Emma’s from the metropolitan areas of Long Island, NY and London, England. Despite the different cultures and backgrounds, everyone got along wonderfully and made cross-family friendships very quickly. Emma’s English family toast celebrating Mark’s father’s homemade fruit wine symbolizes the perfect blend of our families.

Favorite thing about the wedding: The amount of fun had by everyone!

    Yay, Maryland!

    You had the exact same venue as me for the reception and it’s so neat to see it used in a different way! :)
