November 5, 2014 Alexis + Brian | Pier 5 Baltimore Wedding
Alexis and Brian are such an awesome couple and I’ve been greatly looking forward to their wedding since we first met! From the first meeting they were both so fun and so enthusiastic and I knew we would have a blast working together. Their engagement session is still one of my favorites from this Spring, and their wedding is a new favorite as well. Alexis and Brian have an awesome kind of love. The kind that you can see from a mile away. Not because of anything in particular that they do or say, but because of the unspoken moments… the stolen glances. The love. Their wedding day was no exception. Seeing the joy on both of their faces to be committing forever to the love of their life, it’s impossible to watch without a smile on your face as well. Congratulations Alexis and Brian! You guys are amazing and I’m so happy I was able to be a part of your day!
I just love the Pier 5 hotel, it’s such a great place for photos inside and out!
It’s like Where’s Waldo? but instead Where’s Alexis’ dress?
I just love Alexis and Brian’s invitation suite by Sameeha from The Inked Leaf! The colors couldn’t have been more perfect with their theme!
If you can’t tell, I was in detail heaven.
Such a gorgeous bride!
Dad agrees! I just love her dad, he was so cute all day.
Such a pretty room! I love that Pier 5 has a beautiful indoor option for wedding ceremonies!
Alexis and Brian chose to keep their wedding party to a single Maid of Honor and Best Man, Alexis’ sister, and Brian’s brother, respectively.
The happy couple! So gorgeous!
The colors in these make me so happy! The fall leaves with Alexis’ gorgeous red hair, LOVE!
How amazing is the back of Alexis’ dress? LOVE it. And this portrait on the right? Stop it, girl! Too good!
The reception was absolutely PERFECT. So beautiful. The purple and gold accented the colors already present in the space perfectly.
And once the sun went down, the city view made this space even more magical.
I just adore these two: love, laughter, happy tears.
Alexis’ dad’s speech was so sweet. Such a proud papa.
We learned that Brian is an awesome hugger.
And that you can apparently make very specific demands for a sibling, Lindsey wished for a “baby sister with red hair just like me.” Such an awesome speech about “her baby”.
Both parent dances were so sweet! I had a huge smile on my face watching both.
And the party? Well it was a BLAST!
Before the end of the night we were able to sneak out for a few minutes to get a few night shots – some of my absolute favorites of the night!
Alexis and Brian, I hope you guys are having an absolute blast in Mexico on your honeymoon and enjoying your first week as newlyweds! I loved being a part of your day and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes you! Congratulations! xoxo, Brea
