Valerie and Jesse’s Liriodendron wedding day started EARLY at really cute old house in historic Havre de Grace, MD where Valerie and her bridesmaids got ready.  Meanwhile, Jesse and the groomsmen met at the beautiful St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church in Pylesville, MD.  Before I say any more, lets get to the photos!

Liriodendron Wedding

You may have noticed the dove release after the ceremony.  That was a first for me and a lot of fun to photograph!  After the ceremony the guests moved about 20 miles down the road to the beautiful Liriodendron Mansion in Bel Air.  The grounds of Liriodendron are really beautiful and you are always guranteed to get some great light outside on the veranda.  Such a great place to shoot.

After their introduction Valerie and Jesse got the party started with an awesome choreographed first dance.  Couples take note. This is how you dip your bride!  Jesse had it down pat. Next they played a few fun games, followed by two of the best and most emtional toasts I have witnessed.  There were very few dry eyes in the room.  All in all it was just a wonderful day.  Valerie and Jesse were a great couple and absolutely fantastic to work with.
