Frederick Maryland Wedding Photographer – Danni & Paul

June 21, 2017

Danni and Paul are married! Their wedding last Friday at Walker’s Overlook in Frederick Maryland was breathtaking!  I was not only the photographer for their special day but I was also a bridesmaid!  I definitely couldn’t have done it without the help of my friends and amazing photographer Carrie Wren Photography.  Carrie wasn’t the only one that made the day such a success.  The other vendors were also all amazing! It was definitely a dream team and all of whom I would love to work with for my own wedding (if I wasn’t already married hahaha!).  A list of all vendors are included below.
I will be doing a blog post in the near future about how I made it work as a photographer and bridesmaid!  Every part of Danni and Paul’s wedding day was a dream.  The property at Walker’s Overlook was just gorgeous! We did a first look on the front porch and it couldn’t have been more beautiful!  The look on Paul’s face when he saw Danni in her wedding dress for the first time was priceless!  Danni’s gorgeous wild flower bouquet was absolutely stunning.  Jeni really outdid herself and brought Danni’s bouquet vision to life.  Jeni also provided my twins (flower girls) flower crowns, the boutonnieres and Danni’s headpiece for the ceremony.
Danni and Paul said “I Do” in the church where her parents and her Mom’s brother and sisters also got married!  Zion Lutheran Church in Middletown, MD was the perfect location.  The garden outside the church was also perfect for some pre ceremony pictures.  Danni and Paul’s wedding reception had so many amazing details that told their complete love story. Their wedding was in Maryland where Danni is from but they met in College in Pennsylvania, where Paul is from,and they now live in Colorado!  Danni and Paul made sure to include all parts of their life in their reception.  Colorado was represented with beautiful stones at each guest’s table,Colorado Blue Spruce trees for guests to take home and plant, and a trail mix bar. Pennsylvania was represented with the traditional cookie table as well as a coffee bar to signify their many coffee dates while in college.
We danced all through the night to some amazing songs provided by their DJ Greg and ended the night with a glow stick send off!  Even though I was exhausted after, I had the best time at Danni and Paul’s wedding.  It was truly an amazing day that I will remember forever as will all the guests that attended.  Danni and Paul here are a few of my favorite pictures from your wedding day.  In a few weeks you will receive your full gallery with these photos and many more in both color and b&w. Enjoy!
