Mel + Joe // The Tea Barn at Fair Hill // Elkton, MD

These two crazy, adorable kids are the epitome of fun. I was so honored to take part in their special day. When I say that they know how to have fun, I mean it. Silly string at the engagement shoot? Um, yes please. Circus themed wedding at a barn with a kissing booth, ring toss, super-sized Jenga game, skee-ball and corn hole? Um, dream come true for a photographer. From the games, to the countless details scattered throughout the venue, this wedding was asking to be over-photographed. Which it was. And to make matters worse, these two lovebirds were extremely photogenic. 

The wedding took place on an unusually hot day in late September. The sun was shining brightly over the barn the entire afternoon and until sunset. Mel and Joe carried their big spirits everywhere they went that day, barely letting a moment pass without a big smile or laugh (Mel has a great, big, throw-your-head-back kind of laugh). They danced until the sun went down and left in a colorful shower of silly string. They were surrounded by a lot of amazing people that day, who clearly knew how much these two loved each other. And through it all, one big thing that mattered to them on their wedding day, was that everyone was having as much fun as them, including the vendors. What an extremely big-hearted, cool couple. Thanks for having me Mel & Joe!
