RYAN & ASHLEY: MODERN BAYSIDE WEDDING IN PASADENA, MD // MARYLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Ryan and Ashley held their beautiful wedding at Celebrations at the Bay in Pasadena, MD at the end of May! We are so excited to share some images from their wedding day -- it has a few of our favorite things (water, eucalyptus, navy, and light pink!). The weather on their special day was absolutely gorgeous which is a super rare occurrence here lately on the east cost with all these rainy days! Not only did we get fantastic weather during the day, we also got an amazing and vibrant sunset on the water in the evening at golden hour!
Their wedding day was extra special because it was the day they were also celebrating 10 years together as they are high school sweethearts! I have known Ashley since we were 9 years old, so it was super sweet to see her say "I do" to the love of her life! Ryan and Ashley are absolutely so sweet together and match each other perfectly.
One of our favorite moments on their wedding day was getting to do a first look of Ashley with her grandparents. Just the night before, Ashley was at the hospital until very late with her Gram, and they weren't sure if she would be able to attend the wedding the next day. It was truly bittersweet to see the emotions of them seeing each other for the first time with Ashley in her wedding gown. With tears welling up in my eyes as we shot these moments of Ashley, Gram, and Poppy, we knew that soon these memories would be invaluable and that is something we never take lightly.
Ryan and Ashley's wedding ceremony was so sweet! They hugged each other in the most loving way after their first kiss as Mr. and Mrs.! After some family photos, and lots of bride and groom portraits, we danced the night away and finished with our first ever night bubble exit which did not disappoint! Ryan and Ashley are both RN's and they decided to donate their wedding flowers to a local hospital and delivered them to patients themselves the day after their wedding! It is couple's like them that remind us how much we love what we do and how important it is to be a servant! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Hood, we know you both have an amazing and bright future ahead of you!
