I met Kailea at Mosaic, a church that I had been attending for a year or so. A mutual friend from Mosaic decided to start an “If Table” group. This was a group that happened once a month, involved amazing food, and even more amazing conversation. It was through that group that Kailea and I became true friends. It was an honor when Kailea asked me to be her Maryland wedding photographer!
This girl has a bundle of love inside of her! It has truly been a joy growing in friendship and sharing bits of life with her. Throughout our friendship, I heard about every guy that sparked Kailea’s interest; however, they were not the rare fit for her heart that she deserved.
Then one day our friend Meghan introduced Kailea to Alex at church. They later talked each other’s ears off in Panera for hours, and Kailea knew that she had found a beautiful addition to her life. Alex was someone that she wanted to keep around forever.
Kailea, another friend and I had planned a girls trip to Europe this past March. Right before we left for the trip, Kailea had visited Alex the night before. Afterwards, she came to spend the night on my couch. We had to wake up early to catch our flight, and at 4 am I managed to get myself downstairs (I am not a morning person folks). That morning, Kailea asked me to come closer. However, I was still in my “I’m not ready to talk to people” stage of the morning. Then I saw a little sparkle on her hand. Alex had proposed the night before because he didn’t want to wait any longer! It was the most joy I have ever felt at 4 am.
This intimate wedding day at the historic Waverly Mansion, in Millersville, Maryland, was filled with dahlias, books, Jesus, and explosive joy. Throughout the day, Alex cried, Kailea’s smile took up her whole face, and I tried to keep myself together behind the camera. It was an honor to capture Kailea and Alex’s wedding story. I look forward to seeing their adventure unfold.
Here are a few of my favorite images from their day!
