A Formal Affair

IMG_0691_Layers_v1

The Notes clan took our first family trip down to Maryland two weekends ago to celebrate the nuptials of our dear friends, Teri and Charlie.  It was a beautiful weekend to celebrate a beautiful couple.  The bride looked absolutely stunning, and she carried the most unique and amazing bouquet I have ever seen!  Made completely of brooches, many of them were passed down from her family members to add to this masterpiece.  The best part is that she can save this bouquet forever in it’s original form.  I could see it making a beautiful decorative piece for their future dining or living room.  Her lace dress was exquisite, and her cathedral veil was perfect considering their wedding was held at the Baltimore Cathedral.  Teri and I have been friends since high school, and I was lucky enough to be chosen as a bridesmaid to stand up with her on her special day.  My only regret with these photos is that I was unable to capture anything from the ceremony, since I was in the wedding.  Typically, if I’m in the bridal party, my husband will play second shooter to capture photos of the ceremony, but he was on baby duty and was unable to play photographer.  I am looking forward to seeing their professional photos, because that cathedral was just phenomenal.  During the reception, our little one stayed with my mother-in-law at the hotel, and we are very thankful to have had our first adult night out since having a baby.  It was also great to catch up with so many of my best friends all at once.  Congrats to Teri and Charlie!  Wishing you both lots of love and happiness for many many years to come.
