Meghan and Nick

Lower Notley Hall Farm- A Southern Maryland venue is the ultimate hidden gem when it comes to barn venues with an elegant *twist*. I am in love with this venue! It is tucked back into some good old Southern Maryland farm land, but is only conveniently about 30 minutes South of LaPlata!

The house is an original farm house renovated for an antique and elegant feel with all the best natural light for the best getting ready portraits! I love that you get the “original” feel of the house as you first walk in! The barn is a beautiful wood construction that makes your wedding venue oh-so cozy with beautiful waterfront sunsets! I can not say enough!

Lower Notley Manor Farm was the perfect place for Meghan and Nick’s wedding day! They enjoyed getting ready inside the beautiful farm house before they walked out back to exchange their vows right on the water with all of their closest friends and family!

We took some gorgeous portraits on this long dirt road covered by cedar trees and out in front of the house. It brought back all of the good vibes from their engagement session last year in King George, Virginia!

An Elegant Fall Wedding at Lower Notley Hall Farm

Laura and Kenny

You couldn’t ask for a better September day for a beautiful wedding at Landino Farm. Landino Farm is a beautiful farm tucked off the beaten path in King George County, Virginia. This is any brides barn venue dreams! The tall unfinished ceilings and the chandeliers are definitely some of the first selling points.

Laura and Kenny had the picture perfect wedding day from A to Z! The rain held off until later that evening despite what the weather man was calling for a few days leading up to it making getting portraits easy peasy. They exchanged their vows and said i do in the open field on the property, then moved inside for the reception.

I do have to say, I am a sucker for first dances. Laura and her fathers first dance pulled on the ole heart strings. They shared their first dance to the same song my father and i shared at my wedding. Cue the water works! The father daughter dances get me every time, but that one was special!

That’s not it though! Laura and Kenny’s family and friends know how to party! The night ended in dancing, singing on the dance floor and enjoying some adult beverages in celebration! I had a blast partying with this crowd! This all and all, was an amazing day to remember!

I am looking forward to shooting more weddings at Landino Farm in the future!

A September Wedding at Landino Farm

Carie Ann and Johnny

You couldn’t ask for better weather for a backyard ceremony than the September evenings. Carie Ann and Johnny had to reschedule their big day from May of this year to September but there was no doubt that it was the perfect decision.

Carie Ann and Johnny had their ceremony at their family’s property in Charlotte Hall, Md and a reception under a tent right after. Little did they know that the very same place they had the engagement session is where they would get married! (Check out some of the images of their engagement session HERE on my Instagram.) This private ceremony and reception made all of their wedding dreams come true. They had the pleasure of having their children, their family and friends celebrate all evening with them, dancing, singing, riding four wheelers and dirt bikes.

I am so happy, even with COVID in the mix, that they got to have the wedding of their dreams and be able to celebrate the same year they originally planned. I am so happy i was able to capture their day and was able to document it so beautifully, something they will be able to enjoy for a life time!

A September Backyard Southern Maryland Wedding

Britt and Mo

Hats off to the first wedding of the year with this beautiful, low key, intimate ceremony and backyard reception in Deale! Britt and Mo made a decision (like so many other brides this year) to reschedule their big day and due to the COVID restrictions, they decided to make is a more intimate approach!

They found a secluded park right on the Chesapeake Bay in Deale, Maryland to have their ceremony and took their party bus back to Britt’s childhood home where her parents still live to have their reception. The tables and chairs were graciously dropped off by Barnes Farmhouse Tables, Britt and Mo made their signs in their very own at home woodworking shop (check out their work, its incredible!), and they also made all the bouquets BY HAND out of wood shavings!

Unfortunately, due to COVID, Mo’s family wasn’t able to make it, so they joined in via FaceTime and zoom! It was absolutely heart warming to see them all together, dressed up, watching the ceremony. I know its not ideal, but it is really the next best thing! (thank you technology!)

I dearly enjoyed spending time with Britt, Mo and their whole family. They were all so kind and welcoming, it really made me feel like one of the family! I am so happy I could be there to be a part of your day!
