Tim and Mary Ellen tied the knot last weekend at the beautiful Grey Rock Mansion in Pikesville, MD. Their wedding was a celebration full of joy and love. Mary Ellen was the ultimate DIY bride and handmade all of the decor! She even made the bridesmaids bouquet and her bouquet. Amazing! Their initials spell out TiME (Tim & Mary Ellen) so the theme was clocks and time. So creative!
The flower girl and ring bearers were also adorable. The family had the great idea of putting a toy on each kids chair so they had something fun at the end of the aisle. So cute!
Here is their love story from Mary Ellen's perspective!
We actually met online through OKcupid! Although the technology helped us find each other, we built our strong connection on the fact that Tim is a former Marine and the weekend we were supposed to have our very first date was the weekend I was running the Army Ten Miler race in memory of my good friend who had recently passed away. I was such an unexpected emotional mess that I needed to cancel our first date! But in explaining why Tim was so understanding and incredibly supportive (more so than you would expect any stranger you just met online to be!) We ended up meeting for the first time that following weekend and it has been simply amazing ever since. I truly think that my buddy was looking out for me from heaven helping me find my one and only.
And the proposal!
Tim was super stealthy in his engagement plans! He was in cahoots with my older sister in NY who stole me away to get a pedi when we were visiting my family for my niece's birthday in January. While I was busy getting my toes done, Tim went to my parents' house and asked for my dad's blessing. Of course they said yes! Over the next couple months, Tim planned a long weekend in Maine over Memorial Day weekend. During our first full day in Maine, we visited the Maine Coastal Botanical Gardens. After finding a beautiful and secluded spot, Tim dropped to one knee and asked to spend the rest of his life with me. I instantly started crying the happiest tears of my life!
It was a joy to capture your big day. Enjoy the images from Tim & Mary Ellen's wedding!
