Lloyd and Madeline said, “I do” as the sun was setting at Wye RIver Conference Center in Queenstown, Maryland. Before the ceremony, they shared a beautiful first look and exchanged personal vows with one another. There were happy tears and many laughs! The details were extraordinary with brushed gold flatware, rose wine glasses, and greenery designed by Steelcut Flower Co..
Here is a little bit of their love story!
Lloyd and I met about 10 years ago through a mutual friend. We had been acquaintances for a long time within the same friend group. One day, we realized we had feelings for each other that were stronger than just friends. We quickly began to spend every single day together, realizing how much we had in common and how much fun we had together. Since then, we have fallen in love with each other more every day.
And the proposal!
Lloyd left early on a Saturday morning to go to work. Within an hour of leaving, Lloyd returned home to surprise me that he had taken off work for the day. He walked into my room with a bouquet of roses and champagne. After I said "I do," Lloyd took me to our rooftop deck to drink some champagne before taking me out to eat where we had our first date. We then celebrated with family that night!
Enjoy these images from Lloyd and Madeline’s big day!
So much joy!
Maddy, you are gorgeous!
Loved this sweet time of exchanging vows.
This photo was kind of a joke but it is good to make sure the photographer is done taking the photo before you pull out your cell phone! I can’t tell you how many times I have had people looking off to the side at a phone instead of looking at my camera. I want to make sure I give the best of the best to my couples!
Such a beautiful ceremony!
That gorgeous light!
Maddy, your hair looked amazing all day!
The love birds in the cage are too cute!
Love all of these pretty little details.
The sun coming through the tent was so romantic!
