Gen & Isaac’s wedding
I can’t stress enough how much I LOVE photographing outdoor weddings! Churches are beautiful and ornate and sacred but they are also usually full of dark woods and stone, poorly lit, and hard to photograph in. Nature is where it’s at for us wedding photographers! Gen and Isaac were married Aug 20th 2011 in Swallow Falls State Park in Maryland. This is in the Deep Creek area of Western MD a stones throw from the West Virginia line and the area is amazingly gorgeous!
Gen was raise in the Baha’i faith and so their marriage was a mix of both secular traditions and Baha’i traditions as well as featuring a private vow exchange at the edge of a 50 foot waterfall. The setting was magical, the couple looked beautiful, and their love was shared by all the guests in attendance as well as folks who just happened to be at the park that day and were treated to the unexpected – a couple saying their vows at the edge of the falls.
Gen and Isaac have been together for a long time and while others may have tried to rush them into marriage years ago what we were witnesses to on that sunny day on the edge of a waterfall in Western Maryland was the binding together of two hearts that have experienced this world together, walking the same path for some time, now declaring in front of friends and family that they are finally willing to share with the rest of us their loving commitment to each other so that we can support them in their love and can look to them to support us as friends of not just two people but of one loving couple.
Enough of my musing – on to the photos!
Congratulations Gen and Isaac!
