Adelphi Mill Wedding | Maryland Wedding Photographer | Michael + Sarah

 Blush and Gray Spring Wedding | Maryland Wedding

When two people are already married, you would assume that the magic of the wedding is long gone. Michael and Sarah had a quick ceremony a few months ago because of his upcoming deployment, but still planned a day to gather their friends and family together to celebrate. And oh what a day it was! Despite the fact that they were already husband and wife, Michael had the best reaction I have ever witnessed when he saw his bride walk down the aisle. He cried, he covered his eyes...he couldn't believe she was really his, even if she had been for months.

The whole wedding was a tribute to Michael and Sarah's relationship. They met in the military but bonded over their love of Fall Out 4, a video game Sarah paid homage to with incredibly intricate decorations. Their invitation suite and place settings featured old-school records, the bride's dress was both beautiful and non-traditional, and the whole wedding was so unique to who they are as a couple.

Michael and Sarah are heading off to Japan together in a few short months on a long deployment, but together they could not be more united. They share a beautiful life and a love that was evident in his reaction to his bride, their touching first dance, and the way Sarah cried at being welcomed into his family so warmly. This was truly a wedding I will never forget.
