Nothing speaks to me quite like a punch of color, and today’s wedding in Maryland is the perfect example! Mariela and Brian’s traditional wedding is filled to the brim with a summery pop of teal, from the bridesmaids to the groomsmen, a day beautifully captured by Elizabeth Fogarty Photography. See even more of their summer wedding reception later this morning where their lovebird-inspired décor brings about birdcages and baby’s breath! It’s too much pretty to handle this early in the morning!
From Mariela: I had somewhat of a vision in my mind. I wanted it to be classy with a touch of a lovebird theme.
During our ceremony we had a coin ceremony which is where you collect 13 coins together before the ceremony and during the ceremony both groom and bride drop the coins into each others hands. This represents prosperity and good stewardship; that we will mutually support each other and our family.
