Marty and Brittany’s Swann Farm wedding was every bit of class, elegance and southern charm to make their day absolutely beautiful and a whole lot of fun! On opposite ends of the hotel, the bride and groom got ready at the Holiday Inn in Prince Frederick, sharing in the festivities with some of their favorite people.
Brittany and her dad had their first look in the family’s front yard and although she joked he would cry, she couldn’t help but get emotional too. I love how important it was to walk around to some of her favorites parts of the family property for her photographs. Everything from her gown, makeup and hair and her sweet bridesmaids in their lace dresses was fitting for this Fall wedding.
In true gentleman fashion, Marty patiently awaited his bride sharing some laughs (and drinks) with his best friends and groomsmen and his absolutely gorgeous family. Be still my heart. The ceremony was decorated in fall colors with mums lining the aisle and the bride and groom exchanged vows under the same tree that the bride’s parent’s were married at! I couldn’t make this romance story up if I tried! Call me old fashion, but I truly think one of the best gifts you can give your friends and family is positive marital influence and that is exactly what their parents have given.
Tucked away down a path that only locals would know about, Marty and Brittany were able to sneak away for a few portraits. How awesome is it that their venue was a family farm with a pier, gorgeous skies, an old cabin, all in one location?
Their reception was nothing shy of the best Southern food, nonstop dancing and good times had by all. I don’t think there was a single person that didn’t get on the dance floor at least once! Everyone that was important to them and all that makes up who these two are as individuals and now as a couple was perfectly included in this wedding. The personal touches made this one of the most romantic, fun, down to earth weddings I have ever photographed!
