There’s something to be said about a couple who is surrounded by people who openly gush about the strength of their faith and the way that each of them has touched their lives. At Rebecca and Mladen’s perfect Bretton Woods Maryland wedding, this was absolutely the case. The number of faces that lit up when each of them was around left me truly grateful to witness such joy and connection. And there are times in my life when I meet two people for the first time and they become people I wish could be in my life, in person, on a daily basis. From Rebecca’s soft-spoken, classy nature to Mladen’s crazy sense of humor and their gorgeous chemistry (no, seriously, check out their engagement session), I wish these two lived closer to me. But, hey, the cool thing is I’m the lady with the camera, and I can just shoot a quick message to tell them to meet me in the mountains, right?
Saturday was a dream, you guys. The weather was absolutely perfect for a Maryland wedding – the sun was shining and kept us warm when we took a step out of the shade, the breeze was chilly but gave us the perfect element of movement, and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky after a winter of cold, rainy days and early spring snowstorms. There were nods to Mladen’s Serbian heritage, gorgeous fragrant greenery, candlelight, and whimsical gold accents. (And tiramisu. That I regret never getting a bite of.)
But, selfishly, my favorite parts of the day were the moments that I was able to get the two of them alone. Because, well, you’ll see.
Congratulations, you two! I hope you’re having a blast in St. Lucia, and cheers to many many MANY years of blessings and love! Thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your memories.
