With all of the humidity and hot weather we have had lately, I could never ask for better weather than Brandon and Jessica had on their wedding day at The Anchor Inn in Pasadena, Maryland. It was a little hot in the sun but we had an amazing breeze that came off of the water.
I had a fun, long conversation with Jessica the night before to discuss a few more wedding details. I was asking her about a couple of her vendors and she had mentioned that her bouquet, the bridesmaids bouquets, and the greenery for the arch and head table were all from Sam’s Club! I would have never guessed! Jessica planned for simple yet elegant details for her reception and it worked perfectly!! The minute she stepped into her dress, everyone’s eyes were wide open and teary at how amazing she looked. Her dress was meant for her.She did a first look with her dad and there was not a dry eye anywhere! Although Brandon and Jessica did not do a first look with each other, Brandon did one with his daughter London.
Brandon and Jessica met at a bar a little over 4 years ago when he sat next to her. After he sat down, the conversations began when she stole his beer. They don’t believe that it was love at first sight but she knew that she had to make a move. As time went on, they almost broke up but she wouldn’t allow it! She knew that he was the one and shortly after, he realized that he didn’t want to spend the rest of his without her. Brandon proposed to Jessica on New Year’s Eve in New Orleans when the fireworks were going off. Talk about the perfect time to pop the magical question! Now here they are, 10 months later, married and more in love than ever before! <3
Brandon + Jessica’s love advice: Be patient and enjoy the little moments.
It was such an honor to capture Brandon + Jessica’s wedding day! <3
This beautiful pocket watch has been passed down throughout 4 generations of Jessica’s family. In the first image of Brandon and Jessica’s father, Jim was giving him the pocket watch to continue the tradition of passing on the family heirloom.
