Oh my goodness, what a beautiful, totally-in-love couple. Sara and Derrick were married last week and it was truly a joyous occasion.

Robin and Tracy photographed their ceremony and I caught up with the happy couple at their reception. Their families, friends and congregation from their church were all amazingly loving people.

Sara and Derrick were married in the West Chapel at the University of Maryland by Pastor Gaskins. The fall colors were gorgeous on the campus as well as in the chapel…

I just love this picture of Amy hugging her mom while holding her dad’s hand. The emotion on Barbara’s face was shared by everyone there!

After making her way through the room collecting hugs and kisses, everyone sat down for a wonderful meal. Amy and Jen did a great job sharing their thoughts about their mom and dad…

There were so many nice people to help celebrate another year for this couple, it was really fun to meet everyone.  Dave and Barbara are fortunate to have a great group of friends and family to surround them.

Special kudos for Jenaire, the manager at Baldwin’s and her team that served everybody. Thanks to Kira, Chris, Joy, Casey and Nicholas; you handled yourselves as true professionals.

Amy, thank you for hiring me to document part of this special day. You and Jen really did a great job executing this celebration. I had a great time with you all.

Thanks also to Joan and Heather for referring me.
