We had been looking forward to this wedding since spending the morning with Alexandra and Chris for their engagement session in the spring. They are both so kind, so genuine, and so perfect for each other. And their families have the same warmth. By the end of the wedding we felt like we had made a lot of new friends. The day started at St. Andrew the Apostle Church in Silver Spring for the ceremony. We had the pleasure of photographing in the tree-lined church grounds, where the leaves had all changed to red and gold. After the ceremony, we walked the University of Maryland campus to some of the significant spots for Chris and Alexandra during their dating relationship for more photos with their bridal party. It also happened to be homecoming weekend, and the sights and sounds of school spirit added to the fun. After that, the party really got going at the Marriott right near campus, with dinner and dancing and some of the best desserts we’ve ever eaten. Alexandra and Chris went out of their way to make every one of their guests feel welcomed–us included!
