Usually when I show up the morning of the wedding, there is some element of crazy happening. When I showed up to the hotel and walked into Mary’s room it was the complete opposite. She was relaxed and visiting with her mom, excited for what was coming later.
Their ceremony was at the Grotto of the Lourdes at Mount St. Mary’s in Emmitsburg, MD. Mount St. Mary’s Grotto of the Lourdes is located literally on the side of the mountain, so stunning. As Mary and John prepared for their vows throughout the ceremony, the looks they stole to glance at each other were priceless. Their excitement was bubbling up before my eyes at the commitment they were ready to make.
The reception that followed at Hauser Estate Winery was relaxed, complete with yard games and all. The vineyard provided the PERFECT backdrop for pictures, seriously stunning. The night would not have been complete without a bit of dancing and a tipping cupcake tower (I thought it was totally going down!).
