Spring Accelerator Space Baltimore Wedding
Vanessa + Anthony Wedding Story
Vanessa & Anthony are as kind as they are cool. They have style and class and are just so much fun, and their wedding day reflected all those things rolled into one sweet celebration.
After meeting in theatre at Towson University, they spent most of their dating life split between Baltimore and DC before they moved to Chicago for the next chapter in their lives. Because Baltimore represented their “beginnings” I loved being able to capture some good ol’ Baltimore charm in their portraits. After starting the day in Fells Point at the Pendry and by the pier, we trekked up to Clipper Mill for their first look and wedding party portraits and then back over to Accelerator Space for the ceremony & reception.
They had so many meaningful elements weaved into the day in such subtle and classy ways. As an ode to their theater days, their ceremony programs were made to look like playbills which was so fun. After they were pronounced husband and wife they also chose to honor the African American tradition of jumping the broom. And maybe my favorite was Vanessa’s mom’s crab dip recipe that was served at the cocktail hour- and so delicious. Also note the french fry bar, Vanessa’s killer denim jacket, and the stunning greenery wall at Accelerator. It all came together in the perfect mix of urban, romantic, chic, and fun.
More than anything, they loved having all the people they love in one place, being able to party and celebrate their love together. V said that “living out of state means not seeing our family often, especially not all together. We can’t wait to spend a full day with all of our favorite people, and each other.” <3
