How You Met We first met in an 8th grade youth group, then became reacquainted midway through college after years apart.

The Engagement Parker proposed by surprise in December of 2021 after a day of visiting museums in DC. All of our friends were in on it and were waiting at a nearby AirBnB so we could all hit the town and celebrate.  

Wedding Design Inspiration Vintage European stylings combined with the marble and wrought iron of the Peabody Library.

What Was Unique and Special About Your Wedding Day Smoke from Canadian wildfires had Baltimore under numerous air pollution warnings in the weeks leading up to the wedding, but when the day came, the weather was perfect and the air quality had improved drastically. Everything that followed seemed to unfold flawlessly.

Favorite Details Dinner menus styled as a book index; signature drinks dedicated to family members who have passed.

Most Unexpected Event On Your Wedding Day Parker’s prized guitar was left on the sidewalk in Baltimore for roughly a half an hour due to a miscommunication between groomsmen, and it was still there untouched when they returned to look for it.

Piece of Advice Focus on celebrating the one you just married!
