Julie and John's Elegant Ceresville Mansion Wedding

I was SO excited when I heard I'd be shooting a wedding again with Katherine Elizabeth Photography at Ceresville Mansion in Frederick. As a Gaithersburg wedding photographer, I was thrilled, because there aren't a lot of great wedding venues over in the area near where we live, and it's great to have a little something that's not necessarily caught up in the hustle and bustle of DC and Baltimore. I'd heard of this venue before and had been dying to see it for a while!

Julie and John are Katherine's clients and they are the absolute greatest. I had the incredible honor of meeting John and his Best Man at the hotel getting ready, and quickly learned how wonderful of a person he is. Julie looked just as beautiful in her Maggie Sottero wedding dress and her Matron of Honor alongside her dressed in rich, navy blue. The couple gathered together at Ceresville Mansion in Frederick for their First Look, wedding ceremony, and reception. 

I learned from Katherine that Julie is a nurse and John is a police officer—what an incredible and lifesaving combination. Julie and John both play such a crucial role in our lives—and the world—by putting others before themselves. They now stand together as a new kind of team, husband and wife, and what an honor it was to be a part of their wedding day.
