Baltimore Yacht Club Wedding | Tracy & Ryne

Posted on Oct 1, 2014 in Weddings | 9 Comments

You might remember Tracy and Ryne from their engagement session this past spring, but I remember Tracy from going to high school with my little sister. So, naturally, I was THRILLED when Tracy and Ryne asked me to photograph their wedding, at the Baltimore Yacht Club, this fall. Tracy has an infectious smile and a super-sweet disposition and Ryne is about as welcoming and warm as they come. These two are truly a match made in heaven and it was such an honor to photograph their big day!

Laura and I started off at Tracy and Ryne’s home, where Tracy got ready with her girls, upstairs, and Ryne and his guys got all extra handsome, downstairs.

Once everyone was ready, we headed over to the Baltimore Yacht Club for a very sweet first look. These are always some of my favorite images

Tracy and her girls finally had a moment all together! Ryne and his groomsmen were able to spend a little more time together before-hand, with Laura.

And then, it was time to get married!! The Baltimore Yacht Club has the perfect backdrop for a wedding.

As it turns out, Ryne and Tracy own a boat! I was so excited when Tracy told me that they wanted some pictures on the boat… the light was perfect and these two are just too sweet!

Then, we headed down the pier for a few sweet photos of the newly-weds

The sun was getting pretty low, but we had just enough time for one more set up at the ceremony site before introductions. I’m so glad we were able to get these in!

Once inside, I was excited to see that Tracy and Ryne decided to have a “message in a bottle” where guests were able to leave little notes to the bride and groom to open on their anniversaries. Such a sweet idea!

The room was absolutely beautiful and all of Tracy and Ryne’s details came together perfectly.
