Elkridge Furnace Inn Wedding | Amy & Rafi
So, I am *finally* starting to catch up on blogging some of the second shooting work I’ve been doing this past year. Brea has had me out with almost all of her weddings with a second shooter this past year and I’ve had so much fun working with her and her clients! It was hard to choose which wedding to blog first, in this round of backblogging, but I couldn’t think of a more fun wedding than Amy & Rafi’s Elkridge Furnace Inn Wedding this past summer. What made this wedding so awesome, you ask? Well, for starters, Amy and Rafi (and all of their family and friends) we so sweet and fun to work with. These two are so in love and it just shows! The added bonus to this wedding was that the *entire* wedding menu was… wait for it… VEGAN!!!!! Hello, awesome! I’ve been vegan for about a decade now and this is only the second all vegan wedding I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. The food was amazing (which is not surprising) and they even had vegan ice cream and cookies. Amy and Rafi were so sweet to insist that we tried all of the treats, and try I did. My waist line may have grown a wee bit this June, but it was SO worth it. So, this wedding had a sweet couple, awesome family and amazing food at a beautiful venue. It was a win all around.
While Brea was with the girls, getting ready, I started with some scenic shots of the Elkridge Furnace Inn and then headed upstairs with Rafi
While Brea was with the girls, I hung with Rafi and his guys
I always love it when couples exchange gifts on their wedding day
Then, it was time for the first look and Amy and Rafi could not have had a sweeter first few moments together
Their ceremony and all of the details were just beautiful.
Rafi and Amy’s friends and family built the huppah with imported wood from their hometown. Read: They flew this wood from the west coast to Baltimore just for Amy & Rafi. How awesome is that?
Ah, I just love these two!!
All of Amy and Rafi’s details were perfect. I love their favors! MMMMM, popcorn.
I’m so glad that Brea asked me to come along for this awesome wedding. Amy and Rafi, I hope you are loving married life!
