Swan Harbor Farm Wedding | Lauren & Greg

Posted on Jul 18, 2014 in Weddings | 3 Comments

Once again, I had the pleasure of shooting along side Brea, of Photography by Brea, at Swan Harbor Farm in Havre de Grace, MD. Brea always seems to book the most fantastic couples and she warned me ahead of time that Lauren and Greg were going to be a lot of fun. Once again, she did not disappoint! Lauren and Greg were all smiles and fun the whole day and I simply could not take a bad photo of them; they are just too sweet together!

When we first arrived, Brea had me help her with some detail shots before heading upstairs to see Lauren’s girls help her get dressed.

Once Greg and Lauren were ready, we set them for their first look. I love it when couples decided to have a first look, before the ceremony, as I really think it gives them time to really take in the moment, without having to move straight into the ceremony. To me, these are always the sweetest images of the day.

While Brea was photographing the girls, I was with Greg and his guys.

After we rocked out some family photos, it was off to The Church of St. Patrick’s in Havre de Grace. This church was, well, STUNNING. I loved everything about it… from the beautiful stone architecture and lush grounds to the warmth and serene beauty on the inside.

Even with their sweet first look a while earlier, Greg looks as taken back as if he is seeing Lauren for the first time.

While Brea was photographing Lauren & Greg up at the gazebo, I snuck down the walkway to grab this silhouette.

Then, we headed over to the barn… one of my favorite spots at Swan Harbor!

While Brea was finishing up some family photos, I headed over to the reception tent to grab some detail shots.

I honestly don’t think I’ve ever teared up during a best man speech before, but I sure did this day! Greg’s brother gave the sweetest speech!

Lauren’s friends had a surprise choreographed dance to perform for the newly-weds
