Creating a modern event and using quality local vendors in Baltimore were top priorities for this bride and groom. Whitney and Matthew's wedding was so much fun, mostly due to the cool attitudes of the bride, groom, and their wedding party (they didn't even flinch when their Uber showed up and it was too small for their group). With beautiful weather on their side, the couple made sure to take lots of pre-wedding portraits. Whitney shared this helpful piece of advice for those in the early stages of wedding planning: "Really think about the type of event you want to have, not the type of event you think you should have."

Thank you to Robin Shotola for sharing this lovely Baltimore day with us!
