western maryland photographer | a westminster wedding | anna + freddie
Anna and Freddie...seriously the most laid back couple I have ever worked with and beyond the sweetest people ever. Anna's family is from the Ukraine and Freddie's family is from Brazil, so you can just imagine how fun their wedding was. It was all about family. This was my first Russian wedding and while the ceremony was in English, the a lot of the reception was in Russian. So many traditions. There was not only an American meal prepared, but also Russian and Brazilian foods too. Soo yummy. This was also the first time I had ever seen both sets of parents speak at a wedding, and grandparents. So many words of love and support. Anna's dad had to be the happiest father of the bride I have ever met. He cried happy tears numerous times. He is beyond proud of his daughter. It showed every moment. I felt so welcome as their photographer. Their family checked in on me numerous times, made sure I ate, had whatever I needed. I mean this was their day, but they also made sure their vendors were made to feel like family too. I honestly felt like I had known everyone for many years. I even got dance a little. Thank you Anna and Freddie for welcoming me into this special time and making me feel like family. It was an honor!!
