Blush Floral Inspired Wedding at Antrim 1844 Tess + Tyler | Tanneytown, Maryland


Ya’ll…my first wedding blog post in 9 MONTHS!!! AH! I have not had a wedding since last October thanks to our pal COVID-19. Tess and Tyler’s wedding was actually supposed to be back in mid-May…but it got pushed back because of the virus. These two were such troopers about the entire thing, and they were still able to have the wedding day of their DREAMS! The last time I saw them was at their engagement session last year (which was an absolute DREAM!) and, after spending just an hour with them both, I couldn’t WAIT to see them again! They are just so much FUN together and so, so full of joy. I knew their wedding day would be nothing short of an incredible time.

We arrived at Antrim 1844 on one of the HOTTEST days so far this summer. Their were heat advisories and the temps were well above 105. It was craziness! But, that didn’t stop a single person there from having an AMAZING time celebrating Tess and Tyler. Their close friends and family joined them to have a gorgeous wedding day, despite everything stacked against them during this crazy season. From the beautiful bridal suite, sweet bridesmaids, sentimental details and awesome getaway car…this day could not have been any better!

Tess and Tyler: Thank you both so, so much for trusting me with capturing your wedding day! It was SUCH an honor to be a part of your day and I hope you love these favorites as much as I do! I can’t WAIT for you to see your full gallery!

Let’s just talk about this ROOM!!! An HTP dream!!!

Tess did her OWN MAKEUP and looked PHENOMENAL!

Love this one!

So sweet!!!

The sweetest daddy-daughter first look!

Like…what!? These girls are so gorgeous!!!

Another fave!


Tess’s brother was the wedding officiant, so he kept an ICE in his back pocket and initiated Tyler into the family by making him drink it at the end of the ceremony HAHA!!! I loved it!

This LIGHT!!! These two are so gorgeous!

I LOVE when my couples build in time for sunset portraits!! And, when there’s a floral-covered getaway car involved!? A DREAM.

I have so many favorites!! Here’s another!

And another!
