On a brisk and beautiful day in February, Cortney and Dave tied the knot at the Liriodendron Mansion, a historic property nestled in the small town of Bel Air, Maryland. I love shooting weddings at this venue, mostly because of the romantic patio area with beautiful arches! Cortney and Dave’s wedding was one of my first of the 2019 wedding season, and it was a great way to start the year!
These two lovebirds met at the wedding of their friends, Casey and Nate, who might sound familiar from that time that I shot their gorgeous wedding at the Cork Factory Hotel in Lancaster two years ago!! This is the best kind of coincidence. I am so happy that it’s such a small world that I’m able to work with both of these couples whom I absolutely adore! Flash forward to 2019, and Cortney and Dave share two children, Skyli and a baby on the way, plus a fur baby Goldendoodle named Louie.
On a Sunday night, you’ll find these two glued to their TV watching the final season of Game of Thrones and, on the off-season, hosting board game nights with friends. We definitely bonded over our mutual “foodie”-status and our love for travel! They also love visiting breweries and wineries on spontaneous trips with each other (so romantic, right?).
Dave proposed in Havre de Grace while he, Cortney and Skyli were visiting the Concord Point Lighthouse. If you haven’t visited this historic landmark, it’s a perfect family-friendly activity for a summer afternoon! Cortney was caught off-guard when she saw the ring, which Skyli gave to her. What a great family outing!
One of my favorite details from their wedding is the color scheme – blush is such a soft color for a winter wedding and I think it made everything feel fresh and cheerful. Cortney’s Mother, Denise, did a beautiful job incorporating the colors into the bride’s flowers!
