Grace + Ryan || Kent Island, Maryland

Oh, Grace and Ryan's wedding. I wish I could clone these guys and reshoot this day over and over again. There was so. much. love. the entire day. We started off with one of the most tender first-looks I've ever shot....

....followed by a wedding party + family portrait session that everyone was just so giddy and giggly for...

...a photo op for four generations of wonderful women....

....a sweet ceremony...

...and an even sweeter reception (yay, honey!!) that had people laughing and crying in equal parts.

Oh, and Grace being a total trooper! Any lady that counters the pretty crazy request to *maybe* jump in a soybean field while wearing an elaborate gown for what could be an amazing photo with "Yes, duh! I'm an entomologist!" is fantastic in my book. It was so worth it, by the way...

Congratulations to these sweet souls, I wish you nothing but happiness for all of your days! -xoMEJ
