Sarah & Edgar's DIY Backyard Lakefront Wedding

Sarah and Edgar held their beautiful backyard wedding celebration along the shore of Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. Sarah graduated with me in the photography department from Tyler School of Art and I have to say- she is such a talented artist! So it wasn't a surprise that she handcrafted and curated most elements of her wedding. Her close friend (AND BRIDESMAID!), Brielle, cooked the food for the day, friends and family set up tents, a close friend officiated, another played guitar and DJ'd- so much love was woven into the day! The day was filled with scattered showers but the rain always seems to let up and let the sun shine just when we needed it to. Sarah shared a very beautiful and emotional father daughter dance with not just her dad, but her mom and brother, which brought tears to everyone's eyes. Shooting beside me that day was my amazing associate shooter, Keristin, who also graduated with Sarah and I! It was so wonderful to see so many amazing friends to celebrate the love between Sarah and Edgar!
