ELIZABETH + RYAN | Turf Valley Resort — Maryland Wedding

If you know my work or anything about me, you know that I LIVE for details and portraits. So when Elizabeth and Ryan came to me and told me that they didn't care for either of those and wanted to focus on the party, I have to be honest — every fiber in me wanted to run. Instead, I decided to challenge myself and threw my usual method out the window (although I did convince them to let me take a few portraits before the party began). And I'm so glad I did! 

From start to finish, Elizabeth and Ryan were full of smiles, laughter, and FUN. She played Heads Up while getting ready. He cracked jokes while putting on his tux. The bridal party wore glasses during their portraits. They rode a golf cart to the reception. There were MASSIVE DOG AND CAT HEAD CUTOUTS that were passed around the dance floor. Yeah, you read that right.

Just see for yourself. This wedding was LIT.
