DIY Wedding in Western Maryland

It rained and thunderstormed; then the clouds disappeared giving Hannah and Luke a beautiful wedding day.

They were married in the mountains of western Maryland at Country Acres Retreat.  This picturesque location has a rustic cabin, pavillion, and pond.

Hannah decided to create paper bouquets using


she found online.  One of the bride's friends took on this labor of love and created over 200 origami flowers in different styles.   In addition to the regular colored paper, she used pages with Bible verses to incorporate the couples love of God.  The printed pages also helped to break up the color.

The bridal party took photos around the pond with the bridesmaids in mismatched jewel tone dresses.

After a quick dress change for the bride, the couple joined the guests for the reception.

Congrats Hannah and Luke...
