Lacey + John : Grey Rock Mansion Wedding

Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-101Two weekends ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Lacey and John’s beautiful wedding at Grey Rock Mansion.  I can’t believe it had been almost a year since I photographed their Cylburn Arboretum / Camden Yards engagement session where I had an absolute blast watching the two of them try to concurrently blow bubbles with Bubble Yum after learning that John had NEVER learned how to blow bubbles.  While there was no Bubble Yum to be found at their wedding (I’m still kind of sad about that, guys), there was perhaps my most favorite first look yet.  When John turned around and saw Lacey, his bride, for the first time, he brought his hands to his face with a flood of emotion.  A more genuine smile doesn’t exist.  Moments like that are pure perfection and are what remind me of how lucky I am.  Moments like that are shared between only a bride and groom and one other person, and that lucky person is me (ok….so that particular first look there was also my second shooter and two videographers, but you know what I mean 😉  ).  Or when I got to be there to photograph Lacey as she read her note from John before going out to see him.  It brought her to tears and I legit was the only other person in there to experience that…….and I might have been hiding my tears behind the camera.  Their wedding was so full of emotion and other amazing moments like the two I already mentioned.
Not only were their beautiful moments, but the wedding day itself was planned with attention to detail that everything else about it was beautiful, too.  The florals were to die for, the cake was gorgeous, the color palette was perfection, and I was obsessed over the place card holders (you’ll see those in a bit).  It was just one of those weddings that was great from the moment I walked in to the hotel room, to the moment I walked out of Grey Rock Mansion.  And I know that it is all because Lacey and John are an incredible couple that I will for sure miss getting to be around.  I have to admit that I’m kind of sad it’s over because I really was looking forward to their wedding just so I could see them again!  Congratulations Lacey and John….you deserve all the happiness in the world!Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-2Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-3Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-6Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-8Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-11Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-14Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-16Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-19Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-23Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-25Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-27Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-4Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-5Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-12Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-18Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-20Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-22Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-24Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-30Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-42Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-43Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-44Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-46Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-47Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-48Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-50Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-51Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-52Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-54Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-55Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-56Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-57Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-45Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-59The moment I asked Anna, my second, to go do a veil drop and the wind decided it would just do it on it’s own.  Hence why John was not ready at all   🙂Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-60Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-62Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-64Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-65Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-77Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-79Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-80Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-82Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-83Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-84Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-85Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-86Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-88Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-92Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-93Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-95Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-96Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-97Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-102Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-103Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-104Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-105Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-106Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-108Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-112Lift failGrey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-113Success!!Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-115Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-118Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-68Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-69Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-71Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-73Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-74Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-75Ummm….probably my favorite ring shot of all time.  Yep.  I think so.  Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-122Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-123Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-120Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-124Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-127Grey Rock Mansion Lacey John Wedding-131The incredible professionals that made this day possible:
