Kate and Tony reside in Fells Point, Baltimore and knew they wanted to incorporate their new neighborhood into their big day. They live at Union Wharf. These stylish apartments made the perfect scene for getting ready. Kate even organized a communal space on the main floor by the water for pre-wedding primping. The sun was shining and both Tony and Kate were beaming. It was evident the pair could not wait to be together so it was a good thing they opted for a First Look!
The First Look was one of the most endearing and emotional that I have experienced this year. I was overcome with emotion watching both Kate and Tony being overcome with emotion! They shared in a private moment (minus us) together along the harbor, right outside of their apartment building. It brings a whole new meaning to “home sweet home.”
We made our way after the reveal to Henderson’s Wharf. The marina offers a beautiful waterfront backdrop and we used any moments of cloud coverage to capture it! The beauty of doing a First Look is that we got to take all of the formal portraits in one fell swoop, including photos of the group and with their fur baby-Callie!
A limousine arrived to take Kate, Tony, and their wedding squad to Haven Street Ballroom. The ceremony was inside, with an adjoining party at Monument City Brewing afterward. This allowed guests to enjoy local brews as well as checking out the signature cocktails provided at Vintage Views Bar. It was a gorgeous evening, and the perfect setting to mingle.
Drew of Bmore For The Record started off the reception with introductions and a romantic tune for the newlyweds to dance to. Following dinner, Drew kicked it up a notch and got everyone on the dance floor with tunes including Kate and Tony’s favorite artist-Bryce Vine. Part from skipping outside for a few minutes to pop some confetti, the Budzinski’s stayed on the dance floor with their attendees. They ended the evening with a jaw-dropping dip mid-sparkler + smoke bomb exit!
