A bride dances into her wedding morning, and adds a sophisticated fun touch to her day, in these images from a historic Liriodendron Mansion wedding in Bel Air, Maryland, by EyeWonder Photography. It’s hard to argue with the grace exhibited by our bride here: she’s stunning in a gown that wraps beautifully around her, showing off her figure before the skirt flares out in a mermaid-type ruffle over her striking high blue heels. The men harmonize with that elegant turquoise-aqua shade in debonair silk handkerchiefs — and fun striped socks! — while the maids are drop-dead gorgeous in short strapless blue gowns with multi-layered swishy skirts. The groom and his men have a moment of “busting a move” in the lobby, awaiting the reveal; it comes in the dappled shade outdoors on the magnificent grounds.
Finally, the bride takes her father’s arm as she and her maids process down the gracious staircase to where the minister and musicians await outdoors. Amid singing, devout prayers, and a few tears, the vows are said. As the sun sinks lower in the sky, the happy couple poses for a few more shots on the sumptuous grounds; then, lights twinkle on until the mansion is aglow, a stunning backdrop for the introduction of the new Mr. and Mrs. for the first time at the reception. It’s easy to see the way this party wants to celebrate: it’s all about the tunes and great dance moves! As the evening winds to a close, there are tons of smiles and laughter for the newlyweds, a fitting close to a day full of great memories that will last a lifetime.
