Cylburn and Peabody Library Wedding

Hali and Keith’s wedding day was crafted with great elegance and romance. By choosing to celebrate at the Cylburn Arboretum and The George Peabody Library, they created one of the most visually exciting ceremony and reception combinations in Baltimore. The classical architecture of Mount Vernon and the whimsical maples at the Cylburn set the location for this story book wedding. The day was divided into sections like chapters. From getting ready to the final dance, their family and friends all played characters in this great story. There was even a groomsmen named “The Raven.” I’m not surprised though because every good story has interesting characters. So as I am writing this I’m thinking about how words and writing have never really been my strongest talent. Rather photo stories and the world of observation is how I like to share experiences. So check out their photo story book below and see the love and grace that was Hali and Keith’s wedding day.

Something I admire about Hali and Keith is their ability to leave a remarkable impression. Their reserved and soft personalities enfold visionary minds and spirits. I know this not because they told me, but rather from observing how they interact with each other and the world around them. I know this because of what I saw unfold on their wedding day and because I know it takes an exceptional couple to make an exceptional wedding day experience. Congrats Hali and Keith!
