“Adam and I were both born and raised in Maryland. We are very proud of our state and decided to have a Maryland themed wedding. My brother-in-law officiated our wedding which made it very special. We tried to keep our ceremony short and sweet so we could get to all of the fun stuff! We both each have a very close group of friends from high school, which is why our wedding party was so large. We have all been friends since high school so it was amazing to celebrate this day with people standing next to us that we have grown up with. Everyone in our wedding party has known each other for years so it made the whole day incredibly fun and comfortable.Adam and I have known each other since we were 14. My family’s closest friends growing up have a son Patrick (he was groomsman). His best friend was Adam. I first met Adam when we were freshman in high school. We were always very good friends. He asked me to Junior Prom and we dated briefly after. We stayed close friends when we went away to college. I always saw him as a very good friend. Winter break senior year of college we were all at a party and I saw him a new light. We started dating and the rest is history! He proposed in February of 2014 very romantically.” - Alexandra

How They Met: Becky and Ahmed met one memorable evening in the spring of 2007. Becky was out with her roommate celebrating the weekend, and Ahmed happened to be at a friend’s birthday celebration at Lima Lounge in Washington, DC. Ahmed approached Becky to break the ice and introduce one of his friends who found her to be “the most attractive in the place.” Flattered but uninterested in the admirer, Becky tried to maneuver out of the conversation. However, Ahmed found himself interested in Becky and would not give up. Finally, after a lengthy conversation, Becky agreed to give Ahmed her roommates contact information instead of hers. Shortly after that Ahmed and Becky parted ways. A short time later Ahmed finally connected with Becky’s roommate and was able to get Becky’s phone number. After several months of courtship (according to Ahmed) via phone and text, Becky finally agreed to have dinner with Ahmed on a lazy Sunday afternoon/evening. Ironically, still to this day, Becky and Ahmed still disagree about when their first official date was. She believed it was two “friends” having dinner while he was convinced it was a “date”. Well, whatever that Sunday afternoon/evening/dinner/date was supposed to be, it turned into something much more. Five hours later they finally said good night, and began their own love story.

The Proposal: During the annual 4th of July trip to Becky’s family’s cottage, Ahmed flew in a few days before Becky, using a clever cover story. Ahmed said he wanted to take her father golfing for his birthday (which falls two days before July 4th). Ahmed coordinated the golf outing with Becky’s two brothers and her dad. During the outing, he shared the news and asked her father for her hand in marriage. The following day, they traveled up north to join Becky and the rest of her family at the cottage. During their stay, Ahmed waited and waited, searching for the perfect location and perfect moment to propose. On the 3rd of July, Ahmed and Becky spent the entire day down at the water going out on boat rides, tubing and enjoying the downtime away from the city. At sunset, while lying on a hammock overlooking the lake, Ahmed popped the question. With only her father and one brother in the know, it was a complete surprise to Becky and the rest of her family who were enjoying a bonfire close by. Both families were overjoyed at the news, but no one was more excited about the proposal than Becky and Ahmed.

After photographing weddings for over twenty two years, founder of Bradley Images has gotten hitched! Erin and Bradley met at a job interview. Brad would not hire Erin because he knew he wanted to date her, and that’s how it all began. Brad proposed to Erin at her favorite restaurant. The best part of the wedding day for Erin was being relaxed while getting ready for her big day, and looking her best for Brad and all of their guests as she had her hair and makeup done. Erin and Bradley traveled to Italy and France for their honeymoon after their wedding.

Yevgeny and I met through a mutual friend seven years ago. He made me laugh right away and it was pretty much love at first sight. He told his mother a week later that he was going to marry me and I was the one. Of course I thought he was crazy. However, five years after dating he proposed to me with a custom ring that him and I designed together. It drove me insane knowing he had the ring and not knowing when or where he was going to propose. He proposed to me July 10th, during his birthday dinner. I totally did not expect that. We decided to stay engaged for a few years before officially tying the knot. We took our time planning, and everything came out perfect. What made the wedding so personal was the fact that we put a lot of effort and time into planning and organizing such big wedding by our selves. It was amazing to walk in and see everything come together, and it was completely breathtaking. I couldn’t have asked for a better, more beautiful night.” – Evelina

Our favorite memories were getting ready and taking pictures at the house we rented in Damascus, MD which sleeps 20 people, and taking pictures in the field. We loved the way everyone was so accommodating and helpful and the reception was just darling to us. I love lights so I bought a bunch of lights and karen strung them across to make it feel like you were dancing under the stars. We met in high school and then didn’t talk for 5 years and then dated again later in life, so it was really special for us to walk people through our hometown of downtown Frederick, MD and then into the countryside to party. It was sort of like our journey of how we met. ” – Allison
