Summer Tilghman Island Wedding

Sep 21, 2022

It was one of the most beautiful days you could ask for, for a September wedding. The sun was out, breeze was going, and only a few clouds in the sky.

The perfect setting for a summer Tilghman Island wedding!

Dylan was patiently waiting outside on a pathway shaded by the trees that swayed in the wind around him. He was waiting for the moment that he heard his soon-to-be wife’s voice telling him to turn around. The anticipation that morning had been killing him. He was so ready to finally say, “I Do.”

To finally call her his wife!

Dana slowly walked along the pebble walkway behind him. Carefully moving as the train of her Amsale dress flowed softly behind. She was absolutely stunning! The dress complemented her beauty perfectly! As she came to a stop a couple steps behind him, it was as if the whole area fell silent. It seemed as if it was just the two of them.

Alone, to enjoy this special moment!

After taking one more final breath, Dana said the words that Dylan had been waiting for. “Dylan, you can turn around!” With one last quick inhale, Dylan turned around to see his beautiful fiancé standing before his eyes! His mouth dropped, and his eyes instantly grew wide. He could not believe how incredible she looked!

He was in awe!

As he walked up to her to embrace her, tears began to well up in both of their eyes. It was finally their wedding day! The day they could call each other husband and wife. They could not have asked for a better day for their summer Tilghman Island wedding. The rest of the day these two were inseparable. Holding hands. Sharing kisses. Giving each other a quick smile.

It was so beautiful to watch!

They are madly in love, and it shows in everything they do! It is such a joy to have a job where I get to capture those moments for couples to cherish forever. How did I get so lucky with such amazing HMP Couples! I will never take it for granted! Dana and Dylan, you two are amazing! Thank you for giving me the honor to be a part of your day and capture those memories. Every moment was so special! I am beyond happy for you two, and I can’t wait to see where the next two, five, or ten years takes you two! It is going to be magical no matter what! Congrats!!
