Kat & Brian WeddingAugust 8, 2011
About the same time last year I shot a wedding at Irvine Nature Center in Owings Mill, Maryland. This year I got to do the same. I have to say this place is gorgeous and probably even more so in the fall with leaves changing colors. Irvine Nature Center has to be one of the best places for green weddingsÂ around the DC metro area. I’ll probably do another post just on the location itself.
Kat is from Ohio and moved down here not too long ago. She and Brian are both runners and that’s how they met. The first time I met them they looked veryÂ athleticÂ and dressed almost the same with one of those black polyester/fleece fabric outdoor jackets. My job on the wedding day started at a local hair salon called Thomas’ Hair Salon in Glyndon, MD where Kat and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done. Irvine is just less than ten minutes down the road. It was partly cloudy with good amount of sunshine and the temperature was in the mid 80s. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful spring Saturday.
Because they both love running, Kat planned a little after ceremony surprise for Brian where they put on running shoes and trailed off into the woods in the back of the main area. The night ended with a lot of fun and 3 hours of non-stop dancing at Irvine Nature Center before they and their close friends headed off to another location.
