Musket Ridge Country Club Wedding Pictures – Congratulations Megan and Jared!

Where do I start?  I’ve known Megan for a long time.  I met her soon after I started my wedding photography business and she helped me photograph a couple of weddings.  Her boys are very close to my nephew’s ages so we’ve followed along as they’ve grown up.  I photographed her and her boys about a year and a half ago, so much fun!  And as I’ve watched she and Jared be so intentional about their relationship and blending their families for the last 6 years, I’ve been so impressed.  And was so happy for them when they got engaged last summer.   I was incredibly honored when she asked me to document their day which included lovely plans for a fall outdoor ceremony at Musket Ridge in Maryland where Jared loves to play golf and the mountain view goes on for miles. But the weather had other plans and it was extremely cold and windy.  We made it outside for a few pictures, including the big moment for the first look, and enjoyed the view from the club house which was such a pretty spot for a wedding.  The joining of two families couldn’t have be sweeter!
