Cloisters Castle Wedding by Brittany Thomas Photography

This Cloisters Castle Wedding by Brittany Thomas Photography is nothing short of a fairytale. Set in the beautiful gardens of this historic Castle in Maryland, the couple shared a romantic first look and stole a few kisses before the celebrations began. You can just feel the love between these two! We just adore the jeweled tones and unique touches throughout this perfect fall day. Brittany tells us, “This past Saturday afternoon, I drove up a long, twisted driveway to a castle on a hilltop where Gina and McLean would be married in just a few hours. It was quiet and still, the entire day slightly muffled by the warm, overcast clouds that come just before autumn breaks through. The grounds at Cloisters Castle are absolutely stunning – the stone steps and balconies, the greenery and twinkle lights wrapping around the courtyard – it was the perfect backdrop for Gina and McLean’s jewel-toned, autumn wedding.

While Gina’s mother buttoned her gorgeous (and so soft!) gown, I asked Gina if it felt real yet, if she was ready. She smiled and said, “I was ready a long time ago.” Gina and McLean are both teachers, they met when McLean came to Baltimore with Teach for America – McLean teaches English (their tables were named after authors and poets; beautiful sonnets and poems were read during the ceremony) and Gina teaches art (she made the signage and cocktail sketches). I love how they infused their wedding day with the things they love, surrounded themselves with joyful family and friends, and soaked up every second of it. It was such a beautiful and happy day, and I’m so grateful I got to be a part of it. Their First Look was one of my favorites – I mean, just look at their faces when McLean turns around! – and their bridal party was so kind, helpful, and genuinely happy for their dear friends. Handkerchiefs were a must-have for their heartfelt ceremony, and everyone lifted their glasses (elderflower fizz! old-fashioneds!) to toast this incredible couple.”
