Samantha & Jon
Samantha and Jon tied the knot this past on June and now are expecting their first baby and I am so excited for them. They are such a beautiful couple inside and out and they have such a loving family and friend group. Samantha has the biggest smile that lights up a room. Her warm loving personality compliments Jon’s sense of humor and rugged man personality. When you see the couple together you can just feel how much love they have for one another. Samantha & her girls got ready at her parents home not far from the venue. The girls sported matching pj’s that were so adorable. Jon surprised Samantha with a cute card which showcased his truck on the front (Showing off his sense of humor & his first love) Samantha was cracking up and quickly switched to a sense of awe as she read his thoughtful words and admired the beautiful neckless he gave her for her wedding present. Jon and the boys got ready at Samantha & Jon’s home where they shared pre-ceremony drinks and lots of laughs.
The couple tied the knot at Hunt Valley Country club in Phoenix Maryland. Hunt Valley Country club. The venue is a classic ballroom-style wedding venue that overlooks 265-acres of scenic golf course landscape and provides a wonderful backdrop for weddings.
This romantic wedding featured a vivid color palette of bright pinks, navy and blush. The bride and her girls sported beautiful bouquets that were lush and bright and matched the unique & fun hot pink bridesmaid. Samantha sported the most beautifully romantic dress that had elegant pearls and cap sleeves. Her bridal details and reception details were timeless & elegant and complimented the fun outgoing color scheme so well.
The ceremony is under a tented terrace that peers out over the rolling tree-covered hillside . It is truly a beautiful view. This ceremony was full of happy tears and laughter. The couple opted to stick with the traditional first look. Samantha’s father escorted her down the aisle and in that moment as Jon was seeing his bride for the first time it was pure magic. The look on Jon’s face is by far one of the best groom reactions I have ever witnessed. He had tears of joy streaming down his face and you could just see and feel how happy and ready he was to marry the love of his life. When I first met Jon he came off as this tough, rugged guy’s guy. So seeing him show this raw, real emotion was such a joy and made me so happy to be sharing this moment with them. Samantha had the biggest smile on her face as she saw her man for the first time. Samantha & Jon wrote their own vows and their wasn’t a dry eye in the seats. These two were meant to be and they will no doubt have a long & happy life together. There was even a magical moment where the wind blew just right and blew Samantha’s veil in the most romantic way across the couple. The moment was absolutely stunning.
The reception area at Hunt Valley is spectacular and is definitely the focal point to the beautiful venue and what they are best known for. Guests are treated to a gorgeous room that has a wall of windows that overlook the golf course and the sunset. Samantha & Jon’s bridal party started the night off by lining the wall of windows so the couple could make their big entrance as Mr & Mrs Coale. The couple shared their first dance and then the best man and maid’s of honor had amazing speeches to kick off the reception. The DJ’s got the party going that kept everyone on the dance floor all night long.
Samantha & Jon are truly the sweetest couple and one of the most in love pair I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Their love at first sight mentality and humor is truly incredible and I know they will have the most amazing future together.
