Nike & Blake | Kittamaqundi Community Church at Oliver’s Carriage House | Columbia, MD

When I write these intros, I always try – in case you haven’t noticed – to think of three things to describe the wedding. But I don’t feel like Nike and Blake’s wedding at the Kittamaqundi Community Church at historic Oliver’s Carriage House needs three, just one: JOY. These two and their families threw every last bit of their joy into this wedding – dancing like they’d absolutely lost their minds, shedding a couple tears of happiness and gratitude, doling out hugs by the poundful. It was my great pleasure to be there and be a tiny part of the day.

We started at the Doubletree Columbia, which has some fun art for playing with.

Did you know that wedding certificates include a family planning guide in Columbia? Helpful!

The crowd went absolutely bananas for Blake’s grandparents at the end of the anniversary dance.

The money dance can sometimes be really awkward and timid. This one was a riot of bills flying everywhere and squeals of laughter.
