REAL WEDDINGS: Kelly & Jeff // String Theory & Nightsong

thumb

{As told by Photographer, Jennifer McMenamin on her blog} Kelly + Jeff fell in love through Baltimore’s restaurants. They highlighted the role that the city’s chefs played in their love story by naming their tables after their favorite restaurants, by planning a fabulous meal at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore for their guests and by stopping by their most-favorite of favorite restaurants — Cindy Wolf’s Charleston — for some quick photos after their ceremony at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen.

The couple further spoiled their guests with a late-night snack when Daniel Raffel of Baltimore’s Haute Dog Carte set up the swankiest hot dog stand ever in the Four Seasons, complete with lanterns, darling cafe umbrellas and the signature gourmet dogs for which customers line Falls Road several times a week. Beyond the food and the exquisite decor, it was a day when the expected elements of a wedding became the most moving and extraordinary. Kelly, who uses a wheelchair, walked down the aisle with her father, danced with her new husband at their reception and enjoyed a special dance with her dad, just as she had hoped and dreamed. The joy in those moments left many of her friends and family crying happy tears.
