Ceresville Wedding Photos | Eric and Matt Married

Before getting to the Ceresville wedding photos, let me share a little about Eric and Matt’s wedding ceremony at Grace United Church of Christ in downtown Frederick, Maryland.  After getting ready and their first look in downtown Frederick (you can see a blog post on that here), Matt and Eric waited for their ceremony to […]

My deepest fears?  Horror movies and brooms.  Yes, folks.  Brooms. I used to love horror […]

and when you appear all the rivers sound in my body, bells shake the sky, and a hymn fills the world.
