Ceresville Mansion Wedding | Matt & Eric Married!

When I first emailed Matt about his Ceresville Mansion wedding, he asked me if I was okay photographing his gay wedding.  Okay?  After shooting Eric and Matt’s wedding, I feel honored to have been present for the day.  I responded to that first email with, “Who you marry is unimportant to me.  I cannot deliver good photos, however, for any couple who doesn’t truly love one another.”

And then I watched.  I watched as Matt’s gregarious personality led the conversation.  When conversation slowed or vulnerabilities bubbled near the surface, Eric’s calm strength presented itself.  Matt is the knight in shining armor while Eric is the solid night watchman.

When I arrived in Matt’s getting ready suite, the atmosphere was loud.  They guys laughed, and Matt paced.  He nervously bit his lip and paced.

Eric’s preparation suite was the opposite.  The room was calm, composed.  Even the room was immaculate.

Matt and Eric choose navy and gray accents for their wedding-day details.  Both wore J. Crew suits.  Matt’s in gray and Eric’s in navy.  The ties and suspenders are from The Tie Bar.  Matt and Eric were able to purchase bow ties, standard ties, and suspenders in the same fabric from The Tie Bar.

Many of the grooming supplies are from Citizen Frederick– a local Frederick clothing shop and old school barber.  I shot my son’s first haircut at this swanky, downtown boutique.  You can see that post here.

After getting ready, Matt and Eric met in downtown Frederick in front of a historic building.  The met to do their first look.  Adorable, right?

After their first look, we shot for a few minutes before arriving at Grace Christian Church.  I loved Matt and Eric’s suits and contrasting shoes.
