I've been waiting for the wedding day of Linda and Matt since last year because their wedding is extra special to me. I've known Linda since college when we were in the same campus ministry. If you remember, we had their engagement session at the Glenview Mansion and Lab Cafe in Rockville back in January, and their story is just as magical as their wedding day!
Their wedding day began at their church where they both serve, as it means so much for them to be married at their home church and have their church witness their union and commitment. Though the week leading up to the day has been rainy, the weather held up for their day! We only got a bit sprinkle and cloudy sky for the most part. They got ready with their wedding party at the church and enlisted friends and family to help with decorations of the sanctuary. The sanctuary was decorated with beautiful white hydrangeas, roses, and baby's breaths. We had the First Look at the front of the church, with the red bricks for backdrop. Linda's dad walked her down the aisle and gave her hand to Matt. Besides a song of praise in the begging and a message from their pastor, Matt surprised her bride with a song with his sister!
The reception was held at the Madigan's Waterfront, and their guests enjoyed the lovely waterfront view on the porch while having delicious cocktail hour affair. Meanwhile, we got to spent some time with Linda and Matt and their wedding party for portraits by the dock and the local quaint park. We headed back to the restaurant for the grand entrance, and the reception unfolded itself with the first dance of the newlywed, speeches of the best man and maid of honor/siblings of Linda and Matt, and the cake cutting. We ended the night with sparklers exit for the couple!
Congratulations, Linda and Matt! It was such an honor to be part of your wedding day! We loved and enjoyed every bit of it!
