New Years Eve Wedding with Confetti Cannon
On instagram earlier this month, I wrote a bit about how New Years resolutions put a lot of pressure on us because we’re usually all trying our best anyway, but I feel like throwing a party to start the year off right is the perfect approach. So I loved shooting on NYE for this wedding.
And… as much as I love the sunshine, admittedly, it’s kind of special to have the sun set so early in the winter. You get enjoy sunset before dinner even starts and, when there’s a party to be had, it immediately starts the dance party when the lights dim on the dance floor.
Jess and Nick were married at the Josephine Butler Parks Center and were accompanied by their amazing old lady French bulldog.

It doesn’t happen often that I get to shoot in the snow. Sometimes, old snow sits on the ground in the background, sometimes dirty tracks in the snow can be found halfway through the day, but fresh snow is something typically reserved for early risers. And that’s why this day felt so amazing. It started snowing in the morning and covered Baltimore in a blanket of white and kept it fresh all afternoon. And instead of fretting, Hannah put on snow boots under her dress, Jon put on a dapper coat, and they had their first look in front of a red brick building, so perfectly representative of B-more.
The ceremony and reception were both at St. Johns Church which is officially one of the most Baltimore venues I’ve ever set foot in. Of course, when I walked in and remembered I’d been in the building for the annual craft fairs, but instead of being full of paper artists, artfully created clothing, and homemade food for sale, the room was lit by string lights and full of inviting tables and chairs and the tables were peppered with pinecones and needles, setting the stage perfectly on this very snowy day.
They had pizza and cakes, danced into the night, and this is how it went.
