A Personal and heartfelt ceremony

J&B chose to keep their marriage ceremony an intimate affair with immediate family and friends at their Wharf apartment. For their elopement portrait, we hit up many locations around the Wharf, including the S'mores truck, the District Pier and glowing string lights, and the Recreation Pier with the swings. I loved that it was the perfect blue hour to encapsulate the cozy love between A&J. Congratulations on your marriage!
