Finding the perfect wedding to tie the knot is a very common question we as photographers get asked. I decided to make a list of some great wedding venues in Baltimore Maryland. I cannot wait to photograph weddings at some of these locations.

 

George Peabody library 

Filled with thousands of books, the George Peabody Library creates a unique reception venue for your wedding especially if you are a book lover. Most people never think of weddings when you hear the word library, but the George Peabody library gives you a rich and ornate space for your wedding ceremony. This is also one of the top 50 wedding venues in America.

As a Baltimore/Washington DC photographer I have had the privilege to do a lot of cultural nuptials and they are always fun to cover. So when Blayne reached out to me to photograph their Ethiopian traditional wedding ceremony I was excited. The whole ceremony was beautiful, intimate and full of love. Both couples were so in love with each other as you can tell from their photographs below. The ceremony took place in Silver Spring MD and it was absolutely amazing.
