Cylburn Arboretum Secret Garden Wedding Baltimore | Lea & Matt

I’ve kept this one under my hat for a little bit, as it was just published on Junebug Weddings, but finally, here it is! Lea’s and Matt’s Secret Garden Wedding, which Lea and I share as childhood favorite book. The art deco touches were icing on the cake. The venue, Cylburn Arboretum was a perfect choice, as well as stunning locally sourced flowers from Local Color Flowers and excellent farm to table food by Clementine. Another coincidence — Lea’s bouquet was Lily of the Valley, which I had at my own wedding. Lea and I connected like sisters over the magic of fairy tale, chased lightning bugs and stories and I’m so glad I got a chance to work with the two of them and their family.

I got a perfect shot of this guy, which means Lea and Matt have been inducted into my secret bee club.
