REAL WEDDING…| Mark + Mariaelena {5.10.14}

Hello all,

Please welcome Mark Lewis and Mariaelena Pierobon.  This beautiful and lively couple were wed on May 10, 2014 at Woodlawn Farm Estates located in Ridge,MD.  The couple celebrated their union with family and friends from near and far.  Many traveled from Italy and Germany.

Mark and Mariaelena selected an elegant color palette which consisted of navy, white, and silver.  Mariaelena wore a beautiful dress accented with lace detailing. The bridesmaids each wore a navy dress in a different design. Mark and the groomsmen all wore black  tuxedos.  Mariaelena’s mother designed and prepared all of the flowers: creating stunning bouquets and floral centerpieces made of white calla lilies and peonies.  After exchanging vows at the water’sedge, everyone continued the celebration under a tent next to the historic house and wine cottage.  

  Thank you Deb Duncan for these stunning photographs that captured the love  and joy of this beautiful day.

Congratulations to Mark and Mariaelena!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your fabulous day!
