Real Weddings…| Stevi-Marie + Adam

Hello all,

Please welcome Stevi-Marie and Adam!  We helped to plan Stevi- Marie and Adams big day.  Big indeed, with approximately 500 guests in attendance, we wanted everyone to enjoy the day and partake in the joyous union of Stevi-Marie and Adam!  They were wed at  St. Peter Claver Catholic Church located in St. Inigoes, MD.  The wedding reception was held on the beautiful lawn overlooking the Potomac River.  It was such a perfect day.   Judah Avenue Photography was able to capture such beautiful and romantic photos throughout the day. They had a full cast of characters with Stevi and Adam’s bridal party.  They were so fun and full of excitement for the bride and groom.  Stevi-Marie selected the colors pink, purple, and silver. These are perfect colors for a summer wedding.  This amazing wedding was featured in an online magazine.  You can view the wedding video at the end of the post.

Congratulations to Stevi-Marie and Adam!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your fabulous day!

Stevi-Marie and her bridesmaids got dressed at Rosedale Manor located on the Greenwell property.



She was surrounded by the love and support of her closest family and friends.


Stevi-Marie couldn’t help but to get teary eyed while reading the love letter from Adam.



Time to get into her wedding gown!  Yay!!!


Stevi-Marie’s mom was there to help her get dressed.  That was such a special moment for the both of them.





Adam’s turn! He was all smiles while reading Stevi-Marie’s letter entitled “The Love of My Life”.



One last pose with his guys, then on to the church!


St. Peter Claver Catholic Church is the first African American Catholic Church in St. Mary’s County.  Stevi-Marie’s family grew up attending this church.  It is a special place.


Normally a unity candle has 3 candles.  The bride and groom’s mother lights the smaller taper candle and the bride and groom uses that candle to light the larger pillar candle as a sign of unity.  The family came up with a beautiful idea for their unity candle.  The grandparents lit the outer candles, then the parents, then the bride and groom lit the pillar candle.  They wanted the symbol of the grandparents partaking in the unity ceremony to show as the foundation of the family support that Stevi-Marie and Adam have as a married couple. Breathtaking….


Adam broke out into a huge smile as he saw his beautiful bride walk down the aisle.



The ceremony was a full Catholic Mass with several priests and church figures serving during mass.  This was truly a celebration of God and Stevi-Marie and Adam’s love.


The families couldn’t help but to give God praise on this day!




How cute are these two?!!!!


On to the reception! The guests traveled to the Greenwell State Park located in Hollywood, MD.  They were greeted with cocktails, lawn games and a beautiful scenic view of sprawling lawns and the river.


Guests signed the picture frame as well as giant jenga puzzle pieces as the guest book.  Stevi-Mari wanted a custom card box to adorn the gift table.




They were so excited to get into the reception tent and celebrate with family and friends.  Adam’s face says it all. Yay!!!


Stevi-Marie is beamed with joy as she danced with her dad.


Adam’s dance with his mom started as cute dance with just the two of them. Well…


Midway through the song, the groomsmen came out on the dance floor and surrounded Adam’s mom for a group dance.  It was the cutest thing I have ever seen.  Good job guys!




Adam and his dad are both a part of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity.  It is customary that they sing a special song to the bride during the wedding reception while joining hands.  This was so amazing.


Stevi-Marie and several of her bridesmaids and guests attended Spelman College in Atlanta.  It is customary that they sing a song to the groom during the wedding reception.  So sweet!


To describe the wedding cake, I first wanted to show this amazing picture of Adam and the groomsmen showing their superhero t-shirts.  This was so cool that….


The cake was designed with superheros too!  How awesome! :o)


They are such a beautiful couple!  All the best to you both!!!
