It seemed like an eternity since I first met Tara and Andrew to talk about their wedding, and in a way it was! These two booked me in October 2007 for their wedding in May 2009 - almost 20 months in advance of their date. Their ceremony and reception were held at St. John's Catholic Church in Westminster, MD. This was definitely a family affair, plenty of aunts and uncles and cousins.
The level of attention to detail at this wedding was insane - it was amazing! The bride and groom are big-time rollercoaster enthusiasts, and that was the theme of the wedding. They had a custom logo made, and each guest got a rollercoaster action-style photo of the bride and groom. Instead of table numbers, each table was named after a coaster they had ridden on, complete with picture. Their cake was a really cool design, with each tier sloped in an opposing direction and a coaster track around the sides. The cake topper was the, well, topper - it was a fully custom polymer miniature of the bride and groom in a rollercoaster car made by Thumbprint Kids (their topper was so awesome that it's now the main image on the company's homepage). The detail on the topper was unreal, right down to the beading on the bride's dress and even her exact wedding shoes.
Best of all, I got to work with Kim Green of Kimberly Brooke Photography - one of my favorite wedding pals. We always have a great time, and we've worked together so much that it's almost like we have a telepathic link. I don't even have to tell her anything, she just knows what I'm thinking.
Tara and Andrew had a great time dancing and having fun with all of their family and friends, and it was an absolute pleasure working with them. They are obviously very in love, and are going to have a fantastic time on the rollercoaster of life together. Thank you so much for making me a part of your special day!!

Check out the sick level of detail, all the way down to her exact shoes... amazing!
All work and no play makes Evan a dull boy... Kim has all the fun while I have to work :)
As luck would have it for the rollercoaster bride and groom, there was a little carnival being held literally 200 yards up the street:
