Baltimore Museum of Art Wedding // Baltimore, MD

More art museum weddings please! I spoke with Carolyn and Jurgen waaay back in like…2020? They were planning their Baltimore Museum of Art wedding for the following spring and couldn’t wait to have all their families meet for their special day. Unfortunately, the pandemic threw a wrench in ALL their wedding plans. They psotponed their wedding to May of 2022 and they finally got to have their celebration at Gertrude’s Restaurant in the art museum!

One of the most important aspects of their wedding is all their family being able to attend. Jurgen is from the Netherlands, so all his family had plans to fly in for the wedding. Once pandemic lockdowns and flight restrictions took effect, they could no longer attend. I know that played a huge role in their postponement, and I’m so happy they were all able to gather to see Jurgen marry Carolyn.

The day began in Towson at the cutest little AirBnb! Carolyn got ready with her mom, Jurgen’s sister, and nieces. Her mom and dad picked up the florals from the florist across the street and they were just so beautiful! They wanted a photo of their invitation suite, which also had the cutest little surprise message in it! They had given those to their parents and immediate families, and planned to announce to everyone at the reception.

First Look at Baltimore Museum of Art

After they were both done getting ready, we all headed for the museum for their first look! The forecast was pretty bleak that day, and it rained on and off. Thankfully we were able to use the beautiful overhang of the museum for their first look! Jurgen had the sweetest reaction to Carolyn, literally no amount of rain could bring them down. Because they didn’t have a wedding party, they were able to soak up all this time together and take some fun portraits! Once the rain died down, we made our way into the Baltimore art museum sculpture garden and made the dreamiest photos!

Ceremony in the Sculpture Garden

Gertrude’s Restaurant is connected to the Baltimore Museum of Art, and you’re able to rent the space for your wedding! Because they had a smaller guest count, this couldn’t have been more perfect for them. It created a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. They had to have their ceremony under the tent, but it still looks so stunnign with all the twinkle lights!

After the most darling ceremony and a fun cocktail hour, it was party time!! This crowd was INCREDIBLE to photograph! The Dutch really know how to party! There was so much laughter, singing, and intense dancing, and made photographing an absolute blast! And of course, the moment they annonuced to everyone that they are having a baby! This wedding day is truly a special one and holds a deep love in my heart. Carolyn and Jurgen are two genuine, loving people and I wish them nothing but happiness in their lives. Especially now with their adorable baby and new home in the Carolinas!! Congrats you two!!
