Bowie, MD Wedding at Ascension Catholic Church | Heidi & Jimmy

I spent last Saturday with Heidi and Jimmy as they were married at the Ascension Catholic Church in Bowie, MD.  It was the quintessentially perfect autumn day and the leaves were at peak color!

I met up with Heidi at her parent's house while she prepared for her wedding day with her three sisters and mother by her side.  Heidi and her father shared a heartfelt first look as she descended her family's stairs in the home where she grew up.  I then joined Jimmy and the groomsmen at the church as they waited for Heidi and the wedding ceremony to begin.  After the newlyweds said their vows we headed over to their new home for a few group photos and portraits of them together.  Then it was off to the newly renovated Comfort Inn & Conference Center to dance the night away!

Heidi's family has been in Bowie for several generations so the city is near and dear to them.  I too grew up in Bowie and ended up coming back to purchase my first home here.  What a JOY it was to spend the day with Heidi and Jimmy during their wedding day in this beautiful place we all call home!

The details of their day were special and beautiful.  Heidi's looked perfectly stunning in her Stella York bridal gown while Jimmy looked handsome in a classic black tux.  Heidi's mother painted the painting of the newlyweds in front of Ascension that I fell in love with!  You'll see it featured several times below :)  Heidi's family baked the delicious cookies for their traditional Pittsburgh cookie table.  It's a thing (and super yummy too)!  Look it up!

Heidi & Jimmy - I hope you two are having a blast and enjoying the sun and sand!  Congratulations again and thank you for the honor of documenting your day!!
