Wei and Victor had an amazing fall wedding at The Belmont Historic Manor and Park, a charming Maryland wedding venue in Howard County. It was my first time photographing at this venue and I came away looking forward to the next wedding there. I think you’ll see why.
The historic plantation was founded in the 1730s. Still retaining its original Colonial Georgian architectural style, the Belmont Manor offers 68 acres of beautiful trees, a cottage, a carriage house, extending gardens, a gorgeous ceremony site with a pond, and a stunning estate.
The Manor house provides ample space for the bridal party and groomsmen to prepare before the wedding. Both bridal and groom’s suites are upstairs but accessed through different staircases. This was perfect for Wei and Victor who were doing a first look and didn’t want to run into each other. The house is beautifully decorated with antiques from the time period and I loved the amount of natural light that was coming into the entire estate.
Victor stood waiting outside in front of the house and as Wei approached him by tapping him on his shoulder, he turned towards her and his reactions were priceless. He was so thrilled at his beautiful bride and did a whole 360 turn to take in all angles of her! It was so incredibly touching.
They requested to have a portrait in front of the Belmont Estate House.
The carriage house and pond provided a gorgeous backdrop for their ceremony.
The golden hour was truly golden so I spent a few moments with them doing portraits.
Their reception was held in an outdoor tent off the manor estate house. I loved following Wei and Victor around as they went to each table and did a champagne toast with their guests.
Wei and Victor’s first dance was so much fun to photograph because of their happiness and joy.
