Real Maryland Wedding With Trevor & Emily

Meet The Couple

Engagement Photo

When asked about their first kiss, Emily simply stated, “It was awesome, perfect, and in a hammock.” This, almost completely, describes the relationship between Trevor and Emily. These two love birds met in Utah in January of 2011; her first memory of Trevor being him “showing off” on the piano playing “Great Balls of Fire” during a church choir practice.They began dating in August of 2011 when Emily invited Trevor to go running with her. It wasn’t long after that until they, and anyone within two feet of them, knew that they were meant for each other.  In a way, Emily’s sweetness and Trevor’s (sometimes described as annoying by his siblings) habit of knowing everything about just about everything, strikes a balance between the two, making it easy to love one another.

Bride and Groom

Trevor proposed to Emily at a picnic at the Corona Del Mar beach. His family can remember his eagerness as he whisked her off to this specially planned picnic after an 8 hour drive from Utah to California to visit his family, unable to wait another day.

Mormon Temple

The couple was married six months latter in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint’s Maryland Temple on May 4th.

Little Details

Sunflower Bouquet

For her bridal’s Emily used big sunflowers that really just match her beaming personality. Then on her wedding day her bouquet was made of Lily of the Valley and were arranged by a close friend.

She wanted to keep things simple and pretty, so her colors were sage green, cream, and coral pink. She had her bridesmaids pick out their own dresses in cream and had her family dress in cream also.

Wedding Family

The ceremony was the most important part for them and as Emily indicated, “It went perfectly”. They were most grateful to have so much family and friends present, especially since they decided to have the wedding in Emily’s hometown in Maryland and all of Trevor’s family were on the west coast.

At the reception, they upheld quite a few of wedding traditions including cutting the cake, the father daughter and mother and son dance, the first dance, and even a money dance! They also did a bouquet toss and a garter toss, both were caught by the maid of honor and the best man!

This is a great way to have those important family members who can’t make it to the wedding feel like they are a part of everything!

A Second Reception

Then, because the families lived on opposite coasts, the couple had a second reception or open house at the Fenn’s residence in California so that more of Trevor’s family and friends could attend.
