Baltimore Brides Wed in Soft Industrial Wedding


Rebecca and Megan are two Baltimore brides that radiated love and warmth into a soft industrial style wedding day! Prompted by the Supreme Court's controversial ruling on abortion, these brides were, like many in the LGBTQ+ community, concerned about their rights being taken away as well. They knew in that moment that they weren't getting married next month or next year, but that week!

Follow along to see how these lovely ladies created a last minute artful and unique intimate wedding. All photography by Barbara O Photography .
