I know I’ve said it before, but I feel so blessed to have amazing couples! Carol and Jason are one of them! I knew the day that I met them that they were not only an AWESOME couple, both inside AND out, but that their wedding would be a super fun! And as an added bonus they have truly become friends! Anyway - I seriously could gush on and on about these two, but I’ll try to keep it short cause I know you just want to see the pictures anyway!
I started the day with Carol and the girls and Greg met up with Jason and the guys at the same hotel. It was already a party while they were getting ready - surrounded by the best bridal party, full of friends and family. The ceremony was held at the Sacred Heart Parish in Glyndon - in their sweet chapel. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Hector Mateus-Ariza in both English and Spanish, which I thought was really cool! Then it was off to the Rolling Road Golf Club in Catonsville for ONE HUGE PARTY! And when I say PARTY, I mean PARTY! This was one awesome reception - the dance floor was packed all night long and everybody had an great time - they were begging the DJ to keep it going!
There was so much thought put into Carol and Jason’s wedding. The details were awesome! There was a surprise Mariachi Band that came in at dinner time - a REAL Mariachi Band! AWESOME! They had a person there doing caricatures of their guests and there was a gorgeous candy buffet. And those are just a few of my favorite details!
Of course I have to give a huge shout out to all the other people that made Carol & Jason’s the event of the year-

So here are a just a few of my favorites! CLICK HERE to see their slideshow! I had so many favorites that after I selected my slideshow images I had to cut that down by over half!! There is so much I would just love to share with you - this will just have to do!!
Right as I was getting there a huge box was delivered to the bride - her gift from her groom! This was her reaction when she opened it up!! I’m pretty sure she loved it! I can’t wait to see her pictures from her honeymoon that she took with her brand new camera!
A little last minute touch up before walking down the aisle…
Could Jason’s reaction to seeing his bride be any better? I think not!
Carol’s Daddy loves her a lot - he hugged her so tight at the end of that aisle - it was so sweet!
Some casual portraits of this cute couple…
Of course we had to do some jump shots with this fun group!
Carol and Jason did not one, but TWO first dances! The first was a slow love song and the second was a ’salsa’ song (that’s what I used for their slideshow!) that they danced to. They seriously rocked the house and had so much fun doing it! I just LOVE when a groom sings to his bride as they dance!
Have you ever seen a real Mariachi Band? They rocked! I’m pretty sure this guy is the real deal!
The toasts at the wedding were wonderful - lots of laughter and smiles, with a little bit of tears, just how good toasts should be.
I just love a good Daddy/Daughter dance - these two are so special…
Just wiping away her tears - how sweet is that?
And Jason’s mom is AWESOME. His whole family is actually! So now I see why Jason is such a fun and amazing guy.
And now for some serious reception action…
And you know I love my details!
Cool Lego cufflinks, huh??! The guys had green and orange to match the colors of the wedding!
Carol and Jason - we love you guys! You are awesome! Your wedding was awesome! And we feel truly blessed to have been a part of it! We look forward to seeing what the future holds for both of you - wonderful things we are sure! Can’t wait to see you again! Hope the honeymoon was AMAZING! hugs!
