There’s nothing quite like a wedding where you are surrounded by your friends, your family, and even your coworkers. Jeramie + Chas had an incredibly intimate ceremony at Herald Mail Media’s PressRoom in Hagerstown, MD, but before the ceremony, I caught up with Jeramie getting ready at Sagittarius Salon and Spa, where he works as a Master Stylist!
I love weddings! I love the magic of them, and most of all, I love the people! From best friends to the best sisters and brothers to the best daughters and sons – love comes in all shapes and sizes and getting to spend one of the most important days of your life with those who mean the most to you is an experience I love to be a part of. As an empath I feel the way love flows on the wedding day, and it makes me happy to know this feeling exists in droves.
When hair was done, we headed to Jeramie’s best friend’s house with her daughters and his daughters where they finished getting ready! Jeramie’s daughters are a huge part of Chas+Jeramie’s lives, and as such were a huge part of the wedding, too! They are such kind, sincere, and spirited young ladies, and I love seeing how they’re growing into themselves.
Afterwards, Elisha (my second shooter for the day and associate photographer!) and I headed to the Herald Mail Media Press Room to find Chas getting ready!
The “Wedding day!!” reminder on Chas’s phone on the background of him and Jeramie is just too perfect!
Moms are the ones who show up for us, who are there every step. If you’re lucky, you have multiple “moms” in your life.
So much happiness in one picture! Best woman!!!!
With everyone ready, it was time to GET MARRIED!!
These two HUSBANDS make a pretty fantastic pair, don’t you think?!
I couldn’t write this post without mentioning Pride Month! It’s the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, and if you know nothing of the history of Pride watch this. Pride is a social movement for equality and the celebration of being able to physically express love for whomever your heart falls for. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, this month is so important and represents our roots. I’ve always been a supporter of love, and it’s my goal to help create a safe place for those who otherwise don’t feel accepted. It’s up to us to change the way the world views love, and what better way than documenting it? You just can’t deny these two were meant to be together.
Jeramie + Chas reflect on their big day with love! The entire day was a blast and together, their advice for other couples planning their big day is plan early and don’t get frazzled!
Chas and mom certainly had a surprise for us during the mother/son dances! We LOVE IT!
Double the mama love. I dig it!
As not only a proud supporter but a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I thought it was fitting to post about Jeramie + Chas in June. Happy Pride! Check out local Pride schedules for Hagerstown Pride and Cumberland Pride! We’d love to celebrate with you!
