It’s time for a new post in our Featured Wedding Series!

Today’s post features Alex and JP. These two became husband and wife on November 14, 2020 at Rosewood Farms in Elkton, MD.

About the Wedding

Simply put, Alex and JP are the sweetest! Living in New York and planning a wedding in Maryland comes with its own challenges, but the planning was going well. Then 2020 came… just like all couples this year, Alex and JP had to navigate a wedding during COVID. They ultimately postponed from the spring to November.

To add to the challenges they already faced, JP’s mom had been fighting cancer. Very sadly, just a week before their “I Do’s,” JP’s mom passed away. Both Alex, JP, and their families knew she wouldn’t want them to change their plans, but rather celebrate!

Even though she wasn’t present, she was still able to send a gift to the couple from heaven. JP’s childhood friend was serving in the military in Guam and was not granted permission to come home for the wedding. Because of the passing, he ultimately was able to make his way home and surprised our groom at the rehearsal. JP walked in thinking he was just about to start rehearsing. Lo and behold, his friend was standing at the other end of the ceremony smiling back at him. We were able to capture the moment on video and it gives us chills to this day!

The surprise was the perfect way to kick off the wedding festivities. It just got better from there! JP’s mom sent down a sunny, warm day in the middle of November for their wedding. Friends and family gathered and surrounded this couple with so much love and laughter. We feel honored to have been a part of Alex & JP’s best day ever!
