Hi, y’all! Welcome to the wedding blog, a journal about my couples, weddings, travel, and family. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm Julia

Sarah + Adam


Charming Countryside Wedding | Zigbone Farm Retreat,MD

Sarah + Adam’s charming countryside wedding was the perfect way to kick off the 2021 wedding season. And man-oh-man did they set the bar high for the rest of my couples!

Sarah + Adam’s wedding day was unique on all accounts! From their stunning venue, to the flawless incorporation of softball, to the overwhelming intimacy of their whole day. I could not be more excited to share their story with you!

As I drive through the beautiful Maryland countryside, I’m mesmerized by the gorgeous farms nestled among the gentle rolling hills.  As I pull into the gravel drive of the stunning Zigbone Farm Retreat, I am struck by the properties’ beautiful rustic old-world charm & elegance. With its earth clay buildings, bold pops of color, and distressed wood accents, the venue has an almost french château ambience. 

I started the day finding Sarah relaxing outside enjoying the sunny weather talking with some of her wedding party. All of a sudden, a black and orange Oriole catches everyone’s attention. We all took this as a blessed foreshadowing of the amazing day to come. 

Walking into the bridal suite with Sarah, I immediately felt right at home meeting her amazing bridesmaids and bridal vendors. The warmth and intimacy between everyone in the room was quickly noticeable. Now, it is of course expected for the bride to be confident with her bridal party, but I also witnessed how close Sarah was to both her hair and makeup artist as well. These beautiful close-knit friendships were only the first of many to come.

Sarah + Adam designed their day to surround themselves with their beloved community of friends and family, extending that idea to include most of their wedding vendors! I watched these beautiful personal interactions continue throughout the entire day, between the bridal squad, officiant, DJ and even bar servers. These sweet and tender relationships were what made this day so incredibly intimate and special.

Sarah + Adam’s ceremony was a grand slam! Understanding the passion and importance softball plays in their lives their officiant gave an amazing personalized authentic ceremony. Filled with all the best softball quotes and sayings, making these two ball players’ dreams come true. The theme was carried perfectly into their reception space with a stadium ticket seating chart and home plate guest book. These details would make any retired ball-player squeal for joy!

Sarah + Adam, it was such an honor to be welcomed into your inner circle and trusted to capture this amazing new chapter of your life! The love you have for each other and devotion to your family and friends is inspiring and is a life experience I will never forget. You two have created such a powerful community and team. I am excited to see what this next season of life has in store for you two, and I know you’re going to knock it out of the park! I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images of your spectacular charming countryside wedding!
