Denny and Joy tied the knot at the gorgeous venue Pond View Farm in White Hall, Maryland. Before the ceremony, they shared letters with each from around a corner, so they never saw one another. They were so excited to get the day started, though.
A little while later under the shady willow trees, with Anna Grace Photography behind the lens, Denny and Joy exchanged tearful vows and special promises to one another. and it was a beautiful ceremony, indeed!
Pond View Farm is an excellent venue because the ceremony and reception take place at the same location! After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed cocktail hour and corn hole on the lawn. We had a blast taking the bride and groom portraits with the cattle in the background and on the dock of the lake. Denny and Joy have a zest for life and sweet love for each other. Here is their love story!
Denny and Joy met at a college party at ‘the wrestling house’ at George Mason University. It was Joy’s first weekend of college, and her lacrosse teammates decided to meet some other student-athletes. It was August 23, 2008, which just so happened to be Denny’s 19th birthday. As Denny was celebrating with his wrestling teammates, he locked eyes with Joy, invited her over for a drink with them, and the rest is history! They continued to run into each other at the field house, the weight room, study hall, or anywhere that a busy college student-athlete could be found. They began dating two weeks later and have been inseparable ever since.
Thanks for stopping by!
