A Fashionable Wedding at Chase Court & The Brass Elephant

July 13, 2009

Danielle and Donny were married at Chase Court on 5/29/09 with the reception following at The Brass Elephant.

This wedding was a bit different in several ways. It was on a Friday, (not that unusual) and it was a smaller event in that there were only forty guests in attendance. I covered the event myself without assistance.

Danielle is drop-dead gorgeous and the camera loves her – as evidenced  by the images I brought back.

These images of Danielle getting ready and her portraits were created in the “Bride’s Room” which David, the proprietor of Chase Court, has imbued with his great taste and stunning color scheme for a perfect ‘set’ to work in.





The stone/wood work, architecture, landscaped pathways and patina of age at Chase Court, a former rectory of a grand old Baltimore church, also gave me a great background to highlight Danielle’s beauty.



The ceremony started off outside but quickly moved inside as the rain began to come down. We didn’t miss a beat and everyone treated the scene change with great humor and a fun departure from the typical.



The happy couple were photographed indoors. Not a problem.



The Brass Elephant, whose reputation for great food and service is unsurpassed, was the location for the small and intimate gathering that followed the wedding. Everyone was seated at a long , single table which enhanced the sense of family and closeness.


I like this image because it is very photojournalistic, completely spontaneous, and just ‘happened’. Of course I went outside intuitively thinking that a great shot just might present itself. It did.

Chase Court, a great little venue in the heart of the city. David Egan has lovingly added his vision to this former rectory, transforming it into a supremely romantic and architectural gem for weddings and receptions.

Elizabeth or ‘EJ’ as her friends called her, was a woman who knew what she wanted and put her personality and creativity into all aspects of the wedding. She even designed her own bouquet!

An actress and vocalist, EJ was very much at ease in front of the camera, and you can see the results below.
