Sagamore Pendry | Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church

Featured Couple: Karson & Katie

Bradley Images was invited to photograph the beautiful union of Karson and Katie at the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church on October 14. This fun couple created a magical wedding day filled with family memories and special touches. Karson’s grandparents were also married in the same church on the same exact weekend, 63 years ago. Their steadfast love inspired Karson and Katie, who chose to incorporate the original sheet music from their wedding into the processional. 

The reception was held at the Sagamore Pendry Hotel, a gorgeous new venue in the heart of Baltimore. Katie and Karson had the privilege of being one of the first couples to host their reception in this premier location, a renovated and modernized 1914 building on Baltimore’s Historic Recreation Pier. Before the Sagamore Pendry Hotel opened its doors to the public, Karson and Katie toured the boutique hotel and refined their unique wedding vision. Without seeing the finished product, they booked their reception.

During the reception, Karson’s grandparents kept the dance floor alive late into the night with a special anniversary dance. Instead of having her bridesmaids and friends scramble for the bouquet, she gifted it to her new grandmother. The special touches didn’t stop there. Katie ordered a special groom’s cake for Karson that creatively showed off his love of Jamaica, Jimmy Buffet, Starbucks, his favorite Baltimore watering hole and his favorite sports teams including the Baltimore Ravens, the Baltimore Orioles and the Rider Broncs. 

We think you’ll agree that the Sagamore Pendry Hotel looks even better with a lovely couple like Karson and Katie in it, dancing the night away.
