Kaitlin and Eric had a spectacular wedding at The Antrim 1844, a historic mansion in Taneytown, Maryland. On this twenty-four-acre estate, they celebrated their love and commitment to each other in the presence of friends and family.
Kaitlin and Eric met at Otakon 2015 - a convention for anime and video games. They hung out at a cosplay meet up and made a bunch of friends. This led to a group chat where they talked and talked for a solid year. After some rocky times for both of them, Kaitlin went over to Eric’s house on a whim. According to Kaitlin, one of the selling points was when Eric lent her his sweatshirt, took really good care of her and showed her around his hometown for the entire weekend. The rest is history! They drove back and forth between Pennsylvania and Maryland each weekend for a couple of months before ending up in the same city.
The day started out with Kaitlin getting ready with her girls in the Boucher Room at The Antrim. The ladies thoroughly enjoyed their coffee and pastries as well as a balcony overlooking the grounds of the estate. There were tons of stories and giggles throughout the morning.
Getting ready was followed by a simple ceremony in the Secret Garden at The Antrim. It was close and intimate, full of love and support from both sides of the family. The ceremony was uniquely Kaitlin’s and Eric’s, with the bridal party walking down the aisle to “Concerning Hobbits” from The Lord of the Rings.
Kaitlin had a blast during their formal portraits, all set to the beautiful backdrop of the mansion grounds.
During the reception, the couple danced the night away. Kaitlin showed off her formal dance training as well as her amazing swing skills. There was tons of laughter and heartfelt stories during speeches and toasts. Overall the the day was a huge success.
Kaitlin and Eric - we wish you the very best in your life together!
