She said they only looked at it as a joke in the beginning. Because it was funny to think that Kerri and Walker would get married at a place called Walker’s Overlook in Walkersville MD. But they fell in love with its charm and beautiful grounds, and it ended up being the perfect place for them. And so the wedding planning began.
Before all that could happen though, there had to be a proposal. Kerri got two in fact. Technically Walker proposed casually one night in their apartment, but exactly one year later he proposed again. This time with flowers, dinner, and a ring presented on bended knee. Kerri didn’t hesitate to say yes, but neither of those times were what she remembers most as the romantic moment that they agreed to spend their lives together.
The real moment that Kerri treasures was well before either proposal. It came after a cousin’s wedding they were attending. They had only been dating for six months, but they were in love and Kerri knew that Walker was the man she had been waiting for. They had an amazing night together dancing and celebrating. At the end of the night Walker snuggled up and whispered, “I want to spend the rest of my life with you” and Kerri said, “Me too, with you.” That’s the moment she knew they would get married.
And of course they did! And I had the pleasure of documenting it all for them, so enjoy highlights from Kerri and Walker‘s wedding Walker’s Overlook!
Special thanks the team that helped make the day great!
