[Wedding] Rowie & Justin – M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD

As I mentioned in a previous post, Rowie and Justin hail from my old stomping grounds of Baltimore. And if there’s one thing we Baltimore folks take seriously, it’s our Ravens! So when Rowie and Justin announced they would be holding their reception there, I thought that was just tremendously fantastic. Truth be told, I’m not much of a sports fan; I’m a bit of a nerd when it comes to my channel surfing habits (Travel Channel anyone?). But the thought if shooting somewhere so iconic, grand and recognizable as M&T Bank Stadium, it just boggles the mind that you’re even there. So while I was soaking all of this, imagine the entire bridal party’s taking part in some overzealous horseplay from endzone to endzone :). But first things first, our morning started at the Marriott in the Inner Harbor, where Rowie and Justin got an early start to their day with the rest of the bridal party.
