It happens all the time in Hallmark movies — a cute couple meets in a quaint town with decorations for the season and, of course, love in the air. The romantic scene is the perfect setting for a life of bliss.
That’s what we found at Emily Yeatman’s bakery, Les Petits Bisous. Our couple, Chris & Kateri Brohawn, gave us that picturesque setting just two blocks from the Susquehanna River.
In May 2019, Emily left her career as an English teacher to pursue her dream of baking. Her specialty? Macarons, which are sweet meringue-based confections made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond meal and food coloring.
“When you take a bite it pops in your mouth and as you chew, the flavors come alive,” Emily said.
Emily welcomed us in with open arms and our team was able to bond with the assembled team, which included Liz Gondeck on hair and makeup. She is the co-owner of Revelry Hair Studio in Bel Air.
Liz is no stranger to this world, as she has been in salons since she was 14. Chris and Kateri are also no strangers to their craft.
In 2013, Chris started RAR Brewing with his high school buddy, JT Merryweather, in Cambridge. Kateri joined the staff as a bartender in 2015 and not long after that, they began dating. On Sept. 24, 2022, on a friend’s property in Cambridge, the two were officially wed.
This was our most unique cover shoot, as we focused on more than one location. From Le Petits Bisous in downtown Havre de Grace to the Liriodendron Mansion in Bel Air, we hopefully have brought you some of the best that Harford County has to offer.
