Rikki and Cletus: Wedding Perfection

 

There are some weddings that are just absolutely beyond. Beyond perfect, beyond epic. They will live forever in the hearts and memories of the guests, going down as one of the greatest nights of all time. Rikki and Cletus are not just beautiful people, (and they are) they are warm, endearing, and passionate. Rikki has an amazing gift of making whoever she is speaking with feel as they are the most important person at that moment. She is disarming, and you are instant best friends. I love this about her. These two are a wonderful blend of laid back and visionary. When I saw all the bridesmaids in white and with beautiful white bouquets, my heart was full. And when Rikki stepped out in her classic off the shoulder dress, I was in photography heaven. Herrington was perfection, with its gorgeous gardens and bay views. Rikki made all of the Challah  and all the cookies herself. Oh, and did I mention that Alicia Keys personally gave a video wishing these two a wonderful love and life together? I mean, how does that happen?! And the dancing. I can’t even with the dancing. You’ll just have to see. From manly chests to backflips, to one epic horah. I just photographed everything I possibly could, because it was going on. It was a night to remember. Congratulations to the both of you! Your life is full of so much love already! I can’t wait to see all the joy you will have together!

 

 

 

A Bridal Shower Tea Party in Wonderland

 

This post is a special because we are celebrating my very best friend’s little sister. Her Wonderland bridal shower was decorated with tea sets, soft purples and pinks, and beautifully set in the garden of one her dear friends and bridesmaid. Guests wore fasteners (the little hats. I had no idea either. ) and floral dresses. A harp played; there was even flowers frozen in the ice cubes, there were babies everywhere, and puppies licked plates that had been left unattended. It was lovely, and this beautiful bride was celebrated as the queen she is. I am so thrilled for Alyssa and wish her so much love, happiness, and adventure. Knowing her, it’s exactly what she’ll get. <3

    A Surprise Sun for Lindsay and Jack’s Silver Swan Wedding

    Lindsay and I toiled over the forecast a bit before her and Jack’s wedding this last weekend in October. Torrential downpours, howling winds, and bitter cold temperatures seemed to loom in the foreground. Yet, the day of their wedding, there was no rain, and while freezing, yes, so very cold, their whole bridal party were troopers and managed to transport themselves mentally to warmer climates and their happy place while we took a few photographs outside. I love the fall colors we were able to capture at Silver Swan. Surrounded by water on both sides, their are few places on the Chesapeake that are as stunning. I am so glad that Jack pursued this girl, for like, ever. Funny how, he just knew from the beginning that she was the one for him. Funny too, that it took Lindsay a little longer to get there, but it all worked out in the end. Thank you both for allowing me to capture your day, for rolling with the wind and the veil casualty we had, the turning blue, and thank you Jack for not jumping into save said veil. We like you better without Pneumonia. Much love and happiness to you both!! PS Sorry, not sorry there are so many of your niece and nephew in this post. <3

      Doughnuts, Dancing, and Tropical Paradise at Herrington on the Bay

      Can we all just take a moment and awe over Kate’s dress. The lace, the sleeves, the bodice. From head to toe, Katelyn is a radiant princess. And I love that she met her Charming in middle school, that years later here they are. As her maid of honor said in her speech, “It has always been you Zach”. I am over the moon for these two, and the celebration they were able to have at Herrington on the Bay. Their passion for one another, for life, and their family is so evident, and I am so blessed to have been there to share in their wedding with them. Congratulations to the both of you! I wish you so much love and happiness!

        What struck me most about Lexie and Marin when I met them was how absolutely in tune they were to one another, and compassionate. They are so very aware of the other, and what they were thinking. Maybe that is what happens when you spend 7 years or so with the person you love. You just grow and grow with one another, making each other better, refining one another. I love how they both are gentle and strong, how they are easy going yet planners. Lexie wanted bright colors, and the bridesmaids each had their own personal touch in choosing their dresses. And I love how even with the array of color in the bridesmaids dresses, Lexie pulled it all together, finding the perfect bow tie and jacket for the men.They chose to get married at St John’s College in Annapolis where they met. Lexie got ready with her college friends in their old dorm rooms. What a way for to really celebrate the journey you have been on with your dearest friends and your soon to be hubby and wife. I love how family and friends came from near and far (Far being Croatia!- Side note- This was even while Croatia was currently winning their game during the World Cup. What dedication!) These two have obviously made an impact with those around them, and I am so happy for the two of them as they continue their journey together as husband and wife. Congratulations to you both!!
