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!

 

 

 

Blue Valley Winery Wedding

So I am pretty certain that Amanda and I are cousins through Grandma’s sisters mother’s cousins side thrice removed through marriage. And I am so happy she found me that way! Amanda and Lee had the most picture perfect vista to enjoy for their wedding in early spring. The mountains in the Shenandoah Valley area are so majestic and peaceful. The day was cool and a little over cast. And the company was absolutely wonderful! After all, I am sure I am related to maybe half of them you know. 😉 Amanda was stunning in her ball gown wedding dress, and the soft purples were a wonderful accent color. I love especially her comfortable foot wear choice, and that when the wind took her veil, she just rolled with it. Amanda and Lee, I hope the very best for you both, and wish you many car ride sing alongs, snuggles on the couch, and just many wonderful years together. Congratulations to you both!

    Brunch Wedding at Grey Rock

    Ever met one of those people that as soon as you see them you have a big smile on your face? That no matter what your mood, they just resonate so much joy that you can’t help but share in it? This is Kimmy. She is like a smiling firecracker, full of energy and love. We photographed their engagement photos at the state fair, where she and King were up for any hair raising ride I requested. Their wedding was so personal and extra special since they were married in the chapel at Kimmy’s school McDonogh. Reception followed at Grey Rock Mansion just down the road, where guests were greeted with the Macarena ( King allowed her one line dancing song, and she specifically told me pre-contract signing that this song would be played.) We had brunch (my favorite wedding meal, and really any meal), and such a perfect day, that if she had a direct line to God, the day couldn’t have been more perfect. Wishing you to the very best!

     

    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

      Love and Forever and Sotterley Plantation

      I am pretty sure Hannah and Joey have been together for forever. They have celebrated so many firsts together, and this beautiful September day was an especially wonderful first. They celebrated a first kiss, a first dance, a first in rockin parties with their friends and families as husband and wife.  My favorite thing about Hannah is her ability to roll with life. From broken zippers, to marching in fields of tall grass, to splashing champagne all over, well my camera. This girl is just up for anything, and able to keep her cool to boot. Joey honestly, is the same way. I don’t know if these two could compliment each other any better. I am so happy I was able to share in their Southern Maryland wedding at SotterleyPlantation. From water views, to glorious gardens, yard games, a rustic barn, and singing with a microphone, this wedding was a blast and absolute perfection! Congratulations to you both! I couldn’t be happier for you!!
