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!

 

 

 

Haley-Jean and Steve’s Backyard Garden Wedding

 

To understand the love I have for photographing this garden wedding on the Patuxent in Southern Maryland, you have to understand a little bit about Steve and Haley-Jean. These two met on a blind date through a friend, they have stayed together through travels, and underway deployments. They were married in a church ceremony on the anniversary of both of their parents, June 28th. That’s right, Steve’s parents, Haley’s parents, and now Steve and Haley all share an anniversary. I went to Charleston to photograph, a couple whom all I knew about them was she was a lovely dancer, and Steve was a handsome officer in the Coast Guard. The two people I met are inspiring. Their determination, their passion for life, and their love for one another are a joy to be around. I love how they are both so family oriented, and I especially love, that I got to play with Kingston their rescue pup for photos twice. <3 I could go on and on about Haley and Steve’s wedding, starting with how her mom searched high and low for all the antique eclectic china patterns for probably a year, or how her mother made her veil, or her grandmother making the skirt for her walk down the aisle. Then there is also the fact that the venue is Steve’s family home, nestled beautifully in Southern Maryland right on the water. Did I mention their Mama Mia dance led by Haley and her 85 year old grandmother??  To cap it off we have an epic send off of fireworks and a boat departure. What an amazing night, what an amazing couple and family. Congratulations you two! I am so thrilled to share these photos, and these memories with you all.

    Kaitlyn and Adam’s Wedding at the Phillip Merrill Environmental Center!

    I met Kaitlyn when she was a bridesmaid at a wedding I was able to photograph of our mutual friend. I remember thinking, what a lovely bride she will be when I heard she was getting married. She has such a Grecian look about her, that is so complimented by her understated and classic taste. I love that she choose simple greens for her bouquet, and how they went perfectly with her invitations. Her dress with it’s gorgeous beaded back, and flowing lines further accentuated the elegant and classic look of her wedding. Kaitlyn, who is an environmentalist, and Adam choose to have their wedding at the Phillip Merrill Environmental Center in Annapolis. The day was perfect, the band amazing, and like most perfect days, it just flew by. I know they have some wonderful memories, and I am so excited to share these photos with them, to help relive the day! Congratulations you two!!

      Jenn and Trevor’s perfect Spring Wedding at Herrington on the Bay

      The stars aligned for Jenn and Trevor’s wedding the other week. I can say, we were almost hot, not having had any sign of spring until mid April. But it was perfect. Jenn and Trevor couldn’t have picked a better location than Herrington on the Bay, and I couldn’t have asked for a more lovely group of people to spend the day with. Jenn has such an eye for style. She is able to bring in the exquisite and pair it with simplicity, to really showcase the grandeur of the wedding details. Her dress is a work of art, her flowers perfectly compliment the the dress with soft shades of pink and white to not compete. One of my favorite things that people do for wedding parties, is have their closest people there by their side, regardless of gender. Trevor had is sister by his side, and I think that is absolutely the way it should be. Everything about the day was perfection, and I am sure much of that had to do with Jenn’s mix of attention to detail, and being able to go with the flow. I am so very glad these two found each other, it has been such a joy to get to know them. Thank you both for just rolling with the day, for doing a sparkler send off, and a bonfire, for have such great taste, and most importantly, for loving each other the way you do. I wish you both the best!!
