courtney + drew: married!

barefoot on a summer night — nothin’ new is sweeter than with you.

courtney + drew :: married! house of sweden — washington, dc

* * * * *

holy roly, me, oh my, you’re the apple of my eye
girl, i’ve never loved one like you

man, oh man, you’re my best friend, i scream it to the nothingness
there ain’t nothin’ that i need

well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie, chocolate candy, jesus christ
there ain’t nothin’ please me more than you

ahh, home
let me come home
home is wherever i’m with you

i’ve always thought that the song people select for their first dance is a kind of window into their relationship — it says a lot about who they are as a couple, what’s important to them, and how they see love, life and each other. courtney + drew danced to home, by edward sharp & the magnetic zeros, and i have to say i haven’t been so moved by a song in very a long time. the lyrics are so honest and meaningful and the tune itself is absolutely irresistible — i heard it for the first time that night and now i listen to it at least once a day (along with the entire album) because it’s simply beautiful.

courtney + drew embody the kind of love that sharp sings about —  a solid, true connection to your best friend, a love that puts you at peace and at home no matter where you are. and, really, that’s pretty amazing, just like courtney + drew. i can’t even express how lucky i feel to have been part of their day, witnessing their love, capturing their laughter, and getting to see them surrounded by their family + friends.

the absolutely fabulous house of sweden in dc was the ideal setting for such a fabulous affair. rooftop cocktails overlooking the georgetown waterfront at sunset kicked off the festivities, which continued through the night with fantastic toasts, amazing food, great music, and a little dancing!

kristi + jon: married!

love + laughter on the chesapeake bay.

kristi + jon are married!

when it comes to love + laughter, kristi + jon take the cake! this absolutely exuberant couple tied the knot two weeks ago at the chesapeake bay beach club in stevensville, md. i’ve been anticipating this day since i first photographed them almost a year ago at an amazing farm on gibson island – by far one of the most fun + memorable engagement sessions ever! (check it out here!) it’s impossible to explain the kind of energy that this couple effortlessly radiates – everything about them is wonderful and together they are a force unlike any other! i knew their wedding would be spectacular – and the entire day was thrilling. watching kristi + jon celebrate together with their awesome family + friends was pure joy. the dance floor was completely off the chain and i had the time of my life. there wasn’t a moment when kristi + jon weren’t smiling, laughing or kissing and i’m so excited to share the images from this spectacular lovefest!

kristi + jon: i think the world of you both. your love, passion and excitement is inspiring. simply put, you are the reason i do what i do. thank you for welcoming me into your lives – i can’t wait to follow your journey and document every milestone along the way!

krystin + gill: married!

the lights that shine.

krystin + gill are married!

everything about their wedding day was simply gorgeous – i’m so thrilled that i was there to capture it all! from the amazing venues – an intimate garden ceremony on the terrace at the tabard inn, followed by a fabulous reception at the darlington house – to the tiniest details – a vibrant hot pink + damask theme paired with orchids + candles galore! – it was pure eye candy! krystin’s looked absolutely stunning in her *amazing* dress and i was simply in awe of her gorgeous shoes, veil, and jewelry – i love love love her style! gill was as handsome and jovial as ever – head over heels in love with his bride! these two absolutely radiate when they are together. i can’t begin to describe how amazing it is to be witness to such obvious and limitless love – krystin + gill totally blew me away, and from the moment they emailed me to the very end of their celebration i never took one minute for granted in their presence. gill’s gentlemanly charm + krystin’s effortless grace make them one of the most enchanting couples i’ve ever known and their quiet romance is simply beautiful. they have truly found their bliss in each other and i am so happy and excited for them!

krystin + gill: you are an inspiration! i am honored to have documented your amazing love and i know it will continue to grow and carry you through a lifetime of happiness together!

rachel + scott :: just married!

wedding day, take II.

i *loved* seeing rachel + scott again a few weeks ago for a quick “just married” session in dupont circle! their wedding day was absolutely fabulous {see it here!} but we didn’t get a chance to hit the streets of the city like they had hoped, so we scheduled a fun shoot around their favorite neighborhood! rachel was thrilled to wear her gorgeous wedding dress again and scott looked as sharp as ever in his cashmere suit – love this couple!
