happy anniversary robert+alena :: greensboro wedding photographer

I am so happy to wish Alena and Robert a very happy first wedding anniversary today! Their beautiful Greensboro wedding was full of coral details, and her shoes are still one of my all-time favorites. Check out the memories from their day, put together by the fabulous planning mastermind at Behind the Scenes, Inc., here.

Wishing the two of you all the best and many, many, many more years of marital bliss!

adam+lily :: married :: mississippi wedding photographer

I'll be completely honest and tell you folks that I was sitting in front of my computer crying like a mad woman today as I was selecting images to include in this blog, and I DIDN'T EVEN SHED A TEAR AT THE WEDDING
Adam is one of my dearest friends, and I am so happy that he chose Lily to be his wife. Their wedding was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I've ever had the honor of attending... it was filled with so much joy, love, and sincere happiness for this sweet couple, and they deserve every bit of it. Y'all know that I like to talk about my weddings, but I've been informed by Adam to just let the pictures do the talking for the sake of him getting to see them before they leave for the honeymoon, so without further ado...
Lily's wedding band included sapphires from a ring her mom gave her as a child, and Adam's ring was made from his mother's wedding band. I know for certain that Ms. Cyndi is smiling down on
you two and is so proud of the amazing husband you are and will be.
I absolutely loved Lily's garter made from pieces of her mother and her grandmother's wedding dresses...
Y'all know I love, love, love a First Look and this one certainly didn't dissapoint. Adam+Lily chose to see each other for the first time on the steps of Adam's elementary school alma mater, St. John's Day School.
Their niece, Anne, had to be the most adorable flower girl of all time... she danced and twirled her way down the aisle as she lined it with flowers.

Adam+Lily :: Thank y'all so much for being such AMAZING friends and allowing us to be part of your beautiful wedding day! We are so blessed to have you two in our lives, and we wish you all the best that marriage and a life together have to offer! Have a great time in Jamaica, and enjoy a fruity drink with an umbrella for me!

matt+francesca :: married :: greater dc area wedding photographer

When it came to their wedding, Matt, one of Josh's friends from Penn State, and Francesca, his lovely bride, threw tradition to the wind and decided to make their celebration all about having fun. Earlier this year, they eloped to Vegas (is it still eloping if everyone knows your plans??) and decided to throw a party back home in the outskirts of Washington DC with all of their friends and family when they returned. We were honored that they asked us to document last weekend's celebration with just a few photos of the two of them and their families and closest friends, and especially excited that since the event itself wasn't being photographed, we got the night off to enjoy the party!

I'm not usually big on ice sculptures, but this one was pretty awesome... bringing a little bit of Vegas to the East Coast. Their vow renewal and reception was held at the fabulous Piedmont Club in Haymarket, Virginia, and the beautiful grounds (I love a good golf course) and dramatic storm clouds made for some perfect photos of the newlyweds...

Matt+Fran :: Thank you for inviting us to help you celebrate your wedding! We had such a great time, and we wish you many, many decades of happiness together!
