This kid slays me. My best friends’ daughter, Scarlett, turns 3 today. Her party is on Saturday and I’ll be posting those photos as soon as I can. For her first birthday we did a Row Row Row Your Boat theme. Her second birthday was Pop on Over for Bubbles & Brunch. Her third birthday theme, Little Stinker, is the best one yet.

Oh this adorable couple! Firefighters. Chicken owners. All around awesome people. Sarah and Charles got hitched at Riverside on the Potomac, with photos captured by Kristi Odom, flowers by Lynnvale Studios and catering by Purple Onion Catering. I can’t wait to share more of these photos with you, as I am particularly proud of this one, it was so personalized and pretty!

Debi Parker Photography - Bellwether Events - Strathmore Mansion - wedding

Bellwether Events had a second wedding on June 15th last year, with the delightful Tatiana and Steve. Married at Georgetown Prep, they celebrated across the street at Strathmore Mansion. I adored their palette of shades of oranges and greens, with natural and rustic elements. They did a great job personalizing the details of their wedding. Bouquet by Elegance & Simplicity.

Bellwether Events had a lot of weddings last June, so we are celebrating a lot of First Anniversaries this June! Laura and Pat had a fun, fresh, preppy wedding at 8th and I SE at the Marine Barracks. They also had some of the best first look photos I’ve ever seen. But I’ll save those for another post. For now, I wish these two the best day ever!

Caroline and Darren had one of the coolest weddings I’ve done yet. I really loved their color palette and the modern, typographical vision they had for their day. And putting a clear top tent with string lights in the courtyard of the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria was so fun. Sam Hurd created amazing photos of their wedding.

Happy Anniversary Jessica & Jim
