Upon writing this post, I realized that this wedding needs to be blogged, put on my website and posted to FB, as this was one of my best nights/weekends ever. Why? Well first, it was my second wedding with the Baylor family. And I LOVE the Baylor family. Which is good, since they love me too. Second, I worked this wedding weekend (in the mountains of Orkney Springs, Virginia – so gorgeous) with my husband, which was super fun. Third, the venue, Shrine Mont, offered the most awesome “cafeteria” meals for our breakfasts and lunches. And it always comes back to the food for me, right? Also, can we talk about the awesome bouquet here by Melissa Riley of Countrypolitan Mercantile?

Jessica and Joe are a super sweet couple, who hosted their wedding in Alexandria, Virginia. They had their ceremony at the historic Carlyle House, and then led a second line parade to their reception at nearby (and very popular) restaurant Virtue Feed and Grain. Although it was a dreary and rainy day, everyone was in great spirits and so happy to celebrate with this couple. I hope you enjoy this great video by Ryan Geldermann.
I’m so thrilled to wish Pippa and Brian an very happy SECOND anniversary today! I am so lucky, I am working with Pippa’s sister and her fiance for their wedding this coming April, I can’t wait to celebrate with this family again!
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!
Melissa and Jeff had a beautiful Friday night wedding ceremony overlooking the water at Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, followed by a reception with one of the best menus I’ve seen. It was such a fun celebration! Photo by Paired Images.
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.
