Patty and Josh got married at St. Patrick’s and celebrated at the Newseum. It was a gorgeous September day – a touch windy but better than the alternative.  Josh and I had a special moment before the ceremony while he anxiously waited to see Patty, so this photo really encapsulates the day for me – all the happy emotion on Josh’s face, as captured by Brian Tropiano.

Happy FIRST Anniversary Mary Beth and Chris!!

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?

Real Alexandria Virginia Wedding

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.

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.
