Sylvanside Farm Wedding: Jackie + Jon-Erik

2020 was the year full of surprises for everyone. Some bad and some very unwelcome surprises. But let it be known, there were some good things that came out of this year.

Married: Rachel + Ramesh

Even though most of my weddings have been postponed to later in the year or next year, I’m really loving these micro weddings. I selfishly love them because I get more time with just the bride and groom. But I am still so missing the big celebrations and can’t wait to get back to them. […]

Married: Dana + Mark

Dana and Mark were married this day last year and it was one of the most joyous days…and HOT! I remember it being so hot and humid. Dana looked like a legit Princess! The train on her dress was just stunning. They were married at a Catholic Church in Washington, DC with their reception being […]

Oh, Kasey + Ben. I just love them! I love their sweet relationship. I love how thoughtful Ben is (you guys! He gave her the sweetest gift for their wedding!) and I love that they met at camp years ago as counselors and that they are both teachers. They had the sweetest garden wedding at […]

Married: Laura + Mike, Decatur House

Laura walked down the aisle to “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles. And what a fitting song that was for Laura, for their wedding day, and just for the entire theme of their wedding. Laura + Mike were married on Saturday at the Decatur House in DC right next to the White House. It […]

Engaged: Paisley + Amir, Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin are always a popular spot. Like, it gets crazy. If you think tourists in the middle of the day are bad around the basin…try going at sunrise. All the photogs and all the couples are there. And rightfully so! It’s stunning and it’s the best time to go to […]
