Heather & Pedro | Tea Barn at Fair Hill wedding | Elkton, Maryland

Heather and Pedro were married at the lovely Tea Barn at Fair Hill way on up in Elkton, Maryland on a windy, clear fall day. They put so much care into every little detail – from tiny folded map airplanes to be used as “rice” after the ceremony to a huge candy table with scads of delicacies to a bouncy-ball paradise for the little guys. It was a good day.

We started the day at the Comfort Suites in Elkton, Maryland.

Heather’s daughter was on hand for jokes and hugs.

We all got in our cars and scooted over to the Tea Barn, where Heather and Pedro were married under the big tree.

Apparently the park was also doing a pumpkin patch nearby, but not nearby enough. We satisfied ourselves with barns and the one tree that was turning colors for fall.

Joe & Francis | DC courthouse wedding | 701 Restaurant | Washington

Joe and Francis were married last week at the DC courthouse with scads of jubilant friends and family. These two decided to tie the knot shortly before leaving on vacation and planned the whole thing abroad, from a cruise ship. In something like a week and a half. If they could pull that off, marriage should be a piece of cake.

You remember that day last week it dumped rain? That was Francis and Joe’s wedding day. But we ducked under some columns and had some fun.

And then a girl poked her head out of the door there and asked us if we wanted to go to the roof and do some photos on the patio! Um, yes please! DC people are so nice to just-married couples.

Quick portrait shoot a wrap, we scooted over to 701 Restaurant for a lovely cocktails-and-hors d’oeuvres reception.

Cailin & Ben | Black Horse Inn wedding | Warrenton, Virginia

Cailin and Ben were married on a stunning fall day at the picturesque Black Horse Inn in Warrenton, Virginia where there are, true to the name, actual black horses. These two pulled off a lovely celebration for their big, cheerful families. There were grandmothers tearing up and plenty of grandkids to hold their hands, beers straight out of the can, quality cigars, a rockin’ band and even a sky full of stars. Cailin and Ben:

Told you it was beautiful. Cailin and her ladies got ready in the main house.

While the boys spent some time in the cellar getting spiffy.

You all know I’m not much for dress shots but when I have a scene like this, I’m sort of compelled to use it. Also, Cailin just being straight beautiful.
