Amber & Chris | Alexandria backyard wedding | Virginia

Amber and Chris were married in a very intimate ceremony in a family back yard in Alexandria. No muss, no fuss, just a whole lot of good times. And one very excited dog. Furthermore, we all survived the potential time-space collapse of having two Ambers at one small wedding.

Amber’s grandmother phoned in via iPad.

The canine friend was a little too excitable to take part in the ceremony, but he did fine for portraits.

Rocking the suburbs, as it were.

Mengci & Fan | Fairfax Courthouse wedding | Virginia

Mengci and Fan took me to a new courthouse : Fairfax. They’re very serious about the no-camera policy (except the ones on our phones – those are cool) but they more than make up for it with their choice of outdoor location – you can get married right in their beautiful, flower-filled courtyard! So that’s what Mengci and Fan did, obviously, spurning the ever-ready conference-room action. An enormous troupe of friends joined them for their nuptials, in-between classes.

Right next door to the modern thing is the historic courthouse with all manner of lovely arches to play with.

And we hopped over to a lovely little park nearby for some woodsy action. Out there in the boonies, you can do that – the woods are literally all around.

I got like 10 mosquito bites in the course of six minutes.

Holly & Gene | Mt. Vernon Place United Methodist Church wedding | Washington, DC

Holly and Gene were married right in the heart of downtown DC at the Mt. Vernon Place United Methodist Church last week, surrounded by their very nearest and dearest. These cool cats have been all over the world together but brought it on home to DC for an intimate, personal wedding with three very lovely young ladies as attendants. Holly and Gene:

I was super-digging Holly’s subtle floral crown.

The church is right on Mt. Vernon square, so we took a quick jaunt across the street for photos with DC’s beautiful public library.
