Kiersten & Patrick got married in the gazebo-on-the-lake at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, surrounded by smiling faces, adorable children and in super-rad matching, green, personalized Converse.

I met up with them at the Morrison House in Old Town to do some portraits around their ‘hood.

Ok check the green Converse. I wanted to get married in Converse and my husband vetoed it! Further: I believe I overheard Kiersten say her dress was from ModCloth, so get on that immediately.

Portraits round one accomplished, we hopped in our cars and rolled out to Meadowlark, where lots of people related to Kiersten and Patrick were waiting patiently, cameras ready.

Congratulations you guys!

Jennifer & Aric | Top of the Town wedding | Arlington

Jennifer and Aric had a swinging time (forgive me!) at their beautiful, purple wedding at Top of the Town in Arlington. So you know how in a lot of weddings there’s that one older couple that can really cut a rug and take over the dance floor and they’re totally awesome? Every couple at Jennifer and Aric’s wedding was like that, because these two are talented swing dancers. And there was Rubik’s Cube cake. J&A:

We started the day at Le Meridien in Arlington, which happens to have a big, lovely patio for first looks and family photos and things. Thanks, as always, to Julia for hanging with the boys.

Not gonna lie, Jennifer’s grandmother was a bit of a show-stealer.

Eliza & Erick | Baltimore Museum of Industry Wedding

I feel a little pressure to describe the awesomeness that is Eliza and Erick, but simultaneously feel I could never quite do their wedding justice with words. Fortunately, I took a gazillion images and I can just hit you with them. Like this:

Ok so, if you know anything about me and my work, you know I went freakin’ bananas over that airplane in the ceiling. See 80% of their reception photos below for further proof. Also excellent: this huge industrial sculpture thing. So the Baltimore Museum of Industry takes a huge leap over every other venue I’ve worked at to become my very favorite venue ever. It’s awesome. There are industrial things everywhere and we got to shoot in the galleries and, did I mention the airplane in the ceiling?
