Nike & Blake | Kittamaqundi Community Church at Oliver’s Carriage House | Columbia, MD

When I write these intros, I always try – in case you haven’t noticed – to think of three things to describe the wedding. But I don’t feel like Nike and Blake’s wedding at the Kittamaqundi Community Church at historic Oliver’s Carriage House needs three, just one: JOY. These two and their families threw every last bit of their joy into this wedding – dancing like they’d absolutely lost their minds, shedding a couple tears of happiness and gratitude, doling out hugs by the poundful. It was my great pleasure to be there and be a tiny part of the day.

We started at the Doubletree Columbia, which has some fun art for playing with.

Did you know that wedding certificates include a family planning guide in Columbia? Helpful!

Julie & Brandon | Columbia Country Club wedding | Chevy Chase, Maryland

Julie and Brandon beat out threats of rain to have an elegant but boisterous wedding at Columbia Country Club. These two held a “small” ceremony with their enormous families, then invited all the folks to come have dinner and dancing and plenty of laughs. Plus, there were more cousins than you can shake a stick at. Julie and Brandon:

This, folks, is the face of a man who wants to be married.

We stole off for a few photos around the grounds, with the repeated admonition not to get in the way of the golfers. Those golfers mean serious business!

The kids’ table was deserted by mid-meal. I found them in the cool-people area getting into trouble.

Jennifer & Nhan | Woodend Sanctuary wedding photography | Silver Spring, Maryland

Jennifer and Nhan have been together for more than twenty years, so at their beautiful Woodend Sanctuary wedding, there was no hint of anxiety or uncertainty about the future – these two have been in it to win it for a long time. I mostly couldn’t even tell whose family was whose – at this point, they’re all just family. These two gathered together a whole bunch of my favorite vendors in the area – Lula Mae events, Woodend, and Main Event Caterers for a fun, emotional, and lively day:

Jennifer skipped all the hooplah of a bunch of bridesmaids or other ladies up in her getting-ready space. Instead she put on her dress alone (plus me). It was really elegant and peaceful.

Then we brought in her man.
