Michelle & Jared | Maryland Farm Wedding from 2012

I’m honestly having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I second shot this wedding with Marcella Treybig all the way back in 2012. Especially since I think about this wedding all the time. Whenever anyone asks me about my “most memorable” wedding or the “coolest thing I’ve ever seen,” I always think of Michelle and Jared. Marcella finally told me I could blog it, and unlike all the other weddings I second-shot from years back, I actually wanted to post this one! Aaaaaaaand, at some point, I threw out all the images. Digital storage is cheap, people – don’t get rid of things just because you think you will never have a use for them again (oy).

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.

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.

Pisei & Alex | Cambodian wedding ceremony | Celebrations at the Bay | Rockville and Pasadena

Pisei and Alex rocked out two busy wedding days – one a traditional Cambodian ceremony held in Pisei’s family home and the other a boisterous outdoor bayside ceremony and reception at Celebrations at the Bay. They demonstrated remarkable going-with-the-flowness (one of my favorite traits) during all the commotions, making both days joyful, relaxed and personal. Pisei and Alex:

One of the best things about photographing weddings in DC is the remarkable variety and diversity of the events I witness – between venues and cultures and family traditions, more likely than not each wedding shows me something new. I had never seen any element of a traditional Cambodian wedding before. It was fun and a little crazy!

There are a number of different ceremonies that can all take place on the same day (as here). Pisei and Alex had four separate beautiful outfits to wear.
