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).

Jude & Mark | Danby Castle wedding | North Yorkshire, England

Before I start gushing, let me say a huge thank you to the amazing Kari Bellamy, who let me tag along at Jude and Mark’s wedding. If you’re a long-time follower of the blog, you might recall that I spent a good month in England and Belgium last year. As luck would have it, Kari needed a second photographer in that timeframe for a wedding in Yorkshire. In a castle. With an incredible couple. With a vintage tea party theme. Are you excited yet? Oh my god, this wedding. Also, it was in the English countryside and the heather was in bloom. Seriously, guys, this wedding.

These are the kinds of venues wedding photographers get to work in England. This is Danby Castle, in North Yorkshire. It’s the place where Catherine Parr moved after Henry VIII died. No, really.

Love Point at Kent Island | Eastern Shore wedding

I’m so pleased to share this beautiful wedding I second shot with Jessica Shepard late last year. The couple was so adorable and joyous and I loved their beachy decorations (and orange touches!). One quick note – before you fall in love with this venue (as I did), know that they have had some serious problems and are currently closed. Too bad – it was such a lovely place for these happy kids:

I don’t often go out to the Eastern Shore – not sure why, just don’t get that many folks asking about it (though I would love to do a beach wedding this year!). So it was really nice to be by the water. Here’s the view from the bride’s hotel suite:

Love Point at Kent Island really was a gorgeous venue. I had to stop the car on the drive in and take some photos.
