Ronee & Bill | Arts Club of Washington, DC wedding

Ronee and Bill feel things. You can tell because you can see that shiz plain as day on their faces. Love, joy, admiration, astonishment. They tied the knot at the Arts Club of Washington in a ceremony that can only be described as a production. They have scads of theater friends and so their semi-DIY wedding was a complete triumph of execution, design and performance. And it was fun, too. Ronee and Bill:

We started the day right next door at the Hotel Lombardy.

Then hopped over one so these two lovebirds could say hello. (Also, pause – look at Ronee’s ridiculously pretty dress!)

In the car, on the way to Constitution Gardens – one of my favorite spots to get greenery and water and a quick DC scene without having to travel far.

Yes, this is the National Mall.

Meagan & Joseph | DC courthouse wedding photography | Washington, D.C.

Meagan and Joseph came all the way from Alabama to tie the knot in our nation’s capital. It was a secret wedding for a few days, so they partied it up that weekend with friends unawares. Very romantic. Also, Meagan really knows how to pick a dress.

The DC Courthouse was the scene for our heroes’ big moment.

Then we scooted down to the National Mall for some portrait action. Poor Meagan broke her pinkie toe a little previously, so she had to wear a brace thing.

But we switched it out quickly. My apologies for the stress, pinkie toe!

That dress really did twirl in the most fantastic way.

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.
