Cailin & Ben | Black Horse Inn wedding | Warrenton, Virginia

Cailin and Ben were married on a stunning fall day at the picturesque Black Horse Inn in Warrenton, Virginia where there are, true to the name, actual black horses. These two pulled off a lovely celebration for their big, cheerful families. There were grandmothers tearing up and plenty of grandkids to hold their hands, beers straight out of the can, quality cigars, a rockin’ band and even a sky full of stars. Cailin and Ben:

Told you it was beautiful. Cailin and her ladies got ready in the main house.

While the boys spent some time in the cellar getting spiffy.

You all know I’m not much for dress shots but when I have a scene like this, I’m sort of compelled to use it. Also, Cailin just being straight beautiful.

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.

Margaret & Scott | DC courthouse wedding

Margaret and Scott are crazy daredevil rule-breaking bad-asses. They drink champagne in public on national park property. On this particular day, they got hitched beforehand.

I’m a big fan of the new marriage ceremony room. It’s more symmetrical than the other one. Margaret and Scott scored the good one.

I don’t know them very well, but I’m pretty sure these two people are in love.

We paused on the Mall for celebratory drinks.
