I just adored Carolyn and Elliott right from the start. When they told me that they were both actors, both Irish, and that their wedding party was made up of lawyers and actors (what IS the correlation there?) who liked to party, I had a feeling it would be a fun wedding. Plus, their wedding would take place at one of my favorite venues, The Oaks in St. Michaels. I just had to be the one to document their day!
Over the winter I had been toying with the idea of painting frames and using them as props for the wedding party and guests. Since this was one of my first weddings of the season, and The Oaks just lends itself to this idea, I ran the idea by Carolyn and she was thrilled. I was equally thrilled to learn of her color scheme ~ kelly green, magenta, yellow and tangerine. Yum! I picked up these frames at various Goodwill stores (which started a new shopping obsession for my kids, with the help of the song, “Thrift Shop”) I just love how the color pops with the bridesmaids gray dresses and the weathered gray barn at the Oaks. (please don’t ever paint it!)
Here is what I managed to edit down from my and Arianne’s favorites. I know…definitely too many portraits of the bride, but she is just too stunning!
