Kristi and Chris ~ what a wonderful whirlwind experience! They found me only a few months before their wedding, and between our busy schedules and the two of them living apart between Bethesda and New York, we barely had time to squeeze in their engagement session. That day was a great introduction to Kristi & Chris, but only the tip of the iceberg. It was as if their true personalities, style, and passion for each other just exploded in my face on their wedding day! Again, eight hours: never enough time to capture so much love, joy & beauty, but Alison and I gave it our best shot! (pun intended)
Exquisite flowers by Eufloria.
I just loved Kristi’s color scheme of brilliant blues, purples and green.
Oh, the drama in the cottage…
We laughed till we cried, or was it cried till we laughed?
Regardless, thank goodness for Marti and her incredible make-up job…just look at these gorgeous eyes!
Great shots by Alison of the guys.
As always gorgeous light at one of our favorite venues, The Oaks Waterfront Inn!
Drew Vanlandingham of Vanlandingham Design Studio simply went over the top producing this wedding, and then jumping in to sing Ave Maria for the ceremony..too much!
Trying to capture the room during the cocktail hour was so overwhelming, and then we saw the full moon rising over the water and just HAD TO get this shot…all while the clock was ticking down to the intros. So stressful!
The Swedish Fish that kept me going during the many hours of editing…
DJ Jacob spinnin the tunes.
Ok, this is a first for me, and maybe Jacob and David (who is catching the spectacle on video for Blue Sky Films), too. Not only was the Chicken Dance on the playlist, but the Groom and Groomsmen requested it as their special song. Love you Kristi & Chris!!!
