We knew Kate and Harrison’s wedding was going to be over the top, in a good way. With a little help from Contessa Flowers and caterer Ken Upton, Kate’s mom, Kay, created a lavish event filled with beauty which blended perfectly with a little Southern charm from Harrison’s family and friends. (Ken even catered Kay’s own wedding years ago!)
Once again, our challenge was lots of eye candy and so many great moments, but so little time to capture it all.

Kate was digging the sofa in the parlor before the ceremony.
Harrison had some quiet time before the ceremony to go over his vows.
Calvary United Methodist Church in Annapolis was so bright! Yay!
Mint juleps on a hot, summer day … what could be more refreshing after a photo shoot?
It was Kate’s idea to have the girls toss up their bouquets and catch them. We love it!
David’s angle – they really got some height on those bouquets!
We love, love, love the architecture at St. John’s!

We were torn between photographing the food and just digging in!
Ken really outdid himself with his Southern classics, and a new one with a Chesapeake Bay flair: crabcakes on fried green tomatoes!
Wedding guests admired my work from Kate and Harrison’s engagement session, and her sister Jen’s work designing the guestbook! Gotta love it!
We loved how the evening was a free flowing party with impromptu speeches and gatherings. It kept us on our toes!
Harrison’s best friend, and one of his best men, gave a super toast, complete with cheap French wine from a trip they took together!
The band, Horizon, rocked the house with a kickin’ horn section!
… although this guy thought it was a little loud!
We can only guess what this dance is called …
