New Mexican Styled King Family Vineyards WeddingANDREW + EMILIA

I love shooting in Charlottesville, especially if it’s a New Mexican Styled King Family Vineyards Wedding.

Andrew and Emilia chose the beautiful Charlottesville area for friends and family from around the country to enjoy.  They wanted to incorporate Emilia’s New Mexican heritage into the style of the wedding and did so by bringing in Floriography from Albuquerque to collaborate with Fete Weddings out of Richmond.  Florals infused with cactuses, bright desert flowers and chili peppers somehow merged perfectly with wine barrels, horses and traditional Virginia architecture.  My favorite element was a succulent cactus that adorned the dessert table.   After the ceremony, a mariachi band lured guests to the patio to enjoy cocktails and traditional southern Virginia fare by BBQ Exchange.  One of my favorite restaurants to visit while on my way to Charlottesville and a must visit for any BBQ enthusiast.  It was a beautiful October evening that many won’t soon forget.

Historic London Town and Gardens Wedding

I’m so happy to finally show Historic London Town and Gardens wedding in Annapolis from last year.  London Town is a historic venue right on the water with old buildings, hidden trails and sprawling oak trees.  Its perfect for the romantic garden wedding.  Gorgeous florals with my favorite blush toned dahlias were created by The Floral Studio and chicken and waffles were served for dinner by  Kens Creative Kitchen. The weather was absolutely perfect and the day couldn’t have been more chill.

Multicultural Washington DC Wedding at Josephine Butler Parks CenterSOHIE + KOS

Sohie and Kos were my first wedding of the season and made for such a great start to the year.  They had a beautiful multicultural wedding that blended their Greek and Asian heritages. Their ceremony was at St. Sophia  in DC and then they went on to have their reception at Josephine Butler Parks Center.  The weather could not have been any more perfect for early March and we were able to do all of their portraits at Meridian Hill Park. There was some amazing traditional Greek dancing going on and lots of shots were taken, frolicking through the streets, and posing with suitcases.  What started of as a quiet and easy going morning, changed when the bridal party all got together.  They were a really great group of friends with so much energy and love!

Winter Wedding Inspiration

Last winter I had the privilege to work with some amazing vendors on a winter wedding inspirational shoot set in the Virginia countryside.   Rixey Manor made for the perfect backdrop for this dark and romantic shoot that I had been pondering over with designer Rebecca of A Daily Something.  Hair and makeup were expertly done by Julie of Jewel Hair Design and Jennifer of Phenomenal Faces.  As always, I loved working with Laura of Loda Floral Design, she was able to put together the most beautiful bouquets and centerpieces.  Calligraphy was by Joie de Vivre and the dress was Gossamer, and ribbon by Silk and Willow.  The most amazing cake was designed and made by Macarena at Dulce Custom Cakes.   These ladies are some of the best in the business and I value their friendships so much.

You can now view this shoot on the blog Artfully Wed.

Virginia Backyard Wedding

Vasilia and Joe. What can I say?

They are kind and genuine and definitely bad ass.  They threw a Virginia backyard wedding with some serious style and an equally creative engagement session that has been my most unique to date.  I knew from our first meeting that they were the perfect fit.  When brainstorming what they wanted their wedding to be like, they basically came up with the same key words and knew that it was meant to be. I love how they followed their gut instinct and went with it.  Guests showed up in full 1920s attire and rocked it. They had BBQ, lawn games, some serious baklava, and a pull down projector for movies to finish off.
