Emily and Darren have proved that two rivals can come together for true love, a hokie and a cavalier! Emily graduated from Virginia Tech and Darren from the University of Virginia and it was afterwards near the city of Washington, D.C. that they met. These two both love eating and trying out new restaurants is one of their favorite things to do. As I write this, they are eating their way through Hawaii! For the proposal, Darren took Emily to the Jefferson Memorial and asked her to marry him on the steps so this was a spot we had to visit before the reception. The ceremony took place at their church, the St. Agnes Catholic Church in Arlington, Virginia and reception at the Key Bridge Marriott which had the most gorgeous view of the city. They hired one of the best bands I have ever seen, Prime Time Band, that rocked the house all night long and kept everyone moving! Everyone had so much fun and the day was filled with smiling faces everywhere I looked!

After moving back to the shore last week, one thing I had to do was get back on the water as soon as possible. I had the pleasure of photographing the Selina II, a gorgeous historic catboat in action. Captain Iris Clarke is a granddaughter of the original owner and sails this boat with ease out of St. Michaels, Maryland just about every day! Selina II is available for private charters, weddings, sailing lessons, and more. They know how to spoil their guests with champagne, wine tastings, and seafood dinners. Check out their website for more information. It was a blast getting back on the water and watching the magic of this boat!

Megan and Bryon chose the most beautiful fall day for their wedding and the perfect burnt orange color to match those changing leaves. The day started out with a first look and Bryron had a priceless expression when he saw Megan all dressed up! Next, a sweet ceremony was performed by Megan’s brother, Chris, at the Blacksburg United Methodist Church. Each guest took a part in the ceremony during a ring warming, where the rings where passed to each guest who could each bless Megan and Byron’s union. Afterwards, the newlyweds and bridal party all stopped on campus at a spot where the trees matched their colors perfectly, I couldn’t get over it! The party began at German Club Manor next, and some great dancing happened all night long. Congratulations Megan and Byron!

Emily and Greg are very outdoorsy so after watching it rain all morning and afternoon the day of their wedding, they said it doesn’t matter, we are getting married outside no matter what! As luck turned out, the steady rain changed into sprinkles and then stopped just for their ceremony like it was planned. Another amazing thing about this wedding is that Emily and Greg planned it in just 3 months! Maridor in Roanoke, Virginia was the very first venue they looked at and the last as they quickly decided it was the perfect spot for their marriage. The day started out with a first look followed by some time outside in the rain which turned out to be very romantic. The reception was a blast and Jimmy Buffett songs filled the air, in fact the last song of the night was “Fins” and Emily taught everyone the right moves!

Alison and Andrew are high school sweethearts from Radford, Virginia and they couldn’t be more perfect for each other. During a walk on the beach, Andrew popped the question and their dream wedding was made a reality just last weekend at the Rockwood Manor in Dublin, Virginia. A cold front had come through but everyone braved it outside the entire day and night and had a blast! The setting was so gorgeous with the bright blue sky, the outdoor ceremony under the trees, the vineyard, and the patio covered with twinkling lights. I loved all of the happy smiles I saw from everyone throughout the entire day!
