Alicia and Matthew had a small wedding in Shepherdstown. Matthew is from Belgium and they met while playing sports in England and it must have been love at first sight because you couldn’t keep these two apart. The wedding was at St Agnes Church in Shepherdstown and the reception was at The Yellow Brick Bank. I can’t wait to go back there and try the Shepherds Pie. These two were certainly in love, they were the first couple I ever had to ask to stop kissing. I guess distance does make the heart grow fonder.
Alicia wore her mother’s dress, not to many brides do that anymore.
The following images were taken at Alicia’s Grandmother’s home. What a gorgious property! I would want to have picnics every day by that lake.
Congratulations Alicia and Matthew. I hope you two are finally together here in America.
I love Heather and Jamie and I love how they made their wedding their own. They had an Irish theme all the way down to the flowers and bridesmaids dresses. They had an outdoor wedding at the Gazebo at Cacapon State Park. It was the perfect time of year for an outdoor wedding. The Fall foliage looked great. The reception was held at the lodge in one of the banquet rooms. The really cool bridesmaids dresses and wedding gown were made by Nyla Kelley at Sew Perfect. The tuxedos came from Classic Tuxedos. All of the flowers came from Winchester Floral. The wedding cake and all the pies were made at Cacapon State Park resort. The DJ at the reception was Hampton Thomas from Special Occasions and he did a great job of keeping the party going with Irish music. Heather and Jamie also had a videographer from LCA Productions and a Carriage from the Shenandoah Carriage Company.
I LOVE these dresses. I would wear one every day, along with my pajamas if it was socially acceptable.
Heather was so relaxed and happy even when we were running behind. That’s the way to be girls on your wedding day. Just enjoy it !!!!
Jamie was a natural at posing. He made my job really easy. You might want to consider a modeling job 😉
Heather and her dad coming in the carriage. What a special ride that must have been. Her dad is such a nice man I got to get to know him in my car on the way to meet Heather for getting ready shots.
I love carriages so I had to get alot of shots with it.
I felt it was important to note that Jamie made the knife himself that they used to cut the cake. Way to go Jamie, it looked great!
I love the way her dress would fly out when she was dancing. It looks so cool!
On this post I avoided all kissing shots. 😛 Well except one.
They were married October 4, 2008 at St. Paul’s on the Hill in Winchester VA. A lovely little church that my GPS couldn’t find. I almost missed the rehearsal but got there just in time. Their reception was at the Piccadilly’s Brew Pub in Winchester. I’ve been there before and I never new they had a recetion room upstairs. It’s a great restaurant if your looking for somewhere to go. It happens to be my brother-in-laws favorite restaurant. The reception was alot of fun. Rachel and Daniel were a party couple and so were their friends.
A nice traditional hands and ring shot. You got to remind me to do this one
sometimes I forget, it’s certainly a classic shot to have.
I really like to do shots like the one below. I think its gorgeous!
This was during their first dance. I think they were enjoying themselves.
Here I go with the kissing shots again. I guess I just like to make my couples kiss!!!
Meghan and Andrew were a lovely couple and so excited about getting married. They didn’t have an engagement session so their wedding day was the first time I shot with them. Their ceremony was held at Pikeside United Methodist Church a truly warm and welcoming church. As you can see from the images below it was a gorgious setting for a wedding. The reception was at St. Leo’s Fellowship Hall in Inwood. Alot of my clients have their receptions at St. Leos. They do a great job. It is also a wonderful place to have the wedding ceremony as well. They also used DJ Jeff Baker for the reception entertainment. I love Jeff and his wife Amy, they are always so warm and fun to work with. They make every reception they’re at a night to remember. Check out the pictures below and see for yourself.
The image below is my favorite from this wedding. When I saw that big window I new exactly what I wanted to do with it.
Here is Amy, Jeff’s wife, with all the children. While the adults are still eating Jeff and Amy will do the chicken dance with the kids. At the end each kid that joins the fun gets a prize.
So funny! I just looked at all the images of the couple and they are all kissing images!!! Oh well, kissing is a good thing right!!! Maghan and Andrew, thank you for letting me be apart of your wedding day.
Julianne and Bradley were a very sweet couple. They helped me fulfill my dream of shooting in a field of flowers during their engagement session. Thanks so much!!! They got married at Central Chapel located on back creek valley road. Their reception was at Heritage Hall in Inwood WV. Julianne purchased her very beautiful dress from The Barn in Inwood and Bradley’s Tux came from Classic Tuxedos in Winchester. I also shot her sisters wedding in July. Below are a couple of my fav shots from the wedding.
I know I’ve been terrible about the whole blog thing but now my busy season is over so I’m going to try and catch up the next two months while I don’t have any weddings going on.
Tiffany and Bryan Tied the knot Sept 13, 2008 at Cacapon State Park. It rained during the rehearsal but the wedding day turned out pretty good. They had their ceremony at the Batt Shelter and the reception at the Bath house. Both locations were very rustic and beautiful. At the reception they used GS Productions as their DJ who did an excellent job. Here are a couple of my favs from the day below.
Tiffany got her Dress from The Barn. I thought it was a beautiful dress!!!
How Often does a Groom get to wear flip flops on his wedding day. Perhaps not often enough.
