Thank you Heddy and Richard!

I just got Heddy and Richards contract in the mail which means August 29, 2009 is now officially booked. They came all the way from North Carolina to meet with me. Their reception is going to be at the Holiday Inn in Martinsburg WV. A great place to have a reception if your still looking. I’m so excited that I’ll get to use my new lenses at their wedding and all my weddings upcoming in 2009. It’s going to be so much fun!


Michelle and Roger, a Valentine’s Day made for love

Michelle and Rogers wedding was my first wedding of 2009 and was on Valentine’s Day. They were such a fun couple, rolling all over the stage and everything for me. They have known each other since they were kids meeting each other at a campground. Roger proposed to Michelle on Christmas Eve back in 2005 so they have been engaged quite a while. Their wedding took place at Harvest Community Church in Martinsburg WV and their reception was held at the VFWalso located in Martinsburg WV. Michelle found her perfect dress at David’s Bridal in Hagerstown MD and her beautiful flowers at Ginger’s in Martinsburg WV. Their wedding cake was made at Martin’s. Check out the ultra sexy cake topper!!!



Below is an image I didn’t like the empty wall behind her so look at the image below I added a little interest to the background












Check out this topper!!! How Sexy. Michelle is a Slumber Parties consultant so if you need a fun night out with the girls check her out!

Lynne and Larry married on Dec. 29, 2008 last wedding of 2008

Lynne and Larry’s  wedding was my last for 2008 and what a beautiful wedding it was! Lynne’s son introduced the two and after a very long engagement, they were finally married Dec. 29, 2008 on a Monday. The ceremony was held at St. Peters in Harpers Ferry WV. The reception was held at Thomas Hall right behind the church. Lynne found her perfect dress at The Barn in Inwood WV. All the beautiful flowers were made at Depot Florist.













Thank you Maria and Zach

Last night Maria and Zach became my newest clients. They are getting married July 19, 2009 just one day after my birthday (hint, hint). They are planning to marry at the Purple Iris in Martinsburg WV. I can tell it’s going to be a great wedding Maria’s got a lot of ideas. Lucy for them their wedding is on a Sunday so they were able to take advantage of my off-season and non-Saturday deal which gives you 25% off your entire contract. Once again thank you for becoming my newest clients.
