It was a day after my 31st birthday. We found ourselves in Maryland with cameras, and film, but this one was different. A small, intimate affair in the realest sense, Lauren & Steve eloped at Strong Mansion. Photographed on Portra 400, Portra 800, and Ilford HP5 film using a Contax 645 and Contax g2. Film developed and scanned by Richard Photo Lab.

We photographed this Great Marsh Estate wedding in October 2019 for Ashley & Kerrenton. They are wonderful people with open minds and open hearts. They inspire us. Our time with them was time spent with friends. Also, they took us for a ride in their Tesla.

Corrie and Ben married at an intimate wedding ceremony at THE TIDE’S INN, a quiet, luxury resort hidden between a golf course and an inlet of water that runs to the Rappahannock River, and just beyond that, the Chesapeake Bay.

Our wonderful friend Emily Artistry was there for hair & makeup, and florals were supplied by The Wild Bunch, a floral designer based in nearby Kilmarnock, Virginia, Michael’s hometown.  

Corrie’s daughters provided laughs and smiles, and they caught blue crabs from the water after the ceremony. At the end, they danced together to live music at the Inn, and after that, guests that didn’t know them wept and applauded. 

Go far, fly near, to the stars away from here

Laura & Connor’s Pippin Hill wedding was featured recently in MAGNOLIA ROUGE MAGAZINE.

 

Article:  “HOW DID YOU MEET? Connor and I met on my favorite holiday weekend, 4 th of July. I was just finishing up school at the University of Georgia. One of my good high school friends was in summer training for the Navy not too far away in Columbus, GA. So I invited him up to Athens for the 4th . I told him to bring some friends along. He didn’t really know Connor but Connor was randomly in the same training squad as him. So along Connor came to Athens.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL: Connor completely surprised me by proposing on a secluded beach in Hawaii. He had all the details and timing perfectly planned out including a photographer disguised as a beach-goer who captured it all.

TELL US ABOUT FINDING YOUR WEDDING DRESS: My mom, best friend and me took a trip to New York City. I tried on many dresses over two days and found the one at the last place we had an appointment. The dress was just perfect for me and we thought it would work well with the venue.

WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR WEDDING STYLE? I wanted something that was romantic and dreamy but yet still had a little edge and uniqueness to it.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS LOCATION? The views and setting are breathtaking. We also loved the option to have an outdoor ceremony and then move right inside for the reception. The setup of the facility made for the perfect wedding venue. It was also great that we could great ready on site. Not to mention I love wine so being at a winery was icing on the cake!

DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING FLOWERS: I love, love flowers so I know I wanted a lot of luscious flowers! I also knew that I didn’t want them to look too traditional or structured. The florist did an amazing job making my bouquet huge and looking slightly “undo” giving it an organic sensual feeling. She used a lot of different types of flowers including orchids and
roses but all a light pink and creamy whites. And there were unique greenery hoops hung from the ceiling in the reception area to add a great vertical element to the space.

FAVOURITE DETAIL OF THE DAY: The outdoor views of the gorgeous hydrangeas lining the pathway down to the ceremony and the rolling mountains in the horizon & flowers all made for the most beautiful scene for our ceremony.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE OUT TO A COUPLE PLANNING THEIR WEDDING? Try to enjoy the process and take moments to step away from the planning process and see the big picture, so you don’t get too wrapped up in the small stuff. Remember the day is about you and your fiancé!

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT? Dancing the night away with everyone! Our band was awesome and they had everyone out on the dance floor.

ANY OTHER DETAILS THAT HELP TELL THE STORY OF YOUR DAY?
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR HONEYMOON: We had a marvelous honeymoon in Greece! Santorini was beautiful and so romantic!

IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WOULD CHANGE OR DO DIFFERENTLY? Nope!”
