Sometimes, the timing just isn’t right.
Blair and Rick were first married years ago, but in their youth they couldn’t seem to figure out how to make their relationship work together, and so they divorced, and closed the chapter on their lives together.
Or so they thought. When fate brought them back together again six years later, both single and both in very different life stages than before—Blair the talented owner Sweet Blossoms, a thriving floral design business outside of Washington DC, and Rick the father of two young, sweet, and smart boys—Blair didn’t expect that they would unearth their feelings for each other. And yet, there they were.
Witnessing this colorful elopement vision come to life at Glen Echo Park—hands down one of the coolest wedding venues in the Washington, DC area—was an absolute dream. Between the cheeky neon lights, the bright pops of color and the ornate Spanish ballroom, every inch of this amazing venue was full of inspiration and fun. Add in Abby and Zay’s bold, playful love, a dash of rainbow flower clouds, and a ton of nostalgic inducing carnival-inspired details, and we had ourselves a recipe for an insanely beautiful day. Scroll down to see for yourself!
They had been friends of friends. Until one evening they finally met, sitting near each other at group bar outing by kismet, chatting the evening away together while Liz ate Kevin’s side of fries. He was a med school student and she was a nurse, and they had so much in common: long nights filled […]
I’ve held off on sharing this wedding day for far too long. It’s not for lack of excitement. Possibly the opposite. I might have just have too much love for Ally and Clay and their beautiful celebration that it feels way too special to let it go out into the world. And that’s because every […]
Here in Northern Virginia, it’s beginning to look a lot like summer. After enduring some bitter cold days in the first month of the year, February seems determined to jump right past any sort of winter finale or spring transition and dip us right into the enveloping warmth of a 78-degree day in early June. […]
SAMMY & VARUN: part ii of iii Let’s go back in time to taste some magic—some Sammy and Varun magic—shall we? It was a Tuesday morning in October of 2016, and we’d just wrapped shooting one unfairly beautiful engagement session in the middle of a perfect Washington D.C. sunrise. As we walked back towards our […]
The greatest stories, the stories that stick with our hearts the longest and transform our souls the most, are almost never the simplest stories. Great stories are made from the unexpected moments. The twists and the turns, the mountains and the valleys, or, for Tori and Will, the weather and the bus. Over 5 years […]
“It was always you.” Displayed prominently in the midst of a sea of photos that told the tales of their families’ long and storied loves, were these words. And I’m not sure if these four words have ever fit a pair more beautifully than they fit Val and Brian. When they were growing up down […]
It was a cold one. In fact, arguably the first Saturday of the year with a decent chill in the air. But looking back at these images, and remembering the love that filled the Atrium at Meadowlark, all I can seem to remember is the warm joy that followed Liz and Jeff everywhere they went. I […]
I’m still not sure that this entire day wasn’t completely a dream. First, there’s the location: a wedding on Saint Simon’s Island, Georgia. It’s the place where Laura’s mother grew up and where Laura spent her summers as a child and now where Laura’s parents call home. I’m not sure if it’s possible to stand […]
