Palazzo 1837 Restorante Wedding | Outdoor Wedding Ceremony | Washington Pa Wedding Venues | Matt & Micki

First- I need to preface this post by saying that Matt and Micki ROCK!  They are so cool, fun and nice.  They’re totally the couple that you’d want to meet out somewhere and end up having a few drinks with.  Not only are they both good looking- but they are laid back and have great sense of humors.  I definitely burned a few calories that day laughing at all of the shenanigans.  I love to laugh- so I was enjoying myself immensely.

Being the cool, untraditional people that they are- Matt and Micki decided to hold their entire event at a historic, colonial house built in 1837.  If you’d like to know more about Palazzo’s click HERE.  The inside of the building was super cool and there were lots on neat little nooks and rooms to photograph.  The actually ceremony itself was held on the lawn with the front porch being the altar.  The grounds and exterior of the house were perfect for photographs- and I was in heaven.

You may notice that there seems to be something a little strange with the above picture- and you would be correct.  Yes, that is Matt’s Dad with his vest, tie and suspenders without a shirt.  He was the leader of the shenanigan havers!!


Ok- so thanks to Pinterest I have gotten this photo request several times from brides.  I must admit- that I am a little surprised with how much they get into it.  I showed the groomsmen the image and they ran with it.

On that same paper Micki included the pic above for the bridesmaids to mimic.  Well, the guys being the comedians that they are- they were adamant that they be able to execute this pose.  And execute they did.


Ok, so apparently Darth Vader has a death grip that he uses to strangle his victims from afar- news to me.  Another great suggestion from the “comedians” and great job from Micki.

SPARKLERS!  My new obsession.  =)

AMAZING DAY!  I had sooo much fun.  Thank you to everyone and congratulations Matt &  Micki!

Sheraton Station Square Wedding | Eric & Stacey Preview

Stacey is a photographers dream.  I hardly had to direct her at all.  She definitely increased my exclamations of “beautiful!” “perfect!” “that’s it!”  All of my favorite adjectives 😉  During our engagement session I noticed how at ease both Stacey and Eric were with the camera and most importantly with each other.  They have been together since sophomore year of high school and you can definitely sense the essence of partnership.

When I arrived onsite to the hotel, Stacey opened the door and she sparkled!  She was so breathtaking.  She looked so happy!  I found Eric down in the lobby at the bar– and he too- was calm as a cucumber.  The ceremony was meaningful and heartfelt.  As Stacey and Eric spoke their vows to one another I smiled to myself.  I could feel the excitement between the two; excited to begin the next chapter in their lives.

We remained at the hotel for pictures.  I scouted out a nice courtyard area which we later found out that the only access was through the pool.  I can only imagine what it would have been like to have come up for air only to see a bride and a whole wedding party walking past the lounge chairs.  The weather outside was still a little chilly- but perfect for us.  In the small space that we had- I was able to get some amazing images of the couple.  I truly believe that this was in part due to how much they genuinely love one another.

My jaw dropped too the first time I saw these shoes!

Look how huge their smiles are!
