Dodging major thunderstorms and flooding, it was fun to return to the DC area again last weekend to photograph the wedding of musicians Leslie and RJ. A few years ago, I had photographed a wedding they attended. So when they started planning their wedding 18 months ago, they remembered me (the ultimate compliment!).
Their wedding was on the lawn of the State House in the adorable historic St. Mary's City in Southern Maryland, the bride's hometown. Ominous skies held off just long enough for a beautiful riverside ceremony and a tented reception on the grounds.
Some of you might recall a story of a garden wedding a few years back where a LARGE unwelcome snake interrupted the ceremony and caused the onlooking guests to flee (myself included!)? Same place. Luckily, the snake did not make an appearance.
Thanks again, Leslie & RJ! I loved being a part of your special day and really enjoyed your families and guests. Stay in touch!
