Emily and Guilherme’s wedding was the perfect combination of emotions and whimsy. (The bride “Rick-rolled” the groom during her vows= AWESOME.) They got married in Glen Echo Park, a restored Art Deco amusement park outside of Washington, D.C. that was once the site of civil rights protests and is now a re-imagined playground, event venue and art space. The carousel is the only ride still in operation, and it was Emily’s “bridal wish” that all of the guests join the newlyweds in their first carousel ride as husband and wife. The reception was held in what was once the bumper car pavilion, decorated with paper poms and rainbow streamers. Guests came from as far away as Brazil for brunch, toasts, the horah, and cake that included a delicate rabbit topper in honor of Errol, Emily’s beloved bunny. (It’s not an accident that the bride and groom are pictured in this first photo with the carousel rabbit.) Thank you so much for having me be a part of your day! Mazel tov!

Julianne and Chris had no way of knowing when they booked back in January that our engagement session would end up taking place during a record-breaking heat wave. Our session took place in Ocean City, MD, where Chris spent his summers with his grandparents, and I myself have happy summer memories. That said, never before has it been so hot that walking on the Boardwalk was like walking on the surface of the sun! Combine the heat wave with the crowds from Mountain Dew extreme skateboarding championship, and all I can say is THANK YOU- for braving the crowds, persevering in the heat, getting up at dawn, risking a parking ticket, waiting for the tram- really, for all of it, all in the name of getting the photos below. Thanks for letting me get to know you both a little better, for introducing me to the parents of the groom, for delicious breakfast biscuits, for welcoming my mom, for sharing your music, and for planning your wedding in winter! Can’t wait!
