I’m noticing a trend with my 2017 weddings where the weather forecast has the potential to doom the day…and then doesn’t. Such was the case with this stunning wedding I photographed at Bretton Woods Recreation Center, located in Germantown, Maryland. An hour before I was supposed to start photographing, the skies opened up and POURED like it was the end of the world. I literally sat in my car for twenty minutes after pulling up to the venue (early), silently freaking out and willing the storm to disappear. It went on it’s merry way just before the start of the ceremony, and the bride and groom ended up having a beautiful ceremony -outdoors, yay!- surrounded by their nearest and dearest family and friends.
I love the sense of family and legacy that the bride and groom brought in throughout their day. From the heirloom tie bar and engagement ring (isn’t it a STUNNER?), to the florals the bride’s mother created, the family veil that sparkled with intricate beading, and the many, many family members that flew in from all over the world to be present, this day was unforgettable.
