Tim and Melissa are the latest and hottest in Airforce officer newlyweds. The rain held off for them so that they could enjoy a beautiful outdoor fall wedding on the grounds of King Family Vineyard. We had a great time spending the weekend with them and their families who converged from all across the US.

I had to show the cool groom’s cake from the rehearsal dinner… by Maliha Creations.
The groom and groomsmen were hiding a little flare under their dress uniform jackets!
One of the many things that Jason and I absolutely love about our job is getting to meet people and learning about all of the wonderful cultures and customs in our world. Our careers as wedding photographers started out in Washington DC, a hub of diversity and a magnitude of wedding culture inspiration. We have been fortunate to document so many weddings, each unique and special, and we love them all.
Artemis and Seth’s wedding was very unique, being that Artemis comes from a Iranian heritage and Seth is from Kentucky. Their wedding also took place inside Maggiano’s, a fine dining Italian restaurant located at the Tyson’s Galleria in Tyson’s Corner. Artemis’ father officiated their beautiful ceremony beside a traditional Persian wedding spread that Artemis and Seth sat behind. Their formal portraits were shot both inside the lobby and outside of the Ritz Carlton where the lovely couple stayed. Here are a few images from their fun and exciting weekend!
Seth and Artemis see each other for the first time!
Sofreh Aghd – the wedding spread
The spread contains many items, all to symbolize different qualities that the couple would hope to bring into their new life together.
During the service and the readings, married female relatives of the couple hold over the couple’s head a white silky Ghand cloth. Two pieces of crystallized sugar called Kalleh Ghand shaped like cones are rubbed together, showering the couple with white powder. This symbolic act is meant to sweeten the couple’s life.

Capon Springs, WV is one of those places that you have to see and experience to believe. Tucked away in the foothills of the Alleghenies, Capon Springs Farm is a heavily wooded natural spring camp resort. It has a very casual, laid back and very campy atmosphere. Christie’s family has been vacationing there for years. Being that it was a favorite place to relax and enjoy each others company, it was only natural that Christie and Guy celebrate their wedding with their family and friends there. Jason and I got to share a cabin with some of the guests and our friend Rev. Claire Goodman who officiated the ceremony. Here are a few snapshots from that day.
I love Christie’s cowboy kicks!
Emily and Dan’s wedding took place on a beautiful family farm. We were graciously offered to occupy their guest cabin on the night of the rehearsal and wedding.
I love the accents of handpicked cotton.
Dan and Emily are such a sweet and beautiful couple.
Here are a few details….
This was the setting for the rehearsal dinner… isn’t it lovely?

I can’t believe that the forecast called for 100% chance of rain on the day of Emily and Ben’s wedding. It didn’t seem to bother them one bit, though! The bridesmaids were even adorned with cute rain boots! Congratulations Emily and Ben!
