And Micah makes three! It seemed that I had just finished this sweet families newborn session welcoming little Noah, when I got word that a new little one would be arriving. Micah came into the world just before my own little guy and I was lucky to spend a morning with them. It is clear that Micah’s older siblings are smitten with him. There were more than enough kisses or snuggles to go around. Between all of the snuggling and kissing and jumping, I can only imagine all the fun that is in store for them. Welcome to the world Micah. We are so glad you are here!

Nestled amongst the iconic DC sites like the Lincoln Memorial and the Martin Luther King Memorial is a small structure known as the DC War Memorial. It pays homage to the citizens of the District of Columbia who served during World War I. Robyn and Axel’s closest friends and family gathered here to share in an intimate ceremony on a Saturday morning in August. Their love story spans multiple countries (their relationship blossomed while studying in Dubai) and as a result, Robyn had the task of planning two weddings. Their second wedding will be quite the celebration in Mexico and will include hundreds of guest. In contrast this event was saved for a select few and was meant to draw on close relationships they shared with their family around them. The intimate atmosphere was evident, as guests passed a box of Ted’s Bulletin pop-tarts and posed for photos under the marble structure. Guests cheered as Robyn and Axel arrived hand-in-hand. The ceremony was short, but packed with meaning with several readings from each of their family. The small group allowed everyone to snag a photo with the couple before they headed to Chez Billy in Petworth for a filling brunch. At the end of this month, their celebration will end in Mexico and will have been quite the adventure. Until then, Robyn and Axel congratulations on your marriage and enjoy the ride.

He couldn’t stop looking at her and she couldn’t stop looking at him. There were lots of tears, a LOT of kissing and quite a few squeals every time their her name was announced. Jackie and Patrick tied the knot this past weekend at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club and it was quite the event. There will be more to come of this gorgeous day, but until then enjoy these two and all the love between them.

Nestled in the beautiful Maryland countryside, Jackie and Doug tied the knot at the gorgeous Mansion as Hunt Valley Country Club. The skies were ominous, but held off for the perfect cool August afternoon. Jackie and Doug were surrounded by their family and friends who made sure that they knew just how loved they were. From a custom wine box with letters they locked away during their ceremony, to her mother’s dress being used for the bouquet and cake table, the sentimental details were representative of who they were surrounded by. Jackie and Doug, congratulations on your marriage and cheers to a lifetime of happiness.
