What could be better than a Silver Swan Bayside wedding for two avid sailors and adventurers? Celeste and Farley’s fall wedding along the Chesapeake Bay was the perfect intimate celebration for them and their families. It was the perfect warm day and crisp evening to gather outside, enjoy the beautiful location and witness their love for each other.
Lyndsey and Nick’s Saint Petersburg Florida Wedding was scheduled to take place in March 2020. It was one of our first events of the year that was surrounded by uncertainty, questioning whether it was safe to gather or not. It was eventually decided that it should be rescheduled for a time that would be safer, hopefully early 2021.
Like all of our couples this past year, we truly felt for Lyndsey and Nick. We were so excited for this wedding because it had been one we were hoping to be a part of for quite a long time! Adam first met Lyndsey when working on the NPR Music team photoing the Newport Folk and Jazz Festivals (Lyndsey is an editor for NPR and Adam worked freelance for them before joining the official Newport Festivals photography team. You can find more of his music photography work over at adamkissick.com). Lyndsey had always been so complementary of our wedding work and had said that one day when she got married she wanted us to photo it! So we anxiously awaited that day when we got the message that she wanted us to come to Florida for her wedding! We were so excited to come down and capture the wedding of someone who had been so sweet and supportive of us!
Thankfully the stars aligned earlier than expected and Lyndsey and Nick were able to have an incredibly beautiful and intimate backyard wedding in the fall of 2020. It may not have been what was originally planned, but the feeling throughout was that this day was better than anything they could have ever dreamed.
Claire and Jay’s Washington, DC wedding, complete with Kennedy Center Wedding Portraits, was our first wedding during the pandemic.
The time leading up to this day was so uncertain. From rescheduling their cherry blossom engagement session in March to eventually seeing the need to ultimately cancel it, we all were unsure if this day was going to be able to happen in 2020.
We were so happy that Claire and Jay were able have their wedding this August! It may not have looked exactly like it was originally planned, but on their day it was clear that all that mattered was they were married and that they were able to celebrate with the ones they loved.
Honestly, that is what we have loved the most about these smaller, more intimate celebrations. What may be scaled down in size is in no way scaled down in love.
Kelly and Caden could not have asked for a more perfect day for their West Point wedding! It was a warm, sunny day in Upstate New York and these two already had a lot to celebrate. Fresh from finishing school, with Caden having graduated from West Point just days before their wedding, these two were eager to begin the next chapter of their lives together!
On a beautiful day in September, Sam and Brad’s family and close friends gathered together for a joyful Charles River Museum of Industry wedding. We were excited for the chance to work with Sam and Brad, having met them at their close friends Allison and Charlie’s wedding the past June in Vermont.
Set in a restored mill on the bank of the Charles River, the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation stood out to Sam and Brad as they rode by it on one of their frequent bike rides around Waltham, Massachusetts. We were eager to capture their wedding celebration in an area that held significant meaning to them.
When Christine and Zak asked us to photo their Old Town Alexandria Wedding at the Torpedo Factory we excitedly said yes! Another chance to photo at this unique venue? Returning to charming Old Town Alexandria for portraits? An opportunity to work with such a fun, sweet couple? Yes, yes and yes!
On August 25 Irene and Ryan gathered with their family and friends for their Washington Street United Methodist Church wedding. Irene was dressed in a beautiful white and gold sari and Ryan wore a classic black suit. He, his brother, father and Irene’s father all wore bow ties made from the extra fabric from his mother’s dress.
Together this stunning couple were joined in marriage in front of their family and friends in a beautiful ceremony that blended the traditions of both Irene and Ryan’s families.
This Memorial Day friends and family gathered in Wilmington, North Carolina to celebrate Julia and Chandler’s Saint Thomas Preservation Hall wedding and oh my what a beautiful wedding it was!
We were excited for the opportunity to work with this family again since photoing Chandler’s sister Ashley’s wedding in Asheville and their cousin Jessica’s wedding in Las Cruces, New Mexico. This fantastic family knows how to throw a party and we were eager for another opportunity to capture some of their magic on the dance floor!
This Science Museum of Virginia wedding was definitely one for the books. You know how everyone always says such wonderful things about the bride and groom on their wedding day? Well when it comes to Joanna and Jordan every wonderful thing said about them is true. Everything. Which is why we were so excited and honored to be invited to spend the day with them, capturing all of the joy and love that surrounded them on their special day!
We’ve been looking forward to their wedding for some time now. We’ve had the privilege of getting to know them as we’ve photoed Liz and Harry’s Alexandria wedding, Allison and Charlie’s Vermont wedding and Erica and Dan’s Boston wedding. We love this group of friends that they are part of and that we now feel a part of as well. So needless to say we were excited for everyone to gather again to celebrate their next set of friends getting married!
