A+D’s Cherry Blossom Session at Meadowlark Gardens

Meadowlark Gardens_014

What better way to welcome spring to DC then spending the afternoon with Amanda and Dan, wandering the gorgeous grounds of Meadowlark Gardens?  We were just in time for the garden’s cherry trees to be in bloom, so we took advantage of all the lovely pink petals that surrounded us.  It was truly a gorgeous setting and a lovely backdrop for A + D, who will be getting married in two months at Trump National Golf Club!!!  I can’t wait.  It’s going to be a stunning wedding!

Kristen + Nate at 1840s Plaza in Baltimore

I would happily photograph these two every weekend!  First of all, I don’t know that I have ever seen a happier, more energetic and elated groom in my life.  Nate is a bundle of happy energy and he was SO excited to finally marry Kristen after a two year engagement.  And then there’s Kristen, who is a lovely creative with a great sense of style and an old soul.  Nate and Kristen together are utter perfection.  I love everything about N+K, and I would pay them to photograph the two of them again.  I had such a good time with them on Saturday and their wedding was just gorgeous.  Also, it rained all day on Saturday, and although this would distress many Brides & Grooms, neither Nate or Kristen even said a word about it to me.  They were just happy to be getting married and the inconvenient weather wasn’t even an issue for them.  I love these two, and I wish them all of the happiness in the world.  And I hope to see them again soon – maybe for a stylized shoot.  :)
