Jeannie + Ray: Wedding In Fairfield with Julie Cheshire

Wedding

What is not to love about Jeannie & Ray? They are just the most adorable, sweetest people you could ever meet. Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography and I shot their engagement session last year in Golden Gate Park and we were just so surprised that their wedding was already upon us. Here’s a glimpse of their engagement pics.



They were just as sweet as we had remembered. Jeannie is just beautiful. She is constantly smiling and is just a kind, genuine person. We were with her as she got ready for her big day. (Her Jimmy Choos were just to die for!)




I absolutely loved the flower she had in her hair. This is actually one of my favorite pictures of the day.


She couldn’t have asked for a better day. Not too hot, not too cold. The event was held at Green Valley Country Club in Fairfield. The setting was beautiful.


I loved the girls’ bouquets. The bright yellow aster looked fabulous against the espresso-colored satin gowns.


We wandered around the golf course after the ceremony for some shots of just them and we only got shooed off the course once!


I really, really liked the touches they gave to their reception. The favors were little jars of walnuts from ray’s family’s farm. And all of the tables were named after places from Lord of the Rings. There was of course Gondor and The Shire among others. Too cool!


They danced their first dance to 311’s Love Song, Jeannie beaming the whole time.


There were some excellent toasts, including one by Ray’s brother and best man. He brought out Ray’s adolescent poster of Carmen Electra and bid her farewell since ray now had a far more important female in his life.


And then the party was on! It was a great group of people and they had the dance floor packed all night long with some fancy stepping and lots of laughter. (And I think they had a little captain in them by the end.)


It was a great day and, after 8 years of dating, they were finally husband and wife! Thanks, Jeannie and Ray, you guys were awesome!

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you
311, Love Song

It wasn’t the crazy hot and humid weather in DC that produced the moisture coming from all members of Marisa and Tim’s families the day of the wedding.  They were emotions, plain and simple.  Tears of happiness all around. But before I get into that, I want to talk about Marisa’s gown.  Marisa knew exactly what she wanted – boat neck, long sleeves, and an open back.  She visited 3 shops until she found it.  It was a gown fit for a princess and Marisa was the image of elegance in it.  To top it all off, her pink, sparkly, patent leather Kate Spade peep-toe heels were nothing short of amazing! Her gift from Tim was a diamond neckla ...

Kat and Dan married on a crisp, sunny day in December at one of my favorite venues in the area, Aldie Mansion.  The space was perfect for Kat who looked like she stepped out of a glamorous 1920s novel.  Her soft blonde hair fell along her face with an antique hair clasp.  Her gown (the 49th one she tried on!) was an incredible lace and beaded number that had been discontinued but she sourced and brought in.  The fluttering sleeves and delicate lace along the bottom were additions and I can’t imagine the dress without them. Leave it to Kat to accessorize with deep red, velvet pumps. She ...
