Maile and Archie’s wedding took place at Avenmar in Leonardtown, Md. this past September during a week of absolutely insane weather. If an earthquake and hurricane weren’t enough in the weeks prior, Mother Nature sure gave Maryland about all it could handle in that week before Maile and Archie were set to tie the knot in an outdoor ceremony. There was never-ending downpours, devastating flooding, mudslides, sinkholes…Maryland was literally falling apart at the seams.
But then something happened…Friday evening, the rain stopped, the sun came out, and it didn’t leave :) And I think many of us took a big deep breath and said our thanks.
Maile and Archie were married 9.10.11 on one of the most gorgeous days Maryland had seen in what felt like forever. I think it the local news actually noted at the beginning of October that it was only sunny one day in September. 9.10.11 must have been it.
Maile made an absolutely stunning bride, and her handsome groom Archie didn’t disappoint. Surrounded by their very closest friends and family, the two committed themselves to one another for the rest of their lives. The beautiful and reception to follow was full of tears, laughter, jokes, but most of all…the air was thick with the love and passion these two clearly share for one another.
Although I have deep roots in Maryland where I grew up, I am absolutely in love with all things southern. I live on a farm in a small town in South Carolina with my handsome husband, my beautiful step-son, our two yellow lab fur-kids, and three spoiled horses. My blog is a journal of sorts. It’s where I can share all about the things I love so much: my family, our life together, and of course all of the amazing and wonderful people and pets whose story I get to tell.
I love collaborating with laid-back and down- to-earth couples who appreciate the value their wedding images will have for the rest of their lives, and I believe in unique weddings that are truly designed around two people and who they are together. I strive to create images that are emotional, organic, fresh, and genuine, but that will remain timeless twenty, thirty, or sixty years down the road. I believe in printed images, developing friendships with my clients, and having a completely relaxed and enjoyable wedding experience. Each and every story I get to tell is unique and I truly enjoy sharing all of the little pieces that together form this beautiful relationship.
I am currently booking weddings for 2013 and 2014, so please get in touch below to start the journey of documenting your love.
