Last summer, I did an engagement session with Alyssa and Mike at Barrel Oak Winery. It was a very fun and very hot August day, and right away I knew their wedding was going to be an event to look forward to! And sure enough, what a day! Alyssa had kept me informed about many of the fun details they were planning and it was a blast to see it all come together and to be there to photograph it! We started at Alyssa's hotel room at the Bethesda North Marriott before moving onto the University of Maryland's chapel, and finally the Strathmore Music Center for their cocktail-style reception. The fun decor fit their style perfectly! And boy, did this crowd have a blast...just scroll down to see! Congratulations again, Alyssa and Mike!
Alyssa's bridesmaids looked on while she got buttoned into her dress (there were A LOT of buttons!).
This is definitely one of my favorite shots of the day. Check out Alyssa's dad getting a high-five as they processed down the aisle!
What I love about this photo is that you cannot only see the love on Alyssa's face as she looks at Mike, but you can also see Alyssa's parents looking on at each other in the foreground. Too sweet!
Alyssa and Mike requested a photo by the large Maryland "M" of flowers. Even though I went to a rival school, I have to admit that it's a really pretty campus! (Do I get brownie points for saying that?)
