It is always a treat when I discover a new wedding venue. I was thrilled to find Weatherly Farm in Newbury, Maryland. Set on banks of the Potomac river, it offers a great lawn for games and mingling, a beautiful home for preparation, and a gorgeous water view for the ceremony. I photographed the wedding of Laura and Arthur last summer and I know they had a fantastic day. It started with Arthur and the guys relaxing and getting ready on one end of the house while Laura and the ladies drank champagne and prepared on the other end. There was an emotional moment after Laura had finished putting her wedding dress on and her Dad saw her for the first time. Not a dry eye in the room. After a touching ceremony everyone headed over to the big white tent where a live band kept the party going all night. We captured a few dramatic sunset images and a sparkler send-off ended a truly magical day. I hope to return soon.
